OK, is this the worst piece of music writing ever?

imo all “scientific” studies of pop music are bad because they’re all pretty much rooted in confirmation bias

one month passes...

i don't think this fits the thread perfectly but we need to talk about this

https://www.businessinsider.com/electric-guest-tour-north-america-mercedes-benz-sprinter-van-2020-3

How an LA band completed a tour around North America in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van

...

This means the duo — and the two other musicians who play with them while on tour — need to share the three-passenger row Sprinter while on the road.

While they're on the road, Taccone takes the back passenger row while Compton gets the middle. The two additional touring members get the front row directly behind the driver and passenger seats.

Business Insider, posting an ad thinly-disguised as an article? What is this world coming to?

unless i don't know something ... which is entirely possible.

i am only paying attn to twitter a little bit right now (work at a hospital and day job is, uh, very busy) but i couldn't quite tell if ppl were clowning the publication or the band. or both?

if it's not marked as ad content that's pretty silly.

the whole thing is silly.

but there are a lot of old punks on the timeline touting their '94 tour in a brokedown econoline and acting like they wouldn't have jumped through fire at a chance to tour in that van!

asa has written some of the lonely island’s music. he also co-wrote that big song by portugal the douchenozzle

the band too ephemeral to be a real nemesis

I think it was the timing more than anything, just with everything going on it seems even more vacuous and stupid

A colleague sent me a Business Insider link today, and it’s a “BI Prime” story (behind paywall) – which means he must actually subscribe(!?)

paid content articles are going to be a rich vein for literary analysis in about three years

one month passes...

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande teamed up for "Rain On Me," an upbeat dance track where each singer takes a turn with a verse. They also sing together on some of the choruses. https://t.co/eap8R2kl0p
