I keep seeing this news-byte posted with an image of a music cassette tape, which is misleading. This development is almost entirely in the data-storage space, and will likely be used in a format more like an LTO cartridge.

Basically, don’t expect your next high-end stereo to have a tape player, unless you’re into that retro-thing.

With the teaser that Daft Punk’s been playing at Coachella, it wouldn’t surprise me if there’s an even more newsworthy event happening tomorrow night when Phoenix takes the stage.

Perhaps the postulating that Phoenix got the headliner because they couldn’t get Daft Punk were both onto something, and missing it simultaneously? What if they couldn’t get Daft Punk to headline, but they were up for a surprise appearance with Phoenix instead, and the organizers, of course knowing that, gave them the sole headlining slot on Saturday?

Personally, I like Death Cab a little more.

You’re not too far off:
It seems like her website audience is females 25 years and older, with a surprising 65+ block.

So this is basically her telling the internet to make more GIFs of her, right?

I remember watching a clip of Passion Pit live a few years ago, and they seemed to sound really really bad in a live setting. It makes sense, seeing as they had just experienced an extreme burst in popularity following the release of Manners, and were definately not used to playing such large venues all of a sudden.

But I take it they’ve seriously improved since then? I didn’t see any mention of out-of-pitch singing in this write-up.

Don’t you know punks only go to British resort towns in the off-seasons?

That had to be one gritty makeout.

Counted it: 14 if you count Parliament Funkadelic.
Coming in a close second is California, with 10.

It’s all about the Faygo.
