The Re-Humanization of Music

Music piracy, as we all know, is the sole reason for the downfall of the Big Label Music Industry™, right? Those damn kids with the BitTorrents and the WiFi’s, P2Peeing all over my lawn like they own the place. They don’t value music at all anymore, so musicians will have to earn their living selling

A Question For YOU

A Question For YOU

What made you a Matthew Ebel fan? (Assuming you are one. If not, grab some free songs and tell me what you think.) It’s not always easy to quantify, but I’d like you to try. It may not even be my music that brought you here. I know what made me a Ben Folds fan-

In Like A Lion, Out Like Dexter Peterson

Holy crap, it’s April? I was just coming to terms with the fact that it was February. As I sit here caffeinating I’m very conscious of the passage of time. The last three months flew by in a whirlwind of technology and meat. The former because I’ve spent a nauseating amount of time redesigning both

So I’m sitting here ironing the wrinkles out of the NEW Matthew Ebel dot net and chatting with Aaron about what happened in Japan.
