Interested in checking out some new music? EP1, the debut record from my band, +Ars Nova, is now available pretty much everywhere digital music is sold!

You can get it for less than three bucks at:
Google Play:
Amazon MP3:
If you use a different digital music service than these, just search it for Ars Nova EP1, and you'll most likely find it there as well!

You can also take a listen over at Spotify:

Take it from music connoisseur +Linda Hefferman of +SchoolofRockUSA: "Current and classic, at the same time. I absolutely love this EP, and have not stopped listening to it since downloading. Each of the songs is complicated, yet simple. Intricately layered, yet perfectly stripped down. The dynamics, timing, harmonies and restraint remind me of music that hasn't been made in many years, yet sounds exactly like a product of now. I absolutely love this album, and will listen to it over and over and over."

And be sure to let us know what you think. We're always listening, and would be glad to discuss it with you or answer any questions you might have!

I don't think this statement by Tony Seba is controversial at all. I think, if anything, he's playing it safe a bit. My prediction for when self-driving electric cars will become mainstream is more like 2022-2025.

What do you guys and gals think?
By 2030, cars will be self-driving, electric
Do you agree?

Tony Seba, Vice-Chairman of Everblaze and lecturer on Cleantech and disruptive tech at Stanford, is supposedly controversial for saying self-driving, electric cars will be mainstream by 2030.

Setting the record straight on the (extremely misleading) widely circulated AP story by Justin Pritchard about accidents caused by self-driving cars.
Pop quiz, who do you trust on the road more: a 17-year-old or a robot?

I've seen my fair share of Auto Awesome fails, but more often than not - as in this case - I find myself quite pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for all of the awesome (auto and otherwise) you bring to the world, +Google+ team!

Auto-awesome FTW once again!

Was a fantastic day, weather-wise, here in the Grand Rapids, MI area, and a great day for a stroll. During said stroll, I stopped to take a quick pic of this dandelion, which Auto-awesome then proceeded to make, well, awesome!

Happy Spring 2015, G+ friends!

Love these illuminated glass panels at the Shang Hai Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse here in the southeast corner of Grand Rapids. 

Food's not too bad, either!

Touch the Sky

Spent the evening in downtown GR, as I am prone to do when I get the chance. Got some Ingressing in, snapped a few #handsfree  pics #throughglass , even ended up mingling with some local lawyer-types in the midst of a series of rather hilarious events. All in all, a fantastic time! 

Hope everyone out there in the land of Plus had an equally excellent evening!

Another #throughglass  shot I snapped while in downtown Grand Rapids earlier.

This is a statue of Arthur Vandenberg, a local Senator who participated in the creation of the United Nations.

Happy Thursday, all!
