The Satellite 4 / Ferkin Merkin and Fishkin and the death of my SEOing aspirations

Another busy weekend. On Friday night went specifically to see The Satellite 4 play at Nectar and they did not disappoint. It’s not good to compare bands but they were so much more to my taste than the headliner band and much more accomplished musically. By happenstance I managed to meet band members Jeff Conlin and David Hudson before the gig both were really great guys who love the music they produce – and it shows. After the gig I bought their new CD and have been listening to it constantly ever since. My Reason love it too and are half dancing in their car seats as we drive, they cant stop moving to it.
I want to use excerpts from their songs as incidental music for TBS it would work perfectly so I’m going to call to see if they will let us …if we can at the very least, what with Tyrone Noonan’s quirky theme and Satellite 4s hip vibes we’ll be the coolest soundtrack on youtube without a doubt. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

On Saturday I had an appointment to sell windows in Seattle, the jury is still out on the success of that mission, however the owner of the property Meredith Fishkin and I got on very well, she told me of the work she is doing at Killiandrake and I told her about TBS. Meredith is keen to help out with us – thanks Meredith! and she mentioned that her family is in the SEOing business (her mom, Gillian Muessig is the co-founder/Director of SEOmoz ) she was hosting a gaming party that day so I hung around to meet the guys. One of “the guys” is her brother, Evan Fishkin who once being told about TBS also wanted in, and has agreed to build our website and help SEO it for us…oh joy oh bliss…Thanks Evan! We should rename our production company Ferkin, Merkin and Fishkin – but we’d end up sounding like a bunch of dodgy lawyers …which may not be a bad thing. We bashed around a number of ideas , some of which are fantastic. I’m so stoked we have them onboard and wished I could have stayed longer that day.

I’ll keep you up to speed with events as they happen …maybe.
