January 4th, 2007 tony 3 comments

We brought a new team member on just before the end of 2006. Beckham is quite young and certainly green in the industry but his energy is unparalleled and hes already fitting in not to mention that he has taken on the role of security even though that wasn’t in the job description.

Bono Sues Bank of America for Defamation

It hasn’t happened yet but I’m predicting the legal filings next week if he doesn’t have a heart attack when he sees this. Thanks to Rae for making me laugh hysterically and vomit at the same time. My favorite part:

Have you heard about Michelle Shepard? She’s leading the team in the Northeast.

Killer Idea for KEXP and Other Listener Supported Radio Pledge Drives

October 24th, 2006 Tony 1 comment

kexp.gifI’m a big fan of listener supported radio stations like KEXP in Seattle and KCRW from Santa Monica, CA and I’ve given money to both but I really hate the long winded pleas for money. So this weekend in the mountains I came up with an idea that will rock the radio pledge drives. Stations like KEXP have a huge internet audience. The problem with the old school pledge drive is that it goes on FOREVER. Give me the chance to make it stop on demand I will gladly donate on day 1.

Heres the idea:

  • During the pledge drive you promote the URL
  • When I, the listener from across the ether goes to that URL I can easily register an account and donate money
  • As soon as I donate the minimum amount I am given a login and password that allows me access to a private streaming feed that brings me the usual awesome streaming indie rock that I love. I don’t have to wait for 3 week long pledge drive to end.

Pay to Play!

I’m sure your bottom line will more than double and I can keep listening to commercial free radio.

Borat is Mahir… I Kiss You!

October 11th, 2006 Tony 10 comments

I keep seeing the ads for the movie Borat and I couldn’t remember the name of the Turkish guy’s website that it reminded me of from the late 90’s. Finally wikipedia hooked me up and I found it. Mahir! Yeah they aren’t the same guy but Borat must have been derived from Mahir.

Cool Flickr set feature

October 8th, 2006 Tony No comments

I was always annoyed at how Flickr couldn’t keep my photos in order of date taken when I created a new set. After some messing around I discovered that they have added this feature. Go Flickr! The screenshot below should show you how to change the ordering. Hey Flickr… this should be the default behavior :)
