If you’ve ever worked outdoors with your laptop, you know how critical it is to get some shade for your screen so you can actually see it. Instead of buying a laptop visor, pick up an IKEA storage box for $6 to serve as your laptop’s foldable shade.
Just days after Jack Whitedefended the value of music in a Q&A, the rocker has expanded on those thoughts in a new poem titled “Music Is Sacred.” In the poem posted to his Third Man Records site, White pleads to “those of you who stand for the sanctity of music / So that its soul can breathe and be heard” and warns of “cowards and those who would intend to rip out your lungs and dampen your desire.”
During White’s Q&A with Third Man Records subscribers and Facebook followers, the Lazaretto singer fielded inquiries regarding Tidal, Jay Z’s new high quality audio streaming service that White aligned with. When asked why his fans should pay a premium to stream music when they could listen for no charge on YouTube or Spotify’s freemium mode, White explained, “Don’t devalue musicians, man; support them. Making records is expensive, believe us. I don’t see people saying we should go to the movies for free, or Netflix should be free. That state of music is in flux. Be on the side of supporting creativity, not taking from it. This gives you that chance.”
White has been eager to assist Tidal in its early goings, offering up an exclusive live stream of his recent North Dakota concert to the service and even personally phoning fans who are Tidal subscribers to thank them for their patronage.
“Tidal is going to help a lot of artists out. I’m talking about the punk band that has 50k hits on YouTube and doesn’t see a dime,” White wrote in his Q&A. “But also bigger artists, medium artists, whatever, if PSY gets viewed 2 billion times and makes a couple grand, where did all his money go? It’s also very important to buy real records from artists you love when they are on tour. That buys gas in our tanks when we were struggling.”
Read White’s entire “Music Is Sacred” poem:
those of you who stand for the sanctity of music so that its soul can breathe and be heard so that it blooms in graveyards echoes in hotel hallways awakens neighbors in the night and fills peoples minds with fire shout it out loud with whatever microphone you have or these stones will shout for you. jump in front of demons, and stand over cowards and those who would intend to rip out your lungs and dampen your desire tell the living and the dead what you know in your heart to be true and what you know your ears will forever hear that the melody of the human race is a song that never ends. music is sacred.
Vote counting is well underway in Ireland’s historic referendum on same-sex marriage on Saturday. It appears, at this stage in the count, that the traditionally Catholic country has voted heavily in favour of allowing same-sex marriage. Final results are not expected until late afternoon but a Yes result would make Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote, just two decades after the country decriminalised homosexuality Continue reading… All images and written content is property of the listed RSS FEED if you would like more on this story and images please click the listed feed. http://feeds.theguardian.com/theguardian/world/rss
