I don't throw around the word 'game changer' much. In fact, I don't think I've ever thrown it around. But if I were to use it for the first time, I would feel pretty comfortable using it in a post about the Fan Accounts that Bandcamp just launched .
Rob Tacey's insight:

Ooooh!  Bandcamp just made music discovery more interesting.  I'm a fan of Bandcamp and have an account, but I don't really use it to find music (rather I zip in to grab tunes I've found elsewhere.  This new thing is probably going to change that a bitsy.

BGWex: Indie rock is dead is the most ridiculous statement I've heard in a long time.
Rob Tacey's insight:

This one is a bit misleading.  It's more about is it still possible for corporations to cash in on indie rock (or indie music at all).  Well, there's stats that say that indie music as a whole grabbed 32% of the pie in 2012 and that makes tons of sense.  There's so much of it now that whilst it looks like a trickle to each individual there's so many folks benefiting from the ease of distribution and exposure (so easy, in fact, that it's like being in a crowded room trying to find good stuff).  

 

Anyway, I don't think it's dead.  We'll keep loving good music no matter what label you put on it.

Andy Lykens is a music branding and marketing specialist for indie music publisher Imagem Music. He blogs at andylykens.com.
Rob Tacey's insight:

Lots of chatter out there about how to make money as a musician.  I thought this article does a superb job of pointing out that there's lots of ways (other than insane licencing schemes for internet broadcasting) to monetize tunes.

 

I subscribe to the Tracks and Fields email list and they're frequently looking for assorted styles of rock/pop music for commericals, film and other mediums.  Certainly worth a look see.

Live streaming at concerts and festivals could result in a decrease in revenue stream across the board, including ticket sales, vendors, etc.

Dorky and music-y?  Faboo!

 

I have to admit I've never really watched Dr. Who.  I made it through four or five episodes of the new one but I don't see the appeal.  It is slick, though, when an iconic show's soundtrack is acknowledged as being important.

Tomorrow Tom Hooper’s film of Les Misérables is released. It seems sure to be popular. Lots of reviewers are over the moon about it.

"How could anybody who loves great music or true drama possibly enjoy the pap versions of them to be found in the average musical?" is a great quote.  Just great.

Mexican band The Plastics Revolution created its latest music video with 1,905 Instagram photos and no video.
Rob Tacey's insight:

Oh, this is pretty slick.  The song's kinda catchy but the notion of creating a video using only Instagram photos is spiffy - and after my brief foray into creating video I imagine it'd be a real bear.  Points for a cool concept.

I have actually been kind of surprised at how tricksy it is to set up a cohesive media library for a home.  It'd be kind of neat to look at this product a little bit more and see if it'll address the various complexities:  Multiple users, single library, multiple media types, nodes, etc.
