Largest City’s

A friend of mine said something kind of stupid the other day, and I wanted to call him on it but I didn’t. Instead I looked it up on the web and now I’m telling you about it.

Largest City in the World?

I would have said Mexico City, just off some random fact I heard a few years ago. The friend I was talking about said that New York is the largest city. (I laughed when I heard those ignorant american words come out of his mouth) Nope, sorry,,, according to some random website New York is #11 8,008,278 and Mexico City is #8 8,235,744.

2 New Themes

In the last two weeks I busted some serious typing and completed to projects. Outdoor Encounter and Daniel Renstrom…

Outdoor Encounter

gravatar.jpgI’m kinda excited to see this take off. I really think that they have something worth doing and I’m glad to be apart of it. Rebecca and Ben Wynd have put a lot of effort into getting things started so if you would be so kind as to give them a welcome to the web and the blogging world that would be fantastic.

Daniel Renstrom

title-50-blank.pngI’m sure most of you have been around and seen or read about Daniel. If not you should go and check him out, in fact he has a free song on his site if you go back in his post about a week or two. I had a hard time with his theme, but we made some executive decisions and ran with it. Keep your eye on this guy because I think he’s going to do some amazing things in the future.

Cliché Christian Words and Frases

I heard a few words today that made me chuckle a little, only because it’s been years and years since I’d heard them used semi seriously.

The two that I heard were “Backslide” and “Stumble”… I don’t think I’ve heard those since high school chapel in the the gym.

Are their any Christian Cliché’s that make you chuckle when you hear them?
Im not trying to discredit these words true meaning, but the fact that their Cliché makes them funny

Missing Keys?

I went to a really good meeting this morning with some folks over at Buzz Plant. I really liked the vibe I got from them, they seem really relaxed yet on top of their stuff. (Which is really refreshing to see.)

We talked about some really interesting things concerning Databases and Flash, SEO and some guys in white hats and oh yeah, some blog stuff too. So yes, I left that meeting with a huge smile on and few new concepts to chew on. But as I got closer to my sweet ride I realized that I didn’t have my keys.

missing-scoot-keys.jpgIf I was at home I would have walked strait back into the house to get them, but I wasn’t at home. The first thing I thought was, “There in the freaking ignition”… Sure enough, there they were just sitting there waiting for someone to stroll along and take it out for a spin. (thank goodness Franklin isn’t a bad town)

Speak or Not to Speak

tennessee-no-ocean.jpgToday Brody and I drove to Memphis to have a meeting where we said our little speal and in the end everyone was the same page. Although we had our moments… Or should I say, I had my moments.

There are many times where I find myself trying to explain how websites interact and how search engines do what they do and how it is that we do what we do without actually saying words like database and code and html… I don’t like saying things that sound smart, but after today I realize it might be better to first make sense.

I’m not entirely sure how these things happen, but some how in the midst of our conversation I couldn’t help but talked about Tennessee falling into the ocean, a live broadcast of my closet and egg guts getting all over the place. I think in the future I might just stick to the magical card of the web, and say things like code and html, databases and php…

Even Spamers Understand the Power Links

Even my spam emails understand that a link is worth an exchange. Depending on who you’re exchanging links with it might be fair to say that you’re giving them a dollar and their giving you a $50. or vise versa So why is it then that people spend thousands of dollars for a static website that never changes or even attempts to have a link exchange.

It’s all about who you are affiliated with. If you want to bring it back to the Music Industry, the decision to have no affiliate links (blogroll) will most likely point back the musician or manager being worried about the affiliations. Honestly if you are actively involved in your career than you not going to be worried about the affiliations because your going to take the time to look at the links before you approve them. And if you’re not willing to be affiliated with your fans than who are you affiliated with? Your Label?

spam.jpgThanks David Stern, but this is as much of a link exchange as you’re going to get… Although now that I’ve mentioned your name in my tags and so-forth people will find you, but unfortunately they may not find your website. They may be brought here to see how you spammed me. Luckily I haven’t said anything mean, and your website is actually legit.
and yet i’m still not linking to you…
