One of my Matthew Ebel dot net members canceled their subscription yesterday, forever. My system knew her as Member #269, but I knew her by name. Normally this isn’t worth a blog entry; it happens every month. Some of my loyal superfans hit rough economic bumps and just can’t stay on board. After her subscription

The Re-Humanization of Music

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-

Ask Not What Your Artist Can Do For You?

Ask Not What Your Artist Can Do For You?

I’ve discovered that there are two factors that motivate The Powers That Be (otherwise known as the Us from my Manifesto): Eyeballs and Influence. You, my awesome fans, matter only insomuch as either how many of you are out there or how much you’ll do when I ask you. You’re either a valuable demographic or

The Manifesto of a Voice

The Manifesto of a Voice

I am not a revolutionary. I am only a Voice, just like you. I did not begin as a Voice, I began as a listener. Like many music fans I spent my childhood plugged into radios, tapes, even an old 8-track. I listened to the music that was given to me by those who controlled

Should I offer Ringtones here at Matthew Ebel dot com?

Should I offer Ringtones here at Matthew Ebel dot com?

I was playing with my amazing new Android phone today and the thought occurred to me… Do people still buy ringtones as ringtones, or do they just buy songs or albums and use those as ringtones? I know my friend Geoff Smith over at RingToneFeeder.com has plenty of customers who love their steady stream of

UPDATE: Holycrap, you guys filled this need in under 24 hours? Damn. I’m speechless! Thanks for the support, I’ll be sure to send video/photos of the sound panels when I start putting them together. The dirty little secret of recording studios is that 90% of the work is done by the room. If the room

Interview on “Our Place” Episode 242

For all the work I put into designing and decorating this website, it kinda annoys me that people can get away with zero-frills bare-bones websites. Steve Nutt’s show, Our Place, lives on the barest of bare-bones sites I’ve ever seen… but if you’re a podcaster, who cares? It’s the show that matters, and this guy

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
