Social Media and Selling Records

It seems Radiohead has opened a can of worms but in a good way. Other artists are now getting on board with it.

Niggytardust followed the Radiohead approach of donations for the album.

REM is doing similar but with a social networking spin. You have to go to Facebook and use the iLike plugin to download their new album for free.

I think this is an amazing feat. Artists are starting to meet the fans where they live. I hope this is just the start of the new wave of things to come. Keep it coming.

Social Networking Home Edition

We are all so gung ho on growning our networks in business, with friends, but what about your home social network. Especially that with your spouse. Communication with your spose especially in the bedroom is something a lot of people struggle with. That is why I am recommending an 8 part web tv show called "How to make love to your wife" Here is the show synopsis I ripped from their website:

Join us every week as our trusty (and brave) host, Greg, seeks various
solutions to spice up his humdrum sex life in this daring new reality web
series. And his (brave) wife Kathy gets to test out all his new moves and
let us
know what she thinks.

I have watched the first clip and its both funny and informative. Be sure to watch every week at
