I've known what "herps" are since I was a wee nerd, scarcely into double-digit birthdays, but I never encountered the word "herptile" until tonight. Apparently it's been in use in the literature since at least the 1960s.
Funny how that works.

Several months ago, a friend of mine wrote "bazare" in a text message.

I've only just now figured out that he meant "bizarre."

I thought I'd drop a line and see all you fantastic people.
And it wouldn't be a post whoring post without showing off my spawn:

She's one of two. They will balance the Force.

LOL.
The "grabber" is Kitty.
The wee one is Veronica.
This is Liam:

He will find you and he will find a way to disgust you and enchant you at the same time. He's talented.
And thanks.

I always found it appropriate that we sometimes abbreviate our name to 'fester.

Bandcamp and Soundcloud are two of the biggest non-iTunes, non-Amazon platforms for musicians, and their sites are absolutely terrible.
WTF, Bandcamp doesn't even give you a volume slider! HOW CAN YOU NOT HAVE A VOLUME SLIDER WHEN 90% OF WHAT YOU DO IS PLAY MUSIC IN THE BROWSER???
And Soundcloud, Y U NEVR NOT BREAK? Seriously, I'm constantly getting kicked to the old interface because the new one broke. Sometimes that doesn't even work, and half the reasons offered make it sound like it's MY problem (old browser? slow internet? NO! YOUR SERVICE IS SHIT!). Then there's this freaky and unintuitive division of streaming music on the page; you have this big wave-form-looking player that takes up a fifth of the screen, but the controls for that are overridden by the teensy tiny player waaaaaay up at the top and its control panel in the upper right. When you pause the main player and hit Download to grab the track, the player in the upper right starts playing again! And once the track is finished playing in the big player, the little player moves on to YET ANOTHER TRACK and at first you don't know why there's a new song playing, the big player doesn't show anything. It's that damn redundant teensy parasitic player in the upper-right, moving on without any input from the user!
And neither of these sites are all that browsable or make discoverability a feature. Their designs are crap, their search features are crap, it's almost like they're trying to sabotage the artists who rely on these services.
WTF?

I rather like them.

I didn't think Bandcamp ever pretended to be a platform for discoverability, and I'm fine with using multiple platforms together to a particular end.
However, a visit to their main page, something that I'm not sure I've ever done before, informs me that I was wrong! Oh noes. At least a quick test of their search feature (I searched for "gay deer") managed to yield the most relevant albums right away.

I certainly wouldn't use it for discoverability, but the pages that they give artists and albums are quite nice on all screen sizes, and I never found the functionality to be lacking.

I'm not quite as big a fan of Soundcloud (you're right, their interface is rather awkward), but it's never really given me cause to complain.
