Let's talk about Facebook.
First off, FUCK FACEBOOK!!!!!!!!!!
My account has been deactivated for using a fake name. As a lot of you know, my name has been "Matt Gameboy Owen" on Facebook since the day that I created my account in 2005... Ten years ago... But, that didn't seem to matter until recently... They asked me to upload a government issued ID and to change my name... Easy enough, right? I mean, besides the fact that this is a complete fucking forceful invasion of privacy... It's simple... So, I did it.
The worst part? This has severed my connection to websites that I chose "Log In With Facebook" - Which means my tour schedule, my websites (Electrobrass and ET), my blogs, etc. are all disabled. The entire existence of Eclectic Tuba is at an absolute halt.
As you can imagine, this makes me the angriest man on the face of the planet.
Not to mention that I've lost access to every photograph and video that I've ever posted.
Our June bookings have stopped because we've lost communication with our venue and city contacts.
I'm off the internet for an indefinite amount of time. Until then, #whereismattowen
