ah, geez...i don't even remember 'privacy settings', robert! thanks, though.

truthfully, i have been too busy with cutting down a tree in the fenceline to think about soundcloud...the greenbriar  all around the thing i had to cut out so i could even get in with an axe to chop the sucker was a challenge yesterday.

a productive and excellent New Year to all who post and read here!

robert, i appreciate the info you sent me. i dug around in soundcloud and finally found 'privacy'.  they don't make it easy to block or restrict comments or whatever-lots of sub menus....but i re-posted 56.  the only reason i post music on any of these sites is to share my enjoyment at recording; if some joker is going to try to phish me, i'm not gonna post anything. i don't need a bunch of crap from some bozo in a basement who ought to be put digging ditches so he/she would be too tired to irritate other people online. anyway...thanks again for the advice!

Vladan, i hope if you got something to say, you post it here. i'm not even going to look at messages on soundcloud any longer. best to ya!

thanks, robert.  i still have a soundclick account with songs posted on it. i've never had any kind of strange messages at soundclick.

the 'security features' at soundcloud, man, i couldn't find anything. i dug thru the help menus, looked for a way to report the 'user'-the first phisher was 'banned' for some reason. the second phisher resurrected the exact wording of the first ones attempt. i simply don't feel like dealing with bozos online-i had enough of 'em in real life, so maybe i've just reached my limit with bs.

for that matter, last night it might've been my computer hookup, as i tried to list a guitar on reverb.com, and the listing didn't take.  'country internet' don't always work so good.

i want to tell you guys...i deleted all the tracks from my soundcloud account. if i could find the right button, i'd delete the account 'in total' with any mention of user # or whatever else.

why? i have had two messages in the last month wanting me to enter into a 'music contest'. when i look at the url 'they' sent, it looks weird...and anyway, i don't WANT in any music contest. 'sides, i am not going to put up with any 'online bs'.  as far as i am concerned, if it wasn't for this site and a few of you guys, a couple of friends who i keep in contact with and my cousin, i would pour diesel on this computer and light it. this digital stuff is 'not real life'-it's like 'the emperor's new clothes'. i live in meat world. i'm ok with that. i have an axe and a 5 foot timber saw....and i'm keepin' em. if the digital idiocy gets much worse, my cousin and the rest will have to re-learn to write letters longhand (remember the parker method? hahaha. i doubt you do....)

it used to be, you wanted to steal something, you had to take your little popgun, put on a bandanna, go take a chance on someone loading yer a$$ with buckshot or maybe getting your neck stretched in public. now, punks of every stripe try to swipe 'digital data' and seem to rarely get what they deserve...spread eagled on a wagon wheel and 50 lashes with a bullwhip. if we went back to that, then a lot of this bs would cease.  ol' duterte has got the right idea....i bet the drug peddlers are walking on eggshells in the phillipines.

sorry for any inconvenience...although i doubt it's a big deal to anyone.

i sometimes think to myself 'who wants to be great?'. i don't. what i DO want is to continue to improve....'sides, you wake up, there's a risk to be alive. bohlinger is at least a thinking man:

and so, being a sick s%$t in the head, i am working on this just for the heck of it-i have liked the song and the rhythm for a long, long time-ray charles? nothing i can say that aint been said, so i aint tryin' to sing it, just the guitar part and whistling:

the solo is a stock squier tele deluxe with d'addario pure nickel strings thru a fender rumble 100.  the rumble has what i consider an outstanding direct out for recording.

Paul Thorn. his phrasing and singing is first rate. 'Backslidin' on Friday' is a lot like me, but i don't wait for Friday:

scroll down about halfway-to 'Cruise news by Wendy'. if it were not for so many things i'd have to do/not do/fix/overcome, by golly, i'd save my dollar bills and do one of these. if i were 30 year syounger...blahblahblah:

is. it's good for thinking about on the porcelain throne or on the porch in yer rockin' chair with a drink.

i got interested in it due to one of his theories about 'a system that reaches its own ceiling will either reorganize at a higher level or fail' (this is my restatement of prigogene's theory, so you might have to go read his words to make sense of it).

when i consider 'time', time is what led to accurate navigation, which led to the genetic experiment we are all part of (convenient world travel and intermixing) which then led to space travel.  computers, as you probably know, are hitched tightly to 'time', as well as music.
