So at $0.0000001 per play, that's a nice $100 royalty check for Noel!

It seems like this guy has been grinding and putting pieces in place just waiting for the big break the video gave him. He started a merch line in August and has been on Cameo since June. He's an embodiment of that adage that luck = opportunity + preparation.

October 14, 2020 on The Official Fleetwood Mac “Dreams” Skateboarder Halloween Costume Is Here
I give these guys (this guy?) credit for sticking with it and still knocking out some decent tunes after all these years. He did it all despite the dubious band name and a singing voice which has always been a bit of an acquired taste to put it mildly. There was a moment when it seemed like they could be the next Shins. That that never happened but he still carved out a respectable career. The records are a bit spotty but a double CD of their best stuff would be a great collection.

I mean the comment wasn't really about the quality of the music which is... fine? It's the trend where media (industry) pretend they aren't media and comment on media. It's not a huge deal here, it's much worse in political reporting.

Who's the phony here?: The ones who just count up the number of posts before a debut album? Or the ones that call out "the industry" while being the industry?

So this is perfectly fine and groovy but kind of sounds like everything else today. What's the point in a personal vanity label if they aren't going to take some chances?

I was worried we weren't going to get to revisit Gordy's unrelated crimes in this piece, but Stereogum did not disappoint and closed this fun story on that sour note.

This write up undersells a bit just how great these 2 songs really are. The production is so on point, the new layered vocals taking her up even another notch.

That's Daru Jones killing it on the drums. Best live hip hop drummer in the game and he's been behind Jack for a little while now. There really is no going back to Meg at this point.

It defies logic (ha), but some think cards are actually viable investment vehicles if purchases and sales are timed right. Gary Vee is a big believer in sports card investments these days.

I love them but their well known singles probably are their very best songs. That said, all their records are worth while, particularly Low-life and Technique.

I don't even know who I'm replying to but have you all considered that it's possible and perhaps even likely that Jack played most if not all the drums on the recordings? It's been speculated before.

I know it's a feel good story and all, but there's nothing good about drinking this much sugar. It's a sure ticket to type 2 diabetes and there's no bang for your buck on insulin. A zero sugar beverage brand should make him a bigger offer to be their spokesperson.

It's amusing how public health types anthropomorphize virus particles, like they're either dumb or smart, have minds and movements of their own. Also the sarcastic tone in his statement that drawing a mask on his face is exactly the same as a mesh mask. Not sure how helpful that is.

They knew what they were doing by teasing it vaguely to get you to tune in. Instead of new music, we get celeb heads in Zoom boxes with an obvious point. Also the wording of "make your vote count" is a bit curious. All one can do is vote. The counting is out of our hands.

Yeah, I'm being snarky. Just seems highly unlikely that something as unique as the queen of pop singing on a riot grrl style album would get lost if it happened. There would be dub tapes beyond the masters floating around. (And we would have heard about it before she had a book to sell.) This is almost like if Kurt Cobain made a R&B album.

Hold on a second, Dana Jon Chapelle. Can you clarify: "A lot of times, she’d write a song out and lyrically she’d be done in 10, 15 minutes. She’d sit there on a pad and knock out lyrics or ideas and then finish them another day." So is the song done in 10, 15 minutes OR did she finish them another day?! And to doubting James: obviously Mariah was sent an early advance of the Sleater-Kinney debut so she had time to digest it and absorb its influence well before its street release. But it's really too bad they somehow cannot find the tapes that have lead vocals by the biggest selling most famous singer on the planet at the time. Darn!

There's surely a German portmanteau for this exact situation. Also, the variation when the insufferable person is attractive, so the willingness to listen to their spiel increases.

I can't decide if this makes me want to dust off my Switch and get back into it or sell it and be done with it forever. It's harder and harder to justify gaming when you can fire up a $10 app and make some professional sounding beats and loops or whatever and actually have a product at the end.
