So, I have a Twitter account. Nothing special there… everybody has one these days.  I’ve had it for a while, but lately all I use it for is “following” what other people are doing – drummers, musicians generally, news stuff, theology stuff… whatever. But, it turns out I can link it to this blog (look left right now on the blog template), so I think I’ll start posting more often show it shows up here. I’d love to hear more regularly what everyone who reads listens to, so this is the open invite to post comments about you’re listening.  I’m not sure what that looks like since you can’t post comments on the Twitter feed, but I’m just saying.  Everybody look for ways to fill me in on stuff that you’re listening to.

PS. I realize I haven’t been posting as often as I normally do, but my wife is about to give birth to our second child any day now, so that’s why the blog is less of a priority.  I’ll get some pictures up here when the baby arrives.


The guys at the Risen Drums shop are now on Twitter.  The account was born earlier today, and this video was “tweet” number two.  If you’re a Twitter user like I am, you’ll want to follow the RD page… asap.

The other day I came across a website called New Music Strategies. It’s a site devoted to successfully participating in and accurately analyzing the new and rapidly evolving music industry in the digital/internet age. Lots of great stuff on here to help freelance musicians adapt to the ever-changing playing field of professional music.  The article that initially caught my interest was an interview with Steve Lawson about the commercial value of Twitter for musicians.   I have a Twitter profile, and I admit I don’t fully understand the potential of it, but Lawson’s insights have certainly helped in that regard.  If anybody else has other helpful hints or suggestions about how to get the most out of the Twitter world, hit me up.

In other news…

My friends at the Food For The Beloved blog just posted a great interview with James Diers, the lead singer for Love-cars and Halloween, Alaska.
