A fun thing to do now might be to compare the code you copied that didn't work with the code below.  It might give us a clue as to what is going on.

True, but it is a strong indication that the problem is not in the embed code or the RP post editor.  The next most likely culprits would be configuration issues in your computer or browser neither of which I'm able to look at so I'm afraid I can't be much more help to you.  My advice would be to start looking there.

I'm thinking of creating another album. I need to raise the money and all I can think of is a 
crowd sourcing effort. My first album, Time Water, was a dismal failure. Worse than I could
have ever imagined and I'm the ultimate pessimist. So I don't know if shiopping that around
as a sample of what could be Is a good idea. I know what's wrong with the last album and
the new album might actually shine. So I'm just asking around, looking for ideas. I would like to
partner with someone. I would like to find a pro bono bro. A manager/promoter. 50/50 split.

So most people here probably have no idea who I am. I was a regular for about 7 years until
both my computers died. It's really hard to use this site on my iPad so I've been absent
but always keep my friends here close to my heart. My 10 year paradisaversary is around the corner.

I'm open to any and all suggestions so please feel free to throw anything at me... tractor seats,
false teeth, bum pants, hobo tapioca...  or real thoughts and ideas.

Also, I'm thinking of changing the name From MBE to something less lamo. Should I do this?
it would mean an ice cold start for the new project. Not that anyone knows me but I've invested
a crapload of time building a tiny social media presence. I just don't know. 

this post will probably die quietly as it sinks below the topics waterline but I'm trying everything
i can think of because music is in my heart and mind, the essence of me. If you want to hear
samples of my music just google Manbird Experiment. I'm not hard to find. Some of the tunes
have bad videos I made but don't let that put you off. if you want to talk directly with me you
can get hold of me on FB or Twitter. 

Well... alright, cheers then,

Rob Diebold (Manbird Experiment)

 
 I'm a firm believer of : "If it feels good, do it!"  My son is a budding musician and self-taught guitarist. He uses alot of You tube capabilities for production value.  Seems to be the way to go for young musicians that just want to get themselves out there and have something they can pass along.  One I particularly admire is....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFiyZB5ucgo
She is an amazing musician and has somehow utilized You Tube to its full potential with her own productions.  BTW I remember you and always admired your sense of humor and dedication to the crafts you choose to participate in. Good Luck to you! {#Dance}

Well, the first album was a mixture of styles: I was in the process of leaving orchestral compososition using a program called harmony. I wrote each instrument note by note the traditional way and rendered the sound with the voices which came with the software. And the other half of the album was my first forays into electronica. But I couldn't let go of the classical, so some of the tunes were classical leaning, some were electronica, and a couple were pop or a mixture of electronica and pop. This next effort would be pure electronica. I'll never let go of my original influencers but it will
be more consistent. I aleays thought my first effort was music for musicians and had very little appeal to the average consumer. The music is full
of musical Easter eggs. I won't spend quite as much time building those kinds of tinker toys into the music. I'll spend more time on the production and engineering of the sound to vastly improve the quality. Ill be much more patient. I'll use better and more universal software so I can collaborate with other musicians.
I will make my own samples a la Waits and SPARKLEHORSE. I will play more of the instruments myself and use fewer loops. It will stay strange but be infinitely more listenable.  

 
I always enjoy/hate thinking about this topic. On one hand, am I making music for money? Then one path is to fully express my muse and hope to reach kindred spirits and get their bucks to keep me going. (Todd Rundgren) But money isn't sure to follow.

Or, if I want to be crassly commercial, it has to appeal to the lowest common denominator that will spend money on it. (Beyonce) But recognize that people don't buy music now; they steal it or stream it.

So, if you're guaranteed to not make money off it, then you're doing it for grins. Whose?
Are you going to labor to create something so you can watch other people say "that's good"? Why would you do that, except for the ego trip. And that'll be in frequent since not many people are going to hear it anyway. There are too many competitors now, and anyone with one finger and a program can make an entire EDM record in real time.

What stops me is the thought "what do I have to say that's worth taking 3 minutes of someone else's life if it doesn't make it better?" And I don't have an answer to that, so I have to factor other people out of my process.

So there's only one option: the final product gives you a big smile. No one else may ever understand it - but if they do that's cool.

Hmmmm.   Missed this.  Life is about reinventing yourself over and over again.  Rebranding is another matter.  Since you have a new direction, maybe its time for the Manbird Theory since the experiment is over.

I'll have to go and refresh my memory regarding your music as its been a while since I last listened to it.  I do remember or think I remember it being kinda moody and dark.  What would be different this time around ?   I'll do some thinking and listening.

Glad to see you back around these parts.
