I find that YouTube triggers the A.D.D. in me...one minute I'm searching for an old school Corrosion of Conformity video, and the next thing I know I'm watching every single "Fail Blog" video to every remake of Jimmy McMillan's "The Rent is Too Damn High"... followed by every other stupid thing I can think of that there might be a video of. After a couple hours, any memories of my original idea are nothing more than a fleeting memory much like the winners on American Idol.
Now, when I'm searching out music videos I usually take a peek on Blastro.com - a site that's catered to flightly music lovers like me. And even cooler - not too long ago, I got to sit down with the founder of Blastro Networks, Rob Campanell, as part of a series of interviews for the Music Void. I knew I would be checking out their events at SXSW in Texas, so getting some face time with the guy that started it all was icing on the cake.
Blastro Networks runs three on-demand, genre-specific websites (blastro.com, roxwel.com and yallwire.com ) and had a pretty stellar year - growing to the largest music video (including artist interviews, performance & festival coverage) network just behind Youtube and Google.
Check out the chat below (btw, I hate my voice in this one):
So if you're in a band, and you have a video...think about us folks that have non-existant attentions spans. It's easy to upload it to Youtube and lump it in with millions of other videos, but then you have to count on people like me finding it.
