I've been thinking about this a lot recently. I'm pretty burned out on this platform (www.ning.com) for the MFT community. I've been thinking that a simplified blog format might actually be more effective than this online community platform. Let's face it, Facebook and Twitter have won.

I see a great Indiana… Continue

I know that's a pretty ballsy statement, which is why I ended it with a question mark. I'd love to hear what people think about Oranje, because everyone truly has a different impression of the event. There are quite a few definitions of the word progressive, but it generally means "pushing the boundaries" for the purposes of critiquing and judging art and culture.… Continue

When I first landed in Muncie some 8 years ago there was a mighty band everyone looked up to. This band was...
BRAZIL - http://musicalfamilytree.com/band/brazil
Dudes were breaking big at the time in the all ages "post-rock" scene and truly inspiring gentlemen for us young and inexperienced scenesters. It's hard to comprehend how a band actually turns into a business,… Continue

There has been a lot of great conversation on the site on how to handle political content. At first, when the site was flooded with political blogs, there was a reaction by myself and others to get a little freaked out. Suddenly this little music community was turning into a political site, oh no! So I cracked down on political blogs, removed some and banned them from the home page blog feed after setting up a Politics Forum. This was met with concerns over censorship and the appearance that… Continue

I'm going to be reposting some of my MOKB content on here now and then I think...when it's related to the local scene. You can see Ryan Reidy tonight at Birdys, opening for Tulsa and The Whigs...
Ryan Reidy told me about his Sisters
project quite a while ago, but like the a-hole I am, I forgot to check into them. MySpace is an ugly beast anymore to me. Anyway, lately, they've been… Continue
