      Misplaced priorities

      The Fyre Festival is again making news of the surreal variety. Organizers of the aborted Bahamas bash spent $150,000 on a yacht for Blink-182, yet forgot to budget for running water and toilets. You know—all the small things.

      Looking forward

      Rage Against the Machine has announced the release of the album Live at the Democratic National Convention 2000. What the world really needs is the band announcing it’s booked for the frontlines of the 2020 Republican National Convention.

      Protect ya Bitcoin

      With the release of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Dirty Coin and Ghostface Killah’s Cream coin, the Wu-Tang Clan owns the rap corner of the cryptocurrency market. Maybe Martin Shkreli can borrow some to buy back Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

      Music in your face

      To compete with YouTube, Facebook has signed licensing deals with Universal Music Group and Sony that will allow users to share videos with music in them, because we aren’t all spending enough time on Facebook already.
