So who the hell is cliptip anyways?

Name: earnest jones (yes, its a pen-name, say no to stalking)

Location: Toronto and Montreal based, but prairie raised. Did time in Edmonton, London, Taipei, Vancouver, San Francisco. Did corporate stays in New York, Boston, Cincinnati, Montreal and all abouts New Jersey. Fell in love with Dublin, Edinburgh, Havana, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris and Reykjavik. Barely survived Amsterdam and barely made it out of Hong Kong. Grew up indoctrinated with hatred for Calgary, but I'm hoping that's just a hockey thing.

Favourite Music: Too many to sort out. Check here for what I'm listening to.

Favourite Record Shops: Amoeba (Los Angeles, Berkley or San Francisco), Soundscapes (Toronto), Rasputin (San Francisco, Berkley), Blackbyrd Moozik (Edmonton), Newbury Comics (Boston), Other Music (New York), Zulu (Vancouver)

Favourite Venues (that still exist): Opera House (Toronto), Mercury Lounge (New York), Metropolis (Montreal), Shepherd's Bush Empire (London), Brixton Academy (London), 111 Minna (San Francisco)

Favourite Blogs: Check my blog roll. If I have to focus on a couple, I'd say Chromewaves (who is like an unspoken godfather to me, godbless you Frank!) and Goldenfiddle (because Spencer makes me howl out loud).

Dream Job: Music video director, obvs.

Day the Dream Died: For want of paycheck. But I'm always up to a treatment pitch. Call me!

Breadwinning: Branding / Advertising / Marketing (but woefully not in Music, Entertainment, Gaming or Fashion, at least not yet). I am 100% not affiliated with any Major Label or Media Empire like so many sham bloggers, you know who you are! However, I do accept free stuff, cause blogging don't pay the bills. I, however only heap praise on stuff I like. So if you've got some quality goods that, judging what I tend to write about, suits or expands my tastes, then bring it on. Call me!

The Blogging Impulse: I'm pretty passionate about stuff like music and videos and culture, so if my tiny hands can help the world experience the cool stuff I discover, I'm all for it. The great thing is people all across the world tip me on cool stuff all the time (sorry if I cannot respond to all the emails, but I read them all and thank you so much!) so I get such awesome exposure to really cool emerging stuff which I totally love. You might say it's a community thang. I think also, the fact that I don't make videos as a full time profession even though I would love to make a go at it at least as a part time thing, I totally appreciate those who do. It's really a path where you have almost limitless creativity. Those people deserve exposure and I want to help them get it. Earnestly.

And yes, it was for medical reasons. ;P
