I’m too mentally exhausted to write anything of any merit, have been too busy (and spent a week out of town) to blog. But I will post this charming email I got from a reader who is pretty psyched on Farced, thus really making my month (especially with the follow up email.) Also, this means I won’t be pulling the plug on Farced, as I have been toying with. Toot toot:

s y b i l ,

I was making a futile attempt to pretend the following wasn’t true “Back when myspace was still relevant in the world of social networking” (but you’re painfully correct), emailing them about Death in June when I stumbled on your amazing blog. I was just looking for links to their music to play for a new friend on MySpace, because I thought they might like them, when a link “To Drown a Rose” led me to your blog.

I have a little ADD when it comes to the internet, just giving everything a skim, while never digesting anything. Instead, just wasting more time than I intended to. With your blog, it started out innocently enough by pressing play on the first song that I saw “Föhn In Den Bergen” by Die Partei. I was immediately sucked in by their post-punk, Kraftwerkian sound and I scoured the internet, trying to research them and realized I wasn’t getting anywhere. That’s when I realized your blog talked about the songs you included and I was immediately hooked. Post after post! Amazed that I had been so clueless about a great many things when I’ve always prided myself on being a music geek. For instance, you kept using the term NDW (which I later found out from Wikipedia meant “Neue Deutsche Welle”). Also, I never made the Christiane F. connection with Einsturzende Neubauten, even though it was staring me in the face for the past decade. It was exciting to download those tracks. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything you’ve written and the music that you’ve posted.

I write you just to solidify that I’m a fan and I will be keeping an eye on your blog. I feel such a renewed “Lust for Life,” which is often coupled with my passion for music. It’s a very exciting to find someone who puts the Muse back in Music for me.

Thank You,

Yeah, I can’t believe I just posted that but it really halted my plans to stop updating Farced and let it dissipate. In the follow up email I was asked where I got the name Farced from, I am including the Rudimentary Peni track that inspired the name. I posted some more Rudimentary Peni here in January. There is also more reasoning behind the name but it’s 5am and I really need to sleep. Contrary to popular assumption, I am NOT a 40 year old man but a spry young woman. Thank you Adam for two wondrous emails that let me know this hobby of a blog is appreciated. Once I revamp the blog layout, (banner like everyone else in the blogosphere hooray!), I’ll include an about me page. This egomaniacal post is decried by the Chameleons “your ego is your closest friend, never lets you down” lyric ringing in my head.

Working on scanning some of the 843494 rolls of film from what I like to call the dark year (2008) soon, will have to make a mass update, along with some more music. Probably sometime after compiling these scans into submissions for my future. I make no sense. Good night.

Shirt says “Global Warming is a BUMMER,” took it two summers ago, posting it today because this FICKLE ass weather could not be any more apropos.

    Awe… :blush:. I’m glad you’re back. I kept checking back, hoping for a new post and then got super busy. Having a lazy Sunday and decided to check Farced and here’s THREE POSTS! :so excited: I can’t believe you actually published my letter. I’m flattered beyond belief. I was scared that my 2nd letter scared you off, because I never heard back from you. I’m relieved that was received well, as well.

    If you get this busy without a job, then I’m going to hate it when you’re gainfully employed. )c:

    I’ve been wanting to get into Rudimentary Peni for only a decade, so thank you for finally being the catalyst to send me over the edge. I was having a Birthday Party day and Rudimentary Peni slipped in there perfectly, coming out just a year before the live Birthday Party album I’m listening to. The track info for RP didn’t have the year and I’m all anal about that kind of thing, but thankfully figured it out quick that it came out 1981.

    Yeah, I am pretty anal about that stuff too but this was from the “EPs of RP” compilation. I have waaaay too many doubles of things because I have the singles, eps, & albums of some artists.

  3. adamnauseam Says:

    I just changed the album to be the Farce EP and called it a day. (c:

  4. Sybil Says:

    haha you sound like me. I do this with compilations all the time. :)

  5. adamnauseam Says:

    What a compliment! I always want it to be the original, so I can begin to give the song some type of context (hence the date, too). I want to know everything that’s going on the second it’s released, so I know where it came from and where it’s going.
