Fuck the alt right
Rapper sematary called out bladee recently for his alt right fan base and rampant transphobia as well as telling anyone that likes Sam Hyde to unfollow him.

I for one will no longer be listening to bladee and thank god I had never heard of this Sam Hyde until recently (I was disgusted by his ideas AND his appearance)

How will you be responding to bladee fostering a nazi fan base

-Olivia is also a Taylor Swift, Paramore and Courtney Love Hole rip-off
-Someone should throw Taylor Swift out of a helicopter.

-I love Taylor Swift too. And Danz.
--Danz, DP, the faggot who wears Danz merch to work, Taylor Swift, Hayley Williams, Aurora Aksnes, Lauren Mayberry, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tegan and Sara, and all members of Ladytron fuck horses
-/wpop/ is no pop and all bozos!!!
-I wrote several stories featuring a character named "Dee Pea." That character is based on DP, the Danzspammer. DP is having trouble accepting that, so he's denying reality.
-I love her! [Submit]

-DP is heretofore to be known as "Ten CM" because of the size of his penis.

1) Don't worry, it's just fiction.
2) We just talk about pop music and flirt with each other.
3) We don't hate pop stars. We just hate the posters.
4) All Swifties are Tayzos, and Tayzos are Tayzos.
5) I love her!
6) We engage in a moderate amount of tomfoolery.
7) Everyone is gay on /wpop/, even the straights.

Let’s say that you are a young black artists with a primarily white fanbase.

You are sick and tired of feeling alienated at your own concerts. You wished black people would come to your shows like they do for NBA Youngboy or Meek Mill. But for some reason your music only attract white boys.

How can you market yourself towards a black audience, and change the demographics of your fanbase? What strategy should you take?

A change in the musical landscape was inevitable if one would look at the pop charts of the first half of the 1950s. "The music that was on the radio at the time was not what the kids were looking for. There was nothing back then. The time of big bands and great singers had passed and everyone sought something new. The only interesting thing going on then was free jazz, but it was just a little too inaccessible for the mass audience. I thought if we made fast songs with a good beat, that you could dance and clap your hands to, that would be exactly what kids wanted," Bill Haley recalled.

To white teenagers of the '50s, searching the radio dials for something that wasn't Doris Day, Jo Stafford, or Vaughn Monroe inevitably led them to black music and radio. At this time, in a segregated America, the black music world was largely a separate entity that rarely crossed into the pop charts. It had its own classification as "race music", its own radio stations, and DJs. To most whites of the time, black rhythm & blues was shockingly raw and feral--predictably the only black performers to cross over to pop were ones like Nat King Cole and the Mills Brothers who performed the same brand of inoffensive material as white singers.

Perhaps the greatest irony of "Rock Around The Clock" is that it was originally a novelty foxtrot written by Max Freedman, a Tin Pan Alley songwriter in his 60s and anything but a member of the rock and roll generation. As groundbreaking as the song might have been, Bill Haley was not a performer built for the long haul. Nobody would call this unassuming man in a suit and bowtie offensive; at almost 30 he was hardly a teenager and he would humbly call himself "just a country boy." So it was predictable that rock and roll needed a younger star, someone who could truly be a feral sex symbol to teen America.

>Iggy limped off to L.A. after the demise of the Stooges, where he staged his first solo concert at Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco, with a performance he dubbed The Murder of a Virgin. "Do you want to see blood?" Iggy asked the crowd, which howled affirmatively back at him. Then, at Iggy's urging, guitarist Ron Asheton, wearing a Nazi outfit, whipped Iggy repeatedly. Iggy began hurling racial epithets at a black spectator, hoping to goad the man into stabbing him with the steak knife he'd brought onstage. No luck, so he closed the set by carving an X into his chest himself.
What did Iggy mean by this?

Why is Frank Zappa so obsessed with poopy jokes?
>Drummer John French states of "Old Fart at Play", "[it] was never intended to have these lyrics. This is the only other time I saw Zappa aggressively put on his 'producer's hat' and assert his will on Don. The original title to this song was 'My Business Is the Truth, Your Business Is a Lie'."[22]
So Frank’s friend Captain Beefheart is making an album, and Zappa is helping him, and he usually just lets Beefheart do whatever the fuck he wants. But he has an idea for a poopy joke, and he puts his foot down? “It HAS to be Old Fart At Play, Don.” What the fuck was this assholes problem?

What do you guys think of "old fashioned" guitar playing?

^ Good example of what I'm referring to

Roy Bookbinder was taught this style from imo the greatest ragtime guitarist ever, The Blind Reverend Gary Davis. Born in Gray Court South Carolina around the turn of the century, he was playing outside his mother's house one morning and heard music coming up the street, it caught his attention and he yelled to his mother asking her what the music was coming from.. she told him it was a "dirty old guitar player picking a blue"

He heard two songs that morning, "Candyman" and "cocaine blues"

From that day forth he was gripped by the music, His grandmother got him a guitar and he began to turn himself into one of the greatest blues legends ever. The Term "old fashion pickin'" was coined by him and referred to finger picking songs that alternate the bass note that originate well before 1900.

I've recently gotten into the blues and I'm enamored with this style of playing, something about it is so humble, nostalgic, and rooted to what music "used" to be.

What are your thoughts about all this?

Italian Americans and “oldies”
What’s the connection between Italian American culture and rat pack music and 50s-60s music? There seems to be enough of a cultural connection to feel obliged to enjoy this music to this very day. I understand the rat pack because musicians like Frank Sinatra, Louis Primo, Dean Martin etc. represented the italians in the American music realm, but why oldies?

My guess would be because of missing the days where the mafia ruled the streets and you could permanently disfigure someone/they would disappear and nobody would do a thing about it (because mafia). But maybe I’m looking at this from the wrong angle. What would be the real reason?
