Introduction
PJ started building online services in 5th grade. As a freshman at University of Florida, he had already coded a web reporting system for IBM in Boca Raton. After graduating from the College of Fine Arts, he coded user-engagement algorithms, analytics dashboards, web crawlers and other tools using Java, Perl and PHP. He started blogging with WordPress in 2004 and was soon ranked #1 in Google for “Myspace Tracking” and “Facebook Tracking”. While studying Magazine Article Writing in San Antonio, he wrote a WordPress plugin to uncover social media trends, launching his blog to 12 million pageviews. PJ is passionate about publishing and is a Google Adsense Publisher and YouTube Partner.

Art Description Painting: Acrylic, Marker, mixedmedia, WIRED magazine and Pastel on Paper and Other. Read "Non-objective Abstract 1" first. I decided to go a little smaller this time for #2--a standard 4" x 4" because I know you like those standard size frames ;-) The edges are interesting too, so you could float this and get creative with the framing. Here's a quick little story. I was leaving the library and somebody had donated their ent...

Finally installed Android Lollipop, because I want to try the screen recording feature! The upgrade wasn't as bad as other upgrades, most of my settings were preserved this time. BUT my BLU Studio X Plus phone wouldn't boot after the upgrade--had to remove the battery, then everything was fine. Without a removable battery, I'd have a bricked phone.

I tried some other apps. Basically, it doesn't work. Seems like the problem is related to reconciling the phone's true resolution with the virtual resolution.

Mixed-media abstract collage on black paper. The initial inspiration was not a place, but an observation about figures in space. I have been drawing/painting (invented) abstract landscapes since the 90s. I don't have an exact formula, it's more a vocabulary that builds around an initial movement. This is 4 inches square again. Small enough that you could trade it like a rare baseball card.

I'm back on Saatchi.
Art Description Painting: mixed media, Marker, Paint, Pencil and chinamarker on Paper and Other. This is #1 of a new abstract mixed-media series. This first one is relatively thick compared to #2, made from cut up postcards, chinamarker, pencil & tape on sparkly matboard. My process is very unique and you won't find anything like this, anywhere. Much of my work is mixed-media with lots of texture. I often incorporate chinamarker in my work,...

LYRICS:
I got that online hustle.
All American, David O. Russell.
Brain, I work that muscle.
Sprout, you know that Brussell.
Imma bring the fight all day and night,
I’m Hungry for the tussle.
(What?)

I’m on the road to success.
Everyday, don’t even have to get dressed.
I work from home, I’m...I’m never stressed.
Logging into wordpress,
Yes, I’m obsessed.

I’m so fine, got talent coming out my spine.
I’m on time, got a meeting with my mastermind.
I’m number one on Google, nobody can off me.
I’m smoother than the butter in my bulletproof coffee.

[HASHTAG HUSTLE CHORUS]

My copy’s mad tight, so you know it’s magnetic.
I check my paypal account, so I know that you read it.
I code my website myself, so it’s got that aesthetic.
Download my podcast, so I know that I said it.

I’m building habits and I can’t stop.
These blog posts is my cash crop.
Search rankings, got top spot.
Just Skype me and we’ll talk shop.

(breathe)

If ya need another minute to look.
I’ll save you some time just download my ebook

-----

My hustle’s superbad. I’m McLovin’ it.
I call an Uber ride, some productive shit.
Everything I can, you know I’m crushing it.
I’ll write a thousand words and then I hit submit.

You know I ain’t got nothing to prove,
I got nothing to lose besides traffic and some pageviews.
I got stacks on stacks of lifehacks,
pay quarterly tax, ain’t no time to relax, I gotta...

[HASHTAG HUSTLE CHORUS]

When I bring my laptop on the plane…
that’s a write off.
When I buy another stupid domain…
that’s a write off.
When gas up my online gravy train...
that’s write off.
Even though you know my startup is lean…
it’s still a write off.

------

Ugh, you’re so dramatic.
Yea, my life’s nomadic.
And I know just what you were thinking and you’re wishing that you had it.

No, my site ain’t static.
Yea, it’s automatic.
I need my hustle fix, cause I’m a hustle addict.

My Four Hour Body don’t sleep.
I’m unique and I only work Four Hour Work Week.

My Four Hour Body don’t sleep.
I’m unique and I only work Four Hour Work Week.

How to combine two large "MTS" video files (Sony AVCHD format) in Linux, using ffmpeg. I plan to use my camera's MP4 option in the future, but I may need this at some point in the future:

cat 00001.MTS 00002.MTS > Part2.MTS
ffmpeg -i Part2.MTS -async 1 -r 24 Part2.webm

The resulting .webm file is much smaller, but the same resolution. So a 3Gig MTS file might shink to a more manageable 30MB webm.
