Copyright fees

Today I'm going to speak about a rather annoying thing about the country I live in, the copyright fees. So, there is this copyright authority called OSA that is supposed to protect the artists that have some sort of an agreement with the organisation, which would be really great... well, if it wasn't managed in such a stupid, or dare I say, childish way, that it only makes everyone's life harder. Except theirs and the big companies', of course...
These thieves make people absurdly pay for something, they might not have done. We all here have to pay more for a fucking piece of paper because of them. They add to the prices of CDs, DVDs, disk drives etc. just because we might download pirated music, films and whatnot and store this content on them. They even want to add to the prices of cloud services like Google Drive, Mega etc.
But what if I want to burn some photos of my family onto a DVD? Well, fuck me because I have to pay. Well then arrest me for raping my neighbour. I didn't do it but I have a penis, which I might use to do it. I even doubt that the actual artists will ever see any of the money.
Having this said, I just want to  promise myself, that I will never work with those thieves and if they ever try to offer me their 'services', I'll tell them something they definitely won't like. Let's fight them!

who the hell even reads this blog?

Čau! That's uh... 'Hi' in Czech... eh... Cool huh?
This one's gonna be short. I've been looking at my blogger Overview lately and... I noticed something weird. I get quite a big amount of views for a blog of a little guy from a little town with a little number of fans or whatever and I'd like to investigate...
Who actually views this webpage? I mean... I get more hits here than on my YouTube channel (by the way, check it out, there are much more interesting things there than here...) and I'd like to know, who makes these. So please, if you like something about this blog or my content, let me know in the comments here, it would make me feel good (as always).
Cya.

the hard life of non-DJ producers

So it's been a while since I've written something normal to this blog... Wait... Have I ever written anything normal here?
Anyway, I just want to cry like a baby about the stupid (but the only actually working) way of making oneselve's music somewhat known right now. Apparently the only way to achieve that is playing live, any possible way ('cause people don't seem to care if a set is pre-recorded or live-mixed or totally crappy).
I'm thinking about doing stuff live... and no, I don't want to learn to DJ. I never actually wanted to. Being a deadmau5's fangirl (heh), I was playing around with the idea of doing my live shows somewhat similarly, with a significantly lower budget, of course. It is no secret that Joel's live sets are premixed to a certain point, he also said that on his tumblr (we all hit play).
I've already got some kind of equipment for this, counting my laptop, a ZeRO and a soundcard, so I could start preparing a set straight away. The problem is, I need a motivation. and some time... Actually a shitload of time which I could spend motivating myself, having a rest, listening to music, working on my own music... and also the actual set preparations. And I also need some support because if I do it on my own... that would be just pointless.
Ok, enough crying. I've still got shit to do.

drop the poptart (deadmau5 demo) lyrics

So, I didn't have anything to post here, so let me just *fangirl* here a bit and write these lyrics for the WIP demo by deadmau5. (I am, in no way, connected to deadmau5 or Coleen D'Agostino)
(vocals: Coleen D'Agostino)

Breathe it in now
then breathe it out,
let the air flow over me.
Up high can you tell me what you see?
This life isn't more than just a dream.

Look at me now,
then look away.
Can you tell me what to do?
Your eyes, they no longer speak for you.
Insight, tell me where you hide the truth.
Insight, tell me where you hide the truth.

If you want me to stay,
I need you to know:
You can never ever leave me alone.

If you want me to stay,
I need you to know:
I can never let you go.
I can never let you go!

[instrumental part]

Breathe it in now
then breathe it out,
let the air flow over me.
Up high can you tell me what you see?
This life isn't more than just a dream.

Look at me now,
then look away.
Can you tell me what to do?
Your eyes, they no longer speak for you.
Insight, tell me where you hide the truth!

If you want me to stay,
I need you to know:
You can never ever leave me alone!

If you want me to stay,
I need you to know:
I can never let you go!
I can never let you go!

Guide to #hashtags

I've seen too many people not understanding what hashtags on Twitter are for and not using them properly/reasonably. I always get upset about the tweets full of unnecessary hashtags with usually every f'n word tagged.
So I give you this Guide to #hashtags.
Note: There are real tweets used as examples for correct use of hashtags.

What hashtags are

Hashtags are some keywords (marked with a #) that say something like "This tweet is about #someRandomTopic." There are like two types of using hashtags.
The first one is tagging the tweet at its end. e.g.:
When you click the #firsttweet hashtag, the link should lead you to the page where there are tweets about the same or a similar topic.
The second type is tagging a word inside the tweet, as long as the word signifies the topic of the tweet.
Again, clicking the #monstercat or #nowplaying hashtags leads you to the page with similar tweets.

What hashtags are not

Hashtags are definitely not a thing to make the post look cool or anything like that. The thing to note is, that when you search on Twitter for a keyword without the hash (#) the results-page will show non-hashtagged results. That means that you don't need to hashtag every f'n word in the tweet so the people can find it.

What to hashtag

As I said, hashtags are there to mark tweets with some topic. So when you tweet about e.g. cooking, it is good to use the #cooking tag.

Useful hashtags: #hatemonday, #uefa, #computer, #bass, #flstudio ...

What NOT to hashtag

You shouldn't tag generic words like my, your, in etc. The words don't mark any specific topic and nobody will search for these either. Also when you hashtag every word in the tweet, it gets firstly confusing and secondly annoying.
If you still don't understand hashtagging, just DON'T hashtag! It's not necessary, Twitter's not about hashtags. It's about your daily life, about your hobbies and other stuff.

First!!

Hi! So this is my first blog entry, I guess (no shit, captain!). I'm not yet sure, what I'm going to post here. I feel like posting some longer thoughts that just don't seem to fit on Twitter and Facebook (which are actually connected and 140 chars just don't look like enough).
Maybe, if I feel like that, I'll write some FL tutorials and post them here but I'm not yet sure about this so if you read this, don't beg for them in the future, please.

Well, whatever I'll be posting, I hope that you like the new webpage "setup" made with Blogger. As you can see, it's still just one of the basic Blogger designs and I don't feel like making my own design yet. I have never really understood, how designs for Blogger work.

Anyway, f' the commerce, enjoy the music, cya!
