    Question of the day #7 - Yall are all In Trouble

    The thread title bugs me. The correct usage would be "All y'all in trouble."

    2020 Democratic Primary

    Day one of the next administration matters because while Trump has given notice, the US has not pulled out of the Paris accords. Biden can rescind our withdrawal. Trump will not.

    I have seen all kinds of sales at venues. CDs, vinyl, MP3 drives. Good acts get creative and know what their audience wants. Most of the art of surviving as a band these days is connecting to the audience in a direct way.

    2020 Democratic Primary

    I don't see every post these days (can't say I miss them, I just don't see them due to finally ignoring a bunch of people), but this one is in my feed, and worth commenting on. The entire point of the article is to de-legitimize the nomination because an outside candidate who spent no time over...

    DJs on air and in clubs sell a product. And that product is you. They sell time to advertisers and they sell watered down drinks in noisy clubs. And they do it using a combination of their personality, which they create, and their music, which someone else made. If they don't pay for music, they...

    Actual protest thread

    Columbus is under a curfew tonight. National Guard will be patrolling downtown. I have heard sirens all day (I am about a mile from the statehouse).

    Is there a magic money fountain for musicians? I've spoken to artists who get thousands of plays and downloads from Amazon, Google, Apple, and Spotify, and they never get a dime. And the streaming services definitely cut into sales. Concerts were a razor thin margin even before the pandemic...

    Trump Plans to attempt to "Regulate" Social Media

    Much of why we have Trump is the media failing its basic duty to research his claims in 2015-2016. Real reporting involves providing not just quotes but context, including pointing out variability false claims.

    Trump Plans to attempt to "Regulate" Social Media

    Facebook has brought in conservative-leaning "fact checkers" with no real experience in that area to balance the actual fact checkers.

    How COVID-19 is affecting society

    I will not be properly owned until they do it while driving 100 mph in their pickups. On a gravel road.

    2020 Democratic Primary

    I believe it came down to competence. With a dose of coalition building. As a Senator, Biden put in the work, traded votes, and made connections both inside the Democratic caucus and with outside allies in unions, trade groups, and interest groups. As Vice President, Biden was active and...

    All things Linux

    The last time I ran Linux as my main desktop was back when Windows XP was just out, and it ran like crap until SP3. I started with Suse and them moved to Slack because it was easier in Slack to start with the kernel install and build up, instead of find someone's installer package and remove...

    Question of the Day: You will be judged

    The better the coffee, the less I put in it. For gas station coffee, I put a shit ton of those weird creamer thingies in it. Any flavor will work. A good cold brewed coffee, it gets a warmed cup and nothing else in it.

    Nobody Cares: PRS

    There were a number of closed bridges in Columbus yesterday south of downtown where the Scioto and Olentangy rivers meet. Water was well above flood stage.
