Give it a buzz term, create new jargon full of bollocks to baffle everyone, and what is termed “social media” becomes just more clutter in the online world where good old-fashioned marketing and commonsense becomes a very shallow and opportunistic version like some ponzie scheme made up of promises of a phony second life. Likes, [...]

I’m like a dog with a bone when I truly believe in and what I TRULY believe in is that Apple provides a platform or a showcase for all the creative talent who have supported the brand and its products, created great work, but have nowhere to show it which will LEAD somewhere. Uploading this [...]

Twitter has slowly crept up on many almost like a wolf in sheep’s clothing and news of an I.P.O. for the social media tool being imminent, its real value as a marketing tool is something that should give the ad industry the jitters.

As those who know me will tell you, it’s something I ask- not out of cynicism, but just to understand where anything is leading to and what was or is the end game plan. So you write songs, but have no publishing deal and no one hears them. And now what? Your band has spent [...]
