Morrissey Parts Ways With Another Record Label, BMG

After many years of disconcerting and racist-leaning statements by Morrissey, BMG, his label for the past three albums, has parted company with the singer. In a statement shared on his website, Morrissey cited the label’s “new plans for ‘diversity'” as being the cause of the split. “BMG Records have dropped Morrissey,” the statement, which alternates between third […]

Morrissey Dropped By Label, Blames Diversity Initiative

Everyone’s sick of Morrissey, including his label. The once-iconic singer has spent the last couple years torpedoing his reputation and career alike, tarnishing the legacy of his work by leaning into his most reactionary, racist takes. Now, his label BMG has decided to cut ties, and, naturally, Morrissey’s camp blames a new “diversity” initiative. The news comes from Morrissey’s official website, which is increasingly reading like the work of a conspiracy-driven right-wing nutjob. (Seemingly i...

Will reform of quirky approach to jury sentencing greatly impact Virginia's criminal justice system?

A helpful reader reminded me that I had forgotten to blog about a recent significant change in sentencing procedure in Virginia, which is effectively explained in this local article from a few weeks ago headlined "Virginia lawmakers vote to reform 224-year-old jury sentencing law."  Here are the basics: Virginia lawmakers passed a closely watched bill Friday aimed at ensuring people can exercise their right to a jury trial without risking much steeper punishments. Criminal justice reform advoca...

Coming-of-Age Set to The Smiths - 'The More You Ignore Me' Trailer

"It was like you were singing… just to me." Mental illness, Morrissey and guinea pigs. Vega Baby US has released a new trailer for the indie dark comedy coming-of-age film The More You Ignore Me, a spunky 80s flick from England that already opened there a few years ago. Adapted from Jo Brand's novel and set to the songs of The Smiths, The More You Ignore Me is a darkly funny coming-of-age story of dysfunctional family life in the 1980s. The film focuses on Gina, a young mother, whose efforts...

Jets NHL Draft Days Ranked

The Winnipeg Jets have always stressed the importance of their “draft and develop” strategy: that is, building a contender through patience, deft selection, and molding of promising youngsters into top talent rather than through finagling blockbuster trades for established elites. Through the draft is how Jets’ general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has transformed, in less than a decade, a terrible Atlanta Thrashers team — whose leadership was utterly incompetent at the draft table and selected ...

Final Stat Pack for October Term 2019

A Supreme Court term unlike any other has finally come to an end. In March, some observers thought the term would end early after the court shut its doors and postponed oral arguments — the first time since the 1919 Spanish Flu outbreak that the court closed due to a pandemic. Instead, the term lasted longer than usual, extending well into July for the first time in decades. And in May, the court heard remote arguments over the telephone with a public live audio feed for the first time ever. Tho...

Wednesday: What’s Hot on CanLII

Each Wednesday we tell you which three English-language cases and which French-language case have been the most viewed* on CanLII and we give you a small sense of what the cases are about. For this last week: 1. R. v. Theriault, 2020 ONSC 3317 (CanLII) [19] I am also mindful that there is a distinction between credibility and reliability. Credibility relates to the honesty of the witness’ testimony. Reliability relates to the accuracy of the witness’ testimony which engages a consideration of th...

When 8-year-olds redesign famous band tees

Emily aka Angsty X tried to teach her 8-year old how to use Photoshop. She figured that the best way to do this was to introduce her to a few simple manipulation techniques, and let her daughter instruct her on how to change them (it takes a little while to get the hang of that magic wand tool). They decided to start with band t-shirts, because mom wears a lot of them.  There was one shirt that Emily used to wear more often, but she told her daughter that she didn't like one of the people on it ...

Here's how producers on 'The Voice' used Microsoft products to produce the live singing show remotely when the coronavirus pandemic threatened to halt production mid-season (MSFT)

When shelter-in-place mandates forced people to stay home, live singing show "The Voice" turned to Microsoft tools to continue production on its live shows remotely.  Audrey Morrissey, an executive producer on the show said there were two challenges: figuring out how to tape things like performances and coaching sessions when everyone was separated and figuring out how to edit and broadcast a live show remotely.  Her team used Surface tablets to capture and mix audio and video in real-time, wh...

An Archive of 1,000 “Peel Sessions” Available Online: Hear David Bowie, Bob Marley, Elvis Costello & Others Play in the Studio of Legendary BBC DJ John Peel

Before he became the most influential music broadcaster of all time on the BBC, John Peel had to become John Peel. Born and raised in England, he spent a stretch of his early twenties in the United States, working for a cotton producer (his father's industry), selling insurance, and writing punchcard computer programs before finding his way onto the airwaves. Hosting work in such locales as Dallas, Oklahoma City, and San Bernardino primed him to return to his homeland and take his radio ...

Jet Getting Healthy at the Perfect Time

The Winnipeg Jets — currently in possession of the Western Conference’s second wild card spot — are receiving a raft of reinforcements for their battles down the stretch, and they couldn’t have come at a better time. An Influx of Forwards The Jets’ injured reserve list has been a long and exhausting read for most of the season. They’ve lost more than 300 man-games to injury, eighth-most in the NHL, and two-thirds of them have been up front. #NHLJets current injury list as they push...

Darnell Nurse Wants $8 Million: Time to Move Him?

The Edmonton Oilers certainly don’t want to lose Darnell Nurse. But, if a recent report from the Edmonton Journal’s Jim Matheson is correct, the top-four defenseman could want too rich a contract for the Oilers blood. Matheson is reporting that Nurse’s reps have talked to the Oilers, more specifically GM Ken Holland, and let them know they are using Jacob Trouba’s recent contract with the New York Rangers as a comparable. If so, that means Nurse is seeking right around $8 million per season ...

The Winnipeg Players On The News Dustin Byfuglien May Have Played His Last Game For The Jets

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, The news that Byfuglien has likely played his last game with the team drew a mixture of disappointment and indifference with former teammates. The latter sentiment applied to forward Andrew Copp, who called the topic a “media-driven talking point.” “It was out of sight, out of mind, honestly,” Copp said. “We have so much to worry about within the group that’s here. It wasn’t anything I thought of, or many of the guys in here were thinking abo...

We at Stereogum have not had a lot to say about masked cowboy enigma Orville Peck. I'm not sure why, exactly. Seemed gimmicky, maybe?

Jets Right to Be Angry About Officiating

The Winnipeg Jets and their fans are right to be rankled by rotten officiating that influenced the result of their latest game against the Minnesota Wild. Inconsistent Calls Abound, Confound The first play the Jets took issue with was a third-period non-call that led to the Wild’s game-tying goal. Defenseman Josh Morrissey took a clear hit from behind from Kevin Fiala, who saw the alternate captain’s numbers the whole way but drove him into the boards anyway. Kevin Fiala boarded Jo...

Jets’ 3 Stars of the Week: Dec. 12-18

It was one of the worst weeks the Winnipeg Jets have had in quite some time, going 1-2 and getting absolutely dominated in their most recent game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The defensive zone breakdowns the team has been having problems with are starting to rear their heads a lot more as of late. The Jets have given up 14 goals in their last three games and goaltender Connor Hellebuyck is seeing his numbers slowly dip. That is not to say the goals against are solely his fault – ...
