1) Let's talk about #art and the #UBI. @AndrewYang, anytime you want to talk, I'm ready!
2) I'm an #artist of sorts. I #paint, I get paid for it, I teach some classes, so let's say that I'm an #artist for the sake or argument, shall we? If you're on board, I'm on board. Let's get this thread started.
3) We could wax poetically for hours about the social good that #art does. There are thinkers and philosophers who have said more than I ever could about this and I suggest that you do your own research. Discovery is #beauty.

Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

Let's start our #GlobalEChats on #music!

Among our #discussion topics: 1. #Stakeholders in music and what happens to them? 2. #Production of music 3. #Consumption of music 4. New #technology out there!

71k jobs were lost; $2.7bn in annual earnings; $1.1bn of that would have been earned by the industry.

But as with any #tech #disruption, there are always negative externalities.

In the #music industry, most of the bad press came from #piracy. Sites like Napster and P2P torrenting were rampant back in the day.
