POkemon Go! Elf on the Shelf, and GPS? They all may be fun and useful, but “do” help map the insides of your homes (voluntarily??) — Google maps can go and see anywhere, and see anything, and now, many places you can even see inside of. I remember looking up my parent’s house on Google maps once and It actually showed my dad walking through the front door with what appeared to be his clean work uniforms in hand…
Seriously, where is the privacy? I know I’m being slightly hypocritical here as I have multiple social-media accounts. I get it, but I mean, between that and the big censorship push online, it’s a bit hard to just be an artist and do, “Your thing!”
Take this for example; “We” (a.k.a. Takeo Tama, my company), were recently uploading a few titles for distribution and not once, but multiple times, we were told we had to change the title of the song for “this” or “that” reason; or also, that a track had to be not too short and not too long–”They”–also recently refused to put two tracks onto an 8-bit album. We have to completely change everything and put out only half an album here and the other half there…
It’s bullshit, really…..
“We” are constantly being told either in person, by e-mail, or by ‘algorithm’ decision that something we are doing is not right!! (Much like Tumblr and their out of control and senseless flagging of actually “non adult content” right now).
It’s ALL somewhere between sad and funny.
Excuse me for a minute and let me remind “them”/everyone that we are the artists and the company producing the art in the style we choose.
There is no gatekeeper. We will persist.
Art and Music programs are being cut nationwide, and the Internet is squashing us as well.
What the heck?!
The dictionary is shrinking every year and the technology and tracking is getting completely out of hand. Credit scores, social scores, and positive re-enforcement psychology shit, banned commercials, banned literature, banned podcasting, scripted news, mind control, and if that’s not enough, weather/climate manipulation…
Is it time to completely unplug? Is it time to join my Mennonite Ancestors, out on a rural farm and just play for a barn dance?
I can not guarantee they will approve of my style.
Is it time to go back to the 70s or 80s?
Is it even possible.
