    Big thanks to KCRW for having me out to an intimate performance by the lovely Miss Shelby Lynne, a living legend whose Revelation Road was one of the most overlooked albums of 2011. Do yourself a favor and go back & get it, touching stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing the hottest $12 ticket in town, next week’s Alabama Shakes show at the Troubadour.

      by scott / Comment (0)

      I’ll be damned if that Gotye video didn’t show up on my Facebook wall no less than 15 times last week, no idea what the sudden catalyst was, since none of my friends listen to commercial radio – KCRW has been playing him since summer, I made mention of him prior to his Read More…

        Tipsheet Email Nov 28, 2011 — 2012 the Year of Visual Social Commerce

        by scott / Comment (0)

        Hope you are all having a phenomenal holiday sales season, I’m already eyeballing bigger & better things for 2012. I wanted to go back to what I was saying in May of this year — that image-based communication is going to be one of the biggest trends of the year.

        And sure enough, 6 months later –
        Pinterest Reports 2000% Growth
        Instagram Nearly Triples Users to 10 Million
        Tumblr Goes from 1 Billion to 10 Billion Posts in 1 Year

        And as big as these numbers are, they are only going to get bigger, especially as tablets replace laptops. Less typing / more snapping, hop on it.

              Tipsheet Email Oct 31, 2011— Making Money from the NBA Lockout

              by scott / Comment (0)

              America just got a huge windfall, giving consumers tons of extra money to spend. Is it a tax break? Nope. Is it a drop in gasoline prices? Nope.
              The NBA lockout will create one of the largest free-ups in money that we Americans have ever seen — how much money? Let’s take a guess. I estimate Read More…
