79p a shot - price from itunes music store

10,000 people - a number I made up

£7900 - those 2 figures together

40p ish - Sony's share of the music after paying out 6.5p to the songwriter

£4000 - those two figures multiplied together




Come on, how many of you have said "yes, I'm going to do this" but in the end can't be bothered doing it?

Change your settings on facebook, you don't have to get any emails if you don't want.


Right I need to check this then. I don't use Facebook very often so I never really bothered to change those settings.


I was rather annoyed when I logged in the other day though. My friend showed me how to make sure that only friends can see your profile picture and information. Facebook asked me a few days ago whether I wanted to keep my old settings so I said 'yes'. Then I checked what my profile looks like to other people and it turned out that they changed my settings anyway.

This is the week that the Brits decide their Christmas number one single. X-factor types always win. If lots of British people get together and pay to download a different song, X-factor might not.


It's sort of like rickrolling the charts but without Rick.



And there's already a thread for it. :dozey:

WHY did it have to be Rage Against The Machine. They can't even write proper music.


The facebook acne ridden idiots on facebook should have gone for something different.

Well looking around, it seems like Rage is currently in the lead and will at least finish second. The band have promised that the profits will go to a British charity.


Now you can gripe all you want about Sony vs. Sony (the X-factor people certainly are- Sony are betraying us boohoo!) and about all the irony of buying a song you're told to buy because it say I won'd to what you tell me. And such and so on ad nauseum.


BUT the thing is money does talk. Sony is currently getting a great big wake up call that people are so frustrated about the state of pop music that they will pay a record label to be able to tell that label to change. Bring lining the pockets of a charity vs. lining the pockets of Simon Cowell into it, and I kind of sympathize with this.


Actually, what it really reminds me of is the Juno awards a few years ago where Broken Social Scene had been bashing Canadian Idol in the press, since most of the nominees were former contestants. When BSS won an award one of them yelled "Fight for Good Music". Canadian Idol's Simon Cowell clone's response was his opinion doesn't count because he doesn't sing very well. :wtf: They don't get it. They really truly don't get it, and this is a chance for someone somewhere to get the message through.


So good luck to Rage, say I.
