“You don’t have to do it for the glory. You don’t have to do it to be famous. You don’t have to do it for the boys.” There isn’t, it turns out, a right way to do any of it at all. All you need—that’s right, you guessed it, kids—is to “Just Do It.

World-class 15 second insurance ad

German actor Til Schweiger with daughter Emma Schwaiger in a well executed 15 sec. tv ad. The title was coined by my protestant friend Markus from New York, which I thought would nicely fit the ad. If you paid attention, the clip starts with the girl banging the car door at a post without much harm to the car while the father gets the job done by paying no attention to traffic when opening his door.

A pointer to the lost infrastructure of social media

August 15th, 2016 Comments off

More than a decade ago, the earliest era of blogging provided a set of separate but related technologies that helped the nascent form thrive. Today, most have faded away and been forgotten, but new incarnations of these features could still be valuable.

 

 

lost infrastructure
As social networks grew in popularity and influence, the old decentralized blogosphere fell apart and those early services consolidated, leaving all the power in the hands of a few private companies. That’s left publishers and independent voices even more vulnerable to the control points of a few social networks and search engines.

Passion and purpose of indie music

 

Beyond its DIY approach and aim for a more independent approach to producing music, passion and purpose of indie music is to produce music of a quality that is not universally compatible with mainstream audiences.

 

Music of mass destruction quality

 

Today a highly commercial product sells a riskier set of sophisticated high quality to the mainstream audience than indie music can claim. It’s a lesson of the strong individual capable of collaboration and market a sophisticated package to a more capable mainstream audience. Music of mass destruction quality.

Now that the more experimental, progressed music is accepted and consumed by a broader mainstream audience, do we still need underground or indie music?
