Whether you’re in America and celebrate in patriot ways or are in/from another part of the world but very much enjoy the USA tradition of Independence Day, let it be known that no matter how far the world arrives in change or how different everything may become, REMEMBER; there was a tyme before where it all wasn’t about ANY of the issues, scenarios, nor’ upheavals that plague planet Earth, today. No… There was a moment when it was pure and simple. An hour where all was celebrated in the name of Freedom — No vice, no denial, no purgatory. Have a very happy…..4th of July!
Firstly, please make certain you understand going in that nothing we’re stating here is of bias or political. It’s facts! Secondly, entertaining while teaching is always pure joy and after our quick spiel on current events, we have some video-clips for your viewing pleasure (to just sort of sit back and allow to sink in).
So perhaps some of you watched those and thought, Hmm, what’s the connection?
Here is a real-life clip from the invasion of Shanghai:
These groups on USA and the other countries around the globe’s soil, doing what in our view are Bolshevik/Communists style revolution tactics, let us just tell you; Minneapolis, right now, looks like Shanghai in that old footage. And from what we hear, a ton of other places that were looted etc. fared similar.
It sucks, but, it is what “it” is (and may become days after).
Our advice/warning (which we’re fully aware no person or entity is asking for but, f*ck all that for now), our viewpoint is to lookout for the following:
• Those mobs that aspire to take these protests/riots beyond cities into the suburban and rural areas, be extra careful because the governments across the globe “are” allowing them to take precedence and, “they” are armed in zones where police have either been removed or are in process of being, unfunded.
* You won’t be protected by anything but yourself in most cases.
• Those founders and co-founders of a lot of these so-called activism-groups for change etc., if you dig back a little bit, they say in interviews which doctrines they abide and aspire to implement.
* Video-Evidence below:
We’ve been dealing with some intrusive communiques and propaganda aimed directly at us over the last couple of weeks but we’ve been keeping all of that nonsense off-site. We don’t wish to burden any of you with any of this junk but we are moving forward with at least one mass statement regarding all of it.
[Primary link is from FOX40 New York — Active links may change suddenly]…
We didn’t want to write this blog-post but after thinking about things for a few days, it’s probably better that you, our audience, readers, listeners, (whoever you are out there), it’s probably better that you know exactly where we stand/stood on the off-chance that all these things happening kick into to high-gear and much becomes lost in the fog.
“We” don’t have a dog in these fights.
The interests for “us” are merely financial in the respect that a ton of the entities trying to sway us to become vested in their ideals and morals are sources that pay us to do what we do best.
But “they” want blood for some reason.
We thank-you from the very bottoms of our hearts, underwear, and socks!!
PS: One video-clip we wanted to include was the invasion scene from Empire of the Sun (1987) [Steven Spielberg] but alas, we just couldn’t find the damned thing!
Bonus: Our very own KATLINA KLIEWER has made an awesome funny meme comparing the world depicted in Demolition Man (1993) [Sylvester Stallone/Wesley Snipes] to the current year, 2020, and statements made by none other than the insidious | 😛 | Dr. Fauci — What say you…?
While we get all our nice, juicy, tender, plump, magnificently marinated, spicy “Instrumentals” ready for all of you, we wanted to take this moment to inform ALL OF “YOU” that we have officially banned M A S K of any shape or sort -at- Takeo Tama — All visitors are encouraged to stay at websites that are M A S K friendly until they feel safe enough to visit us here @ TakeoTama.com — We would apologize for any inconvenience but, well, … why?! – On the other hand, you are still most welcome to wear your underwear, socks, or perhaps, your robe with nothing under…?
Let FREEDOM boil!!
Let oppression sink…
PS: If you come to the conclusion that saying, “Don’t wear a mask!” is oppressive then guess what? You’re smart! One word; “Satire,” much??
Specifically, within the contexts of the pandemic etc., we have “every” reason to reconsider serving out localized content/links and similar but, we as well have no full control over global-internet initiatives and only vow to make considerations for our visitors/patrons vs. oblivious minded policies that wouldn’t allow our material to be as free to audiences. The main takeaway is “resources” but, we’ve learned that there’s some weight to us having placed those pages up in recent weeks, so, the volley towards discussions continues.
Despite the happy-accident with Music being wildly distributed to YouTube, we shall enact for all of that to be resumed back to “us” and therefore, while being the easiest options at hand for distribution, because we don’t support big-tech in the traditional understandings that many employ, we want everyone to be aware that we have every intent to restore control over those standpoints.
So…..we…..don’t have an EXACT handle on this whole scenario yet. #Censorship BS aside, we have been tirelessly working to get all the freebies running for you guys and gals so we can just jump “completely” forward however, recordings and Song-catalog submissions have eaten some of that meantime (and rightfully so) but! All said, we’ve decided we’re just going to start letting “You” test some of the web-pages and let us know how they’re working per your devices etc.
As well, we’re going to be a little old-school in that we’re literally just going to put them in an open page-directory, kind of like 1990s Internet and just let you click as desired.
This directory will eventually be closed to not attract Bot content-scrapers etc. but!! For now, have fun.
And lastly, if you encounter problems then just let us know.
• These are all self-hosted/self-dedicated links, at no tyme are “you” required to register/sign-up for “any” uses
• As previously discussed, we’re removing all ads except for a couple of sliders and in-video streams (we did discuss entire removal but during testing we just want to see if it really doesn’t matter in terms of anything being intrusive etc.)
• As per now, the links are a mix of leftover YouTube residuals and some of our beta-pages however, they will all be renewed coding soon enough
So there’s been a few developments while we prepare to follow-through with the ideas stated in our last blog. All in all and on and on, EVERYTHING is SHTF – FUBAR – LMAO – BRB — Okay! Cultural acronym rant aside, what has happened? Well, for one, we’re now coming under #Censorship via a particular social-media entity and, its actually not something we said or did directly; no, it’s something Katlina Kliewer said or did or didn’t “resist” doing? Take your pick!! But! Don’t just take our word for it. You can see her information about it at the link below:
We have our own thing going and frankly, its not worth the time or energy it’d take to ponder who, what, when, why, how or any of that crap but, what we “do” know? If you have it in your hearts to keep on keeping on with us then please stay and when you occasionally come to view our musings etc., just remember to stay in the spirit of sticking it to “them” and let’s not worry about the rest because no matter what, like John Cougar Mellencamp said, “Oh yeah, life goes on…”
What’s New, Now:
Well, how about Instrumentals? Yes! See, there’s this thing that occurred. Basically, we’d been cracking down on our relationships with certain entites that exhibited CHI-COM behaviors, mainly, items like doing what they please, at will with our provided content etc. and well, one of our main distributors fudged something up and a bunch of our stuff ended up on YT (despite that we’d only designated particular titles to be shared on that video-network). — But — Oh well, WE’RE TURNING THIS IN OUR FAVOR. So, if you want to check those items out before we decide how to itemize “our” control over everything again, try the links underneath:
Right! But it got us to thinking about our inventory and basically, we can just start releasing the instrumentals at will. Think about it, “Why the heck not?!”
So keep your eyes out for this development…
Lastly for now, all that stuff we’d done regarding investor-relations etc., well, screw that for now; BIGGER fish to fry. As well, our primary advertising etc., well, we’re attempting to see what may be possible if we just perhaps, privatize it so with that said, if you have a link you’d like shared/displayed across our network then just contact us! Call, text, e-mail, whatever!!
We were going to say a lot more in this update but BLAH! There’s far much work to complete so thank-you for reading and we’ll be posting again very soon!
For fun, after your comment, say something completely random underneath it! Anything!! It could be true, false, comedic, just make it random and fun…
We’ve spent a ton of time mulling over everything occurring across the globe. And then there’s the bullshit we call, “Entertainment”. – On one hand, we’d like to feel “this” world, especially “now”, perhaps needs/wants creators? To rough it through?? Turning to us for enjoyment, hopefulness, distractions that maybe could ultimately lead to understanding…
But, the family of six that can’t make the car payment or mortgage couldn’t (and rightfully so, wouldn’t) give a rat’s anus.
We’d love to be able to say, “Our work is important too,” but, meh.
We owe more to everyone who ever took a listen to our sounds than we do to any so-called associative-entities that proclaim to aid in spotlighting our wares. – The kid at an Applebee’s style restaurant, the kids delivering food, the grown-ups keeping our water, electricity and so on, “on” for the while until we learn where things go next.
We “are” and have been the way we exists because we became tired of seeing creators getting screwed by broken paradigms which don’t value creative-efforts. All events happening now are making it painstakingly clear; while the Internet has offered opportunities for creators of all types, these so-called rules of what’s deemed, “The Attention Economy” are serving corporations firstly, leaving creators with less, less financial-stability, less creative-control, and less abilities to connect with both the like-minded and those who are otherwise enthused to journey along for the ride, the adventures otherwise unexplored without the people we call, “The Creators”.
Yeah, we remain rogue…
But, we don’t “really know” what the fuck to do either.
One item we’re going to do right off the bat is move as much of our catalogs as we can to a completely ‘Freenomic’ existence.
For those that recall us in our many incarnations and off-shoots, we’ve mostly always begun and remained in that manner but recently, we were pushing hard, expanding to fight the advertisers, sub-publishers and low-paying content-providers harder at their own games but today, right now, “Screw it all!”
Our next updates will be the links to whatever we have to offer…
If “You” have the moment to indulge, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK-YOU.
Well; the END IS NEAR?! The end of 2019 that is… The end of a decade… The beginning of a better era…..? Well, that’s the thing, right? Who knows, should we care, is it better to just say, “F*ck it!” – And like always, we’ve never been afraid to say, “F*ck it!” so, F*CK it!! – So what happens, what becomes of everything we hold dear, be it in ideas, beliefs, tolerances, or even perhaps, ideology?
Well, many items can happen. Maybe we’ll finally do something right and become one of the most powerful Music entities known to mankind! – Maybe we’ll fail horribly and drift off into the sunset…
Maybe we won’t fail but will somehow just fade off into obscurity despite our best efforts!
Or, perhaps we will succeed in a way that is pioneering of how success is defined in the new decades.
Anything, everything, and something is possible; all at once. But for now, all we can do, is, tell you a little bit about what’s coming in 2020.
So, without further ado, we give you, “THE OFFICIAL” Takeo Tama release-schedule.
Alright! So, what is homeostasis, for us? Well. We’ve had a long-line goal to become as self-sufficient as possible, in total regard to the creation, distribution, and expansionism of our audio and now, even our videos. Nothing is guaranteed, something is always around the corner, someone is always lurking, but never can “you” just know that what “you’re” doing will just stick with the onlooker. — So this is hard, and a little sad, but, it’s evolution.
Pretty much everything seen at any of our websites now, is self-hosted…
So yes; bandwidth costs, etc., etc. — It’s all up in the air now, and as explained in a previous blog, “you” can contribute if you want but really, all things thought of and said for the moment, this has become (albeit utterly), this has become exactly about building an entity that can lasts. That can derive, that can survive, that can flow with the next evolution, even, if it doesn’t necessarily have all the components in place for the exacts that may be changing because truthfully, in the next decade, it will be humanity moving into the quantum-computing eras and frankly, we’re likely all going to become lost, somewhere in all of that switch.
There are tons of rhymes and reasons behind much of this but, we’re going to cite one of our latest statements as food for thought regarding this very #blog you’re reading…
TakeoTama.com: “We’re Not Complicit, And Shall Never Contribute.”
KuneoKoei.com Brand and Channel operations resist FTC, COPPA pressures beginning at YouTube.com and associated third-party communications-hubs.
CHICAGO, IL (Midway) – TakeoTama.com – TAKEO TAMA, a leading provider of Music sound-recordings and obscure entertainments has issued its official stance pertaining to FTC/COPPA policy pressures, beginning at YouTube.com in relation to the current power-grab and monetary-pull being enacted across the platform by the Federal Trade Commission rules and regulations now imposed due to YouTube non-compliance with existing COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) laws.
“[YouTube] is more interested in throwing its user bases under the bus than being accountable and responsible for not complying with laws or regulations that they seemingly have known to have existed the entire time of their operations,” a Takeo Tama spokesperson explained.
“But we’re not bothered or worried in whole. You see, while a creator at [YouTube] will worry about their only platforming venture or option, typically, people and entities that have existed and expanded wider and as well, previously before the Internet as it is now known, will simply make a choice if [YouTube] is a good fit for continuing any style of business or ventures with.”
“At long last, in our case, it is plainly, disrespectful what [YouTube] is doing. Not many people or organizations are simplifying the shenanigans as such but in a pure outlook, like say, if [YouTube] was your human friend or colleague, based on their actions and inability to respond competently, if you asked yourself, would I still be friends or do business with this person albeit company, would you say yes or no?”
“Either way, further regarding our stance, all we’ve ever been able to do is ask of our audience to contribute where, when, and however they can. We’ve set more mechanisms for anyone interested in contributing but we are always realistic and well aware that we’re in a world where some people think a buck for a song or signing up for a free subscription to any service to hear us is a high toll to pay.”
“[YouTube] was a great middle ground to introduce new listeners and recapture previous audiences but truly, why gamble with a federal commission that’s seemingly enamored with a potential money grab.”
“We’re not complicit and shall never contribute.” Takeo Tama concluded.

We’ll be here in the new decade, still doing the strongest material we can, but, besides doing it smarter, wiser, and when required, aggressively, we’re going to be doing everything at capacity, the best we can. If that sounds confusing, just think of finding a way to do the things you do for yourself that still feels comfortable but as well, somehow, resembles the most awesome factory assembly line you could ever want to make certain that your desire to evolve doesn’t get hindered so much by any forms of anxiety, depression, or clueless-procrastination.
Not often, but every once in a blue-moon, some person or entity will ask, “Do you guys have alternative funding methods up and running?”, and for a truly, very long while, we’ve just sat on the fence because for us, whether as people or as a company, it’s never been this all important, total encompassing “thing” to try and get more monies beyond the Major-4 retail-earnings and royalties etc., and, while they’re not all that much these days, it’s always been a matter of “just” feeling fine, treading the lines and willing, hoping for all the best, making the greatest audio-experiences we can.
And we still feel this way, but, we’ve added something to “experiment” with this sentiment…
Talking about money sucks; all said, for instance, when a person or entity can’t monetize on YouTube then the alternatives are either ask, beg, or hope. Well, we’ll just say the facts! When you listen to our stuff at Apple, Amazon, Spotify, or Google-Play, it helps!! But on the flip-side, at our website, neither YouTube or the companies listed above are providing enough return to keep doing what we do at the highest-quality and at scale, so, simply put, ANY CONSIDERATION for a DONATION is deeply and greatly appreciated.
So without further ado, we present a new website section, just for “You” (a.k.a. “The” person or entity that may want to help with the many items beyond adding us to a playlist or purchasing a download).
Want to help us further our distribution and marketing?
