V-Moda Crossfade LP2

I can’t believe it’s Friday already. This week has gone by so fast. I think it’s safe to say that the weeks keep going by faster and faster all the time. Almost at a scary rate.

I got my new headphones the other day. The V-Moda Crossfade LP2. Wow talk about some serious ear candy. I had the model before them which were pretty gnarly on the bass side. But the new LP2 have evened out the sound quality and are totally worth the money.

Twitter Opens Its Nifty Analytics Dashboard To Everyone

Back in July, Twitter launched a really nifty analytics dashboard. A bit like Google Analytics for tweets, it allows you to gauge the performance of each and every tweet you sent. How many people saw it? How many of those actually clicked your links?

There was one catch, though: it was only open to advertisers and verified users.

No longer! Now you too can obsess way too hard over the performance of every tweet you send! Hurray!

News of the change comes from Twitter front end engineer Ian Chan:

and this page lurking in Twitter’s support base confirms it: the dashboard should now be open to every account that has been open for at least 14 days, isn’t restricted/protected/suspended, and (curiously) that primarily tweets in English, French, Japanese, or Spanish.

 

You can find the newly unlocked analytics dashboard right here.

Waking Up Before the Bass Drops

skillrex-drop-the-bass

It’s 2am, my body has decided that it’s had enough sleep i guess. So now I am sitting in the loft writing this post. I’ve decided that I am just going to let my body do whatever it tells me to do even it is means waking up before the afterhours parties start here in Vegas. 

We used to be part of that crowd, Charlotte and I. 2am was about the time we were finally ready to hit the town. Living in Vegas means that everyday is Friday. So the options are pretty much limitless when it comes to doing whatever the hell you want.

 Oh, how glad I am those days have passed. You meet some real interesting characters when you leave the house at 2am and usually come home with some pretty good stories though.

2 or 3 years ago we gave up drinking. It wasn’t court ordered or anything we just decided that we’d had enough. It was time to check out the next chapter of this book of life. I couldn’t be happier with the choice in all honesty and find comfort in the fact that hangovers are a thing of the past. No more making a fool of myself, No more bad decisions and no more running with an unsavory crowd or beer runs.

When you give up drinking you immediately eliminate a massive amount of those little tiny stressful decisions you have to make. Like, going out with guys afterwork to toss a few back. Or spending your paycheck on cabanas and mini bottles of Skyy. In Vegas when you go out, you pretty much have 2 choices. you either stand all night or you pay an enormous amount of money to sit down. For the most part, there are no free seats in Vegas. Not drinking also allows us to plan our days knowing that we’ll never have to make another lame choice like that.

It wasn’t difficult to give up the hooch and we’ve never looked back. I like to think of our life as chapters in a book and when that chapter is done and time to move on to the next. You do exactly that. You move yourself through the story and experience what the pages of the next chapter bring. You only need to carry through the weak ties, memories and such that are needed to string the story along. So that means all the other crap, deleted. 

Now instead I wake up at 2am for no reason what so ever and rather than overthinking why I suffer from bi-phasic sleep or whatever the hippies are pushing this year. I am just going to start doing whatever my body tells me to even if it means waking up before the bass drops…
