I’ve been working on new features and design tweaks at CultureMob.com, but on the side, I’m getting ready to try out a test run on our CultureMob “Street Team” in Seattle. Pending how successful our test run is, what I want to do with it is open it up to CultureMob users to be able to go to shows, hand out flyers and talk us up, and we’ll subsidize a chunk of the ticket (No promises here, folks).
So, our first trial event: Super Sonic Soul Pimps @ the Nectar Fri 3.28.08. This is the band that, back in ’95, lead me down the path that I’m at today. They are a high energy funk-rock band, which attracted the 16-year-old in me, who happened to be 16-years-old at the time. Ahh, nostalgia. The web was young and I jumped on to do a site for them, under the pseudonym of Captain Fantasy. Now it’s 35 years later and I’m still doing this web thing.
And if you’re looking for a good event in Seattle, check out CultureMob.com. I’ve been messing with this project since it was just an idea 2 years ago. We’ve only been live for 3 months now and still are a little rough around the edges, so I’d LOVE to hear some feedback.
So come on down to the Nectar this Friday and say hi. We’ll make sure to buy you a cranberry juice.
For the past couple years, The New York Times Magazine has been running serialized comics by popular artists in their Funny Pages section. Last month, Daniel Clowes wrapped up his 20 pg. story on awkward mid-life romance, Mr. Wonderful.
The magazine has been releasing each page as an individual PDF, but I combined the 20 pages into a convenient single 18MB PDF. Grab it and have a read.
