5 years ago I was the music editor at a major New York magazine.
4 Years ago I was laid off.
3 years ago I fell off the side of a five story building.
2 years ago I got out of the hospital and moved back in with my mom
1 year ago I ditched my wheelchair and learned to walk again.

Next year? I'll say I spent 12 months spreading the message of Wax Atlas, a positivist music recommendation website built in opposition to the ego-driven, nerd-only outlets online. As always, that's yours for free (only thing you need is a promise never to utter the word "hipster" again).

Now, reviving the lost joy of physical media (tapes, lps and everything else)... That may be worth a little something extra...

CURATED MIX-TAPE CLUB

For four measly little bones a month, you can join the ranks of the retro-awesome elite. Each month, we'll send you an expert-curated, limited-edition mix on a physical cassette tape with a specially designed cover and notes inside about the mix itself. Contributors include prominent bands, critics, academics and other noted nerds. These serve as accessible introductions to a genre, but, as with the best mixtapes of yore, the format is otherwise left up to each individual mix maker. Tapes also come with an exclusive digital download.

Goals
$0 of $250 per month
Having spent the last 6 months honing the site and its content, I'd like to officially register it as a business so that we can pursue other types of funding and revenue.
