      Thomas reads out Sum 41 track names on the podcast and I can't stop giggling.

      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.

      My biggest vice is that I have a few beers and buy upgrades to apps I already have.

      Nice Friday night with some basketball, a good beer, and now some TV and reading. Life is good.

      Every time I listen to Less Than Jake I fall back in love with just how fucking good this band (and their discography) is.

      Hmm, I got Apple Music to work with Last.fm finally, maybe I should start using that again after basically a year of zero scrobbling.

      It's 2016 and this new Ariana Grande is more appealing than new Brand New. Whatyaknow.

      It still surprises me to no end how much Manchester Orchestra's 'Cope' got shit on.

      I am going to forever be in the minority that flat out loves 'The King of Limbs.'

      I thought 'Civil War' was only ok. Very flawed film that seems to be getting a pretty big pass.

        Flawed how? Or have you already fleshed out your thoughts in the Civil War thread?

      I can't get over how bad the music was in 'Civil War.' This bugs me way more than it should.

      What a day! I had an absolute blast even if it was stressful and pretty crazy at times. One of those "oh, yeah, I fucking love this job" kind of days. I guess I'll see everyone at 7:00am tomorrow for some more live blogging the radio, heh, just like the old days. (AND THE SERVERS SURVIVED THE WHOLE DAY! Which I am kinda super secret excited about.)

        Sure is nice to be able to add new emoji when it feels right and not jump through hoops.

      I'm just saying, after the new Blink-182 song, if Tom calls and wants back in, the band have every right to "new phone, who dis?"

  • 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.
