Cuckoo…has a good name. From Oslo, Norway, he may be a little strange, but his music is also pretty dirty..not sure if there’s a relationship there or not. To me, Cuckoo seems a little Aldous Snow – esque, if you’ve ever seen the movies “Get Him to the Greek” or “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Check out his website and his other videos and you’ll see what I mean. – A strange coincidence that just adds to the lore of what is Cuckoo.
This “megaman REMIX” is disgusting:

The Traktor Kontrol S4 is retardedly cool. Not only is it perfect for parties with friends and messing around but think about what you could do with this thing if you started recording your own samples! You should really watch this video and see how easy it is to do some sick ass audio mixing live with this one interface..and it looks madd fun! Personally, I’m waiting until my local Guitar Center has a show model for me to play with before I think about getting one. For $1,000 bucks, it has potential to be a great investment.

I just read an article provided by HypeBot.com informing the general public of Warner Music Group’s rapid decline in revenue over the past year. This is exactly what we’ve been expecting and all of you independent artists out there should be excited to see this fall continue until these major labels are no more. Here are the projected numbers for the end of the third quarter:
- Digital revenue was $179 million, 27% of total revenue but up just 2% from $175 million in the prior year quarter and down 10% sequentially from the second quarter of fiscal 2010.
- Operating loss was $1 million compared to operating income of $25 million in the prior-year quarter.
- Operating income before depreciation and amortization (OIBDA) was down 29% to $64 million from $90 million in the prior-year quarter.
This is a great thing for music as a whole, driving down the main stream nonsense to help push creativity and independence in the music world. People are becoming more and more prone to purchasing music digitally along with hearing new things that no one has heard, so they can share the music they find with others through the seas of social networks online. It’s not considered “cool” anymore to have top 40 hits on your CD player when you’re hearing on mainstream radio all the time. The labels don’t have enough talent and people are beginning to realize this everyday which will continue to fuel their demise.
