I'm avoiding reading the many pundits who seem to be straining to resist the reality of the Mueller report.

I read. I don't watch the news on TV. But if I wanted to laugh at these people in their ludicrous scrambling for dignity and a way to keep hating on Trump, I'd watch it on TV. I'd do what you can see Scott Adams doing in this video, watch them on TV and laugh at them. Look at their faces! They're so unhappy! But — maybe a bit like Trump himself, with his cheerful simple tweets this morning — I don't want to get bogged down in their dismal, entropic experience. It's too time-consuming. I watched ...

The Awkward Truth Behind Skip Rates

With the ubiquity of music access and a lack of any need for patience, the term "skip-rate" has crept into the modern music industry lexicon, and some new data behind why and when consumers are skipping songs (and thereby not generating revenue for the artist) has many in the industry concerned. _______________________ Guest post by James Shotwell of Haulix Think you have a hit song on your new album? Better make it track one. When you have access to everything all the time with...

Skip Rates: Why The First 30 Seconds Matter More Than Ever

With the album on the wane and attention spans shorter than ever, the first 30 seconds of of a song matter more than.  Not only do they need to capture the listener's attention, but in streaming, they determine if the songwriter is going to get paid at all.  Skip rates can make or break a song, a record or even an artist's career. On a practical level, royalties don't kick in until at least 30 seconds of a song have played. But in an era where data is driving A&R and marketing decisions ...

SXSW Film Review: ‘Boy Howdy! The Story of CREEM Magazine’

If Rolling Stone aspired (after somewhat “underground” beginnings) to be the Rolls Royce of rock magazines, CREEM was by contrast the Volkwagen band-van: pungent with reefer, speed sweat, and last night’s groupie action. The hubris that had it self-dubbed “America’s Only Rock ’n’ Roll Magazine” was strictly of a working-class, sex-drugs-and-you-know-what variety that ridiculed all […]

Democrats Need to Face the Truth about Ilhan Omar

AOC's Rolling Stone interview: portrait of a principled, shrewd, brilliant activist/politician

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Rolling Stone interview with Alex Morris paints a portrait of a politician and activist whose brilliance as a tactician is matched by an unwavering, uncompromising commitment to principle.

How 'Doom Patrol' turned an outlandish superhero team into DC Universe's latest hit TV series

DC Universe's "Doom Patrol" showrunner Jeremy Carver talked to Business Insider about bringing the weirdness of the comic book to the screen. " There was that element of weirdness and absurdity, but I was really taken by the pathos and heart beneath it all," Carver said. He added that the show had to have "equal or more weight" on the characters and their backstories as on the bizarre nature of the show. To say that DC's Doom Patrol is an unconventional superhero team is an understatement....

Watch the Last Time Peter Tork (RIP) & The Monkees Played Together During Their 1960s Heyday: It’s a Psychedelic Freakout

Peter Tork died yesterday at age 77. You might not have heard the news over the deafening alarms in your social media feeds lately. But a muted response is also noteworthy because of the way Tork’s fame imploded at the end of the sixties, at a time when he might have become the kind of rock star he and his fellow Monkees had proved they could become, all on their own, without the help of any studio trickery, thanks very much. The irony of making this bold statement with a feature film wa...

Does anyone else use Calibre to organize magazines?

I have some magazines in PDF format. I've been putting them in Calibre, but it just struck me that the way I do it is a bit repetitive: Title: Magazine Name - Date of Magazine Author: Magazine Publisher Series: Magazine Name Series Number: YYYY.MM [unless it has its own number, e.g. Rolling Stone] Publisher: Magazine Publisher I put the table of contents into the comments section, so that article titles and authors are searchable. Has anyone figured out a better way to handle this? :)
