I recently created Music Video Genome. It’s essentially Pandora for music videos (or a personalized MTV). Through the power of VHX’s new API, Last.fm and YouTube, it made it quite simple to accomplish.

This past weekend I participated in a video hackday. You get 24 hours to start and finish a video based project. At the end everyone demos their speed hack.

My project morphed several times over the course of the weekend, but the final result ended up being something I’m really enjoying.

I called it Genome because it’s not that simple to match music videos to real songs. Most music “videos” on YouTube are just a stupid static image. Granted not all songs have music videos, but it would be amazing if I could crowd-source the documentation of music videos to songs. If a song does not have an official music video, fans could make their own and have it bubble up as the official video.

I really enjoy creating alternate versions of the VHX.tv logo as identity exercises. I realized that this version I created with a single line translated perfectly into neon. I’ve also discovered that neon signs are relatively cheap to get produced! Desktop background sized version here. More versions coming!


SOUND CITY is like sitting in a room with your favorite legendary rock & roll artists, reminiscing about music, life, and the experience of recording at Sound City Studios. That happened to you too, right? Hey Tom Petty! What’s up Stevie Nicks?

We are so pumped to work with Foo Fighters frontman and certified chill guy Dave Grohl, who directed the film and serves as an awesome guide to the world of Sound City. Pre-order SOUND CITY now, directly from Dave, at a discounted price of $10 for access to instant rewards and exclusive clips. The full film will be released on February 1st, 2013. Rock.

FYI, Creampuffs - The Seasons 1 and 2 Bundles have moved to CarmillaXmasBundles.vhx.tv if you want to stream directly from VHX. There was confusion between the previous bundles and the upcoming movie ones, so we changed the URL. Apologies for the confusion! (Fear not, they will stay up literally forever.)

Note that if you log in to VHX and click on “Library,” you’ll always see the videos you’ve purchased in the past, regardless of the current URL.
