Showing “Love” for my homies…

03.31.2007 by Mark Forman

So I am filling in the blanks on my anecdotes from yesterday's blog post and pimping a good new tune by BroLo and a good cause. Mentioned in cast are CC Chapman, PodcastNYC, and Rob Safuto. Go check out BroLo at the "BJam" if you can and make sure to send some love to help […]

Stoking the Hype Machine…

03.30.2007 by Mark Forman

 Fujoshi I'll admit it-from time to time I come up with some really good analogies. No, I'm not one of the more famous blog/vlog/podcast pundits... I am however able to speak my mind and have a sense of humor (yes, very warped). I was just prompted by another new-media creature friend (one that I even met […]

Musical Nudist Colony???

03.30.2007 by Mark Forman

Yes, I am using MOG and it bills itself as a "musical nudist colony." Whatever that means. In fact I think this site has much to offer (I've been using for a day so I'm still learning) and uses it's xml tools to link up info from your song files (in your hard drive via […]

Geeking Out…

03.29.2007 by Mark Forman

Uhoh-I usually snicker at my friends geekery but... I have to give credit where it's due. Firefox browser 2.0.0.3 with cool iris previews (allows me to go deeper into windows by mouse touching-kind of like Snap...) and Foxy Tunes-lets me control ITunes from browser menu with extensive functions. I dig it. Lest I forget-Google's web tools […]

I received e-mail from them today that they have reached their 1 millionth download of their albums (almost said record-it is a digital album and record I guess). Kudos Jamendo on getting out so much music  to so many […]

Almost did this yesterday…

03.27.2007 by Mark Forman

Ya know yesterday when I read this post I almost trackbacked to it and didn't. Now...well all I can say it shows some of the significant power and mobility of new media. It also shows the decency and compassion of some people when presented with the sad circumstances of another. The people in question are […]

The more things change…

03.26.2007 by Mark Forman

dr. motte The more things change the more they stay the same(or in this case recycle). The music business is becoming a singles oriented affair (consumer-friendly freedom of choice model) shifting away from the album format(push model record company forces consumer to buy collection of songs for bundled sale). In essence the listening of recorded music has […]

Non-sequiturial ping-pong(aka:Twitter)

03.23.2007 by Mark Forman

Tales of an LA Addict I fired a salvo at my boy Brad P about "egg creams," he of course responded and tagged me back with "Scruffy the Cat." For those of you who don't know about Scruffy they were one hell of a live act whose record was just "ok" IMHO.  I imagine there are […]

4 Dozen Approaches….

03.22.2007 by Mark Forman

 something.in.my.eye Well just a couple of days away from #48. The numbers don't mean anything anymore. Every birthday is a cause for celebration. It is a reminder that I am alive and have much to be thankful for, starting out with a life to live. Nah, not preaching any Jonathan Livingston Seagull kind of philosophy. […]
