05 Nov 2009 Sound Bites From The Angel Via Twitter To Your Thirsty Ear…
It was a little over a year ago that Lucy Beer told me to “get on twitter” and “start your blog”… immediately I was resistant to both. First of all, I had no idea how twitter worked or what on earth it could be used for, and secondly, the idea of starting a blog felt like another responsibility that I already didn’t have enough time to do and then keep up with.
It took me a minute, but I must admit that I’m glad I did both. I’d forgotten how much I actually like to write. Though I don’t post more than a few times a month, I enjoy it.
Twitter was a bit mysterious to me. Everyone I knew was bearing their souls, photos, opinions, eating habits and more on facebook on a minute by minute basis and it didn’t appeal to me, so why twitter? The brevity, immediacy and lack of personal self-exploitation on twitter was way more interesting to me. So I started popping into twitter here and there and continue to do so, though not all day, every day, like some.
The unguarded stream of consciousness can be very revealing, and folks seem to let it all hang out both good and bad. However, I’ve discovered some very cool podcasters, bloggers and music enthusiasts who are now part of our extended Supa Crucial family… and it’s all been very organic. Kevin English and I started tweeting and dm’ing earlier this year. He tweeted about how much he dug “KiDULTHOOD” and the score, and that opened up a dialogue. More recently, Kevin (eleetmusic) asked if he could interview me for a magazine called Stay Thirsty and here is a link to that interview.
