It looks like Adobe updated their Flash Player today so if you are experiencing audio and video players stopping around the internet, this should resolve the issue.
I just updated and so far no issues.
Here is a link to update - http://get2.adobe.com/flashplayer/
As some of you know, Michael is in the hospital and could use a little bit of support to get him back on track. Some of you may remember when we did the Songs for Rob (Grant) when he was in the hospital a few years back. This is the same thing. Healing through music!
Michael has been a huge part of Mixposure.com and I think this is a great time for us to step in and thank him for being a part of Mixposure and supporting us through the years. I am going to see if I can find the interview Mike K did with him and we can get that posted for everyone to listen to.
So please follow this post on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/groups/524345730945574/?notif_t=group_r2j and post a link to your tune on Mixposure and hopefully some well wishes for Michael. Michael has been sick for a few years and he and I have had some discussions around his illness and the medical profession in general.
This will only take a few seconds of your time and defiitely is being done for the right reason. Come on Mixposure, let's song bomb the facebook thread with some music!
The Saturday Night Rocks Interview with Michael Foster.
First of all, apologies about the Flash players and the start stop thing. I have been looking at the Flash Forum and it looks like they have a fix and they are testing it out. Hopefully it will be released soon.
The testing on the new site is going well and with luck we will be releasing in the next few weeks. I am looking for a new host now and we may change our host first and get that out of the way. Then we can change the site over. Oh the good times!
Anyway thanks for being a part of Mixposure everyone. The site will get a little dusty as we start making changes to it so please bear with us!
Congratulations to Chris Georgiou for being the Mixposure.com Artist of the Month. Chris has been around Mix since the early days and is just an amazing musician.
After a long time band performance it was time to look forward for my inspiration into instrumental music and beyond. Some pieces are more spacey due to my influences of seventies experimental music, base of all certainly is Rock and Blues and classic.
But there should be no borderlines in writing only a free mind, that's how things work.
Life is music, music is life
Hey Everyone! I am hearing that there are some issue with our Flash Players and Internet Explorer. We are looking into the issue but in the mean time, please use Firefox or Chrome.
This issue is kind of odd because we have not mad any changes to the site. As most of you have read, we will be revamping the entire site with pretty much all new code in the next month or so.
Our apologies for the issue but please know that we are working on trying to resolve it.
The odd thing is that it appears to be an issue only on this site. I have checked out our embedded players on multiple sites and they play fine!
UPDATE -- http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1192612 This is a bug in Flash. You can downgrade, use a different browser or wait for the fix which should be out soon.
I just wanted to let everyone know that we will be releasing a new Mixposure version in the not so distant future. The overall look will be pretty much the same so no need to get upset that we are recreating the wheel or making drastic Facebook like changes. I am testing out the new layout now and from what I see you guys are going to love it. It is much easier to use and will be a lot more intuitive.
As an example, we will be back on one server. This was not a huge deal because you could always use the mixposure.com/artist_name vs www2.mixposure.com/artist_name. I was just not a huge fan of the www2 so I am glad that will be gone.
On the artist page, if you want to add a new song, once logged in you will see a plus (+) button. Just click the plus button to add a new song to your page. There will be a "x" to delete it or an "o" to update it.
If you want to change your artist image, while logged in, just click it. You will then get the screen to change it.
You will also be able to "Follow" other members.
These are just a few of the cool features that will be available. I will be posting more info as I get deeper into it but I thought I would share.
Have a great Easter Everyone! May the Easter Bunny drop off some new gear for you as well as some chocolate!
MixStream Radio will be back next week!
Folks, I have good news for you! MixStream Radio was recently given the opportunity to share the music of the Mixposure.com artists whom we serve with a much larger audience. Thanks for this goes to Ked! We are now streaming MixStream Radio on The Zeus Radio Network.
Currently the page is located here - http://www.zeusradio.com/ but we are in the process of changing the icon and the landing page once the Mixposure icon is clicked.
This is not a financial transaction and no money is changing hands. The owner of Zeus Radio Network has not purchased Mixposure! This is just a chance for the artists of Mixposure to reach a much larger listening audience. Zeus has access to millions of listeners. If we can tap into a small fraction of that audience, it is a win for all of us.
As always, as a Mixposure artist you have the option to choose to not have your music played on the station. It's a simple check in a box to have your music excluded from broadcast.
Thanks for being a part of Mixposure! You truly are the best musicians on the planet.
The OCR.BOYS Radio Show on MixStream Radio with your hosts Steve & Bubba Proudly Present the Rock and Country Song Contest!
So what is at stake for this contest? A $75 Cash Prize to the winner of each song genre!
How do I participate? All you do is go to the OCR.Boys Radio Shows and join them in Chat to enter your song. When you upload your song, please use the genre of OCR_Rock_Song or OCR_Country_Song. This will help us track each song better.
Who is judging this contest? Mixposure's own Daddy Rabbit is the Judge! Any bribes, threats of posting pictures of him in a thong will be cause for immediate laughter. I mean disqualification!
When does the contest end? The contest will run through May!
Could this be an easier? Not really!
For some reason our Facebook song player got a little corrupted and was only displaying a link to the page instead of posting the player on Facebook. If you are not sure how to add songs to facebook, you can use the below. Also many of the players have Facebook buttons in them to add them directly to social networking sites.
From your artist page ie. mixposure.com/your_name there is a FB Share button below the player. That will add all songs to FB.
Alternatively, if you just want a single song, go to your artist page, click on the music tab, click the button next to the song for Review and Info to bring you to the song focus page. Then just click the share button for FB.
Well Randy had the Mixposure Song of the Week and he was also voted Artist of the Month! Nice job Randy! Have a listen to some of his music below!
Congrats to Elektronz for having the mixposure Song of the Week! This is a pretty cool tune so have a listen!!
Congrats to Mac Charles for having the Mixposure.com Song of the Week! There were a few songs that were neck and neck but this one took the prize!
Have a listen below!
Well this is going to be a new one by Mixposure Standards lol. WildCherry and I were thinking about this and thought it would be a great fit for Mixposure. Winner of this contest gets a Mixposure T-Shirt or Polo. Limited to sizes we have in stock!
So what is the contest? Well it is pretty hard to read any news source and not see something about Taylor Swift. Yes every time she gets dumped, she is in the studio writing about her experience. There are break up songs about everyone she has dated and it is getting kind of funny. With this in mind, we need everyone to come up with their best Taylor Swift break up song!
Vocals are going to be key in this one with some fun lyrics. Your song can be any genre you like, serious or comical. Due date will be February 14th of course.
Please post any questions you have!!
Apparently not everyone is in on the joke for this contest so I thought maybe I should clarify.
The contest is for a Valentines Day Song. With that in mind, it was a great opportunity to basically have some fun at Taylor Swift's expense. Since she gets dropped more than passes in the NFL and then writes a song about each time, what a great chance to have a laugh about it. Everyone else is laughing about it!
Please upload the songs to your account and use a song genre of "Valentine Day 2013" so we can track them all.
Just wanted to touch base with everyone about the site speeds lately. We have had some ups and downs but hopefully our host has resolved the last issue. The artists pages are on a separate sever and have always run pretty well. Navigating the other areas was kinl of slow at times. There was a fix put in today that should hopefully alleviate that slowness.
I have run a few speed tests and have seen some improvement so hopefully you will too!!
Congratulations to new Mixposure Artist Anne Davis for having the Mixposure Song of the Week! The tune is called awakening and is just superb! Have a listen below.
2012 was an awesome year for Mixposure and I wanted to thank everyone of you for making it happen! We have had a lot of new members sign up and we saw some of our artists hit some major accomplishments. Truthfully one of my favorites of 2012 was Ked's interview of Carl Dixon! Kooders Mix Files has been an amazing segment on Mixstream Radio.
Thanks to everyone on Mix for making 2012 a great year. Let's hope 2013 is even more amazing. Big thanks to the admins. mods and especially the dj's. You guys are true rockstars!
Nothing like getting youe Gibos ES335 Guitar Smashed! I used to take my Les Paul on planes but I would never check it. They forced this guy to check it and he paid the price.
The Kennedy Center Honors - Heart w/Jason Bonham doing Stairway to Heaven.
Heart always did some Zeppelin songs in their sets and Ann is one of the few singers that can actually pull it off well.
I just wanted to say Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope Santa brings you musical instruments and recording equipment!
Thanks you for being a part of Mixposure!
Congrats to Pete Tebar and Joseph Rodriguez for having the Mixposure Song of the Week. The tune Nothing Can Bring Her Down is just a great tune. Excellent vocals and superb music. If you have not had a chance to listen, please take a moment to check it out!
Our apologies for the down time yesterday. There was a server issue that affected the artist pages as well as some other areas. I could not even post a blog message about the issue so I had to resort to the shoutbox!
It looks like everything is up and running again and there appears to be no data loss. Looks like we dodged a bullet there!
Have a great day everyone and again, sorry for the down time!
Thanks to everyone who has submitted Holiday Songs for 2012! You still have plenty of time but this is a great start! You guys rock!!!!
Congratulations to Mixposure Artists Jeff Lustick for being Mixposure Artist of the Month! Jeff joined Mix in 2008 and has achived a rather large fan base. Have a listen to some of his music below!
Congratulations to Steve Hodak for having the Mixposure Song of the Week! This is an amazing tune that I had the pleasure of listening to last night that happened to be chosen by our panel for the Song of the Week. Talk about a great Holiday Tune!!!
