I'm pretty sure I can count on one hand the amount of times I've taken a real vacation from this website. Usually even 'vacation' means I'm checking my phone every few hours and making sure all my emails are answered. However, this weekend I'm going to be heading to the coast with some friends for a few days and I am going to try and shut my phone off for most of that time. I'm looking forward to trying to decompress from the job and enjoy some good books, good company, and get caught up on listening to the backlog of my favorite podcasts. Before taking off I wanted to make sure we had a podcast episode up this week. We've really been trying to be consistent and have one of these up...

A judge in arbitration court for the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region decided on Monday to consolidate separate complaints from Sony Music Russia, Universal Music Russia and Warner Music U.K. into one case against VKontakte, which boasts 142 million global users and is Russia's second most popular website. VK openly allows users to upload copyrighted music and videos to their profiles, but the site has yet to secure licensing deals with rights holders, despite numerous warnings from regulators.

Wow. I’ll go out on a limb here and suggest that Brand New is one of the worst bands I’ve ever seen in decades of concert attendance. Horribly out of tune, dedicatedly dirge-dedicated, apparently hostile to anything resembling a melody, and, one would guess, comfortable with the idea of blending emo, metal, hardcore, and punk with an ear for the atonal, the group offered a set that just didn’t seem to want to end. It did, eventually.
"Mr. Simmons! We're here to tell you that the day of misogynistic, sexist rock'n'roll is over! We call for the complete and utter surrender of the Kiss Army. Lay down your guitars! Do you accept our terms of surrender?"
“But on this one they’re like, ‘Fuck you guys, you’re not saving anything. This record blows’. I’ve read some pretty funny reviews that are obviously like, ‘Fuck those guys, they suck’.
