i put the music later and start instead with a suggestion on how to survive the knowledge/media/madia avalanche that we often find ourselves buried under. from what i gather and judging from personal experience, there are more interesting news and articles on the internet than there is on tv.
so, for those who like to account somehow to justify that time spent online, some may want to have a neat way to document the interesting articles, images, vids, stories, etc.trove.com has a user friendly system of keeping your bookmarks and passing fancies in some semblance of order. using their browser plug-in, you can pick a webpage and keep it in one of your troves (folders). to start a trove, you have to search a few keywords related to your newly named trove, and find 2 existing troves that may overlap your interest. once you pick the page to add it, you have to give a short description (comment). you can search the onsite trove pick-a-dilly universe and find troves you like and follow them, and they are added below your list of personal troves.
diigo,which is another well-established bookmark sharing tool
it also has a browser plugin, and has more features such as highlight, capture, filter, etc., but trove is better laid out.
my new set of troves is under the name integral and you can check out my trundle of troves here.
paul mccartney has a new music vid out. the song is called early days.
i'm going to embed it here, but you to take a spin over to rolling stone for their informative full write-up on the song and vid.
summary: almost sounds like several 12 string guitars, but from the photo it looks like there was a roomful of 6-string plunkers. it is a mellow song, full of acoustic clarity and some vocal harmonizing. the song harkens back to the late '50s or early '60s, of young people jammin' with their musical friends, when life was slower but still grounded in the delights of homemade music.
"they can't take it from me if they tried.. 'cause i lived through those early days... so many times i had to change the pain to laughter / just to keep from getting crazy ..."
