Photo Shoot

This afternoon the band went through our first photo shoot. Thankfully a friend of the band did the pictures for free and we are hopeful we have some good shots. We spent about 2 hours at Stone Mountain park taking pictures on bridges, in the woods, in front of a grist mill and just out. I was sporting some new clothes that I didn't feel all that comfortable in, but the pants looked really cool.

We should have pictures from the shoot online and in our press kit within a week or so.

Something that was quite funny is all 8 of us, band, wives, and daughter in my case, all fit in Mike G's Suburban. Who knows maybe a year from now all 8 of us will be touring the southeast dragging a uhaul of all of our gear behind.

For those that don't know all Blogger users have been invited to participate in Google's recently announced GMail service. They provide 1Gig of email storage and offer a different paradigm for managing email. I'll report on the pros and cons over the next few weeks. The first thing I've noticed is there are no mail folders. You apply labels to messages and use search technology to locate messages / conversations.

The Wildhearts

A week ago Thursday I got to see The Darkness with The Wildhearts. These band names are making me thing having "The" in your band name isn't such a bad idea.

The opening band The Wildhearts was awesome. I picked up their most recent international release last weekend and after a few listens this a band with quite a bit to offer. Very metal, with a indie pop punk thrown in for good measure. Indie being the key word.

They have a new release out in the States in May so lets hope for some good things for these guys.

Microsoft's iPod killer? | CNET

Rentable downloads? Liquid Audio had done this years ago, and WMA has a license with expiration built in.

This is an interesting concept. Will people like to rent music. Quite likely. Prooves how disposable an art music really is in this day and age. I personally will still continue to purchase most of my music outright, but there are times when a rental would be useful for me.
