Check Out Save Our Stages Fest, But Also Donate Closer To Home To Local Artists And Venues

October 16th, 2020

This weekend, YouTube and the National Independent Venue Association are doing an awesome thing for local music venues nationwide, and I’m sure many of you have heard about the star-studded Save Our Stages Fest. It’s the kind of huge, publicity-grabbing event that gets a ton of attention with people in markets across the country. Which is a good thing, because it’s for a good cause, and it needs to get in front of a large group of people to make that positive impact. I do not begrudge that at all, and I wholeheartedly encourage people to check it out, and any other event of that... Read More

Dave Chappelle’s Surprise Special 8:46 Is Searing And Necessary

June 16th, 2020

There’s nothing seemingly structured. There’s nothing seemingly rehearsed. And that’s PART of what makes Chapelle’s surprise special on YouTube, aptly entitled 8:46 (after both the amount of time George Floyd was choked to death on film, and a surprising detail about Chappelle’s own life) so searing and necessary. Like the movement itself and the 400+ years of oppression black humans have experienced, it is ragged and honest and brutal and unrefined. This dialogue Chappelle presents is something of this moment and something the world needs. It finds itself less stand up special... Read More

Metallica kicked off their Metallica Mondays series of free livestreams featuring pro-shot video from the band’s archives, last week. Up first was Metallica: Live at Slane Castle – June 8, 2019, filmed at the famed venue in Slane, Ireland last June. “While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance? Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it,” reads a note from the band announcing... Read More

The Evolution of Social Media, From BBS to Momo

February 28th, 2019

We hear the concerns all the time, “social media is ruining the world,” “children no longer interact face-to-face thanks to social media,” and the latest one, which can simply be referred to as the “Momo Challenge”. Merriam-Webster’s definition of ‘social media’ explains it plainly as, “forms of electronic communication through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages and other content.” While some may think social media is a new concept, with applications such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, Whatsapp and Twitter taking... Read More
