Yes, my life is pretty much based on music. I was actually pretty excited to see several blogs I visit (Jenius and Braniax Blog) have videos. I'm a big fan of videos... the more obscure the better. I even looked into it myself and browsed through their listings (not enough Depeche Mode or Skinny Puppy) but opted to keep my page pretty silent for now. It wasn't until today that I started dreading SingingFool. Why? Well, when I visit either of those blogs listed above, I get an ad for SingingFool that resizes my browser and will not let me back to read posts. Kind of dumb. Putting the ad up there makes me think that this is their way of paying for a nice product. But, when you hamper the ability of someone to visit the site/blog/webpage, it becomes a bit too controlling. Now, this may only be happening when using the very safe Firefox browser but I'll only use IE when checking my bank account (because I have to.) As we speak, I've finally gotten into one of those blogs to read and comment but seen the ads twice and had to re-expand my screen each time. The "Close Ad" oddly enough doesn't work.
