i've been asked to be a contributer to JOYdropper on behalf of Trenton-area (SWcentral?) New Jersey based on this website and a few well received e-mails.

i'm honored and Jersey-proud to be a part of what i see as a beautiful opportunity for New Jersey musicians and creators to spread beyond their immediate stomping grounds and explore the intricate web of local scenes and hero/heroine musicians. the more support and the more attention that is thrown at JOYdropper, the more effective it can potentially be. so please, please, pay attention. it'll all be worth it.

because fuck brooklyn, fuck manhattan, and philadelphia's wimpy... and not in the hamburger-eatin way.

you heard me.

pay attention:

and we quoth JD (& the word is good) ::

Greetings lost Internet traveller! You’re probably here because we’ve been shooting our electronic seed throughout New Jersey. Now allow that seed to germinate into finger tips that tickle your brain particles, and make you wanna have fun.


Yessss. We are JOYdropper, coming to you and filling your screen with all the fun your resolution allows! JOYdropper is a group of friends from New Jersey who want to give you bored somethings somewhere to go. While you’re sleeping we look for cool things to do — obsessively collecting all the happenings, the people who happen them, and the places they happen — so that you can do them when you’re awake.

That’s because we want to wake you up. There’s pockets of awesome people in our smelly state, all seemingly disconnected. We’re hoping that artists, musicians and other creatives will start venturing outside their small ponds, to other small ponds…and then more awesome shit will start happening.

You can find the sum of our efforts on this here calendar. If you’re too lazy to read the Internet, we can also personally hand deliver these events to your crummy inbox every week. Sign up in that box to the right that says, “MAILING LIST.”

We’ll also be throwing our own little hootenannies, so check back often. This is just the beginning of a whole lot of some bullshit.
