ARTISTS

Here are some artists I feel deserve more love and platform.

FUN

 : images, galleries, videos, BTS, links, audio, products, gifs, free downloads, documents, words, tables, lists, file uploads.

 

 

....No other social media site allows flexibility in publicity!

CREATIVITY

A celebration of art.

ADVENTURE

A place to help promote cool people who've entertained me. 

. Current social media sites are lowest common denominator.

What do I mean by that ?

For example : youtube don't allow you to change your video file ...that's whack......so if i've spelt someone's name wrong on the credits I can't reupload a video with a corrected credit..

.........whereas on here i have ultimate control over the delivery of the video file.

Twitter doesn't allow you to edit tweets if you've made a spelling mistake etc etc...

Other reasons to change  is ever the changing goalposts,algorithms,  artificially limiting reach, pay-to-play, censorship seeded content, and sponsored misery.

This stuff we've seen change since the early days of social media.

I remember when on Myspace you could post a bulletin 
 and everyone would see it, regardless. It made for a more interesting time. Top 8? HTML? Tom?

TALENT

 

Delivering mixed-media content for a new audience

ORIGINAL ART

 

WHY DID I MAKE THIS SITE ?

I wanted away from the advert-led social media sites

to work on something more original and fulfulling

Lots of us grew up using the world-wide-web around 2000...

Back then we enjoyed blossoming website design, flash-html, autoplaying music, fun unpredictable content, creative page interactivity, soundboards, chronological forums, and hyperlinks!

 

....I kind of feel that's what i've gone for here.

web 1.0 again

 

a homage to websites of days gone:

Myspace, Shockwave.com, Ebaumsworld, Miniclip

[Tbh, i was unimpressed with the throwaway nature of social media - i wanted a new home for all the awesome art created around me]

FUTURE OF THE SITE

So much more homegrown independent content lined up!!

Lots of ideas to develop too  :

 

photography, livestream, interviews, art reviews, live forum, blogging, free downloads, and potentially PILOT 2 in a few months!!

 

Aimng to collaborate with more directors and  designers.
 

NO SPONSORED POSTS!

(so don't bother asking!)
