Music First, Stardom Second

I can’t get an Apple Watch, but every celebrity known to man has been seeded one to make them look cool. Who’s using who? And if you think it’s the musicians who are coming out ahead, you own no Apple stock. Used to be different. Players weren’t rich. They were in it for the dope,…Read More

April Fools: Apple to Buy Spotify

The price? A COOL TEN BILLION! It had to happen. Apple’s stock rises when it has a monopoly. And despite all the iPhone profits, Android has greater worldwide market share. This is not the iPod revolution, wherein a seamless hardware/software combination, of iPod iTunes and FairPlay DRM, ensured that no other player could gain traction….Read More

Interview: Full Disclosure Radio

artworks-000079826714-f6sx9b-t500x500Last week, Roben Farzad turned the tables and gave me the full podcast treatment on his show, Full Disclosure Radio. He was gracious and way too complementary. (Remind me one day to explain how the whole horse thing came about).

It was a fun conversation. We chatted for about an hour, and if the feed wasn’t scheduled to cut off, we probably could have gone another hour. You can download it on iTunes, stream it on Soundcloud, or just click after the jump to listen.

Every now and again, being reminded what its like on the other side of the interview is good for my MiB process. Be sure to give it a listen.
