Spotify ditched Neil Young’s music after the singer’s refusal to come to milder advice about his objection to being on the same platform as Joe Rogan’s podcast, a no-vax commentator. The “Wall Street Journal” writes it today, confirmed by the “Hollywood Reporter”. Young had written an open letter in the past few days threatening to remove all of his songs from Spotify – an action that would have resulted in a deadweight loss of 60% of his streaming proceeds for him – if Rogan had continued to have citizenship rights on the platform. : “They can have Young or Rogan, not both of them.” The “Heart of Gold” singer posted the letter on his website and after two days he removed it. Despite this, Spotify has begun to remove Young’s songs from the site, a spokesperson told the “Hollywood Reporter”. Spotify entered into an over $ 100 million deal two years ago to get the Rogan podcast exclusive. “We want all the music and audio content in the world to be available to our customers. With that comes the great responsibility of balancing the safety of listeners and the freedom of creators,” said a Spotify spokesperson hoping that Young “will be back soon in between. we”.
Destroying the energy and the means by which the masses and populations can assert their rights and freedoms is the most dictatorial act that can be created, especially if the population is unconscious and dozed off in a state of addiction.
Quite singular is the coincidence of the illustration by the Polish artist depicting the charging socket for smartphones, which coincidentally is not standard for all mobile phones, and which despite the fact that there is now talk of creating a standard socket for all smartphones, still not an agreement is found.
The illusion of thinking that chronological progress leads to social progress implies a conformity on the indifference of social values. Television often symbolizes a departure from reality in which the viewer places ideals unconsciously to simplify reality and society, which are increasingly pungent and stressful in their complexity.
Primitive man used the cudgel to fight and use violence. Today, however, the cudgel is represented by language, which more and more often takes on the contours of violence, especially in a world where communication is everything (or almost …)
Our devices are a powerful means with which to interact with a vast world and seemingly full of possibilities. But when everyone in a world has the same tools (smartphones, tablets and computers) not only is it difficult to prevail – or to be autonomous from certain mechanisms – but it is also illusory to believe that we are in a world full of freedom. Our devices often immobilize us and do not make us fully live our moments. The drawing above is very evident and probably reflects this concept to the maximum because it illustrates the time of year we probably care the most: summer
Just a few hours ago, on Sunday June 27, the 2021 Bet Awards were held in Los Angeles. The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles was teeming with “real” people and the stars gave their best, both on the red carpet and on stage. The luxury was certainly undeniable, but the style was sometimes lacking, and if there was, it was on the border between the baroque and the convoluted.
The fact remains that a multitude of artists of this caliber all together and in one place had not been seen for some years, due to pandemics and restrictions, so we cannot miss the opportunity to study and evaluate the outfits proposed by the stars.
Do you know what the Bet Awards are?
The Bet Awards are prizes that are given in an evening entirely focused on celebrating the “African Americans” in terms of music, sport, acting, social commitment and many other sectors. The first ceremony took place in 2001 and since then the Bet Awards have become an annual event. This year’s Bet Awards were important in many ways. First of all, the 2021 Bet Awards were one of the first musical and social events to resume at full capacity, that is, with real people, real spectators and non-artificial stages. They were held in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and unlike last year, where the Bet Awards were held in virtual mode, this year everything is back to normal. The stars had the opportunity to prepare and show off their best looks and to walk the red carpet as usual.
The theme of the 2021 Bet Awards was “year of women of color”. Queen Latifah, singer, actress and activist, for example, received her Lifetime Achievement Award tonight. Leading this edition of the Bet Awards was the award-winning actress Tarji P. Henson, who said during the opening of the show: “Celebrating women of color is not a trend, but a mood of all time … there is room for everyone. we to thrive, because nobody is you like yourself “
Earning online has become widespread but it is certainly not easy. You can create an online product showcase that helps your sales or your availability but making money only on the internet is even more difficult. Surely everyone has thinked of making money online but it is an effort that costs commitment and perseverance …
I got my driver’s license last week
Just like we always talked about
‘Cause you were so excited for me
To finally drive up to your house
But today I drove through the suburbs
Crying ’cause you weren’t aroundAnd you’re probably with that blonde girl
Who always made me doubt
She’s so much older than me
She’s everything I’m insecure about
Yeah, today I drove through the suburbs
‘Cause how could I ever love someone else?And I know we weren’t perfect but I’ve never felt this way for no one
And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay now that I’m gone
Guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me
‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your streetAnd all my friends are tired
Of hearing how much I miss you, but
I kinda feel sorry for them
‘Cause they’ll never know you the way that I do, yeah
Today I drove through the suburbs
And pictured I was driving home to youAnd I know we weren’t perfect
But I’ve never felt this way for no one, oh
And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay, now that I’m gone
I guess you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me
‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your streetRed lights, stop signs
I still see your face in the white cars, front yards
Can’t drive past the places we used to go to
‘Cause I still fuckin’ love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Sidewalks we crossed
I still hear your voice in the traffic, we’re laughing
Over all the noise
God, I’m so blue, know we’re through
But I still fuckin’ love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)I know we weren’t perfect but I’ve never felt this way for no one
And I just can’t imagine how you could be so okay, now that I’m gone
‘Cause you didn’t mean what you wrote in that song about me
‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street
Yeah, you said forever, now I drive alone past your street
The donkey (mule) is often present in the common imagination for pumping water from a well. So this animal represents the water cycle and thus the life cycle. But sometimes man manages to corrupt even animals to generate a cycle of death ..
What is freedom?It is also being able to dream, free from any belief. But also the history of man is a religion to which we must wriggle out and think for ourselves, without inculcating any idea but making people reflect and bringing it to the truth closest to them.
Because our dreams are often stolen, and with them our freedom too
On normal days, outside the emergency, social networks and our smartphones are a superlfuous means of communication. While in this period they represent one of the few (if not the only) means by which not to remain alone. But one must always be cautious in using social media. The image of the artist Pawel Kuczysnki represents his alienation in the traffic, as if we were on a happy island but in reality we are only in the traffic.
