Since I started Daytrotter in 2006, it’s always been my goal to do as much to promote and expose great music/bands to as many people as we possibly could – helping them sell records, get people out to shows and just generally surviving as artists. We have tens of thousands of people on the site daily and an email list that goes out to over 300,000 people every day. Now we’re going to give bands the opportunity to benefit financially – forever – when they tape a Daytrotter session.
After 6 months of work, Philadelphia alternative rock band Kick Back Tomorrow has launched an online campaign to fund the last step of their debut EP. With the help of the IndieGoGo.com community, the world’s largest self-serve open-funding platform, Kick Back Tomorrow is utilizing this crowd-funding platform to raise money.
After giving Hollywood the idea for the next Back to the Future movie, I had full intentions on writing my next piece on how time travel is possible and will be available in the future. Then I sat down and thought “That’s too scientific… at least for this week. But time travel is awesome; what are the top 5 things I would do if I was given the opportunity.” My next thought was “I think I’m watching too much Doctor Who.” Regardless, here it is… the top 5 things to do with time travel!
As I was driving around today I noticed that there were kids everywhere…running all over the place and getting in my way while I was trying to drive. That only means one thing…school is out for the summer. A few weeks ago I provided a guide for seniors going to the prom. Now, Ill provide a guide to get ready for college. Next week look for my guide for the first year of college. So this guide will tell you what to do your summer before college…enjoy!
In the interest of proving I can write something that’s a little bit more thought provoking and a little less controversial, I’ve decided to write about something everyone seems to have. We’re all human and make mistakes; realizing weeks, months, or even years later that our lives could be completely different if we hadn’t made said mistakes. You’d be kidding yourself if you said there wasn’t anything you wish you could do differently in your life; I don’t care who are. Even Bill Gates, who would think has everything (and probably does), has regrets I’m sure.
Had I never dropped out of school, where would I be right now? Probably have a slamming job in the world of IT and the only debt I would have is years of schooling. If I saved the money I was making from a $50,000/year job instead of drinking it all away, I wouldn’t have had such a hard time when I got laid off from that dream gig, nor would I be worrying about living paycheck to paycheck. If I went to Phoenix that one year, I would have witnessed my childhood hero’s final wrestling match LIVE (okay… this one may not be a regret, but how awesome would it have been to say I was there when good ol’ HBK said goodbye)!
I’m sure everyone reading this knows the site Wikipedia. Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit content too. When I say anyone, I really mean it…if you’re like me you have changed information about something on some page. Did you know that a frog listens to The Stabcast every Saturday? It says so on Wikipedia. In fact that is why a lot of schools do not accept the site as a reference anymore. Anyone can type anything and say it’s true. But enough about that…that is not my problem with the site as of right now. My problem is that every time I go to the site they have a big banner at the top of the page telling me to donate money in order to keep the site free. What this this all about?
