They Were Everywhere: The 2012 Crap Chute Collection

Once again, the year comes to a close, and I bundle up all the crap music I’ve put out over the past year and put it out as a single collection for my ego for you.

I went the whole year this time around without an actual title for the collection, which was a pain in the ass when I was assembling tracks together through the year. For this reason I’ve got a title for 2013, assuming I actually make anything in 2013.

So without further ado, it is Crap Chute’s Lagrange Point.

Once again, the best part is the cover art by talented artist Ro Karen. This year’s download contains Bonus Art.

This year I have outsourced the entire download operation to Bandcamp. Rather than have to depend on some skanky download from ( shut down), google drive (makes it hard to download an archive), or dropbox (downloads disappear for no reason), this time around I ponied up the money for bandcamp – all for you.

This means I have to remove the entire paragraph from the description of this event: the one where I tell the ogg netbsd-toaster people to piss off. Bandcamp lets you have the download in any stupid format you could possibly want. All this years tracks are “mastered” (snicker) from a lossless source (as opposed to MP3 like previous years), so you can get the maximum sound fidelity or some other equally useless statement about audio quality. Get your own green marker.

Since I don’t control the download this time, I can’t give you the MD5 this year. So I’ll give you this MD5 instead 1ec739c9559e84cf08d9da78e393d0fc. Bonus, here’s an SHA1: f43b4c1714568dbc01079b2a36d061e8ccf12b1a. You never did figure out what those were supposed to do.

This year the collection clocks in at about 5.5 hours, which is more than last year, but still not as much as 2010. Enough to get you through a short day at work taking numerous breaks or a nice stay in the waiting room at the hospital. The download includes zomg five bonus tracks including two which haven’t been released otherwise.

Like all my previous years’ stuff, the music is under Creative Commons Licence. Yes yes, you don’t care. You’re so l33t because you found it on the internet. Creative Commons isn’t public domain, but it’s as good as you’re going to get – especially since you’re getting it for free. Everyone stand back, here comes that CC logo that seems to offend so many: avert your eyes.

Yes, you can download Lagrange Point for free. Yes, you can enter 0.00 in the box and download it for free. Yes if you download it you can put it on your iPhone or your hipster brown zune. No, if you put it on your iPhone or hipster brown zune you still don’t have to pay anything. No, you don’t have to give your email address or your credit card number or your praypal account. No, I’m not using this to haxx0r your facebook account (paraphrased complaint). I know you’re flat broke, so rather than have me delete your livejournal you should give your money to Ro Karen, or your local animal shelter, or some other hipster doofus. There are better ways to spend your money.

My standing offer still holds: if you can figure out the arduous task of emailing me your address, I will haxx0r your friendface account send you a disc with the music on it for no charge, while supplies last. Number of discs I sent out in 2011: one (1).
