Hi.

Some of you may know me, some of you may not, maybe some of you kind of know me in some way, maybe I was a drunken dick to you in a thread and you're like "fuck that guy", and then some of you may know me too well.

I wanted to write a message to this community because in some ways I feel that I owe it to everyone to do so (those left who care anyway), and at the same time I don't owe any of you shit. However, I have been here for ten years and whether I like it or not I look back on the growth and growing pains, the integral progression and output of this place, as a product of my motivation and belief in a project that saw very few returns other than the joy of watching people be musical.

I love music. I always have. I can't imagine my life without it.

I love IDMf. I always have. I can't imagine my life without it.

I promise you that I am trying really hard not to be cheesy, preachy, and bloated here. This comes from the heart. I am fully aware that there are some people I have worked with along this weird, digitally cunted road who will smirk and insert some comment that will destabilize everything I say here. I honestly don't care. The benwaas and others of this hapless world who exited this place after putting all of their own work in like little bitches can talk all the shit they want. Am I bitter? Nah. It hurt my feelings but I forgive easily. Just being real. Ben if you're reading this I love you but eat my taint. I'm not here to demean them, but I am here right now just to let all of you know who care now, cared ever, or will care that I am leaving now.

Since IDMf001, it was impossible for me, stu, nathan, and the other motivated "old school" crew (most of them now defunct or deactivated, including Nathan) to not realize the power of creative commons music -- this opportunity to build artists up and deliver their art in a professional manner, FOR FREE. Because some music should be free.

I listen back on the catalogue, whether I was involved in the inception or not, and I am very goddamned proud.

So what's happened to me? Well lots really. It's just time for me to move on and pass the torch. It's long overdue really. I've tried to stick to it but the reality of it is that I am no longer the man for the job. I feel like I should have passed the honor of running this great community on a long time ago, but a mixture of pride and also my innate inability to give up when I know I should (much like an athlete with a bum ankle that keeps running regardless) have kept me in the game. The truth is there are other people around here that could do more, and I'm ready to pass it on to those people.

For the time being, @lolirl and @Stercogburn (dude I'll never remember how to spell your fucking name) are your admins. I am uncertain whether or not I will retire my admin role mainly for the purpose that I know this place like the underside of my nutsack and it would undermine the transition to banwaa myself. I would rather make sure my baby flourishes and does better than it has under my half-assed "control".

Anyway, this is mostly just a message to those who have been along for the ride in anyway: artists, supporters, moderators, admins, members, veterans, new users who giver literally zero fucks and are wondering why they've read this far... thanks for everything. If you simply just posted an IDMf compilation on your facebook profile or you actually participated in the formation of one, dude we had and still have something really special here. I know the little dicky nuts at wwtmm are going to shit all over this but they can suck a dog dick in their little cave. I'm kidding... they've helped us too. I won't go off on a diatribe about how all that has ever mattered and all that ever will matter is the music, because I'd rather drink more beer and listen to this fucking amazing new Kendrick Lamar album. Seriously, it's good. But you know what I have cued up next? IDMf010 because that album is fucking dope.

Anyway, cheers to you all. I love you. Speak up and get involved, especially if you're new here. Especially if you've never released an album before. People here really know how to help you grow as an artist. Without this place I wouldn't be anywhere or anyone, but IDMf helped make me feel like what I do matters.

Congrats @ the new admins. Will this mean a possible resurrection of the label?

I hope you're still hanging around to add some drunken commentary to threads. It just wouldn't be the same experience if not. I'm surprised nobody replied to this yet, but maybe my time settings are fucked up.

Re: <3

That Fid guy..what a dick, leaving us all high and dry like this in the hands of lolirl and Stercogburn. I always suspected Fid hated the two of you and this "promotion" proves it beyond any doubt..I hope ye both have insurance. Totally FUBAR!


OK..I was joking. For those who are new to this place, Fid is like that rare / expensive bottle of booze most homes have sitting in a press somewhere, the kind that only comes out on special occasions, but when it does come out, you tend to remember those times as some of the best of your life!

What I'm saying is you'll be missed, dude, if you step away completely..so please don't, OK? Pass on the Admin thing if you feel you must, but stick around as a member..this place needs your distinctive style of wit and pisstakery..and would be a lesser place without it, dude.

And to lolirl and Stercogburn:..congrats to the both of you..it's clear why Fid picked you two for the job..and that's not meant to reflect negatively on the rest of the Mod team in any way at all. What with you two running things on here, coupled with the photo Fid posted here, quoting Timbuk 3 seems totally right...The Future's So Bright , I Gotta Wear Shades.

I hope it's not too hard to stick around as an IDMF Artists and long time forum member without being an active admin. I've missed having you around like you were say 3 years ago.

I've been here almost 6 years so I saw the first hand off to Ben. I hope you stick around and contribute to music making ventures or at the very least post what you are working on at the moment! I am a huge fan of your music and it has been a big inspiration to me. Some of your tracks I've listened to so many times in a row I can't even count!

Good a post as I need to read. Thanks back to you.

Hope you hang out, make some Bangers and have some fun. No pressure, just people. Sounds like you've earned it.


And congrats to the fresh meat. Couldn't have happened to better blokes.

Best choice you've made in a while.

My advice: drop the tags for a while and then decide. This place is a lot better without all the bullshit.
