The Netflix Fyre doc has better behind the scenes footage, but the Hulu version makes a much more compelling case for fraud/sociopathy, right? Slight edge to Hulu.

Here’s what I still like about Twitter: this is Tameca’s initial response to “a proud southerner” attacking the new @GaryClarkJr video.

Maybe it's time to let the old ways die. (I order and pay online for the one down south and usually swoop in and out pretty quickly. But I understand your complaint.) twitter.com/Andylanger/sta…
 
I'll give em' another shot...but it's not the apps/technology I have trouble with...it's that if you're a restaurant expanding your biz with the apps, you need staff to keep up. And treating real-life people like second-class citizens just isn't a good look
 
Not this time. But this is the hill I'm gonna die on. In line. While a cashier fiddles with an iPad.
Hey @odam, you know what’s worse than scooters? Austin counter-service restaurants w/ small staffs prioritizing delivery apps, making real-life customers stand and wait while they process orders from four different iPads.
My concern w/ the concept of 3-a-yr./rapid-fire releases is just that: our instinct to binge and move on. Sure, this way fans move towards two more of his albums. But it potentially cuts each set's shelf-life short and risks further diminishing the value of full-length albums. twitter.com/JuddApatow/sta…
Then again, satiating the fanbase/staying front-of-mind is good and clearly this frees an artist of having to wait around for what's now outdated music business machinery to ramp up and commit to an "album cycle." So maybe I'm just an old man clinging to old release models?
End of an era. But bust ass for 20 years on a true neighborhood restaurant and you can be assured two things: 1. They wholly deserve to cash-out 2. They wouldn’t w/o leaving it in good hands twitter.com/odam/status/10…

Also, listen to the song? Nobody outside of D'Angelo - and now Rep. Tlaib- has so beautifully, artfully utilized it.
I faded it fast. Dead air is bad, but FCC fines are worse. We both laughed nervously, but I wasn't fired and not a single listener filed a complaint..probably because it's ridiculous, then and especially now, for people to feign objection to such a perfectly evocative word
True story: In 2000, we had a new @101x boss start. He came to meet me for the first time while I was in-studio hosting The Next Big Thing. The most popular song on the show at the time was a radio edit of this @the_eels song: youtube.com/watch?v=ThtMdk…
The radio edit was called "It's A Mothertrucker." But nervous to meet the new boss, I grabbed the UNEDITED album version out of my CD case. I pressed play and we talked...until the 3rd time the real unedited FCC-violating MF'er passed through the studio speakers overhead.
