Bootlegs on Music Streaming Gaming the System

there are people putting up bootleg and demo recordings of popular artists on digital services and making money from it in the process. In some cases they even uploading fake recordings which somehow manage to get onto the artists homepage.

Actually that homepage part crap needs to be sorted by Apple and Spotify quickly because how the fuck can you fuck that up. Too much reliance on algorithms and not enough human eyes and ears.

I got a song in my Spotify Release Radar from Tommy Lee and instead of seeing the aged, white tattooed T-Bone, I see a young black rapper. Same deal with names like Dio, Ratt, Rush, Badlands, UFO, Keel, Vandenberg, Cinderella, Icon, KISS and Journey.

The Art of Blogging

Is this you?

After hours and hours of working on interesting topics for your blog, you get little to no results. It’s as if you’re releasing said posts into the cold and dark vacuum of outer space.

And then, sick and tired of working your heart out at creating the best post ever written, you throw out some random idea that popped into your head – and the comments go wild.

To the youth in our society, play is an opportunity to spend time with friends and family in the beautiful environment encapsulating us and to possibly improve our athletic abilities. Comparing these two mindsets, the older generations may disregard play as just having fun with no real value or importance in our lives, but I believe the youth have the right idea in mind when it comes to play, as it is actually physically and mentally essential in order to live a happy, healthy, and extraordinary life.

If you live along the Atlantic Coast of Florida, your life is interrupted for eight months every year.  Any condo, house or trailer within walking distance of a beach lives under a strict ordinance.  Florida’s state Game and Wild Life Department restricts outdoor landscaping lights of any kind.  If you are wondering why, this law has been enacted to save the lives of future sea turtles.  During the hatching process, lights draw the attention of newly born turtles.  To ensure baby sea turtles make it back to the ocean, local authorities constantly warn residence about outdoor lighting.  While hatchings usually don’t occur until May, the state of Florida has taken extreme measures for eight months to save the lives of baby sea turtles.
