The Decline of New Music

Well Damn —just do it for the love because we have too many clones as is

Wendy Day

By, Bob Lefsetz

This story has been buzzing for months, but I point you to a recent article on the decline of new music in the United States:

“It’s Official: New Music Is Shrinking In Popularity In The United States”:

Is new music not as good?

I’d argue that case, but that is not what is happening here. We’ve reached the tipping point, YOU JUST CAN’T REACH PEOPLE ANYMORE!

The music business is the canary in the coal mine. It’s where disruption happens first. What happens in the music business ultimately spreads to other industries. So what is happening here is there’s a plethora of product and the means of promoting that product has become ever less efficient and diverse.

TGDC News: Watch “Deadpool” Unrated, Very NSFW Movie Trailer



Marvel Studios is on a stellar run with its movie superhero universe. From X-Men to Spider-Man to Guardians of the Galaxy to the forthcoming Fantastic 4 reboot, DC can only hope to catch up at this point.

Next year, the momentum will momentarily shift from the mainstream, “pop” heroes when everyone’s favorite asshole finally hits the silver screen. & this looks like the movie Deadpool fans have been literally waiting years to see.

Manhood Mondays: The Free Feeling Of Being “Almost 40”



So I found another gray hair this morning. In my beard. That makes number two. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t go all out trying to pluck it. But just as I got a decent fingernail grip on the little bastard, I glanced up, saw its older brother, and gave up. I’ll just shave later.

This coming March, of 2016 (God willing I make it in this city), I will turn 40 years old. I’m in just as much shock and awe as you, trust me. Back in my teen years, when I thought I was important and invincible (which I still think I am a little of both), I couldn’t imagine living four decades on this planet.
