Music Update!

It was great fun doing my 1st live stream yesterday on my YouTube channel! I will do another one next week on the 23rd of November!

Yesterday I kept it going for an hour answering questions from followers and/or fans, it was a great experience which reminded me of how things used to be on Facebook, when it was possible to actually reach fans and have an interaction going!

I’m glad that people enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to bringing my acoustic guitar next Friday! You can watch the Q&A right here:

This is the last day of the pre-order campaign for my upcoming release, so make sure that you get your signed, physical copy!

Yesterday I sent out downloads to my Patrons on Patreon, so if you want to receive songs before anyone else, then this is the best place to go!

The only “top-tier”exclusive that I have left to make, besides a birthday greeting, is to make an in-depth vocal lesson. I imagine that I will make that either at the end of this month or early next month!

Today we sent out lots of CDs to 14 different countries! I made a pretty cool list last night  over the various territories, from the most popular to the least! It’s quite cool! Now I’m done marking all the CDs as sent on PayPal, so whoever has ordered will have received a notification!

It’s 1 year and 8 months since last time I/we had a rendezvous with the Post Office, so it was good to finally send something physical out! I’m very appreciative of all of those people who’ve bought my digital releases while I’ve been sick and to those who have signed up to my Patreon!

I’m happy to be back in business!

 

YouTube PREMIERE in 3 hours!

This is a friendly reminder to my readership that I’m releasing a new music video this evening. I’m trying out a new feature on my YouTube channel that enables me to create a Premiere and interact with people as they watch my content.

Today we are releasing “Ruins of Grandeur” the 4th music video from my upcoming 3rd album “Berit-Vol.1” the 1st album in a series of 4.

You can join me by clicking on this link: RUINS OF GRANDEUR

This is how it looks like when Facebook screws you over…

facebook boycot

The amount of people who pre-order my album once they hear about it is really good, the challenge is to get the word out there … so please share my links with all of your friends and/or followers!

When I thought that things couldn’t get any worse on Facebook, the thumbnail from my music video just disappeared, which is an even more shitty thing to do….

You pick a photo that you think will entice people to click on your link…I’m not sure whose gonna be interested in clicking on a post like that ↑

It would also be nice if it was possible to reach all of those individuals who’ve liked my page and interacted with my content in the past! Remember, I’ve run two successful crowdfunding campaigns mainly trough Facebook, so I’m not quite sure what to make of the fact that they now not only limit your reach but also want to “blackmail” you in order for you to reach existing fans….

It reminds me of the death of Myspace and other social media sites…..

It’s really annoying, since I obviously want as many people as possible to know about my upcoming album release!

I’ve now experienced mysterious issues with Facebook, Twitter & YouTube  in addition to an avalanche of strange accounts contacting me on Instagram.

So please help me bypass this idiocy by telling your friends about my work!

Lame, Lame, Lame, Shit.

So now my video got demonetized, like what the hell? A  song I wrote for the victims of all of this extreme weather? I say that we should leave our political differences behind and come together to help the victims? I say that it is nice to see all of these people who are different coming together helping each other and that this is the best of America? Hello? Ridiculous. Beyond annoying too. I’ve never experienced anything like this. Defamation that is exactly what it is. Pricks.

HERESY!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don’t need religious fanatics in order to hear the shouts of “heresy! heresy! heresy!” I predicted in 2007 that Social Media would be used to sniff out and silence dissenters. I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/16/london-mayor-to-set-up-police-online-hate-crime-hub-in-partnership-with-social-media-firms/

Yeeha! Behold the new STASI recruiting tool! Are google stalking my blog for great ideas? Hmm…get rewarded for being a snitch folks! Come on! You know you want to unlock the super tools of YouTube! Why am I always so right in predicting the worse when it comes to human behaviour. I do wonder.

“Censorship in the form of financial castration.” Just quoting one of the comments on this very worrying article about YouTube’s demonetization. Read this and cry. http://theconcordian.com/2016/09/youtubes-monetization-policy-is-anti-free-speech/

Oh….I seem to remember that I posted this not that long ago… The New STASI app, sorry FB.

If you are to be crucified for posting silliness on your own personal FB, isn’t that the same as being persecuted for writing BS on your own front door or setting up a sign in your garden, that can be potentially offensive to people who walk by your property? Is it right to get into trouble for writing potentially offensive thoughts in a diary, or to reveal controversial view points in private letters? Why would it be ok to receive criminal charges for saying whatever you feel like saying on a private account on a social media site? http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/09/17/german-govt-hires-ex-stasi-agent-patrol-facebook-xenophobic-comments/

Fabulously written by a Norwegian artist friend of mine. It is about political correctness in Norway and Norwegians losing their jobs when they challenge the current orthodoxy. http://hankvonhell.blogg.no/1474927811_trenger_vi_kafkaprose.html

Which made me think of what I wrote lately: Animal Farm.

Think about this: People have voluntarily provided sensitive, personal information to the worlds largest “people-register” of all times. A people register that is global. That has all your personal conversations, everything that you have ever “liked”, any photo of you and your relatives and friends. And the best of all is that…. nobody had to force you to give up all of that information. Splendid.
