msb-0222 Some days it just pays to get up.


Feedback comes first, so...

You read/heard that right.

Some days it does pay to get up.

Of course some days, its not that easy to get up, but what of that?


I'm in a rockin' mood so you're getting some rockin' tunes.

I finally saw my ad in an issue of Momentum at a group meeting this evening (November 7th, 2007.)

It was "Awesome!"

The page is all smears of colors and "FREE SAMPLES" and other "type-hype", and there on the top of the magazine fold, on page 76, in the most desirable section, there is the ad, discreet, subtle, elegant*.

Some white space in the middle of the visual noise, plainly focused on a very simple message: (That should tell people to go there with their browsers.)

Tunes & Talk
for MSers
by MSers

People who aren't bright enough to figure it out aren't insulted and people who are bright enough will just "get it".

* Elegant comes from two Latin roots: "e", meaning "out", and "legare", meaning "choose."


Let me repeat: Wow! :-)

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

They had an interesting statistic in "Momentum".

The level of computer literacy amongst the general populace is 80%.

The level of computer literacy amongst MSers is 93%.

Let me repeat that: "The level of computer literacy amongst MSers is 93%."


I just heard (on November 02, 2007) on [ ] about Brainbows [ ] which are a fascinating way of visualizing brain structure in transgenic mice treated with various genes from jellyfish to make the axons and dendrites fluoresce. (The illustration of the technique, basically the photographs of some rat brains, are quite artistic [reminiscent of the French "Impressionistes"])

I've been doing some visualization of my own based on the MRI scans I had done about a year ago, but its more of an internalization thing to fix in my minds eye the lesions of my brain, uh, in my brain.

Its something I like to meditate on during "Tai Chi".


And I would apreciate if someone could write a review of this podcast on iTunes [ ] You can just select the link and, eventually, scroll down the iTunes page to "Customer Reviews"

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Some days it just pays to get up.

Some days it doesn't pay.

Some days everything hurts when I get up, but its all part of growing up and being British, uh, strike that. I'm quoting an old "Monty Python" routine there.

But that doesn't mean that I shouldn't get up, even though I'd probably feel less "ouchy" if I didn't.

---- "Swamped" by: "Lacuna Coil"


Feeling "ouchy" seems to be a major problem for some of us.

Specially when we can't define the ouch or exactly what it is that's ouching.

Life a bitch but it would really suck bituminous rocks if we didn't make the effort.

---- "Chastity Buys The Farm" by: "Lady White Noise"


Yup, some days it pays to get the hell out of bed ... and get my ass moving, because if I didn't, I wouln't be able to, and that just doesn't bear thinking about.

So get your butts off the couches or out of the bed.

It doesn't have to be elegant or unaided but get it moving dude and dudettes.
