I’ve been away for a while, working on an interesting contract in which I really can’t talk about lol. It’s been… Interesting. In any case, I’ve pretty much returned to my usual activities, which leads me to a terrible interaction with bandcamp.com.
If you aren’t sure what Bandcamp is, check out the wiki here. A while back now I went there and found The Corrs new album; White Light. I like to support artists on Bandcamp as they get more from the purchase than many other places like Apple and so forth. Or so I thought.
In this case The Corrs profile on Bandcamp.com turned out to be a totally false entry! I only found this out as when I went back to revisit the page on Bandcamp, thecorrs.bandcamp.com/ – It was missing. I sent through a help request to understand why this was, as you wouldn’t expect an Artist’s page to suddenly disappear without some element of malice. What I learned next was very poor.
It was a fake profile, scam, and they had removed it. Then, upon me checking they took the liberty to credit me back the amount of money that I payed for White Light. How many wrongs here? They let someone scam them by posing as The Corrs, they only contacted me when I contacted them post the action they took to resolve the issue, and since these are digital downloads I ended up with White Light for free basically.
Not cool Bandcamp, not cool. Well, I will go and buy White Light again soon though because I love The Corrs and they deserve the support! I may have to pay the devil(itunes store)in the meantime though, but I’ll look up their official store too.
Here is the google cache for the removed site!
Good Night Internets
I have a lot of trouble sleeping, can’t shut the brain down. Three years ago jet lagged visiting home, I discovered by accident that the very beautiful and talented Andrea Corr could sing me to sleep quite well. Since then nine out of ten nights I’ll pop in the headphones and dream of her singing me to sleep with an infatuation I’ve probably not felt since high school. I wonder if that connection could be established with someone in real life? Anyone out there have their partner sing to them for sleep?
Speaking of which, it is time for my nightly date with the Irish love of my life. Good night!
