in a few weeks i guess it won't matter...


bummer. despite it's flaws, i occasionally found mp3.com usefull and downloaded some decent music from it.

hopefully whatever replaces it will be better...

That's funny... JR, if you're talking about the "battle against pop music's atrocities," I lost a few days ago.

RE: This is funny | from clickNov 13 2003 - 19:26

No, Alex, it's not funny. It just shows you the level of the average fuckwit, that's all.

RE: This is funny | from JR OlssonNov 13 2003 - 15:34

are you winning?

RE: This is funny | from michelNov 10 2003 - 10:14

yep don't let it bother you alex. looking at your age, talent and taste, i'll be buying lots of stuff in the future i'm sure

RE: This is funny | from adamNov 10 2003 - 09:27


Trolls are an inevitable symptom of message boards. Keep on rockin' Alex...

RE: This is funny | from AndrewNov 10 2003 - 00:29

I'm guessing that the people who have a problem with it aren't musicians. If they were, they'd understand.

RE: This is funny | from JR OlssonNov 10 2003 - 00:04

i just can't seem to find anything wrong in promoting your own music. what's the deal? how are you gonna get people to hear you if you never tell anyone?

RE: This is funny | from brianNov 09 2003 - 17:44

fraid not. i've never been one to encourage people. and i've never been afraid to post my real name or email.

RE: This is funny | from brianNov 09 2003 - 17:40

RE: This is funny | from Nov 09 2003 - 17:23

yeah, go Brian!

RE: This is funny | from meNov 09 2003 - 16:32

no shit. 'we want idaho' my ass. you've got idaho. there's a brand new idaho website, www.slidingpast.com. keep your annoying asses occupied there instead of soiling this board with your negativity.

RE: This is funny | from david t.Nov 09 2003 - 14:17

people are so concerned with complaining about everything, they don't even notice all the idaho threads. it's like they ignore them and only post on the threads where they can find something to complain about. i like alex's music. obviously a bunch of other people do too. if you don't want to read about it, then don't. for those of us who are interested in hearing about good music, and not JUST idaho, i encourage people like alex and mplaster and jr to keep updating us.

RE: This is funny | from JeanNov 09 2003 - 12:53

"WE WANT IDAHO." Have you not noticed the large number of threads about Idaho lately? Come on, give all the "there's nothing about Idaho" shit a rest. Make your own posts instead of complaining about other ones.

RE: This is funny | from Alex NiedtNov 09 2003 - 12:49

Sorry, but seriously the last time I posted any self-promo stuff was like a year ago. Fuck off. And thanks to everyone else.

RE: This is funny | from trueNov 09 2003 - 07:09

I second that...start your own board Alex..WE WANT IDAHO

RE: This is funny | from idawhoreNov 09 2003 - 06:28

for fuck's sake, why don't we just call this the "alex niedt message board". Idaho? Who's that? I'm here to read the latest alex niedt self-promotion items!!

RE: This is funny | from JR OlssonNov 09 2003 - 00:55

alex rules. though that is not one of my favourite songs. but all is good.

RE: This is funny | from brianNov 08 2003 - 16:06

alex, i like the song too. i've always liked your songs. those categories are weird. it was a few years ago when mp3.com made all the subcategories my old band wound up in the top 5 in the shoegazer category with all the songs we had at the time for a few months.

RE: This is funny | from AndrewNov 08 2003 - 15:52

Man, that's seriously weird reading the charts. It's like, "Linkin Park, Nelly Furtado, REM, John Mayer, Good Charlotte, Alex Niedt..." Wait, what the fuck? "Christina Aguilera..."

RE: This is funny | from AndrewNov 08 2003 - 15:46

I remember telling you I like that song. You said, "It sounds like fucking shit. I didn't de-ess the vocals, and those vocals are full of retarded lyrics." God, that still cracks me up.

RE: This is funny | from mplasterNov 08 2003 - 13:03

dude, you're nuts. that's a nice song. i love the weird chord progression in the 'chorus.' anyhow, MP3.com is pretty dumb. i dont understand their "ranking" system. and i think it's ridiculously unfair to force independent artists to compete directly with major label Mega-stars... like Brittany and Mayer have trouble getting exposure and they need MP3.com to boost listener awareness or something?!?!?!? yeah right. anyhow. congrats on the flukish anomaly. maybe it's cause it's just a good song! :P

anyhow.. hey, do you have a CD out yet? email me privately... i'd like to consider a trade if yer interested....

self-promo of sorts | from Alex NiedtNov 08 2003 - 11:07

For some strange reason (probably a fluke), one of my absolute worst songs, "The Necklace", has been getting thousands of plays on MP3.com during the last couple of days. So that means I'm in the Pop and Rock charts, right up against the equally-pitiful likes of John Mayer, Christina Aquilera, Linkin Park...you get the idea. I'm starting to slip though, so I'd just like to ask you guys to listen to it, in order to help independent artists like us in the fight against the aforementioned atrocities in today's popular music. Or something like that. Thanks. : )
