Bleet # 3 - Music You May Not Have Heard

Cashier No.9

When Jackie Shone

Still under the radar, lads who probably think we are all wankers, oh... and about to explode. Yes Cashier No.9 is more than a catchy phrase and/or tune, they are working their way to the US by force. They have released When Jackie Shone as a 7" on 04/13 but good luck finding it. Once they get a label we will be hearing more from them, count on it.

Good Article on Cashier No.9

Another Great Song


Fresh Blood

If the only reason you watched Jesse Dylan's video was to get to know the senorita featured, I do not blame you one bit. But you would have missed the point was rather to inform you - Eels have done it yet again, with Hombre Lobo, set for US release on June 02. And I for one can't wait... to show the senorita my little friend! Alright, I am sorry.

Woulda..., Coulda..., Shoulda..., Procrastination Sucks!

Whether it's the snooze button innocently allowing us an additional ten more minutes of sleep, or if it is the three seconds you had as a warning before a lightning strike, procrastination can be a real drag.

Let me share with you my recent little story involving procrastination. One that is true, not made up. One that is not meant to suggest go run out and gamble your life savings on a tip. But my story none the less. We all know that Mine That Bird won the Kentucky Derby recently. 50 to 1 was the payout I believe. Ok yea, anybody can say afterward they were gonna bet on that horse. But I really was, if for no other reason than to slap Mr. Destiny smack dab in it's face. I knew going in to the race that the horse could have no legs, and I would still have a half burnt cigarette I found on the racing floor just dangling from my lips, as I uttered these beautiful words "to win" to the cashier.

Enough with the imagery, so what happened? Well as most of us do, I got busy doing something else. It was the day of the race around 5pm, and my eye witness as it were, just mentioned in passing to me, this terrible event that undoubtedly will replay in my head over the next few days..., Say Dave did you hear that the long shot won the Derby? No, I quiveringly express myself to my eye witness, you don't ssaaaayyyyy......? Just like in the movies when everything creeps to a screeching slow motion halt.
Yes..., it hit me like a ton of bricks. What an idiot! I was going to make that bet. At that very moment I think I threw something through a window, but my point here is, it is easy to make mistakes. And procrastination can really aid a bad decision too. Whether just a whimsical bet, or an important new beta launch. Whatever it is, when poop happens, make poop-aid. Well you know what I mean.

Now I am not trying to come off as the motivational speaker here. But too often I find myself quick to jump on the old procrastination wagon, when I should just calmly think through the benefits of reward vs. challenge. Sound familiar? Don't feel bad as I am guessing we are among the majority. Fortunately... if it is learned, it can be unlearned.

But wait it gets better. The icing on the cake to this little drama, was the little extra nudge I received from my friend Mr. Destiny, just before he laughed and left me alone to wallow in my own tears. The horses name was Mine that Bird, yes Bird which coincidentally links to my (and the million other people using this as well) other favorite subject right now, that being Twitter, but I will leave this little nugget for the cynics to debate, as I have probably vented enough for one day.

Twitterers' Anonymous

My name is David, and I am addicted to Twitter. This is where you say Hi Dave! Big deal.., we all use Twitter. Or maybe you are too cool to use Twitter, or maybe you have been kidnapped by elf warriors on a far off island without Wi-Fi, but I digress.

Seriously though, I have been loving, looking, loafing, looming, laughing, learning, listening, linking, loathing, yes loathing. Alright enough with the l's, where is this going? Are you gonna show me a pie chart or what? Simmer down, I will get to a point soon, I promise.

I am noticing in my own little Twitterverse, especially with the massive growth reports recently posted by Twitter, that this social media consortium would just become another chore or task. I was wrong. I have thousands of followers, and I am usually lucky if one responds. Yes one or two. I know what you are thinking, this guy is a little boring. Well before I lose another reader, let me build myself up a little bit by saying that while I have not cured cancer, I am also not under 2k followers and/or without an avatar.

Still waiting on my point. Well I guess I have three basic points to this article. My first point is, Twitter is here to stay. So before you write "Twitter: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow" know that you will be wrong. Secondly, I also know that cracking the selling on twitter code without spamming is probably the "Holy Grail" to us all. Everyone is selling something. Maybe it's just a toaster, or maybe it's someone's dream, but we are all selling something. And lastly, Twitter is open to change in a big way. What do I mean? Well with all the fail whales, 3rd party apps that are really stupid or don't work at all, and with the future being so technology driven, Twitter will buy Google before Google buys Twitter. Yes I said it here first, and it is on the record.

While this is just my opinion, and I am by no means an esteemed Professor of Harvard, I have however been studying and watching closely to see how I can maneuver in the mix. Hey that is good, I may use that later. Anyway, keep your eyes and ears peeled. Because it will probably happen when we least expect it. I would imagine most think this radical shift will be when Twitter quits with the kiddie monetization model, and really sells out. Please something more noteworthy than an Oprah Special. I for one hope it is when a kid named Jimmy420 out of Ames, Iowa shares his homework with someone in a 3rd world country who then proves scientifically that cancer cells can be killed with squirrel saliva.

Either way, I think we can all say it has been an interesting roll out. I just hope it moves beyond the cliques, as satirized in this video, and really becomes the unbelievable tool it really was meant to become. I for one am not going to be joining the recent ranks of the 1 Month Twitter Quitter Club, and don't see me joining any time soon.

You Think Free Marketing Does Not Exist!

I beg to differ... Recently I have been investigating "Bear Marketing System", and it achieves what it promises and surprisingly even more. And for all the doubters, try it without spending one dime, yes you heard me, not one dime.

This is a FREE system that gives everyone the ability to promote all of the best affiliate programs available online with a single web address. Simply by inviting people into the FREE system, you are promoting some, or all of the programs at the same time! In other words, when someone joins you in the system, every account that they create will have you as the sponsor automatically, which will cause you to make money from multiple companies simultaneously. Now everyone can earn hundreds of dollars PER referral from the Internets' HOTTEST programs of 2009. BMS has hand-picked the lowest costing and highest paying programs only, with NO obligation to sign up for them all. Take a look at this free video!
