There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.
• We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence.
• Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!"
• In the first case we have given the public fifteen seconds of surprise at the moment of the explosion. In the second we have provided them with fifteen minutes of suspense. The conclusion is that whenever possible the public must be informed. Except when the surprise is a twist, that is, when the unexpected ending is, in itself, the highlight of the story.”

As a marketing noob I turn to most of the time.
Today I tuned to their podcast on 5 Tips for Affiliate Marketing Beginners. Great listen.
Check it out: http://www.copyblogger.com/affiliate-marketing-beginner/
I learned, again, authenticity and being personal always sells.
Here are the resources you and I definitely need to check out:
► Internet Marketing for Smart People (Free) | http://www.copyblogger.com/imfsp/
► Traffic & Trust In To Sales ($97) By ( approved) | http://trafficandtrust.com/

Just printed the the first resource. That will keep me busy.
Anything you recommend?
There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?
This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com
It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear?
That’s why I have invited Chris Brogan to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business.
Chris is the Author of "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link)
Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are:
⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing?
⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today?
⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story?

No motive or story behind it. As I learn the process of music-making with #logicprox , I get inspired to come up with ANYTHING.
I'm really honing down midi-editing but it will take a while to master it. In the near future, I definitely need to pick up a course on mixing better. But for the moment, I show what I got. It can only get better I say.

thanks to . I picked up some stuff from your tutorials.
Does this exist? I currently have Google Comments in my blog, but when I post a video -- I would prefer to cancel that option for the post and embed the video's comment thread. Can this be done?
“As a storyteller, you are a servant of your story, not the master. You must do what it requires, not what you want to do. You must remove your ego from it. Art is not to show people who you are; it is to show people who they are.” - Brian McDonald
The audience will not tune in to watch information. You wouldn't, I wouldn't. No one would or will. The audience will only tune in and stay tuned in to watch drama. David Mamet
A great article that superficially observes the difference between information vs story.

We all understand the limits information. It just can't reach the heart! But story, on the other hand, can.
This world is far too noisy to care about your mediocre information (as if it ever did).
