Music Sales Up… Finally? Huh? What?

POSTED ON February 26th  - POSTED IN site

Talk About Misleading Headlines!

I happened across an AP news article which, paraphrasing so that we don’t get sued, claimed that music sales are finally inching up… for the first time since 1999. (I know I am taking a chance even using “1999” for Prince and the Universal Goons may still be lurking out there, just waiting for another opportunity to swoop down and swing their IP sword of death.) Fortunately, they provided a link to the source.  It is a report from the IFPI which is short for the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.  While not the RIAA, it is a similar such organization certainly spouting similar rhetoric with this report.

I have been aware that many associations in the music and film industry are not the best at math and statistics.  I have often written about how the legal system is skewed by political favoritism regarding IP, how the industry skews law enforcement and, recently, their further adventures on the road less logical.

2012.06.08 – Stupid As Charged

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of three stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird or in some other manner are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode..; You are free to go; wait; you stole our handcuffs, When shoplifting don’t forget the baby, and When pregnant the best plan is to be drunk, and get pierced.

We are also pleased to have Knowles join us for this episode.  So strap on your head phones, check your funny bone and get ready to hear about some less than intelligent crooks.

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of four stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird, or in some other way are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; stupidity even after conviction, sorry officer I am in hurry I need to sell my weed, when mailing weed check the address and if your dope is hacked dial 911.

2011 Indie Nation Impromptu Christmas Party

Play

Greetings and Happy Christmas Listeners,

Welcome to our first annual Christmas party, held both on-line and in the Cold Crank Studio in Cleveland, Ohio. At one point in time during this three and a half hour live stream almost every member of the staff was able to join us.

The party thought started rather impromptu when some of us locally got together to do some Christmas IDs for the stream. Then Cleta got busy at geekshed and got in touch with a few of the other regulars. Regrettably we did not manage to contact everyone due to the impromptu nature of it. So if you didn’t get and invite, don’t be offended, that is just the way it worked out this time.
