Phew, website back to full working order after installing new SSL certificate.  Essential for all the backend stuff I have running.

boywithwings.co.uk will be down for a few hours for site maintenance.

No More Lists and More Mirrors

I’ve removed the necessity to provide your email when you download the Boy With Wings album. This has two benefits really. Firstly, it allows for people to anonymously download the album (especially if they don’t want to or can’t afford to pay anything).

Secondly, it means I don’t have to manually download the bloody list of emails and add them to the mailing list on mail chimp. If you want to sign up to the mailing list you now can only do so by visiting the main website.

I’m still super happy with both Bandcamp and MailChimp as platforms for the Boy With Wings project. As it looks like we’re going to try and release a mixtape every month if possible, I decided to try and self host the download via my ownCloud on the Boy With Wings server. It seems to be working for now but I also included a Dropbox hosted file, just in case.

I also got a torrent of it up and running which might be a little bit of overkill as the mixtape .zip is only 70MB and I’m not really able to seed 24/7 at this stage.

I posted it before, but I’ll keep on posting it until the patriarchy is dismantled.

If I was a bird
I would fly high over the world
Come home at night to your garden
Build a nest among the branches
And I’ll comb your hair with my beak

If I was a bird
I would count my time in pearls
Under my wings you’ll find shelter
You’ll breed bugs and keep me well fed
And I proclaim the reason why I’ll have to fly

But you wanted me to be a girl
Without feathers without urge
Then my wings quick disappeared
And left was only fear
And I proclaim the reason why I’ll have to fly

Proclaim the reason why I’ll have to fly
I’ll have to fly
