Re: SoundCloud offers subscription service

I was just responding to the Boys Noise post and random copyright notices. YouTube depended on external audio ID and hadn't really figured out how to positively identify label's content vs otherwise and was trigger happy to shut down anything that "may be" claimed by the labels. At SFL Austin they w...

Re: Glowing and effusive per usual (Incandescent reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene - typical BSS brilliance setting a groove, a moving bridge and then rocking the chorus. CazaroTaro - cute and spunky. Cookie Blue - beautiful. more dynamic than the simple arrangement lets on. Cory Ag - again. I like that the guitar solos are so understated, but I find the apat...

Re: SoundCloud offers subscription service

YouTube had a rocky start as well, then got their act <sortof> together. It's about setting reasonable expectations and providing a reasonable response process. The reality is they will get hit from all sides so they need to scale their operations accordingly. You'd think by now any new service woul...

GENIUS annotations

I annotated my lyrics for Incandescent in the SF lyric thread using the GENIUS Chrome extension, which rocks all sorts of everything everywhere. I thought it would be really fun to see inside peoples' lyrics. Except mine, which this week offer nothing necessarily trancidental. Just install http://ge...

Re: Beware of sexual cannibalism (Praying Mantis prefight)

We'd capture praying mantis in VT when I was a kid and just stare at them. Totally creepy, yet lovable creatures. Also my favourite musical sidekick, on Space Ghost.

Yay! Word up and power to you, Fluffy. I've been hearing Bowie's Changes a lot lately...coincidence? (not the "changes" part specifically, but the "Don't tell them to grow up and out of it" part)

Re: Songfight Live 2016 Venue Selection

Duh, or whatever the proper positive equivalent is.

There's good rehearsal space near the Sidewalk (we need to book soon).
Are we thinking another Manhattan venue or Brooklyn? And, do other boroughs even count?

Re: Handing someone an album in 2016

Considering the time and effort required to make CDs at home $2 for a USB is cheap, no?
Drag and drop. No optical drive required (I haven't had one for years). Fuck album art (forgive me father for I have sinned).

Actually, business cards with a URL makes a lot more sense.

Re: Spotify Royalty discussion

Back in the 90s folks were pushing for a pennies-per surcharge on blank media, the revenue from which would have dwarfed the industry's best case scenarios and essentially make music free while paying substantially more to artists and enabling tremendous innovation in distribution and consumption.

Re: Songfight Live PDX: Wiccans and Chickens Aug 14 & 15 20

So I arrive 11:30 tonight and apparently only made housing plans starting tomorrow. Is there a couch I can crash on? Or recommended cheap motel?

Also, if late night beer consumption is happening...where?
