Had been considering what to do for a while now, and it was “sudo shutdown now” time.
I’m not sure how much interest there is in the stream, hosting it from my house is a burden, and I’m not too motivated to keep working at it. I’ll let things settle for a bit and see how I feel. I was (somewhat) excited at the start, since it was a great opportunity to play with some technology I didn’t know well. It’s a bit old hat to me now, so there’s not a lot in it for me.
On top of my general ambivalence, ASCAP (another of the crony arms of the RIAA mob) has been sending me angry letters about how I owe them fucking royalties. Serious. A bunch of unreleased / forgotten / crap punk recordings with no redeeming value and they feel like they own it somehow. I’ve asked that they clarify which artists I’ve played who they represent (so I can immediately cease playing them of course) without a response, but this isn’t something I could afford to dump a lot of cash in to.
If you feel strongly about it (i.e. “holy shit man… it’s the only way I can make it through the workday”) let me know. I’m sure I could keep it going without much sweat.
