i was at Mobile Content World this week. it was notable because the music (and to a lesser part, film and tv) industry representatives seem to have accepted that drm is seen as a roadblock to the swarm, and the swarm simply goes around it. so they're putting a lot of effort into finding ways to embrace the swarm and pick its pocket at the same time.

The Mtv Xbox thing was AMAZINGly underwhelming.  It looks ok, and the native wireless is nice but the show was pretty stupid and uninformative and the mere mention of Microsoft's whole "Live Marketplace" bullshit just makes my skin crawl.

SUNS IS LOSE IN 6 GAMES.


The Mtv Xbox thing was AMAZINGly underwhelming.


You watched that?  Gay for Frodo?

On a more serious note, though I didn't watch that show I'm not surprised it was underwhelming.  As I've said before I'm a big Xbox fan, but I think Microsoft is handling everything related to the "Xbox 360" in the most horrible way possible.  Could they really be this dumb, or do they want a failure for tax reasons?

I didn't ask for a shrink, that must've been somebody else.  Also, that pudding isn't mine.  Also, I'm wearing this suit today because I had a very important meeting this morning.  And I don't have a crying problem.

Not really. Things are coming to a point now, but in general, authorities are valuing citizen privacy over copyright infringement, meaning there'll be no charges against ordinary people. Also, the police feel there are better things to do than to chase "internet pirates."

I don't expect TPB.org to fold because of legal hassles, I expect them to fold because of traffic. Already I see lots of MySQL errors everytime I visit.

And why can't they take the time to just translate the entire site? It's even worse that often all the comments for a torrent are in swedish. Great help that is.
I wish I could get into torrentbytes.net, but the signup is locked all the time.

NIN was pretty fun.  He did all the classics.  Trent's older and obviously been working out.  His frame isn't that of the skinny guy jumping around in fishnets of old.  He still throws stuff around stage and knocks over amps.

It was odd being at this show.  I felt kind of old.  I hadn't really thought about the lyrics for NIN songs in a long time, and it was funny because I suddenly realized how subversive it all must have seemed to my parents.  I didn't take it that seriously then, but I take it even less seriously now, and laughed at the idea that we were all in the concert worshipping our satanic rock and roll.

There was even a fundy out front of the concert handing out Chick Tracts.

It's funny listening to bands like NIN with the benefit of hindsight and (I'd like to think) maturity. What seemed at the time like really insightful lyrics now just come across as being shallow and whiny and no more insightful than any of the crap that I wrote when I was a teenager.

from the perspective of the teenage you, NIN was entertaining and insightful.  the older, hipper, jaded you doesn't find it insightful at all.  does that really mean it was never any good, or does it simply mean you've changed?

I think that's why the older I get the more I appreciate GOOD lyrics. Because most bands of my youth just aren't as good as I thought they were. Or sometimes, when you finally pay attention, you realize the song doesn't make a shitload of sense, or is really about something totally different that what you thought.

I think for most people in general, its the sound of the music, the sound of the singer singing, the sound of the lyrics, and then the actual lyrics.  When you get older, then sometimes, the actual lyrics start moving up in importance. Sometimes.

Leslie:

I still like NIN - that hasn't changed. It's just my attitude to the lyrics that's changed and that's largely because I'm older and more at ease with myself. I also think that I'm listening to the songs more dispassionately now - I've less emotional investment in them - so I'm probably judging them from a more objective place now. I think that for me, if Reznor's lyrics were more elegant then they might have stood up longer. I mean, they're just so earnest; there's no self-deprecating humour, no wry observation, no wit to them. So whereas I can still find some enjoyment in, say, a Green Day song - even though I don't necessarily identify with the sentiment - sometimes the only enjoyment I get out of NIN lyrics is the sheer earnestness of the deliver. Fortunately, The Downward Spiral still rocks like a motherfucker so even if the lyrics aren't the greatest - well, they're not the point any more, are they?

Yes, and it was a blast to see Trent screaming, jumping around and blasting those songs on the guitar.

In the 30 minute program there seemed to be 5 minutes of info about the 360, and 25 minutes of people standing around saying yo, yo, yo.  I turned it off in embarrasment when my wife came in the room, not because it was a show about xbox, but because it was a show on MTV.

I know it isn't a bittorant site, but Realworld has a ton of tv shows, you just have to use emule/edonkey.

See, I still love the Smiths and was going to use them as an example instead of Green Day in my post but didn't because they're not contemporaries of NIN. There are songs by the Smiths (and Morrissey) that I've never liked, but there are songs that I love today as much as I did when I first started listening to them all of those years ago. The fact is, even if I don't necessarily identify all that much with those songs any more, I still love the lyrics because they weren't earnest at all.

True dat. In fact, I'm listening to them right now. I love Morrissey's lyrics, even if (and probably because) some of them are so absurd.

I will agree with you on How Soon As Now. If I time later, I'll tell you guys about the time my friends and I went to a goth teen nightclub in high school.

One of the first things I did when I got my iPod was rip all of my Smiths stuff and then make a "Smiths Best" playlist. How Soon Is Now was the first song on the list. It's still one of their finest songs even if it is a bit of a shoe-gazer. "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I want" is the best Smiths song, hands down.
