Alice Cooper was my favorite band when I was 4 years old. I figured out how to safely replicate all of his on stage death scenes. That made the adults a bit concerned.

SeepeopleS — Interest is the Real Net

A few weeks ago I randomly found a music video on YouTube that I liked a lot. Then this weekend when I went to the studio to return a camera I ran into Peter Keys (keyboardist for Bob Segar & Kid Rock). I hadn’t seen Peter in a few years since he worked on Bikini Calculus when I produced that. He and I talked about our new projects and come to find out he is the keyboardist of SeepeopleS.

People talk about it being a small world when you find someone in a place you don’t expect. They feel its a coincidence. It might be but its more likely that you both are their because you share interests.

Out of the millions of videos on YouTube I “randomly” found SeepeopleS but in reality I was looking for things I liked. And Peter Keys and I shared some things in common and that is why we had met originally and he worked on Bikini Calculus. So when I found the music video it was because it interested me. Its not surprising that I would like a song a friend likes.

The web makes it easier to find your friends, even among the billions of people out there. The Net is not computers, its the links between people
