~ALL ABOUT ME & FACEBOOK
First of all...thanks to all y'all who have sent "alternate links" when your FREE DOWNLOADS redirect to a facebook page. ~ thank you ~ to:

You too,Mr Bill and BIG shout-out to Busta for his generosity in sharing alt. links! Wow! You guys really make my days a lot sweeter, y'know that? tobyONE isn't too busy to stop and send me an alternate link, even in the midst of TOURING...!! Ain't that special? I think so. Thanks, TobyONE. And thanks also to Hiphoppapotamus and TheAllergies for their kindness in writing back to me with non facebook links to their fantastic tracks that I asked "..pretty-please-can-I-have-THAT-bit-of-awesomeness"... ~ it takes time to write back. Not everyone does. THANKS!!!
The reason I don't participate in Facebook is that I feel, as a citizen of the world, that we here in America have been forced to give over enough of our personal information, with or without our permission.We are already "on file" everywhere you can imagine, and photographed at every opportunity within an inch of our lives. Privacy is no longer a GIVEN.
As anindividual, I would prefer to keep my life to myself, accessible to other individuals at my discretion.
..serio,...Facebook was brought to life by some frat boy with a grudge on his girlfriend, and, although it has had an interesting, short (less than 10 years old!) evolution, it was conceived in the spirit of spite and competitiveness.
Now, Facebook profits from other people willingly exposing a PHENOMENAL amount of personal information...
It's still a free world, and for now, I'm not opposed if YOU love Facebook and want to use it, especially if it does good for your music, your band, or whatever! Go for it! It's your tool, if you see it that way. If you want to associate yourself with this particular advertising tool, it is there for you.
However: I don't choose to use it. And I would like the same opportunity as those who do, when the free tracks are given out.
(look! there it is! the actual bottom line! *haha)
wait...oh, I guess not...
Anyway, that is why I bother you, writing to ask for those "alternate links" - that's usually after I've tried other spots, like your label, or scroll through Emails if I'm on your mail list.
I just wanted to let all y'all know that, because it isn't that I'm too lazy to get Facebook, or that I've never had it....to put my requests in perspective.
Thanks for listening!!
your girly pal,
