Friday Snippets

I’ve been capturing snippets using Flock this week. Here’s what I grabbed.

1.  A new catchy j-pop band:


Stylistically, Love Psychedelico is highly reminiscent of the British Invasion of the late 60s, both members having cited The Beatles and Led Zeppelin as influences, though the influence of American folk and blues are also present (Kumi having claimed Janis Joplin and Sheryl Crow, and Sato Bob Dylan, as influences). To pay tribute to their influences, Love Psychedelico sometimes borrow song titles from the bands that influence them.

2. I’m sure the tone of this survey will be funny to bloggers. I like the way they make it sound like they had to call some bloggers on the phone to figure out what they were and where they were writing:

A telephone survey of a nationally-representative sample of bloggers, conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, has found that blogging is inspiring a new group of writers and creators to share their voices with the world.
