Molotov.bliss (acronymed Mb) is the pseudonym and/or brain child of Jared Blalock AKA: B00MER. Who likes to call himself a Creative Engineer, a Music Producer, Developer, Creative engineer, and a Ghost in the shell.
Completely self taught and motivated by technology itself. It is the drive behind wanting to learn as much as possible about new technology and the possibilities and opportunities they can create. Coming from the days of 2400 Baud modems, Doom and consuming as much of the Demoscene art subculture as possible. Ocular Fiend, Audiophile and Coding Robot.
What’s a molotov.bliss? What’s really in a name? Other than a label attached to the things we have created and done for ubiquity.

Previously a part of one of the very first netlabels: Kosmic Free Music Foundation or KFMF, (1994-2000). Still producing today. Releasing most tracks for free via Soundcloud and other channels independently. My choice of Digital Audio Workstations is ReNoise. More than happy to license my sounds to those interested.
“…And i’d like to just continue to be able to express myself as best as i can with this instrument and i feel like i have a lot of work to do still, i’m a student – of the drums and i’m also a teacher of the drums too”
A small selected collection over a period of many years, of many different creative projects. Some are live screenshots from a browser. Some are Adobe Photoshop mock-ups, while others are magazine and/or flyer designs. Molotov.bliss was also a featured site of the day on About.com and FlashKit, for a Flash based version of molotovbliss.com back around 2000. Other designs can also be found on my BeHance and DeviantArt profiles.
