I answered some more questions from the below blog post (and a few from Facebook). And, as per request, I put the file up for download as well. Hopefully I answered everything to your liking - if not - ask more in the replies and when I have some spare time (ie: multi-tasking around the office) I'll try and get them answered and posted.
As from the post below: Feel free to ask anything you'd like about the new version of AP.net, the future of music (online/offline), bands I may be enjoying, business stuff, the future of this website, design theories, yadayadayada, or anything else you'd like to know.
Take Notice gave us some love for being the first website to post a review of their EP. They're also giving away said EP on their myspace page (download it here). If you like pop-punk with a harder edge like New Found Glory, Four Year Strong, and/or Set Your Goals - check this EP out. If these kids can put together a full-length like this ... consider me a fan.
My favorite album of the year can be purchased for $3.99 on Amazon MP3. This album hit me at the perfect time and has had the same "taste evolution" on me that Brand New's Deja Entendu did -- that is, it opened my eyes (and ears) to a wide variety of new music and styles. I think it's one of the best, most creative, and lyrically powerful albums I've heard in a long time.
Curious what we're thinking about featuring in in the Amazon MP3 deals coming up? Some of the names tossed around are as follows (we're trying to do our favorites, new releases, as well as a few classics):
Continuing our teaming up with Amazon MP3: this week you can get Anberlin's new album for only $3.99. I think this is the band, more than maybe any other, I've been able to get my friends outside of this online world to fall in love with. Great message, great sound.
I was recently asked to come on a radio show and talk about AP.net and politics. The interview can be heard here -- I rabble more than usual (the socialism question is hard to answer in quick sound bites) and definitely mispronounce words when I do so (I know, it's concerto), but oh well.
Suppose this will pass some time as Julia works on putting the some 80+ page staff interview together for everyone -- if there are any questions/comments or you wish to discuss/get sources for anything I mention ... feel free to leave a comment in that thread.
I created a new ringtone for myself (before I had the chorus of "All at Once" by Valencia as the tone) ... but I finally found something to out do it.
Download it here if you want it. Hahahah. This will probably get annoying in a few weeks and I'll need another one ... but for now, I can't wait until people call me. I wonder if anyone would get the joke if I'm out in public and my phone rings.
