Who would have thought that a social network that has only been out for 3 months would have the social network king Facebook scrambling so hard to keep up. Today Facebook announced it is going to add new friend features that resemble Google+ circles. I hope that they can come up with a better strategy than copying the good features of Google for their sake.  Either way if you are still using Facebook remember one thing, YOU ARE USING A SECOND RATE SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLET.



NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a modern-day dilemma: You really want your Facebook friends to see that wild party photo of you wearing bunny ears. But you’re not so keen on explaining it to your mother-in-law.

Well, Facebook aims to make life easier.

Beginning Wednesday, the social network will make it easier to share photos, posts and links with smaller, isolated groups of people. While the site has allowed users to separate their friends into lists since 2007, this option took quite a bit of work and only a small fraction of Facebook users took advantage of it.

Now, Facebook will automatically group your friends based on whether they live near you, went to your school or work with you. You can read posts or share updates with specific groups instead of dozens, or hundreds, of “friends” at a time. Facebook will use the colleges, workplaces and geographic locations that users share on the site to organize people into groups. Called “smart lists,” the feature is optional to use, and the lists are customizable.

“Users don’t really want to spend a lot of time creating and maintaining friend lists,” said Naomi Gleit, the director of product at Facebook who worked on the feature.

In addition, you can create your own friend groups with as few or as many as you would like, based around hobbies, work projects or relatives, for example.

Listing people as “close friends,” meanwhile, will ensure that you will see the posts and photos from the dozen or so friends you care about the most. Updates from these people will feature more prominently in your news feed and you can opt to receive email notifications every time they post something on Facebook, Gleit said.

Conversely, those categorized as “acquaintances” will feature less prominently on your Facebook page, and you will see just big news, such as marriages and new babies.

Facebook’s latest move takes a page from Google Plus, the fledgling social network launched this summer by the online search leader. Google’s service so far has not threatened to unseat Facebook as the world’s biggest online social network. But its sleek design and innovative, privacy-focused features piqued the interest of many Facebook users and critics, helping to foster healthy competition among these Silicon Valley neighbors.






The Music Video Genome Project is like pandora for music videos.  It is still early in its development some it has some bugs and doesn’t always bring up the music videos, sometimes it is just the album cover with some music, but over all i could see this becoming a big fad especially for those of you who have your computer hooked to your HD TV for parties this would be a big hit.

Music MashUp Madness. [REMIX]

So I have always been a fan of the trend of mashing different types of music together to make fun beats. below are a few of my favorite mashups.

Pimps and Jokers by TapeMaster Inc.

Tom Petty vs 50Cent

Baby Be Loved by TapeMasters Inc.

Fabulous vs Maroon 5

Nirvana vs Europe by Wax Audio

Staying Alive In The Wall By Wax Audio

The BeeGees vs Pink Floyd


I have always been a big fan of the band Dispatch.  I got into them in college and was lucky enough to see them play on their last tour.  then out of no where due to some unforeseen family problems and deaths the band broke up.  And they stayed broken up for 9 years or more.  Randomly I was surfing the interwebs and i saw they were playing a reunion tour and i had to do whatever i could to get tickets to the show.  Boy Oh Boy! Did it ever pay off to get tickets to the smallest venue on the tour in Saint Louis Missouri at The Pageant.

The Pageant was packed, and the crowd was a buzz with anticipation.  The doors opened at 6 pm and there was no opening act before Distpatch took the stage at 8pm. Since The Pageant is open seating, basically a giant bar with a big stage, we arrived plenty early to get seats and the place was already packed.  This only added to the excitement. For the last hour before they took stage every time the music in the bar got quite people started cheering hoping it was the start of the show.

When the time finally came Dispatch held nothing back. The played a great version of Open Up.

Pay close attention to the instruments the band is playing becuase throughout the show they switched it up.  I think each one of them played Bass Guitar, Electric Guitar, and Drums.

I was so happy that came back out for an encore to play one of my favorite songs Ellias.  It has a great beat and is definitely a crowd favorite. I didn’t provide the whole song so i wouldn’t spoil it for when you go see them play…

What really makes a Dispatch show special though it the atmosphere.  I have been to few concerts where that many people know the words to all the songs.  Also they always throw in some fun covers, this next cover of Mrs. Robison was a great surprise.

They also did a great cover of a sublime song and a few others, not to be a spoiler.

All I have to say is look at the crowd at the end of the show.

Randomly today I discovered this awesome musician on YouTube.

She does a bunch of covers including

Feel Good Inc

I need Air

Electric Feel by MGMT

however she also has some originals like this one

Behind Closed Doors

below is a link to her youtube page.




Blues-rock duo The Black Keys chose YouTube to announce the upcoming album from their side project Blakroc, a collaboration with hip-hop entrepreneur Damon Dashon.

Blakroc features various emcees rapping over original music from The Black Keys. Per the trailer,Blakroc 2 will feature rappers such as Talib Kweli, U-God, the Cool Kids, Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Jay Electronica, Jim Jones, Sean Price and OC, all of whom appear in the recording studio during the video. It may not give much insight into what the album will sound like, but there’s a lot of smoking.

It’s common for artists to use free services like YouTube to preview and promote upcoming work. Recently, Tom Waits used the service to announce his new album, Bad As Me, which will be released Oct. 25. However, The Black Keys’ teaser doesn’t reveal its impending release date, simply saying “Coming soon.” The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney even tweeted last night, probably sarcastically, “There are no actual plans to release blakroc 2. We’ve been trying for months to work out a partnership with @redlobster…to no avail”

With the popularity of The Black Keys at an all-time high following the band’s Grammy-winning 2010 album Brothers, perhaps simply getting the word out early creates a success. The video already has more than 16,000 views.

Will you be looking forward to the release?

Continuing my tracking of The Werks as they travel across the country preforming many different music festivals, I have acquired some film of them from EF music festival.

I recently got the privilege to go to Saint Louis Missouri and see one of my old favorite bands THE GET OF KIDS, play a show at THE FIREBIRD.

This was a special treat because the firebird is a small venue and it was almost like going to see a private show.  These guys can still rock and made me remember all of the reasons why going to a punk rock shows were fun.

Check Out the video below from the show.

This first video was during the encore, but it was always one of my favorite songs and they invited the entire crowd to get up on stage with them.



The Video Below Is of the opening act who I regretfully was only able to catch the very end of but they definitely new how to jam.

This video was made by STAUNCHY on YouTube.

It was done be attaching a camera to one point on a hula hoop and made for one of the coolest festival videos I have seen this season so far.

Also he has posted tester shot of some other hoops he filmed.
