      Inbox ... zero ... finally.

      Time for some pizza, a beer, and a good book.

      Monthly avatar change time. I'm continuing my baseball theme over the past few months and I'm going with Mickey Mantle. Iconic black and white photo, iconic player — seemed fitting for July.

      Monthly avatar change ... going with Calvin and Hobbes playing baseball. Goes well with my re-found love of baseball and my forever love of Calvin and Hobbes.

      Making notes for Chorus 3.0. The main site needs some tweaks, I'm not completely happy with it.

  • 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.
