Storied independent electronic music label, Ultra Records, recently used one of our QR codes for a monstrously catchy single by their artist, Riz. We were “pinged” by our label contact, who pointed us to the video on YouTube, and— lo and behold— there it was!
Riz was recently invited to play BlackBerry’s ‘DevCon 10′ so clearly, he was chosen due to his uber-pingability! Check out the “PING!!! Me Baby” ringtone, and think of all the new and exciting ways to promote with a simple QR code. From online to print, to video— QR codes are where it’s at!
It’s a boo-tiful day in the neighborhood! All the ghouls and boys at Myxer headquarters have joined farces for some pre-Halloween fun. While working on the beach tends to make every day officewear feel like casual Friday, today is more of a Freaky Friday as we were challenged to dress our Halloween best for the first annual MYXERween costume luncheon. As we sunk our fangs into some delicious pizza and werewolfed it down, bloody slice by bloody slice, we admired some some of the Myxer team’s creativity. From Bloody Ballerina’s to Bling Bearing Baldness to Infomerial Madness to Mad Rock Stars to BioHazards to a Living Myxer.com Website (and of course the requisite guy in a gorilla suit) we had costume clad employees to suit anyone’s Trick or Treat tastes.

Shorty Rossi & Hercules Myxin' it up in L.A. with Blake
A few months back I had the distinct pleasure of meeting one “true gem” of a guy, Shorty Rossi of Animal Planet T.V. fame. I approached Mr. Rossi with hopes we could disseminate the “Shorty’s Rescue” message far and wide— via the spirit of mobile.
I’d been watching his show, ‘Pit Boss’, during its first season, thoroughly enjoyed it, and felt strongly that we at Myxer could assist in getting Shorty’s content to his legions of fans holding fast to their mobile devices.
Shorty and his staff are nothing short of amazing, and to say they’re “committed” to their cause would be doing them a disservice, indeed— Shorty Rossi and his crew walk the proverbial walk right alongside their four-legged, Pit bull friends.
And though they’re extraordinarily busy filming, amongst a literal slew of other initiatives, Shorty took the time out to shoot some exclusive photos and videos for Myxer.
To that end, we cordially invite you to check out the content, and if you’re a fan— we kindly ask that you head on over to Shortywood, take a look at all the amazing stuff, learn about the Pit Bull breed— and do your part to help Shorty’s Charities!
To check out everything Shorty, be sure to text “SHORTYWOOD” to 69937. Here’s a great wallpaper to get your tail waggin’!
Today’s F.T.T. treat comes from the Pacific Northwest, the city of Portland in particular. Moxie Black is a duo consisting of rapper iLLA and producer Dekk.
Self-described as “New-wave, indie, electro infused hip-hop,” the duo’s tunes are magnanimous, ridiculously catchy, and would most certainly feel right at home in Pharell’s headphones whilst grooving to Passion Pit at a house party for Lil’ Wayne. Did we say that? Yes, we said that.
