Re: “Let’s Have a Show With No Phones Show Tonight at The High Watt

damn i love this. i love my phone too, which i consider a drug these days..... but so many or us are not living in the rock and roll moment of a show anymore that it's become a drag. i'm not saying i'm not guilty of doing it myself, but i at least try to step into another room.

Re: “Ty Segall w/Wand and Circle K at Mercy Lounge, 9/8/14

i've gotta hand it to Ty. After this set, I really want to listen to Manipulator today and the only way it's going to happen is if I go to the record store and buy it. No Spotify, no Beats, no Google Play. The oldest marketing trick in the book.

Re: “Spurgeon's General Warning: Phone

I always liked "Telephone Line." On a hard drive somewhere, I have a video of Baby Teeth Thieves and Mr. Jimmy doing a rad version of it. Until then, there's this live ELO performance. It's been on YT for 8 years and they were already kind of like "eh, phones, who remembers those things?"…

Re: “Spurgeon's General Warning: Phone

Yes, "Frank Mills"! Excellent.

Also, I feel like the correct person we're supposed to want to see nude is Fagan. Gaga and Collins have already both been practically (or totally) naked in some sort of public forum, and I feel like the BEYgency will disappear me if I even suggest the notion of Beyonce n00dz. Also, who doesn't want to know what Fagan is packing.

Re: “Spurgeon's General Warning: Phone

"Frank Mills" from the musical Hair - almost every lyric rendered obsolete by the smartphone.

She met a boy called Frank Mills on December 12th right here in front of the Waverly, but unfortunately she lost his address. Forget smart phones. These hippies didn't even have PHONES and are exchanging their home addresses as contact information.

She goes on to describe his clothing, his resemblance to George Harrison (could have just checked her instagram for that selfie they took in front of the Waverly as a reference), and ending with the singer asking the listener that if you see him, tell him she doesn't want her two dollars back (two dollars?!), just him. One word: Venmo.

Re: “Spurgeon's General Warning: Phone

My favorite song about a phone has basically always been "Hanging on the Telephone," which everyone knows Blondie covered to some success:…

But the original, by The Nerves, is my all-time party jam:…

And Puerto Rico's Davila 666 do a pretty rad all-Spanish version:…

Re: “Hear Tom Hiddleston Sing Hank Williams' 'Move It on Over'

UK and Aussie actors tend to play southerners pretty well. Their vernacular lends itself to Southern slange pretty well already, and from what I understand, it's one of the easier accents for them to imitate. I don't really understand the argument for authenticity when you're hiring an actor to pretend to be someone completely different.

McConaughey is killin' it right now, sure, but there's no way he's playing a british character any time soon.

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

I'm not the one taking piss-shots at another commenter's personality. Taking such resorts seems undermining to your argument. My personality in a social context has very little to do with the subject at hand. The comments section of The Scene is not my idea of a party.

The photos are misleading, even if The Scene gets off on a technicality. And true, The Scene is not responsible for what another news source says, but as the source material provider, they could at least provide accurate description of what led to these dad's reactions.

As for the Simpsons, it's not like The Spin said, "Cowabunga, dude!" I understand transformative value, but isn't that muddied by claiming "captions by The Spin?" And explain how you figure my standard undermines the use of analogy in journalism.

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

Well I may well be a sad dad but I have taken my daughter to see 1D twice now - once in Wembley Arena and once in the Etihad stadium in Manchester. She loved it on both occasions and we had a great time. I was also impressed by the scale, pace and professionalism of the show and how everybody seemed to be having a great time. Finally I also queued my way to the front of the line to buy a programme and t-shirt and took photos which she has blown up on her wall of her favourite band. It was a lot of money and some time, but I will never get the chance to do this again - so why wouldn't a dad do this?

Re: “Hear Tom Hiddleston Sing Hank Williams' 'Move It on Over'

Matthew McConaughey? No way would he have been right for the role... I'm excited to see the movie. I refuse to base my opinion on it based on a poor YouTube festival clip though. I wonder if there will be a teaser clip after the credits....

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

Exactly where is there a breach of journalistic integrity or intellectual property law? What information here is illegitimate?

Not to break it down to semantics, but are the subjects of these photos not AT a One Direction concert, as the headline states? If these pictures were taken at an Eagles concert, you might have a point. But you don’t have a point. What other media outlets say about these photos is totally irrelevant here, where these photos were originally published. Even still, you don’t have a point. You’re categorically, demonstrably wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. So wrong it hurts.

Also, joking captions accompanying and adding levity to funny photos is a well-established device for blogs covering music and pop culture. Most comprehending readers of such blogs know and understand this. Sorry you’re not one of them.

A “Simpsons did it” in-joke for any reader well acquainted with The Simpsons, which is a great many, is not plagiarism. The whole point of the joke is that it IS a Simpsons reference — one that’s culturally established enough to not necessitate attribution. And while we’re at it, said joke is recontexualized when paired with this image, hence constituting transformative value and fair use. And no, I did not just plagiarize South Park. By your standard, making analogies in an article would be a breach of journalism, and making jokes would undermine journalistic integrity. Again — wrong, wrong, wrong.

I’m sure you’re tons of fun at parties. But for fuck’s sake is it forehead-slap-inducing to suffer fools this way.

Re: “Slideshow: Sad Dads at One Direction

So legitimacy of information doesn't really matter if its in good fun? I'm not a big fan of intellectual property law, but it is a journalist's job to abide by it. Also, these pictures have been featured on national news described as sad dads during One Direction--which even the photographer states in the comments is not an accurate claim. I don't think it is too much to expect a little bit of journalistic integrity from paid journalists.
