Tagworld and the social networking lottery (or How much more do we get for having a cool music feature?)

March 28, 2006


Have you visited Tagworld, yet. Some changes have been made…

You don't have to log in to use their Music Discovery Engine. Just goto and enter a band you like. It will then play songs from that band and other similar artists. Way Cool.

And Everclear and The Pet Shop Boys have made it into the lineup meaning I've been listening for the past hour…(currently playing: My Little Underground by The Jesus and Mary Chain)

Seeing that Facebook is looking for two Billion dollars (Scott, to save you the trouble, here's a Facebook horror story)  I'm sure Fred and the Tagworld gang will be collecting paychecks soon.

Visit it before they get bought out by Pepsico!


Heroin Addiction, BlogMedia and The Art Of The Comeback In Internet Time

March 7, 2006

One of my favorite songs of all-time is “Strawberry” by the used-to-be-famous band “Everclear“.

The song is about a heroin addict’s struggle to stay clean.

For some reason that song was in my head this morning as I thought about the latest news from BlogMedia.

Things were looking pretty bleak for BlogMedia earlier this year.


The Duncan Riley Farewell Tour

February 25, 2006

So this is how it ends.

Duncan RileyBlogosphere Hall Of Fame candidate (oh, they’ll be one!) gives his farewell speech thanking everyone from Christian Churmlish of Radio Free Blogistan to Darren Rowse. (God nor Jesus were mentioned but we’ll assume they’re still basking in the glow of being mentioned several times at the Source Awards.)


Word On The Street:An Open Letter To Web Future Guys From Us Regular Cool User Guys

February 24, 2006


I’m not a tech guy.

I’m just a regular dude with a music background and an interest in new media. I read with interest those folks who obviously know a lot more than me about whats going on.

But these folks sometimes seem to miss something kinda important.
