GUEST,Phil d'Conch Is Spotify a good deal for musicians? (12) RE: Is Spotify a good deal for musicians? 30 Mar 21


New Rule: Equality of Outcomes | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

Standout quote from the Rolling Stone article: In a perfect world, the bottom one percent of artists would get one percent of activity.

“Bottom” – Descartes and Pareto both be like... wty?

Famous and/or successful do not equate with best unless you are just in it for the money. A lot of great music “falls through the cracks”, as Maher puts it. As an entertainer, he knows better.

The problem with both sides of the debate is they begin after the poor consumer has at least sampled those 40k+/day uploads to Spotify; not to mention catching up on the tens of millions of songs previously uploaded; whilst maintaining equally equitable outcomes for Youtube, Netflix, ad nauseum.

The number one choice for everything is always “don't know and/or don't care.” It's why marketing and advertising exists.

Your share of the electricity bill and rent for the tens of millions of clunkers is an altogether different show-biz maths.
