DMCA Bummers :(

Due to changes in Tumblr’s DMCA policies and a phone call with Tumblr it’s been recommended that I remove all Tumblr hosted audio posts [which is a lot] over the next couple days. Mainly, this is out of fear of my account being terminated due to copyright infractions. It’s unfortunate, but it’s part of the law and if I want to be a member of this community I have to abide by it’s rules.

The frozen days and days of the year when the winter feels insufferable. Endless. You hear a song like this from Oslo’s Kari Jahnsen. Perfection.
