The Brilliance!


We’re really internet and we’re really back. A website about things Benjamin , Chuck , Virgil , and various friends & guests think are interesting. Little-to-no specific focus, a bit odd, speling errors, and incredibly culturally relevant.

Muxtape! 2 things.

Like this app needs anymore press you know? Sheesh, everyone is vouching for this thing…like everyone. 2 things. #1 - Love the concept and execution. So simple…I love simple things. How many times have you been like ‘hey, I’ll throw a mix tape together for you’ and then you never follow thru with it cause you actually have to get a CDR, etc…or you have actually throw everything in a folder and send it over via (my favorite). Those are nice, and then you have the music…but, what about house parties, etc? You don’t have all your music with you, so just make a couple ‘Muxtapes’ and pull them up when you get to the house or whatever…you know? I probably could of thought of better examples than that, ha. Whatever, its a really, really great app…works well. And I like it. #2 - The design…is awesome. Really, really beautiful and simple. Like Jason from 37signals said: “you-can’t-mess-this-up design” or something like that. It’s just dead simple…an example of form following function. I seriously can’t get enough of sites that work/look/feel like this. Give me more! #3 (bonus) - Muxtape made me realize how much it can suck to have DRMed music. I couldn’t upload like 75% of the music wanted to because I bought it on iTunes. What the hell is going on with the “music industry” right now…honestly, 18 months from now, where will we be? Anyway, enjoy the Muxtape I made below. ***I love, LOVE, how it doesn’t have some goofy flash embeddable player…or an embeddable player of any kind. I just don’t like them.
