Life on the Green Carpet:
Exclusive Interview with Ryan Leslie

by The Green A-Team

Going green on the red carpet.

Rising stars in the worlds of music and entertainment have the voice and popularity to shape a generation.

Ryan Leslie is no stranger to the spotlight.  His recent signing to Universal by way of Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, has thrust him into into a fast-paced world of private jets, tour busses, and a lifestyle surrounded by excess.

I think that my voice will be chiming in with the voices that everyone’s been hearing over the past few years, especially with the work of someone like an Al Gore, who’s really brought to the forefront in a very cool way the importance of taking stock in the environment and the smart use of our natural resources.

Ryan’s talents both as a singer and forward thinking entrepreneur give even more depth to his powerful voice and message.

Music Information Helps Grow Ears

by Rich Awn

It’s been three hours and I can’t stop looking/listening to the fertile aural bounty of!

With more than just one music man running the rat-a-tat show, Matt Tyson, Founder and Editor-in-Chief, has about 5 other awesome contributors taking amazing pictures and videos of live shows ‘n stuff, pumping out new music/band/album reviews that span the musical galaxy, all wrapped up in a delicious design by Destroy Space.  The writing is jumping off the screen with wit but not too much wiseassishness, instead they cleverly refer to other sites where provocative bile can be found spewing.

For you epic jammers, there are Iliad-like write-ups for songs over 8 minutes long.  The section’s bite-sized title is “8+” but packs a wallop as Matt and the gang probe their winding coils of gray matter to make connections, pontifications, and cosmic realizations about the long songs that set those tingly moments.

Reset your system preferences and ready your heady for some radio razzle dazzle! Ear Farm Radio is like a little pop-up piece of key lime playlist pie. Lots of new bands, song titles, and easy peasy Japaneasy usability. From one radio crackhead to another, Ear Farm’s got the good stuff goin’ on!

What more can I say? If you’re still reading this, you’ve already wasted 5 seconds of time better spent cultivating the phantasmagorical fields of sounds sprouting up over yonder at!
