      Officially created the 3.0 Chorus branch. Enough bug fixes, and one big change, to implement.

      Spent 2 bucks on Spider-Man stickers for iMessage. Because of course I did.

      Monthly avatar change time ... going with The Flash for this month. While Hannah was gone over the past week I watched an entire season of the CW show late at night and it was a nice distraction.

      As I become more disillusioned with Twitter and social media in general, I think I’m gonna start deleting all my tweets each year. I’ll tweet for a year, then clear it.

      Back on a Pennywise kick. Doing a full discography listen. Forgot how much I love their early releases.

      Update: Very strange, not sure why it got weird today on Mobile Safari, but I think I fixed it.

      Hmm. Ok, time to look into whatever the hell is going on with Twitter embeds.

  • 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: 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 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.
