There has been some discussion (1, 2) about my comments in my 2006 resolutions. When I said that rants about the music industry are depressing and exhausting to me, that’s all I meant. I’m not saying everyone should shut up or that there’s nothing to complain about, just that I personally find it hard to read these days.

As a shaky musician analogy, it’s kind of like watching your parents fight. Fans are your mom, looking out for your emotional well-being, trying to keep you from getting hurt, and the music industry is your dad, telling you to straighten up, quit your bitching and get a job. I’m sure both sides have great points and both mean well, but I’d rather not be in the house while it’s going down.

emergencypodcast.jpgI like being in press releases. Podcast Network Releases Indie Album by Brad Sucks:

TAMPA, Fla., April 18 /PRNewswire/ — Release of the indie album, “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing” by Brad Sucks, marks the debut of Slo-Monkey, the music label behind the Emergency Podcast System (http://www.emergencypodcastsystem.com). The quirky, witty album’s release is backed by a TV campaign on Former Vice President Al Gore’s cable network, Current TV. Current TV serves over 20 million households nationwide and has an energetic youth audience.

Smart lyrics and danceable tunes made indie band Brad Sucks an obvious choice for the Slo-Monkey label. Says music contract guy Lil’ Dawgg, “If we find ourselves singing the tunes around the office, we know we have a winner.”

Here’s the ad that’ll be (or is) running (.MOV). If you see it on TV, let me know. I like the idea that the girl in the video might have been paid to dance to my music.

Anyway they seem like nice dudes over there. It’s a non-exclusive deal and it’ll be interesting to see what happens.

mole.jpgI got a sexy Moleskine notebook for Christmas. It’s very nice and it’s the sort of thing I would never buy for myself but was curious about, so it was an excellent gift.

So far I’ve learned that none of my thoughts or feelings are fancy enough to be written in such a nice notebook. “Would Hemingway or Picasso have written that in their Moleskines, Brad? Honestly.” It’s still blank and I’m trying to work up the balls to wreck it with language.

Months ago I made up this quick site called junklog to track my reading habits. I had been rolling through a lot of books and wanted a simple del.icio.us style tool to let me log and rate them and nothing I tried did what I wanted. I’ve decided to open it up and see if it’s useful to anyone but me. Still pretty rough around the edges but I’ve been using it for a few months and it seems to work. It has tagging, rss feeds, uses the amazon.com database, lets you log books, music and dvds, etc.

You can check out my logged items here. And here’s where I test posting my last 5 read books to my blog:
