Sent from My Nokia Flip Phone, Part 2

I think the thing I was attracted to in music — that shout-at-the-top-of-your-lungs music where you lose consciousness and become pure energy — the thing that attracted me was telling a story, manipulating emotion, lifting people in a way that perhaps only art can. Terence McKenna said, “Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given … Read More

Sent from My Nokia Flip Phone

I’ve had this blog since 2002. I was browsing through archives the other day when thinking about re-booting it. Thirteen years now, and no post more recent than five years. I suppose all told I average a post or two a year. And most of them really don’t say anything. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, but … Read More

Libraries, the Singularity & You

The following is a post I recently wrote for our staff newsletter thingamajig. It isn’t supposed to be ultra-techy but just introduce some emerging technologies to people that aren’t regularly exposed to such things. When I was growing up in the 1980’s I was a fan of a lot of the same things as any South Florida guy: the Miami … Read More

Drupal & Twitter Update

Hi guys! Thanks for the comments and interest on the first Twitter article. I’m planning to write more at some point, but I’m balancing my creative writing and creating the new Drupal site for as well. So I may be an example of a bad tweeter on the @pbclibrary account for a while. I think the next article will … Read More

How Your Library May Not Be Using Twitter But Should

I’ve been doing some workshops recently on social networking (especially Twitter) for our library system and thought I would collect some of this information here because I usually can’t cover everything I would like and it may also be useful information for other libraries. Background Plenty has been said about the banality of many Twitter messages. Enough of you probably … Read More

Classic MP3 Mix

Adam Singer and I were recently chatting about a mix I did a while back – we generally agreed that it was probably the best mix I ever released on the net and still sounds good today. I thought I’d make it available again. I will see if I can dig up a tracklisting for it. It is two hours … Read More

Libraries and the Web

Image via Wikipedia A lot of you guys may know I’ve been with the Palm Beach County Library System for a while now working on some new technologies for the system. I may occasionally use this blog to discuss some things I’ve learned that may help others, or may light a new path that some might not have envisioned. Briefly, … Read More


So I hear the entire Pure Music Recordings catalog is now on iTunes. Very cool. I’m not necessarily suggesting people go back and buy my previous music because much dance music is such a fleeting, transient thing but it’s cool to have stuff on there.

Image via CrunchBase I’ve been using this service lately.  It’s a little like a cross between twitter and internet radio but it becomes increasingly addictive as you make more friends and everything starts integrating.  Highly suggested! Become one of my listeners here. (Which is the same thing as “following” in Twitterspeak or “friending” in other social services.) I actually … Read More

38 Day Anniversary Party

While we very much hope no one comes, if some should endeavor to show up we hope you will keep these things in mind: The party will feature none of the bands on the flyer. If some should show up, we will not be held responsible. We don’t know exactly when this event will start but it will likely be … Read More
