Photo reblogged from Brooklyn Veganette with 6 notes

WOJCIK
BUTCHERS & BAKERS
THE HOMOPHONES
At Union Pool (484 Union Ave, corner of Meeker)! The awesomely named Butchers & Bakers play at 9pm, followed by Wojcik at 10pm, topping the evening off with Philly band the Homophones. All for $8. This…this I like. 

This is a new blog that is already better than Brooklyn Vegan.

What makes Tumblr so good for this? The networkedness of it gives new ideas the chance to find an audience and encourages collaboration, and for individual bloggers creates some of the intimacy of old print fanzine networks, where you knew a lot of your audience. But more importantly, Tumblr thrives on anonymity and persona building, unlike the “real names” culture of Facebook or Google+.
Tom Ewing. Tumblr is weird this way. My Tumblr posts to my Facebook, but there are people who read my Tumblr who I am totally unfamiliar with and many people I’m friends with on Facebook who I’m sure never read my Tumblr. What he says about the collaborative nature of it is why it’s hands down my favorite social network.

Rawktumblr: 14 Ways Music Blogs Could Be Useful Again →

rawkblog:

(A follow-up to my assertion that music blogs are dying. Here are some ways for them to maybe not die.)

1) Why are you blogging?

Just for fun? Do you want to be a music journalist? Help your favorite bands reach a wider audience? Share your unique expertise in an era/genre? Help your friends…

Pretty much cosign all of this.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

ATTN: THIS BLOG IS NOW CALLED LIKEAPAIROFBOTTLEROCKETS.TUMBLR.COM. IT IS NO LONGER CALLED HARDLYART.TUMBLR.COM. 

This was the original name of my blog.

It’s from this Mountain Goats song.

I thought it was too long so I changed it to Hardly Art which is from this Thermals song.

People kept thinking I was the label Hardly Art. Which was fine. But confusing.

Now it is called Like A Pair of Bottle Rockets again. 

The end. 

EDIT: Doesn’t appear to be working right now, though. Hopefully it will soon.

Kim Hou, a high school senior in San Francisco, said she quit blogging months ago, but acknowledged that she continued to post fashion photos on Tumblr. “It’s different from blogging because it’s easier to use,” she said. “With blogging you have to write, and this is just images. Some people write some phrases or some quotes, but that’s it.
