      Sing Street is up there as my favorite movie of the year so far. I can't recommend it enough.

        Searched for a Hellogoodbye thread and found this status, haha. Apparently there was a new single back in December/January that I still haven't heard, so maybe this year?

      One thing I like: Trump proving once and for all the stupid "all press is good press" is pure and utter bullshit. Been saying it for years.

      Can't watch this RNC shit anymore. There's a new Ignite album I forgot about that came out this year ... so, I'll be over here blowing out my eardrums if anyone needs me.

      Finished 'Ready Player One' — definitely loved this one. Recommended. Gonna have to give 'Armada' a run next.

      Fall Out Boy's 'Ghostbusters' song actually made me afraid of music demons coming back to life and eating my soul.

      'Any Given Wednesday' was a trainwreck. I've seen better YouTube shows.

      I wouldn't buy the flower penis shirt anyway, cause explaining an upside down cross is not on my lists of things to do, but I legit can't understand how the typography can be this bad. It's the merch equivalent of "Moshi Moshi."

      There are two kinds of people in this world. Those that like A Wilhelm Scream and I don't care about the other.

  • 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.

    I send out a weekly newsletter that recaps the week in music and offers thoughts on music, media, and other cool stuff. It's sent out on Friday.

    My email address is public: jason@chorus.fm; 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 simple question.
