The Blog Post That Riled Eminem And Gave Steve Jobs A Court Date

February 25, 2009

This ubiquitous statement may now be the death nell for already struggling record companies.


Because Eminem read Steve Jobs ‘thoughts’, that line in particular and got pissed.

An Open Letter To Peter Kafka (Or The Gangster Rappers Guide To The New Music Future)

October 15, 2007


I don’t go to church, (I try to stay out of God’s way) but my mind was still forced into a mind-numbing Hell when I happened to find an article by Peter Kafka that claims “Big Music”(his words, not mine) is far from dead.

Having written the obituary for Major Music Labels years ago (at least in my head) I thought I would skip my Monday morning meditation session to explain the world to Mr. Kafka.

You’re invited to look in.
