Mb LogoWhat’s a molotov.bliss?

What’s really in a name? Other than a label attached to the things we have created and done for ubiquity. Molotov.bliss (acronym Mb) is the pseudonym and/or brain child of Jared Blalock AKA: B00MER Music Producer, Artist, and Technical Magento Developer & Architect.

Previously a forum moderator for another earlier LAMP E-Commerce package: X-Cart; Before working briefly with OsCommerce. Eventually releasing my own 3rd party templates and modifications for X-Cart through Cart-Lab. A now defunct store to focus more on Magento Commerce with the main feature draw of Upgrade Paths & OOP structure.  Initially stumbling on early alpha version.  While eventually migrating to 1.x once out of beta.  Now working with version 2.x while attempting to Help and giving back to the Magento community ecosystem with others on Stack overflow & GitHub. I mostly discuss Magento on Twitter & follow others working with it.

Magento Developer Plus Certified

Currently focus has been in back-end development, Magento performance tuning and general E-commerce solution architect consulting for unique solutions for clients & agencies alike.

Previously a part of one of the very first net-labels: Kosmic Free Music Foundation or KFMF, (1994-2000). Still producing today. Releasing most tracks for free via Soundcloud and other channels independently. My choice of Digital Audio Workstations is ReNoise.  License my sounds to those interested.

“…And I’d like to just continue to be able to express myself as best as i can with this instrument and i feel like i have a lot of work to do still, I’m a student – of the drums and I’m also a teacher of the drums too”

A small selected collection over a period of many years, of many different creative projects. Some are live screenshots from a browser. Some are Adobe Photoshop mock-ups, while others are magazine and/or flyer designs. Molotov.bliss was also a featured site of the day on About.com and FlashKit, for a Flash-based version of molotovbliss.com back around 2000. Other designs can also be found on my BeHance & DeviantArt profiles.
