So, I heard about a couple cool sites today…I know, I know…SOOO yesterday.  What evs!  #JosephGordonLevitt’s collaborative production company site called HitRECord.org allows you to upload and share original material with other users on the site.  Once you upload a submission it becomes a “record”, permitting every user the right to use it or remix it in any fashion they like, as long as it’s for another record they are posting back on HitRECord.

If Mr. Gordon-Levitt and his team decides a record is worth the effort and pushes to turn it into a “production”, all of the contributing users have the chance to make a profit off of the work.  HitRECord splits its productions’ proficts 50/50 with its contributors, as it is a pro-profit organization.  They use a non-exclusive license structure.  So, you maintain the rights to your original works.

Cool concept.  I plan on trying it out myself and have already signed up!  For more info, go to www.hitrecord.org.

The other site I heard about today and have already taken the liberty of peepin’ out is Turntable.FM.  Basically, it allows you listen to blast playlists from anywhere around the world that are being produced by DJs or everyday Schmos like yourself.  In essence, you are the DJ for someone else’s get down moments.

This takes online music streaming to a whole new level.  Because, now, you are actually listening to music being put together by someone else using the music you like to hear….with flare!   Rather than simply allowing a program to put music together for you, you’re being interactive.  In fact, another awesome feature is you can actually rate the music the DJ is playing, forcing him to eventually change the song, or, giving her mad props yo!

This site is great for hearing new tunes or your beloved classics.  It’s also a perfect stage for aspiring disc jockeys to get their feet wet and feel out crowds.  Just be ready for the haters, because you know people are WAAAAY more brave sitting behind their firewalls!  And remember, your listeners have the power to change your picks in the end.

All in all, Turntable.FM is a really fun and creative site.  So much for hiring in-house DJs! …..well, I wouldn’t go that far.  😉   Go to www.turntable.fm for mas info.

Never ceases to amaze me the creative thinking going on out there on the web.  Hard to keep up with it all!  Impossible really.  But it’s fun to try.  Hay ohhhhh!!!!

About B

Hey everyone. If you wanna know, I reside in the place of sun, silicon and superficiality. Ahhhh, my home sweet home...how I love the! Sarcasm you smell??? Well...perhaps just a bit. But, truthfully, the West is where my heart is. The world itself is a wonderful place if you let it be. That's why I like to say I give my heart to the West, and my soul to the world. Call it what you will. Living to be the best person I can be is my goal in this life. That doesn't necessarily mean being the best though. It's my belief if you do your utmost personal best, giving whatever you go for your without-a-doubt all, and make smart decisions along the way, awesome things can happen and you'll achieve what you set out to do. There can be no excuses. There can be no giving up. You must use your opportunities and develop the natural abilities you've been blessed with. And, in the end, if you stay focused, you will find your happiness. Competitiveness is great. It drives us. But we can't let it cloud our vision, dirty our good nature. Eh, take it for what you will. This is just what I've come to live by through personal experience. We are all different. Find what works for you. All in all, I hope I can provoke some sort of thought through my work, as well as provide some sort of emotion. Not every person will like it, nor will every person appreciate it. But I'm okay with that. No ego or pride here....well, okay, as little as possible at least. :) Through my art, I give my all to the world. And that's the best I can do. Thanks for your time.
