Lesson learned: Don't throw shit at Jonsi.
Not gonna lie. That's me.
Ooohhhhhh. Big words.
Abraham's writing and character acting are as bad as his hair dye.
Paypal will be fine, everyone.
10 bucks says that Wichita is knocked out in round 2.
Easily the worst episode of the entire series so far.
Well in that case, make sure to get the HDMI cables with gold connectors.
And hello :)
Listen to Tyles. Don't buy a 4k screen unless you are planning on getting something that is at the very minimum 90 inches. Or you are going to sit 5 feet away from it. Marketing bullshit.
Yeah it was a vocal delivery / lyrics problem for me as well.
Yeah, I'm not that crazy about the new one.
Preacher is getting a pilot.
I imagine the frequent travel afforded by military service made it easier to prey on minors.
The ticket says GA Balcony which leads me to believe it's a balcony only ticket with no specific reserved seat.
It might. Im not entirely sure. Still available if youre interested.
I have an extra ticket for Gogol Bordello tomorrow if anyone is interested. Up in the balcony. Let me know.
Or, you can download Reaper which is a digital recording program and is essentially free. You just need a way to get audio into the computer.
Check it out here.
If one of you has a macbook, Garage Band will do it going through your headphone jack.
If a "fan" isn't willing to spend 10 bucks on something that costs far and above 10 bucks to make, and they think it's great, then yeah. Fuck that fan.
And this is Pandora's fault. Because of the way they operate, they have to pay per song. They play far more songs than terrestrial and satellite radio, who pay using a percentage system. Pandora's...
GOT panel at Comic Con
He's talking about songwriting royalties because the point of the article is that Pandora wants to lower those royalties. As for terrestrial radio, there is no way to accurately quantify how many...
This is from 2010, but still interesting, even if it were only 75% accurate.
The real challenge- well setting up a business is a challenge in itself- would be dealing with the labels in a distribution capacity, unless you are talking about catering only to independent...
The numbers in that Rolling Stone article are radically different from everything else I've seen out there. I wonder who they asked and what rates were submitted for the article.
Here's the close of this article which mentions it.
Here's part 2 of that article if anyone is interested. It talks about Thom and Nigel pulling their stuff from Spotify.
Pandora operates on what is called a compulsory license, which states that artists can not opt of of their songs being included in the service. This type of license is mandated by the government, for...
Also I dont think his numbers are that dishonest. He is only comparing songwriting royalties in his examples. Already you can see that Pandora is far lower than other streams, and they want to cut...
The closing point to that article though, and what I feel is the main one, is that Pandora will soon be lobbying congress to change the royalty rate for songwriters, which has been estimated to be...
How many copies did you make?
Ha. Cracker, yes. I got mixed up. I think everything he's said/posted about the topic is pretty reasonable and I agree with him. I feel like he has a unique perspective as both a musician and...
Also here are two episodes of a podcast about Spotify, artists rights, the streaming business model and everything under that umbrella.
Andrew, you should give these a listen.
Taping a song off the radio is not the equivalent to downloading the entire album in 5 minutes, though. The accessibility to anything you want in a digital format for free devalues the work as a...
No artist gets paid well by streaming services, but that isn't justification for that continuing to be the norm.
Thank you, everyone. Andrew wins this round.
Why thank you everyone. They are sweethearts. Very mellow, but I think they just need time to open up and adjust. I certainly don't mind the mellowness though.
I became a pet owner yesterday. Mayra and I adopted two (lord help me) dogs from Baja Dog Resuce. They are sisters, and we just couldn't split them up. Their names are Brooklyn (left and top) and...
Here's some Bledsoe jams. Keep in mind he's 6' 1.
Bledsoe is extremely explosive, which can be great at times, and leads to mistakes at others. The kid's got game though. Very entertaining.
Caron Butler to Suns
Eric Bledsoe to Suns
JJ Redick to Clips
Jared Dudley to Clips
2nd round draft picks to Bucks
I'll miss Bledsoe. He was fun to watch.
Adele is 17 and Daft Punk is 24, so you know it's legit.
This sounds great. Super clean. I'd like more snare drum, but hey, I'm biased.
Goddamn. I fucked a bitch 1 time, 2 times, 3 times, 4 times, bedtime.
"Sank you! She's so cute! She's like a pikachu!"
Bjork gays are the worst gays.
Possibly Maybe and Heirloom were very unexpected and very awesome. Not so awesome were the group of flamers behind us being loud and obnoxious the whole show. Kinda comes with the territory though,...
You're welcome, BRO!
