Now that I’ve finished my EP, (which you should check out if you haven’t already), I’ve gotten the chance to get hep to the new things out there on the webosphere.
First off is Google+, which I am now on, although it seems like not as much is happening there just yet. I am mostly interested in what kind of circles people are putting me in, and exactly how ridiculous I can get with my groupings of people with it still being functional as a social network. That and group video chat. I mostly feel like it will go way of twitter with most of the people I know being still on facebook. I feel like if everyone complains when facebook gets updated (I wish I had a digital shotgun to take out the new chat bar thing), then the new sites are going to be slow to start.
The second thing is turntable.fm. If you haven’t been there yet, I would describe it as Pandora, but your peers and yourself are making the playlist. I’ve been perusing the house rooms on the site to fill my DJing addiction since I’ve moved away from my beloved KWVA. So far, I’ve learned that the term house actually refers to anything electronic, especially dubstep. Also, Born Slippy, that classic from Underworld, clears the dance floor. Mostly, I’ve just had trouble finding all of my ten year old tracks on the site to lay down for the people. Regardless of my experience, I’m sure you will enjoy it if you are like me and love playing and listening to tracks with your friends. If you decide to join the party, hit me up, I would be the one named Clodewerks.
Tech-wise, other than those two new things, I’ve been trolling the craigslist for work and spending some quality time on steam to let off some steam at the end of the day.
Thursday will be my remix of Subaqueous’ track, “Puddle Step.” I’ll explain how I went about it and why I am naming it the webfoot remix. Next week’s Thursday will probably be some web work, something with PHP and MySQL, and next week’s Tuesday I might talk about all the stuff I am doing this week with meeting people and rehearsing with some new groups. Keep in touch and make sure to + up with me on google!
