A Byproduct of the MBA

As my 52 week intensive MBA is winding down, I've come to realize something.  Due to the amount of reading and analysis done during this MBA, I can no longer read something without really thinking about what I'm reading, and why I'm reading it.

I'm having trouble reading for "fun".....other than Sh*t my dad says, because that's just pure fun :)

I think I've read more in 52 weeks than I have in my life-time.  I guess that's a good thing.

Radio Sucks

I decided to tune into the radio today, and I heard the following songs on repeat

Fireflies - Owl Lights
Dynamite - Taio Cruz
California Gurls - Katie Perry
I Like It - Enrique Iglesias
Cooler Than Me - Mike Posner
What Part of Forever - Cee Lo Green

OMG!  I wanted to stab my ears.  Is it because there isn't enough good music around that everything is just put on repeat?  Martin's response is "It's the Top 40, they're just going to play the Top 40".  Who came up with top 40?  I really thought it was just a label and it didn't mean repeat the top 40 sounds until you want to jab sharp objects in your ears.

And it all sounds the'm not listening to the radio anymore.

Free Concerts Via YouTube


What better way for an artist to reach out to their fans than have a concert that is also broadcasted over YouTube.

Tonight:  Arcade Fire Live from Madison Square Garden ( @ 10PM EST

U2 did this and received 10 million streams on a Sunday night.  I was just thinking how YouTube quietly changed how people view the news, music videos, and learn.  This is another one of those "wow that's a cool idea" moments that can change the way things happen, IMO anyways.

I know where I'll be tonight @ 10pm :)

No Shipping to Canada

Well isn't that the story of our live sometimes?  Well, Steph reminded me that Martin and I found this site,

We haven't used it yet, but it looks pretty simple and cheap.

If you use it, let me know how it is.
