What have I been dooooooing?! Here’s what I’ve been doing: I’ve been working on a buttload of music. It’s been easygoing and stressful at the same time somehow. It’s not because of deadlines I’ve imposed on myself or anything like that though. Continue reading “Random Blog Post #12”
Ugh. I didn’t want to have to write this blog post. I didn’t want to need to have to write it. I certainly didn’t think it would happen, but looking at what I’m about to describe in a positive light, it taught me some things about The Business.
So I’ve debated with myself over whether or not I should call any businesses out over this or if I should just leave them anonymous. I figured it wouldn’t be fair because other similar businesses might have done the same thing. I doubt it, but whatever.
Anyway, you may have noticed that robbysuave.com disappeared for exactly a month. And those were the weeks in which I was trying to get Boobs, Butts, and Feets out to the public. During the weeks or even months leading up to an album release, I’ve grown to enjoy posting about what I’m doing once a week or two. Without warning, my web host deactivated my account. This disabled my website, my e-mail, and other stuff. Lame. At this point I don’t even remember exactly how it went, but I remember a week or two before they shut me off, my work computer was blocking me from visiting robbysuave.com, saying it was infected with malware. So I contacted my host, explaining the problem, and they said there weren’t any viruses or anything. Soon after, my site is down without warning. What I’m pretty sure was days later, I got them to sort of explain what happened: that I had infected files…that was irritating for obvious reasons. But I did what I needed to do to remedy that problem in a few hours probably. But did they reactivate my account? No. Continue reading “Bringing Back Boobs, Butts, and Feets, Pt. 9”
Did you notice that this site was down for a while? Yeah, that was unfortunate…I’m not completely sure what the root cause of it was, but my server got infected, and I had to clean what was probably thousands of files. That may sound like a huge undertaking, but it was mostly just deleting a bunch of files I didn’t even need anymore. The biggest problem was finding out why the site was taken down and working with the host to get it taken care of. That took, what, 2 weeks to fix? Geez.
It’s always bad to have your site die unexpectedly, but it happened right as I launched Punk Rebel Renegade. It’s a collection of songs unheard by pretty much anyone that I recorded 4 years ago. Even though it’s old to me, it’s just as new to you as Heat Stroke was to anybody. But since it is technically a 2011 album, I didn’t want to start a huge hype train for it anyway.
I’m going to talk more about Punk Rebel Renegade in a future post, but I just wanted to announce that robbysuave.com is back, and I’ll be working on overhauling the Music page and adding Punk Rebel Renegade to it. I need to figure out how I’m going to organize this site now that there’s some content to actually organize. I think I’ll have lyrics, download purchase links, etc. all on the Music page instead of having a separate Lyrics page. Maybe I’ll add tabs too. Ha.
