Taylor swift has made "Less than $500,000 across hundreds of millions of plays."

The poor thing. She's probably starving. Maybe we should start a fundraiser.

If shes that poorly compensated, how well can anyone else be doing? I don't know shit about Taylor Swift other than she seems to mega popular but it seems like these companies aren't being fair about how revenue is split.

If what I've heard about the streaming audio business is true if they paid anybody any more than what they are currently they would basically be paying to stay in business. It doesn't seem to be a very sustainable business model unless Spotify is somehow different.

did some quick research, even artists that get 100% royalties make chump change for thousands of plays. there's something not right about it cuz spotify make hundreds of millions every year. think WOW revenue, but with ad money on top of that. i don't see where their costs would be except mostly in royalties, and surely they can afford to pay more than a cent per play.

i'm not talking about taylor swift fyi, but the unwashed masses of lesser artists that eek out a living doing this.

eke*

True, but you have dozens of hours of FUN ahead of you getting it all back!
Did you ever grapple yourself to one of those propane canisters (the short stubby ones) and then shoot it? That's so awesome.

It's nice to see PC at the beginning instead of the end of the release platforms.

That reminds me, I should get back into JC2. Great fun. I wish I could reset the map though, or at least just the offshore oil rigs. Those were super fun to complete, but there weren't enough of them.

You can just start a new game. The initial mission takes like 15 minutes to complete, after which the entire map is open and ready for mayhem.

Yeah but then I don't have all my unlocks, insane amount of money, nearly the entire map completed, etc...

JC2 is on sale for $3. If you don't have it already what the hell are you waiting for?

Also, this mouse aiming fix patch is absolutely 100% necessary to fully enjoy the game.

Hopefully JC3 doesn't require a fan made mouse fix.

Hmm... I never noticed this "issue."

You guys need to play Risk of Rain. Spectacular fun, especially in multiplayer, and it gets a lot better as you unlock things in it, like new classes and gameplay modifiers.

Google Wallet use grows after Apple Pay launch

Duh. I had Google Wallet for years and never really had a use for it so never tried it out. Then I saw Apple jumping on the bandwagon, and figured if the plebs were getting in on it, I better at least check it out. Created an account but still have no use for it. :\

Wow, a soldier and reservist murdered in Canada this week and now some lunatic attacked cops with a hatchet in NYC today. Ebola looks to be spreading. Sigh. Things seems to be getting pretty crazy out there atm. Stay safe people.

Seriously? You're talking 2 people out of almost 400 million. And Ebola is not "spreading" in North America. It's arriving here from out of country and being dealt with. What the hell? Crime is as low as it has ever been. Disease is as controlled as it has ever been. Just because the media is hyping shit for clicks doesn't mean things are getting crazy. When did you start to buy into that bullshit?

There are serious problems out there. Global warming is already killing thousands and will result in the deaths of millions perhaps 100s of millions of people through drought, extreme weather, famine, flooding, war, etc. And there are many more: government corruption, corporate corruption, income inequality, poverty, healthcare failures, nuclear weapons, etc. etc. Don't be like the pilot who puts his attention on why the light on switch 17 is broken while his plane augers in.

And now a school shooting in Seattle. Sad week.

Marysville*

It's at least an hour drive from Seattle, just to be clear. Everybody outside of Washington likes to call any goddamned city in Washington "Seattle." It has to stop.
