So it has come to this for the music biz

Is anybody stupid enough to believe this crap:

“Hit Song Science™ provides immediate feedback on your song´s potential for commercial success and instant legitimization in the market for high-scoring music.

Do you want help choosing the best channels and markets for your music and which of your songs have the best chance for success?

The Music Universe™ helps you understand the hit potential of your songs within different markets and niches, and includes targeted promotional features to help your music gain visibility with audiences who already like your sound.”

Oh wait, yeah…this could actually work on that bunch of mindless drones that actually buys American Idol cd’s…or fans of ‘modern’ country music. What’s really weird is that I actually DO believe it is possible to analyze and pattern match songs against previous hit song drivel. I mean Clive Davis among others could do it… Click “here” to barf.

Oh, and just to add to the list of really stupid things I’ve seen on the web lately, this one is way at the top. This comes from a CBS ‘news’ site, what a freaking joke. You have have to watch a really stupid ad promoting alcoholism (fitting somehow) but after that you get get to hear “Kim Kardashian – Reality TV Star” (BTW I did NOT make that up). The byline reads:

“in a revealing interview with, ultra-famous reality TV star (my emphasis) Kim Kardashian discusses, among other things, her new turn in a special summer Nivea challenge to help fight against cellulite.”

I feel kind of sorry for her as a human being, this is just not right, and she is obviously clueless. And after all, she is leading the fight against cellulite, having suffered with it herself…gad…I cannot believe I am putting this here, but here’s the link.

  1. Yea,she’s a real crusading tart..I could see serious obesity but cellulite?She takes ‘beautiful and stupid’ to a whole new evil plane.

  2. Exposure to celebrity obsessed, tabloid loving mindless pop culture will set your hair on fire, leave it alone Andy, we care about you ( voice from the past )

  3. Yeah, if I had any hair, that would be a problem. From my point of view this is one of those topics that is potentially a bottomless pit of commentary. Pop culture occasionally produces something quite interesting. Unfortunately for me in the last several years, whenever I even scratch the surface I seem to discover nothing but a foul layer of stupidity and some large set of either observers or worse, participants, that think it is all just normal somehow….

  4. I love hearing Andy’s rants. I mean what is with us? Why does America eat this up? 1. It’s easy 2. Distracts us from us 3. The machine feeds us, then repeats, thus making it somehow real or something of substance
