    Default Coachella artist Calvin Harris loses entire album's worth of material...

    From the NME...

    http://www.nme.com/news/calvin-harris/35654


    The poor bastard...

    Calvin Harris has lost an entire album's worth of new music after his laptop went missing at Heathrow Terminal Five.

    Harris' laptop went missing at the airport after the solo artist was returning from the US.

    A spokesperson for the label told BBC News that the laptop contained the only copies of Harris' forthcoming new album.

    "He has lost the only copy of the new album," the spokesperson said. "It is a big cause for concern – months of work have gone into that."

    The spokesperson revealed that Harris had been offered £750 componsation.

    How is this even possible, unless he composed the whole album on that flight? You back up anything that's important. Especially on a laptop. My Laptop drives have failed so many times.

    I've lost a few days worth of work before and it's awful. I keep adding more and more RAIDs and backup systems for various things.

    Publicity stunt?

    If you are a DJ, how do you not:

    1) have an external hard drive ($200!)

    2) back your shit up online ($FREE!)


    He has only himself to blame for being retarded.

    Richard D James left an iPod with a new album on it on an airplane once (I think it was Drugks, I forget). He rushed to release the album after that since he was afraid it was going to spread on the internet.

    Perhaps Naomi Campbell had something to do with the laptop theft...

    LONDON (AP) - Supermodel Naomi Campbell was arrested at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 Thursday for allegedly spitting at a police officer, Sky News television reported.

    A London Metropolitan Police spokesman said a woman was arrested at the terminal for an assault on police, but refused to disclose her identity or give her age.

    The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity in line with force policy.

    BAA PLC, the company that runs Heathrow, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.

    British Airways PLC, the terminal's sole occupant, referred questions to BAA.

    Campbell, a British fashion model, has a history of getting physical with assistants and employees, and has attended an anger management program.

    In 2000, Campbell pleaded guilty in Toronto to an assault charge for beating an assistant while making a film in Canada in 1998. Under an agreement with prosecutors, Campbell expressed remorse and was released without punishment or a criminal record.

    In January 2007, Campbell pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault for throwing her mobile phone at her maid in a dispute over a missing pair of jeans.

    A representative for Campbell could not immediately be located.

    I can see something like this happening.
    Shame on him for:
    1) Not backing up
    and
    2) Leaving his laptop out of his sight.

    idiot,

    Well I'm sure he's got a copy on an ipod or something, he'll be able to pull it off again, if anything, a little better because he has to resing/resequence everything. Surprised he's not offering a reward the tightass
    Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
    "Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"

    Uh...

    [European]

    Harris may have been required to check his laptop by security - If I remember right, we had to check all electronics last time I was in the UK. .

    Heathrow's Terminal 5 has just opened, and it was biblically disastrous. Millions of quids worth of luggage has gone missing, flights were cancelled all over. They still haven't sorted it out, the guy in charge will probably get the chop for it. So at the very least, that part's not his fault, his laptop would have been lost by the handlers rather than his own negligence. There's a chance it could be recovered eventually.

    richard d james is far too intelligent to ever use an Ipod. he's the biggest audiophile in the world. come the fuck on.
    he DID, however, leave a portable media player with an album on it on a very long flight. not a rumor.
    but please, PLEASE, don't suggest he ever wanted his album encoded in apple's awful codecs.

    terminal 5 was a disaster.

    but that doesn't excuse him from not backing up his work.
