rip posterous as of 2013-04-30


This too shall pass. The previous blog on Posterous will end there on 2013-04-30, as indeed Posterous will cease to exist from that date onwards. And it’s been “an incredible journey” indeed. Because after the total breakdown in service and communication of recent years the demise of Posterous came as no surprise (see earlier posts as imported here too) …

Inbetween blogs, there were a number of short posts exclusive to the Fb page of the [uzine] blog … and more music bla bla on the Reissue & Reprint Request Page (RRR).

    Reissue please!

    Hey and talking reissues: did you know we’ve launched a Reissue & Reprint Request Page (RRR) page on Fb aimed at record companies and the like, in view of getting rare & obscure recordings dug up and (re)released? Anyone can place his requests, spam will be deleted.


    twitter posterous fail !!

    Social media branding blabla my a***! Since Twitter has taken over Posterous, it’s one problem after the other and NO communication at all on the under or non performance!!


    My apologies: Posterous has changed its media player, and it no longer shows a track’s title and artist. Moreover, because of the unannounced change, audio tracks suddenly are no longer visible in my blog posts. Incredible but true, and very Posterous I’m sad to say. Should’ve stuck to WordPress …

    post lullaby soothing music

    "A merry go round in the park" (also but less fluently on Vimeo) is off Lullatone's "Songs That Spin In Circles" album (2010, co-produced with Secondary School). They've also devised the wonderful raindrop melody maker … and so much more

    Don’t like Arcade Fire, personally, and I’m not very impressed by this video either, but here’s a number of people treading new ground.
