Curating Your Butt 2

So this blogging thing is fun.
Between all the people hawking their wares, pitching their webinars, seminars and ebooks, there are people who are just using the medium and the tangents (most notably Twitter) just to meet other people.
I think the information sharing and the exchange of opinions are the two most important things that are derived, weak ties be damned.
I highlighted three bloggers a few weeks ago and I would like to do so again.
First, @damondnollan. I mentioned our exchange a week ago but really think you should give him a chance here at his blog.
Second, @danperezfilms. Some might say I took it too far this week with my open letter to Dan. But his unhealthy obession with Tom Cruise (and mine too apparently) aside, Dan does great stuff online and you can find him here. My only question is can he show me where how and when two of my favorite shows are shot, The Glades and Burn Notice. 
Finally, @markwschaefer. I find myself disagreeing with this "social media bouncer." (is that like a club bouncer or someone who gets around a lot online?) I disagree, but he still comments back without hesitation. Find my ramblings on his ramblings here. 
Oddly enough, I just realized I've done six gents in a row, but I have met some chicas that deserve a callout too. Definitely devoting time to that in the near future, but if you have someone you'd recommend, drop me a line.

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
