Intern blog post…watch out!:
Huckleberry hails from Connecticut. After a short stint of walking the streets of NYC at 4 a.m. (with a tuba), he finally had enough dough for a bus ticket to Atlanta where he graciously accepted the job of “overworked, underpaid intern.” After all, what’s a berry gonna do with money?
Hey guys, before we get started I have something I need to get off my chest… My name is Huckleberry, and I’m a Crossfitter. Yes, I am a member of that weird cultish gym that has strange acronyms for things that don’t need acronyms. We alienate people by telling literally everyone we see that we are more hardcore than they are. You may have seen someone wearing a T-shirt saying “My warm-up is your workout.” Or my personal favorite:
(Crossfit Salem. We will kill you)
This morning (read: 5 AM) I was officiating a team’s workout in preparation for the Crossfit Games Open. The whole point of it was to do as many reps as possible in a certain amount of time. This guy I’m watching starts out wicked (I’m from the northeast, deal with it) fast and then falls quickly to a snails pace and it’s killing me. He is much stronger and faster than I am, but I could keep up with him. I’m screaming at him to fix his form and to think.
Suddenly…his pace doubles.
He was working twice as hard, using twice the energy he needed to. You can’t solve your problems by brute force! You still have to do things right!
YOU. HAVE. TO. BE. EFFICIENT.
At Tunefruit, we pride ourselves in doing things right (and efficiently). We care about you guys and don’t want you to waste your time searching for killer tracks. That’s why we curate our catalog and why we created our Deep Tagging™ system. You search in Google and get 10 million hits but only look at the first two pages of results. We give you the equivalent of the first three pages – just in case.
And, while Google doesn’t curate results, we do. Every track that is considered for inclusion into Tunefruit’s catalog goes through a process of two human ears listening, tagging, describing, genre-picking, and sometimes being deleted. So, when you jump on our site, with it’s track mouse-over ability, and do a search for Batman, all you find is awesome, totally relevant, not-at-all-sucky stock music.
CrossFit and Tunefruit, more similar than you would think. Right?
