Quote of the Day:
“People are really scared to put themselves out there cause its really scary to face rejection.”
The countdown has begun, in one month Radio Disney will pull the plug at 23 of their 24 stations. While the company is putting a positive spin on their focus towards digital distribution you can’t help but wonder what the net effect will be? Will the handlers of Taylor Swift and One Direction be able to justify sending their top tier artists to a internet streaming station? (Pictured above: The first Radio Disney Van design, 1998)

Coming off an exciting weekend at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, Charli XCX drops a new video for her latest single, Break the Rules from her sophomore album, Sucker. The video accompaniment for the rebel anthem features cameos from Rose McGowan as well as gal-pal Kitten front-woman Chloe Chaidez.
TwinCities.com has a review of DigiFest at the MN State Fair. For the most part, it reflects a lot of my opinions regarding what you get in 3 hours – “a nearly nonstop stream of hairdos, skinny jeans and exposed abs parading out to sing or rap a few songs, primarily (poorly performed) cover versions of current pop hits.” One interesting aspect that stood out in this writeup was the fact that the reviewer didn’t even mention Before You Exit? It seems lately the group and it’s management has been making rather poor choices and rubbing fans, the press, publicists and concert promoters the wrong way.
