Why it is better to believe a potential victim than a potential rapist #metoo *Trigger Warning*


This story was written by spacex. This story is meant to make you stop and look at something from another's point of view. Please don't shame a victim for any reason. Like, seriously what kind of walking living excrement are we when we tell a victim they should be ashamed of something that was forced …

Music Monday: Despite Pandemic, 2020 Was a Good Year for the Music Industry


It was a great year for those that used the tools available i.e.: internet!

Borden's Blather

Not every industry struggled in 2020.

Global music sales grew for the sixth consecutive year in 2020, with total revenues rising 7.4% to $21.6 billion, according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry’s (IFPI) “Global Music Report 2021.”

Music industry sales are now close to its all time high (at least based on the past 20 years) when the recorded music industry revenues totaled $23.6 billion in 2001. As a result of piracy and declining physical sales, the market bottomed out at $14 billion in 2014.

The key to growth in 2020 was streaming music, with total streaming subscription revenues (paid and ad-supported) up 19.9% to $13.4 billion. Streaming’s share of global music sales now stands at 62%.

There are 443 million paid subscribers for streaming music services (count me as one of those, thanks to Spotify). There was an 18.5% rise in streaming subscription revenues, which totaled $9.9…

Shopping for vinyl


Awesome!

Richard Lakin's Blog

Had a few bargains in the town charity shops and record shop.

The Associates

In Oxfam I picked up The Associates’ Sulk album. I’ve always been a huge fan of Billy Mackenzie’s voice.

The Teardrop Explodes’ Kilimanjaro

As it was Staffordshire Day yesterday it was appropriate I picked an album by one of my home county’s famous sons Julian Cope. I love this album and was delighted to find it had just come in to Double Double Good Music Emporium.

TTD

Finally I always enjoyed this album and I’m old enough to have bought it first time round on tape.

What is interesting is to see the vogue for vinyl means CDs are suddenly being thrown out. There are piles of them at 99p each or even 2 or 3 for a pound. I love the sound and feel of vinyl and the space and love given over to the…

This Week in Vinyl: How do I pick vinyl?


Great article, I am going to share this one!

Vertical Separation

Someone asked me recently what I look for when I buy records. This is a great question. Being a relatively new vinyl addict, I’ve put a fair bit of thought into how to build a thoughtful, well rounded record collection.

I like to think of listening to music on vinyl as something of a return to simpler times. A way to be engaged with the music that you love in a more tangible and connected way. An excuse to put down your phone and be unplugged from the digital world.

When searching for a new record, the first thing I’m looking for is a sentimental connection. Does this record or this band mean something to me? And if that’s the case, can it be found in an original or vintage pressing? And of course, can I reasonably afford that? It doesn’t necessarily have to be vintage, but I think those…

Vinyl Addiction Causes a Problem


Very nice article! I am going to share it if you don’t mind?

The Flippant, Comic, and Serious

Matt Lambert Hilltop Hoods

He went on a trip collecting vinyl
Filled up his case then when fin
On returning to Australia, the customs
Said sorry, we can’t let you in

Adelaide Hills Hood Matt Lambert came home with a suitcase full of 70’s vinyl records. They wouldn’t let him in as they had detected traces of cocaine. Turns out the records had been used to chop up cocaine, traces which were still present decades later.. They eventually did let him in.
