Hey, yeah, I know the name of this website sucks. I was 15 when I created it, cut me some slack. And while we're at it: I'm not punk, I'm not emo, I'm not hardcore, and I'm not indie. I'm a music fan and that's all I'll ever claim to be.
I'm Jason Tate and I founded this website. I’m a writer, music enthusiast, web-developer, typography geek, podcaster, and a coffee and beer snob.
Sometime around 1996 I created absolutepunk.net -- a music community to discuss underappreciated music I loved. Over the next few years, it got popular. Then it got really popular. The goal of the website was to introduce people to new music and provide a community for people to discuss music that was not often heard in the mainstream. Oh, and for me to whine and moan about things I felt like to a chorus of "why is this news!?" posts. In 2004 I (sold-out and) sold the company to SpinMedia while staying on to consult and manage a variety of other music properties. If you're interested in finding out more about me, check out my blog: chorus.fm. I write there pretty frequently about music, technology, and really anything that comes to mind and doesn't make sense for AP.net.
I also do consulting for bands, tech companies, websites, design, and things like that. Interested in working together on a project? Reach out and let's talk.

Hi Jason, just finished listening to the new podcast this morning at work. Love it. Glad a wilhelm scream and no trigger got a mention too. I'm going to see a wilhelm scream at Glasgow in August. Can't wait. They have support from a Scottish punk band called PMX. I would recommend checking out their 2004 album Rise and Shine. It is just a really good fast punk rock album. They are about to go into the studio to record a new album. Wouldn't say they are like a wilhelm scream and no trigger exactly. But they do play fast and at times aggressive music if that's what you were after. Very good listen imo. Thanks again to you and Thomas for another excellent podcast.

This may become a bit convoluted, but I actually e-mailed you regarding the hiring. I have a unique background and history with this site and am hoping you may consider me despite my lack of writing works on music.
This is my new account, but I reference my old account in the e-mail (blinkangel_44). Please take a look at it when you get a chance!

Thanks for AP.net
I'm a 30 yr old Christian school teacher who's been checking your site literally on a daily basis since I discovered it and the internet back in 1999-2000. Just want to thank you.
After years of guesses, and now seeing your Rdio playlist, I have to ask, what's your background/introduction into Christian bands? Let's just avoid the debate and jump right to it, clearly you have some sort of connection to the whole Christian punk thing that happened in the late 90's. I was just wondering what it was. I mean, everyone name drops MxPx, and the die-hards mention Slick Shoes, but Dogwood? and Value Pac? SICK OF FREAKING CHANGE?!?!? I know you're west coast and all, but with all the punk bands out there, what in the world would attract you to bands like that? I love em, and ever since my older brother bought me On the Cover for my birthday and opened me up to a world beyond Sublime, Green Day, and Rancid, the Christian punk/emo/hardcore scene has kept me alive.
And now, in the nu-punk era, I have fallen in love with TWY and others, much to my wife's shagrin to me playing it in the house (2 yr olds can't decipher the F-bomb). The Pop Punks Not Dead Tour was the best show I've been to since MxPx played the Electric Factory with the Hippos and Ghoti Hook. I know, Christian school teacher, Soupy would probably mock me from the stage
Pretty sure if we met back in the 90's, we woulda been friends...
Done rambling, back to work. Thanks.
