      Love when a big project is complete and then I can start working on just cranking out some bug fixes I've been trying to get to.

      Legit thinking of pulling Google Analytics from this website. I just don't know why I need it anymore and I don't think the benefits are worth it.

      New supporter system rolled out, main website server and software upgraded and updated, forum server upgraded and updated. Whew. Not a bad weekend. And only a couple minor hiccups along the way.

  • 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.
