I Love Felt

Time for me to respond to some comments, AKA piss off my fanbase:

First up:

Interesting rant about musicians trying new business models (Eagles anyone?) from a blogger who posts music for fans like me to download for nothing.

Is this a burn? I can’t tell. Two things though. First, don’t ever use The Eagles to back your argument, unless your argument is “Don Henley is a no-talent shit.” Secondly, going direct with a m massive retail chain isn’t a “new business model” in as much as it is just selling out on a massive level for a quick buck at the expense of your audience. In-Store exclusives are nothing new and AC/DC isn’t doing anything other than selling out what little credibility they had left by doing one.

hello there, this is germany.
you can be fucking glad to get only a few bands from us to you,
not in your worst nightmares you ever will imagine what other stuff
fills the shrunken little brains of our kids.
i give you that:
sound like techno for the muppetts show, voice like hillary c. on acid, title : you got the hottest ass in the world. anymore questions ?
tokio hotel is just the top of an enormous mountain of shit, better never digg at the bottom…

Okay, this is my favorite comment ever. First of all, it seems that it’s from the entire country of Germany – which is totally sweet. Secondly, he somehow convinces me that a combination of techno and the Muppets could be bad. Finally, the tone and slightly fragmented English make it sound like some fucked up message from the future, like a portent warning of darker things in the horizon. Kind of like that dream sequence from Prince Of Darkness.

Blue Man Group
I Feel Love (Jason Nevin’s Big Boom Remix)
I Feel Love (Jason Nevin’s Electromagnetic Remix)
I Feel Love (Shanghai Surprise Mix)
I Feel Love (Jason Nevin’s Big Room Dub)
I Feel Love (The Professionals Mix featuring Rob Swift and Anthony Saffery)
I Feel Love (Human Mix)
I Feel Love (Kap10Kurt Mix)
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking “Jesus dude, do we really need seven remixes of Blue Man Group’s cover of I Feel Love?” Yes, yes you do. Any version of “I Feel Love” is amazing. The Blue Man Group is amazing. Venus Hum (who is featured on this track) is doubly amazing. So these remixes are a amazing to the nth degree.

Depeche Mode
I Feel Loved (Danny Tenaglia’s Labor Of Love Edit)
I Feel Loved (Thomas Brinkmann Mix)
I Feel Loved (Chamber’s Remix)
See, first “I Feel Love” and then this. This is me trying to be clever. I got to stop doing that. Of course these two songs are night and day. While Donna Summer (or the chick from Venus Hum in this case) sound like their about to cum out of their ears, good old David Gahan sounds like he’s about to shoot up half of Berlin. It’s a different kind of love.

    I like your blog, you’ve got great taste, but man, that is one angry clown. No more CD stores, free downloading, artists need to get paid, even AC-DC. Sorry dude, stiff upper lip, that’s just the way it is.

    This is Georgia (the state).

    Digging the comments. I haven’t even listened to anything. It’s quite bee-yoo-ti-ful.

    Referencing “Prince of Darkness”? Even more so.

    well, yes it`s me again.
    and i´m afraid i am not talking for whole germany, i`m just an old fart who`s listening to music since a long time,and the longer i do, the less i understand all the others..
    mayby i read a bit to much kinky friedman storys, what could explain my rotten english, but the few things i get from your really extraordinary words i absolutly admire.
    anyway,i am proud to send you your famous comment,and if there will come any dark forces from germany to you again, i will tell you at first.
    thats all for now, i have to take my medicin.

    Thank you for making me laugh.

    On another note: At first I wished that Germany had not responded again, disillusioning me to your theories on the comment and foreboding messages of the future, but the comments about kinky friedman stories and ending it with having to take his medicine was a little redeeming.
