I did a talk at the Western New York State Drupal User Group's mini-camp in Ellicottville. It's partly about geolocation and partly about when to ignore contrib. There's also spherical trigonometry in it. Fun!

I've got to imagine that outside of Canada, or at least Ontario, the impact of this band is not readily apparent. If you go see any local show in some small Ontario town you can bet money on one of the young bands throwing out a Cons cover during their set, and the crowd completely losing their minds over it. There's a whole generation of bands, promoters and labels out there in Ontario that lived and breathed the Cons while they were around.

I'm beyond excited.
Not to completely tear down the thin veil of objectivity that we like to think we have here on Punknews, but my favourite band is reuniting and I'm really fucking excited. This is from a post by guitarist / vocalist Bry Webb on the Constantines' blog: ...A great irony in all of this, i.

"...somewhere along the way to modern movie appearances, the managers of the DC characters mistook complex for mirthless, and Marvel has managed to balance their history of multi-dimensional characters with a sense of fun onscreen"

I enjoy that this debate's showing up in a mainstream newspaper as opposed to some enthusiast message board.

When learning a new communications medium one must both understand how the tools work, and why they feel compelled to use them.

The former is a matter of skill, which can be refined through practice. The latter’s about motivation. It’s driven by emotion and the perception of value.

Unlike many of our tools, success with social media is almost entirely reliant on the latter.

Horribly late, so therefore one of two episodes to post this week, here's the latest Punknews.org podcast. On this outing John Gentile, Brittany Strummer and I come to the realization that everyone from bands we ignore out of thinly veiled ageism eventually ends up in jail, thus justifying our indifference.
So this episode is being posted horribly late. Fight me. On this outing of the Punknews Podcast, John Gentile, Brittany Strummer and Adam White chat about The Muffs joining Burger Records, the Tim Lambesis guilty plea, the 18 song demo collection that Green Day's about to inflict upon the wo.

This is likely coloured by my education and choice of career, but I find these discussions of cryptographic math incredibly fascinating.
