      Ok, time to re-think Encore and get that flowing again. Lists of ideas need to translate into something.

        Did you finish it? I think what I like about that show the most is that it somehow manages to turn from an outright comedy into a compelling crime drama pretty seamlessly

      I like this Tonight Alive album. It's got some filler, but it's also got some really fun songs.

      The Kindle should be able to give me better reading stats than it does. Amount read, speed, average ... easy stuff.

      This period of time is always so slow in the music industry.

      The Maine are going to have an album in my top 10 of the year. I never saw that coming.

      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.

      Taking the main website down for about 10 minutes to do a server migration.

  • 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 completely. 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.
