Say Goodbye to Internet Radio

Have you been enjoying some of the thousands of radio stations available on the Internet? Well, listen while you can. Their days are numbered.

The Copyright Royalty Board has increased — drastically, brutally increased — the royalty fees that Internet radio stations will have to pay. The Board’s decision was the result of intense arm-twisting by those anal retentive douchebags at the Recording Industry Association of America.

The entire royalty structure has been changed. In addition to the fee itself going way up, radio stations will have to pay this fee per performance (each song played), and this fee will be multiplied by the estimated number of listeners. If a station averages 500 listeners, this station will be paying more than $50 for every song played (the performance fee of eleven cents multiplied by 500). And this fee is going to keep going up and up and up every year.

Bagh’dads’ gonna kill me

The song is from Richard Thompson. Its a good anti-war song that seemed perfect for creating a video. The song is written from the ‘grunt’s’ perspective. RawStory has an article up about him and his new song which will be released on his next album in May entitled “Sweet Warrior”.

Saturdays march on DC and Palm Springs’

My friend in Palm Springs,who goes by Ms. Liberty was kind enough to lend me some of the pics from there as well, since my health kept me from participating in the LA march today. DC had hundreds of thousands in attendance. PS had young and old, rich and poor. Patriots all, from coast to coast. Good writeup at WaPo on the DC march and speakers. Monday they invade the offices of Congress!

James Brown

There have already been a lot of posts about James Brown’s death, but this is just too much of a milestone. He was always one of those larger-than-life personalities that you just can’t imagine not being on the music charts or in the headlines.

I haven’t listened to much of his music during the past few decades, but he had some dynamite songs in the mid-’60s. If I had to pick any favorite songs of his, they’d be “Ain’t That A Groove” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” He had much bigger hits than that, but those two songs really struck a chord.

No matter what kind of music you listen to (unless it’s country, bluegrass or polka), it was influenced by James Brown. Sly Stone is often credited with pioneering the funk/soul/rock sounds of the late ’60s/early ‘70s, but he was influenced by James Brown. He also paved the way for a lot of jazz-fusion albums from the ‘70s (Miles Davis, Weather Report).

Let me get this straight, Kenneth Lay takes a dirt nap and all charges are dropped against him and the Feds close the case but a guy that was downloading music starts pushing up daisies and the RIAA decides to go after the kids? WTF?
