      Amazon: One bottle of glass cleaner: $14.98. 8 bottles of glass cleaner: $10.

      This is why my pantry is full of cleaning products.

      We're watching 90s movies now. I don't know why.

      The Star Wars board game 'Rebellion' is a whole lot of fun. Took all day to learn and play but so worth it.

      Rewired the office with Cat-6 cable, and we're off the races on the iMac. I've never had internet this fast before.

      Finally got a new Brand New album, guess I should change my avatar to celebrate for a month.

      New podcast up now all about the album/my thoughts on it.

      Hard to care about music news, even by one of my favorite bands, on a day like today.

      Nazis are back. They're emboldened. Our president is to blame.

      Fuck! What is happening?

      Fuck it, I'm just going to write my own Xenforo/Wordpress bridge.

      This coding project needs to be re-thought. It's just not working right. It's too complicated for something that should effectively be simple and transparent to users. Fuck.

      Listening to Ed Sheeran while posting news today. Dunno why, just felt like it.

      Another minor setback on my current coding project. Fuck. But, for the sake of security it's worth doing right.

      Wish I woulda done this before launching the site. Having so many members makes it wayyyyyyyyy harder.

  • About

    [​IMG]I’m a writer, music enthusiast, web-developer, typography geek, podcaster, and a coffee and beer snob. Sometime around 1996 I created absolutepunk.net — a music community to discuss under-appreciated music I loved. Over the next few years, it got popular. Then it got really popular. The goal of the website was to introduce people to new music and provide a community for people to discuss music that was not often heard in the mainstream. Oh, and for me to whine and moan about things I felt like to a chorus of “why is this news!?” posts.

    In 2004, I (sold-out and) sold the company while staying on to keep running AP.net and manage a variety of other websites. My passion turned into a job and I drudged through the next few years frustrated. For a while I thought about walking away from the internet and finding what many consider a ‘real job.’ However, my passion for music, technology, and a slightly off centered pop-culture remains. So, I decided to take a chance and with that spirit build chorus.fm. I hope for this to be a platform to write and share my passions with you, and with that, I also want to continue my vision of a community for music fans looking to connect with kindred spirits.

    This is going to be a journey — thank you for taking it with me.

    My email address is public: [email protected]; however, please note that I get a lot of email and can't promise a response. Reaching out via Twitter or on these forums is usually a great way if you've got a question.

    P.S. I've also got a weekly podcast called Encore about music, pop-culture, movies, tech, and other cool stuff. Maybe you'll like it.
