In keeping with Friday’s “casual dress policy,” I’m injecting some spontaneity and humor into the mix here. Don’t worry, our cutting and dry editorial style will return on Monday morning.
I took great joy moments ago in canceling my MySpace account for TheMusicSnob. I wasn’t interested in spending ANY time on their site, and so I wasn’t making any human connections there at all. A total waste of time.
Now I can focus my efforts on composing Twitter haikus about the Olympic games.
You May Already Be Famous in Japan
Have you ever dreamed of achieving super-stardom in Japan? Then go to YouMusic, where foreigners can look at pictures and stare puzzled at Japanese text. Or click on the “English” link to have the site magically transform, and add a profile of your own. I’m curious to see how it’s done on the other side of the world, and will be creating a profile later today. I also want to hear what indie Japanese music sounds like!
What I love about Facebook is that it is actually useful. For connecting with people I actually know.
Given that, I’m not sure how useful adding a TheMusicSnob page to my profile will be, but here it is anyway.
Sidenote: It will be great when Google owns EVERY tech company in the world, that way we’ll only have to upload our videos, photos, blog posts, songs, etc. once.
This weekend I’m leaving the comfort of the quiet Manhattan streets for the big city lights of Philadelphia. Going to see a friend play some live music, hang out, and hopefully gather with some musicians and bang on pots and pans.
If you have any suggestions related to Philly, let’s have them.
