This Week in Photography: East of the Mississippi

  Part 1: The Intro I was wondering what to write about this morning. No strong pull in any direction. (Which is rare.) So I dropped into a kneeling-Japanese-meditation-pose I learned in Aikido. I calmed my mind, focused on my breathing, and at first, tried to figure out what my psyche was interested in. The last few stories from London? A new book from the pile? Anything about Chicago? But I quieted those thoughts, because why else meditate? After a few minutes, I opened my eyes, and the first ...

Record labels are still ripping off artists…and getting away with it

A couple of weeks ago I received an email from an A&R person at a global dance music label. It was a pretty standard email along the lines of “hey we like your song, would you be interested in licensing it to us?” which I’ve received before and usually they amount to nothing. This often happens when A&R’s use those online tools we all know and love that show when a song is picking up traction in Spotify playlists in particular. Anyway I replied saying that I’m always open to collaborations as I ...

A Growing Number of Astrophysicists Are Leaving Academia To Work For Tech Startups
