The theme is Mashups vs The 90s, and people are playing some sick jams that will kick you right in the nostalgia. The person with the longest winning streak by 9pm EDT will win avatar stickers and pins! Come hang out!
Trying to find yourself in the sea of avatars is more enjoyable (and much less stressful) than Where’s Waldo*. For an extra challenge: don’t cheat by using the Swaggarilla.
* Yes. I get very stressed out from Where’s Waldo. It’s the last thing I’d ever want to do under the influence; my fragile psyche would never be the same.
Having my usual Tuesday marathon of Turntable.fm: not quite Tumblr worthy, usually. But this will be the last one I throw until December. Trying to get as many people in there as I can; old and new, familiar and unfamiliar. It’s freeform format, so don’t be shy about what to play, as long as you aren’t rude to the others.

(And for those outside of the US, there may be ways to get in. I know there used to be, unsure if they work still or not. If you’re determined enough, make a Google search and see.)
Halloween avatars on Turntable.fm!
Another reason Turntable.fm remains one of my favorite sites,
So, this happened.
Turntable.fm — Better social lubricant than alcohol.
Turntabling it up until either LIPA shuts off my power, or Hurricane Irene knocks it out!
(Usual room, too. Not gonna bother making a special Irene room like those cool cats over at the Wall Street Journal did.)
The second you see me offline is the second my power goes out (or I’m forcibly evacuated by the county.) Otherwise I’m gonna try and keep this going until the skies are clear once more!
Another reason I may be seen offline is because I fell asleep. But we’ll worry about that later.
Check in to listen or play some tunes sometime. (May not work in all countries thanks to the idiocy that is copyright law.)
I’m (obviously) not in here all of the time, but if it’s a weeknight and after 7 PM (Eastern Standard Time) there’s a small chance I am, with an increased likelihood after 12 AM.
Although it’s been about 11 days since I first got onto it (likely thanks to sacrilegium), I only started to DJ this morning and I’m pretty hooked on it.
Since I played Jet Grind Radio at the age of 11 (funny to see that number again!) I’ve always fancied being the DJ of a pirate radio station. It’s my “I WANNA BE AN ASTRONAUT-COWBOY” dream job if I’ve ever had one, and this is the closest I’ve gotten to that experience.
Blip.fm and 8tracks have given me similar happiness, and I’ll still be using those services, but they haven’t been able to quell this nagging desire to the degree that Turntable.fm has.
Childish career fantasies aside, this site is a tremendously enjoyable social experience and I recommend anyone out there to try it (especially those of you who are friends with me on Facebook!) This, along with the imminent release of a U.S. version of Spotify are going to be huge game changers in the way Americans listen to music on the internet.
Turntable.fm is currently in beta, and only those who either have a proper email invite or a Facebook friend on Turntable.fm are allowed in. If you can’t get in and desperately want in, and you’re a follower of my Tumblr, leave a Reply and I’ll link you to my Facebook and hopefully then you’ll be able to get in.
