        Could be worse: you could have eight inches of snow in your driveway.

      The Martian won best comedy. This award show is weird.

        Matt Damon getting impaled by something during a Mars storm = comedy gold.

      There comes a point when developing something that it stops being yours and you have to release it to the world. I guess that's now.

        I hope people like it. I've been working in isolation so long on this I don't know what the thoughts will be. If I've been talking to myself for too long and no one cares. Haha. Guess time will tell.

      'Always Sunny' and 'You're the Worst' didn't get a nom for best comedy but 'Orange is the New Boring' did?! Yeah ok Golden Globes.

      The McDonalds' "McPick 2" theme song sounds like the kind of band Fearless Records would sign.

  • 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.
