Ladies and gentlemen, meet Mike Tompkins: LIVE!
We’ve been fans of Mike Tompkins for almost a month – that’s all. Yesterday he released his latest and it’s going viral.
One man, one computer, a few pads and a couple of mikes in his girlfriend’s apartment. THIS is what the internet is all about. THIS is why Sony Music, Virgin, CBS and all the rest are freaking. Tompkins is making a living with his voice, and if he keeps it up he might make a good living – marketing straight to his fans, selling songs through iTunes or giving them away in exchange for club dates where he can make some money too.
No 15% contract for this man like some beggar saying “Please Mr. Sony, please distribute my CD and take all the money.”
Music, fiction, politics, economies, freedom: The internet changed everything.
My sock fell off. What do I do now?
Of course all the girls at work did nothing else yesterday after this hit the network! :-)
An old friend sent us this video with the message “Show this to your local Union guys and to workers. This is production!“
I couldn’t help but post it as a Spark. It’s magic and I want to visit India just to see this team in action.
“I didn’t think anyone would want to marry me, but she said she did.”
Shander Herian had been blind since an accident at the age of 10, but that didn’t matter to his wife to be. It was an arranged marriage for the Brit of Indian heritage and the Gurjeet said “yes”.
The couple worked hard. Together they assembled computers and sold them. She drove him to the customers and he used a braille keyboard to set up the software. Two daughters and ten years later they were millionaires.
Then he could see again.
An uplifting story of love and miracles that’s just what I needed on Monday morning.
You read a story like this, you feel good and you realize that compared to some people you have no problems at all!
