So when a question is asked of a person "should we have done something differently" it is only an IF question to set that person up.
No one has true foresight to understand the complete intricacies of a future that is blind to us. We can only do what we do and make the decisions we can make with the best knowledge that history can impart upon us. If is for fools with agendas.
Are you ready? I am!!!
I put some online consolidation into effect today. I retired 2 of my 3 blogs and 1 of my 2 Twitter handles.
The only blog that I will be updating is here: http://www.jasonfalter.ninja/
And the only Twitter handle I will be keeping is @JasonFalter
The reason being is that I really want more focus for what I do online over having things scattered everywhere that I update rarely, don't update at all, or that just no longer make any sense for keeping around. And it's just simpler. I like that.
Natali actually understands the book and wanted to be faithful to it... losing him makes this a movie on shaky ground going forward. If the next director wants to make huge changes then the story is really going to suffer. This isn't a story that can just be "changed" or have parts left out.

I used to walk to school, up a hill both ways!!!
Okay, some people will latch on to smart watches but I don't think it will break the mainstream general public until it can function without being paired to a phone. I just don't see it. I could be wrong though because it does seem like notification addiction is spreading.
we'll have to find you a sponsor to help you through this until your 360 is fixed. Notification Anonymous meetings and the whole thing. Just breath easy, deep breaths, and try and relax. Think to yourself, "I am more than just defined by my notifications". You'll make it through. You can do it!!!
READ the Contract!!!! This information in the music industry (or anywhere) has never changed. If you don't specify your rights in a contract, then the labels ripped you off but basically... you let them.
I don't feel sorry for any artist that this happens too.
