True Chip Till Dead

via Chiptography

When I started the website a few years ago, I was bored at work and missing VORC terribly.  The idea to starting this blog (using a : | Krew joke as the name) seemed like a fun way to stay involved with the scene even if I didn’t have time to do things like Pulsewave and such, and that it would buy me a few more months of interest in the scene. Here we are five years later and and I am now feeling the urge to make some changes for myself which means I won’t be working on TCTD any longer.

This is the first thing I stuck with and worked on every day for as long as I have, and thanks to all the people who helped with content, or retweets, or comments or ups, its been really fun. The time has come, however, for me to move on and take the energy I’ve put into this site and put it towards myself. I think the scene is doing better than ever, internally and creatively and there are a number of options people can use to get their news now. I won’t be accepting new news items, but I plan to keep the site up for now as a catalog of all the information I felt was interesting these last few years.

Special thanks goes to Brady, David, Akira, keff, and my wife for listening to me bitch, working on content, and fixing my numerous mistakes.

Thanks also has to go out to all the artists who’s work is cataloged here, as well as all the readers who’ve interacted with the site.

If you are interested in following my efforts in making music and writing junk take a look at my personal website and twitter.

Thanks for paying attention, good times are coming.

TCTD joins #SopaBlackout this Wednesday

TCTD is officially joining the SOPA Blackout. Joking aside, sites like this that link to free content are in dire danger from this law.

More Information:

On the Tuesday 24th January 2012, the US Senate will vote on the internet censorship bill.

Whilst it is an American law, it has far reaching repurcusions for the web as a whole.

There are many companies against SOPA, such as Google, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia and you should be too.
