MFT Radio Hour idea

so my buddy Simon Hanstad was over last night and he said "you should have a radio station on MFT that plays records all the time", excellent idea of course but where would we find the monkeys to play records 24/7 while we went about our lives?

we will also set up a little live chat… Continue

Best Band From Indiana

You might disagree, that's cool, but my vote goes for:

(edit) added to my list is Zero Boys & America Owns the Moon.

Tonight I'll be sending pictures from the Everthus The Deadbeats show in real time

watch the home page, I tested this functionality earlier. Anyone who has a phone that can send pictures via email can do it. Just go to your settings and see what your email address for sending pictures is then start sending! They will go directly to the site and be added to the front page. Very cool stuff!

Ok, I'm off to the show!
