(no subject)

Time to share a nifty. I came across this music site that sells DRM free mp3. That alone is not that unique but how this one does it is well different. Aimie Street offers any music put up for free. Yes it is free. The catch is as a song becomes more and more popular then they begin charging for it. Basically a track can range from free for those tunes no one knows about or listens to often to .98 cents which is the most they will charge for anything. This site makes it easier for lesser known bands to get known. It also interestingly enough was a site where the Bare Naked Ladies released their latest album.

I think folks may like the site so I thought I would share before i crashed.

story from wordlab that amused me

Calvin Klein Perfume for Technosexuals

CK IN2U, the new fragrance by Calvin Klein, bottles the scent of the blogging generation.
Last year, the company went so far as to trademark “technosexual,” anticipating it could become a buzzword for marketing to millennials, the roughly 80 million Americans born from 1982 to 1995. A typical line from the press materials for CK in2u goes like this: “She likes how he blogs, her texts turn him on. It’s intense. For right now.”

Which may turn off its intended audience by the tens of thousands.
Valleywag has mocked up a different ad for the new scent with Ben and Mena Trott, founders of Six Apart and makers of the Movable Type blog software, imagined as Calvin Klein models.
