  • Blurred lines, indeed.
"We owe it to songwriters around the world to make sure this verdict doesn’t stand… This jury didn’t listen to any music, which is rather surprising to me … The fact is that the harmonies are different, the chords are different and the notes are different.”
Howard E. King, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' attorney, after a court ordered the pair to pay Marvin Gaye’s family nearly $7.3 million for copyright infringement. (Fox Business)

“We'll be asking the court to enter an injunction prohibiting the further sale and distribution of 'Blurred Lines' unless and until we can reach an agreement with those guys on the other side about how future monies that are received will be shared,"
Richard Busch, attorney to Marvin Gaye’s family, wants to stamp out “Blurred Lines” altogether. Wow. (Rolling Stone)

"I'm going to say something controversial. Eventually 3D printing will print people. That's scary.”
Will.i.am is worried that the apocalypse will be in 3D. (Dezeen)

Everyone’s flipping the fuck out about the first Montage of Heck trailer:
“I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and, the thing is, he got me all riled up on life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta."
Madonna finally reveals how and why that legendarily awkward David Letterman interview happened. It was all Tupac’s fault! (Sirius XM / Howard Stern Show)

“Damn, her ass is so big, Just keep it bumpin’.”
Snoop Dogg, on his new (Pharrell produced) single, “Peaches & Cream”. (YouTube)

And now, here’s that guy who was just talking about the ass, giving you some advice about what to do with your 401K. You're welcome, America:

“My high speed crash was an intellectual one.”
Was it, John Mayer? Was it? (MSNBC)

"I write a bunch of stuff and I send it to Mike, and Mike writes a bunch of stuff and he sends it to me. We just comment and have arguments on what we wrote. It's more difficult to remember than it is emotionally. It's fun. I'm remembering the fun things; not the depressing things. It's going to be a weird book."
No wonder Ad Roc doesn’t think his book with Mike D will be ready until 2017. (Rolling Stone)

And finally, Tom Hanks just prompted us to watch an entire Carly Rae Jepsen video. Damnit, Hanks, you lovable bastard!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
