Having a whale 🐳
Down at the Lexo

In my dreams

Truth is I’m a shadow passing through life
Only Such a life in my imagination

Bandcamp, Downloads, Streaming, and the Inescapably Bright Future

Bandcamp Daily

In light of a recent report that Apple will soon abandon music downloads (later denied, but undoubtedly containing a certain amount of inevitability), we thought we’d take a moment to update you on the state of Bandcamp’s business and our plans for the future.

Bandcamp grew by 35% last year.

They say oil, we say no fracking way
green and pleasant land, yeah right
green glow of stinking nuclear power
& pleasant only for the public school educated tax dogers
