Share/Save/Bookmark in a fog

The future for certain sites, particularly is in a bit of a fog presently.

If you are unfamiliar with the site, it is similar to a or pandora, in the way of music recommendation, however it is based on the manual input of particular songs to be shared by members whom you choose to follow. If a song is listed in the database, an optional mini-description and or notes may be included, similar to a twitter status update.

I joined the site last October, however only began using it recently. I am watching twitter more closely these days and visiting sites, such as myspace, less and less due to time and interest and can send the music updates directly to twitter so you can see the musical selections being shared by the folks whose updates you follow. This is yet another method, filling the absence of relevant radio and being introduced to new music.

Being an avid music lover, always with a voracious appetite for new tunes, I love this, however, some record labels, publishers and artists do NOT love this which brings us to the status of

The site was funded for it's opening in 2008 and it's co-founder/ CEO, Jeff Yasuda, from San Francisco, is also responsible for sites such as (which recently closed), wrote an update discussing the details for change here. Of course, not everyone wants their music to be streamed and those who do, will want to join, which will be the grandparent's attic of songs for future enjoyment. Presently, folks outside of the states can not access all of the music which could become a bigger issue for, however, at the rate of growth from the site, a number of paths could form to provide a strong life.

If you are a musician, label, manager, it is another great avenue to spread the sounds of your art to hungry ears.

Read all about it!

What an amazing film: The Brothers Bloom

Tonight after the weekly $2 Sushi outing to Fat Fish in Koreatown. My pals, Jenz & Angela and I went to see the 10:25 screening of THE BROTHERS BLOOM @ The Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.

I will want to write something more ultimately, but having just returned, I will say this... It is a great adventure of the two brothers, who are con men & how their final con, before the younger brother, played by Adrien Brody (The Pianist), is played as he is blown away by the woman whom he is supposed to fool, Rachel Weisz.

The story takes place in various countries and combines a classic physical and satirical comedy as well as suspense and even a good ride that allows the romance of the idea of the story to be sincere!

I highly recommend this!

The writer & director, Rian Johnson, is also responsible for the film "BRICK", which was low-fi to say the least. But it did have some folks such as Lukas Haas, who I just ran into at Guitar Center recently.

Last note... I knew Adrien Brody from summer camp. We learned magic together, not the spooky kind, but the ledger / performance, close up and stage illusions ;) Cards were prevalent in the film, and I wonder if he taught his co-stars a trick or two.

I still need to write about "Drag Me To Hell", by Sam Raimi, which I saw last week and also thoroughly enjoyed!
