Facebook has a new Terms of Service agreement that gives them full rights to any content you post there forever. Seems like a total rip to me. Be interesting to see how this shakes out as I can't believe they'll find a way to defend this stance for very long. Currently, my blog is re-published … Continue reading Facebook, More Like Thiefbook
Back to the music from Ships and Dip V -- lest you think it was all distorted electic guitar-based rock, here's some quirky music from Christine Fellows. I found I really liked her music because, in an odd fit of synaesthesia, I find it very visual. Like listening to it makes me see a movie … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Christine Fellows

During the panel, a group of artists talk about their music and get to perform it acoustic-like. Sometimes you … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies Sings A New Song

It's a floating musical festival, featuring BnL and … Continue reading Ships and Dip V Totally RAWKED!!!
