Another Resolution for 2008

me

Besides being a sexy geek for 2008 as resolution, I have another one.  I saw this video over at ill doctrine about being first when it applies to blogging. I have to totally agree with my man Jay Smooth. A lot of bloggers try to get the news first instead of bringing their own perspective to the story. So my goal for next year when it comes to my blogs is to be more insightful and bring a different perspective to the stuff I find on the internet. Anyhoo, y’all have a happy new year!

What is Crohn’s Disease

I mentioned earlier that I am going to have an operation for my Crohn’s Disease.   A lot of people have never heard of it.  Here is a documentary worth checking out. It is called True Guts. Also check out this great blog about a guy living with Crohn’s.

Site of the Day: Create your own Virtual Mixtape

the mixtape

I missed the days of creating mixtapes for friends back in the day. I use to make mix cds, but it was a little inconvenient to share with somebody in another state or country especially with out the instant reaction. This is where Mixaloo comes in. I found about this site from Springwise.

mixaloo

With Mixaloo, you can create your own mix from over 3 Million Songs. Then you can share your mix on your myspace, facebook, blog, or any other website.  Here is the kicker.  You can make money from your mix.  If people purchase the songs off of your mix, you get some money.  The money would be sent to a paypal account. If you don’t have a paypal account, you will need to set up one.  The only problem right now is that the songs are only 30 second preview (which sucks), but they are apparently working on full tracks.  Give it a try.  It is a cheap gift to give for the holidays and you could make some money to boot.

Speaking of Mix Tapes go check out Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore’s Book Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture.

The book is a collection of stories, essays, art, and other contributions by various artists, musicians, and writers. It centers around the role of the mix tape and cassette culture in the lives of the contributors, which stands as a testimony to the importance of the medium starting in the late 1970’s to its relevance today. Here tapes are used mostly to confess love or admiration, or to expose an acquaintance to new and underground music. (From Wikipedia)
