Profile

20 years here. The quality went down when every idiot got the chance to enter his "releases". It's all about quantity (and boulevard crap) not quality (like "reviews"). The old members were f'ed, the new got boni. Like European politics... Greets to all oldschoolers, WE built this page, especially Europeans (Germans, Dutch, Italians, Russians, English, Maltese etc. etc.). Many things ain't fine anymore, but it's still a nice and important site. Forget Fakebook, Shitstagram, Zwitter and all those typical westworld superficial crap things.

I could have been submitted more than 100; many of them during the "old" Discogs time without Wikipedia-like features and so on, but I was a little bit lazy ;-) Especially as I tend to list (all) credits, errors, notes etc. immediately (which takes hours sometimes but ain't a must). I also didn't submit tons of old Schlager vinyls (not my collection) as it was never relevant to me, lol. My first submissions were in November 2003 (when it was about quality, not quantity...)

I just rate the music, not the design and so on and I ain't a moralist. Most (EDM) music from 1998+ is pretty crap (and I partially try to be up to date regarding some artists/styles), that lowers my rating (lotsa releases deserve 0/5 stars), haha. The best rating method would be from 0, 0,5, 1, 1,5... to 6 stars.

#### ZUM NACHDENKEN ####
"Wenn die Menschheit lernen würde, ihre Kinder bewusster aufzuziehen, mit Liebe und Respekt, dann hätten wir langfristig keine Probleme mehr mit Leuten wie George Bush, Mahmud Achmadinedschad oder Kim Jong Il, die wahrscheinlich nur ihre Verbitterung und Raffgier ausleben, die aus einer falschen Kindheit und von Eltern mit falschen Motiven stammen." (Chris Liebing, Raveline 11/2006)

"Die Massenmentalität der westlichen Kultur, geprägt von der rigorosen Gehirnwäsche durch Schule und Medien, dreht sich um die Aufrechterhaltung der Vergangenheit. Dieses Vorgehen dient dem Versuch, sich die Zukunft zu sichern, wobei wiederum die Gegenwart als etwas erlitten wird, das außerhalb der eigenen Kontrolle liegt. Die Gegenwart soll deshalb >sicher< in den Händen der Regierung liegen, die diese Gegenwart als Produkt des technologischen, materiellen und industriellen Forschritts an die Massen verfüttert."
(Dick Lucas, Threat By Example, herausgegeben von Martin Sprouse, Pressure Drop Press, San Francisco, 1989, 13)
