Max Giffin's insight:
I personally am a big fan of Spotify, and I think it's great that they've removed time limits. However it's not totally relevant to me since I've never had time restrictions on my account.

With Beats music kicking in, the streaming competition's getting tough!

Which brings the competitors to offer more listening time to their audience.

But what's in it for the artists and right holders?

Joanne Castillo's curator insight, January 19, 10:54 AM

As a consumer, I feel that it is great that there are no more time limits for Spotify.  I prefer Spotify over Pandora because of the sound quality; however, I still use Pandora because of the unlimited time limit.

Tait Stages - Linkin Park 'The Playground' (2013) [AXS TV]

LightingTrainer.COM provides free of charge access to stage lighting online training materials like videos, tutorials, manuals and more!
Max Giffin's insight:
This one is a video, not an article, yet it still serves the same purpose. It basically shows a Linkin Park show from the perspective of the stagehands and production workers. Mainly it talks about the stage. I learned a lot about how long it takes to build a stage like this and how intense it is.

Carnegie Hall Opening Gala Canceled Because of Stagehand Strike

Carnegie Hall Opening Gala Canceled Because of Stagehand Strike | Roadie News | Scoop.it
Wednesday’s opening night concert at Carnegie Hall was canceled because of a strike by its stagehands.
Max Giffin's insight:
I've been seeing the updates to this story a lot on Facebook, shared by other stagehands without an opinion attached. After reading the article, I feel that what they're asking is a little ridiculous. These stagehands already make significantly more money than most, and the education wing has a different mission. It's rather selfish that they should feel entitlement to those jobs.

4 Injured In Partial Stage Collapse At Schottenstein Center

4 Injured In Partial Stage Collapse At Schottenstein Center | Roadie News | Scoop.it
Firefighters and rescue crews were called to the Schottenstein Center early Friday morning on a report of a structure collapse.
Max Giffin's insight:
It's really scary to think how easily this can happen, especially because I plan to work around stages for years. I'm glad no one was hurt. Things like this remind me why setting up and breaking down concerts can be so taxing, ridged, and orderly. It's imperative to prevent accidents.

Hey, Stars, Be Nice to the Stagehands. You Might Need a Loan. - NYTimes.com

Hey, Stars, Be Nice to the Stagehands. You Might Need a Loan. - NYTimes.com | Roadie News | Scoop.it
Max Giffin's insight:
It's awesome to see that pursuing show production can lead to high paying steady jobs. Even though this mainly touched on theatre stagehands, I imagine it carries over to stagehands working on large music events and tours. By far this was the most enjoyable and informative article I read during this project.
