Epic Noel Gallagher
"There are no characters left in the music business," he said. "When we first started going there was a healthy percentage of people, and we were all dirt-kickers from council estates, and we all couldn’t believe our luck that we were at the Brits. You go in now and everybody is a careerist. It’s very corporate, and you know what I’ve actually seen people doing at the Brits? Eating. I saw the drummer from Muse (http://www.nme.com/artists/muse) smoking an electronic cigarette. A cigarette with a battery in. I had to say to him: ‘Really? Really? Is that where you are at? Do me a favour, mate, either have a proper one outside, or don’t have one.’ It lit up green when he had a drag of it. Nonsense. He said that immortal line – ‘Oh you know how it is, mate’. And I said ‘I’m sorry, mate, I actually don’t.’"

Wheelchair guy asked to stand up, gets awkward real fast. (http://www.tmz.com/2014/09/14/kanye-west-concert-wheelchair-video-stand-up-awkward/)

Kanye wines about being a victim in this whole story. (http://www.tmz.com/2014/09/15/kanye-west-im-not-apologizing-for-wheelchair-mixup-im-the-victim/)

I mean, if you don't want to apologize that's one thing but to bring that story up at your next show and call yourself a victim? I thought he was a pretentious jerk after the first video, now he's a total asshole.

http://www.theguardian.com/music/2014/oct/20/platinum-album-sales-2014-expected-us-frozen

Beat me to it.

Digital sales have never been able to cover the short left by album sales.
Now that Digital has peaked and albums are selling even less today, the industry is left wondering what to do next.
Talk about an industry with a complete lack of visionaries.

On the other hand, there's no easy solution.
In an economy where every dollar counts, the consumer has an option (though illegal) to obtain a product for free without real consequences, what can you really do about it?

The Black Crowes have split up (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/black-crowes-rich-robinson-band-has-broken-up-20150115). Back in 2001 when they were on tour with Oasis they played in Noblesville (outside of Indianapolis) on a Friday, and I always thought it would have been cool to skip school to see it. I still have regrets about that. Awesome band.

Well that wasn't entirely unexpected based on previous comments over the past year. Unfortunate, nonetheless. Still, they lasted 25 years. That's a lot longer than most bands go without any breakup. Perhaps they'll get their shit together someday.

I had to share this because it is unintentionally hilarious.

So, Scott Weiland is once again forming another (super?) group. They're called...wait for it...Art of Anarchy.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/01/scott-weiland-forms-new-supergroup-with-guns-n-roses-and-disturbed-members/

But that's not the part that's hilarious. The part that's hilarious is the almost Spinal Tap level of absurdity that is the press release. Behold:


The band credits Vince Votta with coming up with the name, apparently coined because it had to be 'extreme, uncompromising, and make a bold statement.

The PR says the band will deliver 'over-the-top songs that break rock music boundaries with an all-or-nothing attitude.'

They’ll break all the rules and leave you wanting more Anarchy!"

Yeah, bro! Your mom will HATE this! Play it loud and play it proud and rock on 'till the break of dawn, yo!

I can't believe he's doing exactly what he did ten years ago almost to the day. What a fucking prick.

I love Angels & Airwaves, and Hoppus and Barker seemed unnecessarily bitter way back in '05, but this time it seems completely justified. They did a follow-up interview (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/blink-182s-hoppus-barker-blast-ungrateful-disingenuous-tom-delonge-20150126) with Rolling Stone a little while ago that sheds more light on it. This is going to be a mess.

Wait till you hear how generic anarchy sounds, then... The press release seems like a scathing pamphlet compared to the actual music...
From what I've read, Weiland seems very eager to mention he's not part of the band, he just sings in it.

I'm not a fan of Blink either though I do like some of their songs. Yeah, that guy is a fucking prick. You have 2 guys in the band that really want to do this and then this guy says "we need a record deal" because he didn't want to spend money on making a record. Fuck him!

“Mix all ingredients in a large bowl,” the rider states, “careful not to mush the avocados too much.” It goes on: “We want it chunky. Once properly mixed and tested, add the pits into the guacamole and even out the top with a spoon or spatula. Add ½ lime to the top later so you cover more of the surface with the juice (The pits and lime will keep it from browning prematurely.) Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until served. Please don’t make it too early before it’s served. We’d love to have it around 5 pm.”
