The Money Shot: Chuck D Says Barock's The Man (Shock!)...

"I think Barack Obama is the right man for the job, but maybe in the wrong country right about now that will be able to treat it right and give him the pressures that will not allow him to do the job... I did originally think they were going to be a dream team together but Hillary has put so much foot in her mouth it makes that a rather difficult thing to look at."

The Money Shot: Songs That Make You Want To Fight...

"Robbie Williams, best known for his anthem Angels, leads the list of artists whose hits can calm drunken revellers. By contrast, the guitar riffs of songs such as the Rolling Stones’ Street Fighting Man and heavy basslines of hip-hop tracks were most likely to trigger a bar brawl."

The Money Shot: Screw High Fidelity, Just Fit More Songs On My iPod...

"Most people, in fact, are probably unaware that the music they download on to their MP3 player sounds different to the CD version, and bears almost no relation to the original studio recording.

You could say that an entire generation, having spurned CDs in favour of digital downloads, has no idea how its favourite albums should really sound.

That's because the songs you download from online stores have been compressed to make them take up less space on your MP3 player and to ensure you can download them faster."

The Money Shot: Chicago Shakes Down StubHub...

"The city argues in the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court that the two firms—eBay bought StubHub last year—are "reseller's agents" and are therefore required under Chicago's ordinance to pay an amusement tax. The lawsuit seeks a court order allowing the city to audit the companies and award fines for failing to collect and pay the tax."

The Money Shot: UK Stadium Owner Says To Neighbors "Pay No Attention To The Boss Behind That Curtain"...

"Arsenal director Ken Friar has promised to “keep the sound down” for next weekend’s controversial Bruce Springsteen concerts, expected to attract more than 120,000 fans to the Emirates stadium... The club is aware it is “on trial” over the staging of the two events next Friday and Saturday evenings. A huge £100,000 anti-sound curtain, hundreds of feet wide, will be draped from the roof of the stadium in an attempt to prevent noise disturbing neighbours."

The Money Shot: Taking A Chunk Out of The RIAA's Ass...

"An Oregon federal magistrate has awarded nearly $108,000 to a Beaverton single mother who said the recording industry falsely accused her of illegally downloading music. The money represents Tanya Andersen's attorney fees and costs in successfully fighting a lawsuit filed by the recording industry against her... Andersen's legal battle with the Recording Industry Association of America has gained national attention as a case of David vs. Goliath. Her suit accuses the industry of a waging a "campaign of threat and intimidation" against her and others who have never illegally downloaded music."

The Money Shot: The Family That Does 'Shrooms Together... At A Rock Theme Park?

"In British Invasion, families frolic in the Magic Mushroom Garden, billed as the world's largest "living black-light poster." Aboard the psychedelic-style ride, Nights in White Satin: The Trip, riders wear 3-D glasses for a dark, dizzying cruise past holograms and blinking lights, with the title tune, naturally, playing in the background."

- New Hard Rock Park rolls out concerts and hot rides; Disney, Universal ramp up attractions

The Money Shot: Spin The Black Circle...

"Increasingly, artists are insisting that their record companies release their new albums on vinyl as well as on CD and online. New music by Elvis Costello, Tom Petty’s Mudcrutch, Jack White’s Raconteurs and even Madonna has come out on vinyl in recent weeks, sometimes in advance of the CD version.

But how are you going to play your platters? More importantly, how areyou going to get them on your iPod so you can happily straddle the analog and digital worlds?"

The Money Shot: RIAA's On-Going Battle With Colleges

Fortunately, reports Inside Higher Ed, some colleges are getting wise to these distinctions, and are beginning to throw out copyright complaints that simply complain of possible -- rather than actual -- infringement.

College officials have another theory about the surge in complaint letters -- they wonder if the industry is preparing to take its numbers to Congress as evidence of rampant copying at universities, in the hopes of persuading members to pass some sort of punitive legislation.

- An ulterior motive in the music biz's college fight?

The Money Shot: Selling (Out) Bands Like Hotcakes...

" It’s as if we’ve suddenly become aware of the truth behind the smoke and mirrors of the record deal. Most artists now understand how the business works and who their fans are. That is always going to be valuable to a brand. It’s certainly a freer, more equal relationship. Record companies have to own everything, because their whole model is based on selling records - ‘Is it a hit, will it make us our money back?’ If brands do nothing other than free musicians from the tyranny of needing a radio-friendly smash to have a career, it has to be a positive."

Radiohead in STL

Getting back to bloggin' after a great show last night in the STL... Opening act was The Liars. Meh... They were just ok, dawg. Then the main event. It was a solid performance, great but not transcendent. Unfortunately, with Radiohead you come to expect transcendent. Kinda like watching a world record longjumper jump two feet less than their record mark. It's still better than almost anyone else can do, but you can't exactly call it a personal best effort either, right? I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

Setlist is below. High points were Jigsaw, Bangers & Mash, the rare Fake Plastic Trees, and an amazing Paranoid Android. Low points were the saggy middle of the set and the full, painful 2 hours wait to get out of the parking lot after the show...

The Money Shot: Why Can't The Little Guy Compete With Free Major Label Crap?

"People can get music for free on the net so to give it away to people and admit that is a sensible thing. Big artists like that can make their money in other ways and they can still have a great career.

"But it only really works if you're a massive act. If we turned around and offered our single for free I don't know how many people would bother."
