“Are these experiences an authentic way of experiencing live music? Or do they indicate a transition towards a dystopian cultural milieu? In this scenario, we might end up losing sight of the multi-sensory and collective aspects of live music and experience it instead alone at home through a VR headset or a similar technological device.” – The Conversation

Singer Jaguar Wright Says Mary J. Blige is a Closeted Lesbian: “And If I’m Lying, Sue Me!”

My half-deaf self can’t tell anymore.) because you know I’m a sucker for strings of all sorts. I love how the upbeat words of the original are brought in closer to the music, which here is a finely tuned machine grinding away. I mean…listen to that bass guitar. It could take your face off.
