We’ll show you what your Blockbuster became, and explore the the retail spaces that remain. A bit of nostalgic naval gazing I’m proud to have helped put together.
This is a behemoth of a playlist I put together, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on the alt/indie/college side of the 90's experience. It's 800+ tracks, about 55 hours, and features plenty of songs that tend to get overlooked in the "remember these 90's hits?" pieces that pop up from time to time. Not definitive by any means, and extremely subjective, but it's a decent chunk of curated history in one convenient place. Also it's a fully chronological playlist, on a week-by-week level. So a track released on May 7, 1994 will come before a track released on May 14, 1994. Time and research went into this. Think of it as the Boyhood of 90's playlists!
Otto is an open source music jukebox app that disguises itself as an iTunes replacement without all the extra baggage, but is actually a web-first, fully streaming, anti-cloud, social music server that allows multiple people to listen to the same stream of music at the same time and DJ for each other. Kinda like a private turntable.fm. For Mac OSX and Linux. A limited demo loaded with some CC licensed music can be found here. [more inside]
I put together a site to broadcast curated music videos. Like my parents tell me MTV used to. [more inside]
Royalton Community Radio (RCR) is an independent, community-based, all volunteer, non-profit station — based in South Royalton, Vermont — which intends to educate and entertain our audience with diverse, thought provoking local programming that has been neglected or under-represented by other media. In particular, RCR's programming reflects the values of environmental/agricultural sustainability, freedom of expression, grassroots democracy and the uniqueness of our creative, cultural community.

After discovering two amazing college radio stations in my proximity (KZSU - Stanford and KFJC - Foothills College), I began listening not only from my car but wherever I had a high speed internet connection. Thus I began a mission to identify all similarly awesome stations in the USA/Canada. The result is 77 high-quality streaming commercial-free radio stations that you can load into a convenient playlist. Surely this beats the repetitive, commercial music discovery sites out there. It has been an extremely rewarding project for me, and I hope you enjoy it too! [more inside]
