Except most of the time you don't even have to listen to know it's a completely different band. Or 2 or 3 seconds is enough to know and I believe that won't count as a play

Played a gig last night and got 100 quid. Nice enough for a couple of hours'work. But as I drove home I realised I'd been on the road since 8 and wouldn't get home again until 2 that it's a good job I don't do this for a livng.

A minor complaint as getting paid for a hobby is no bad thing and I did it for years for fuck all.

Also speaking of digital music services. Why would there be the same album listed a number of times under an artist. I don't mind so much when it it clearly marked "xxth anniversary remaster" or something but sometimes it's the SAME ALBUM.

Different masterings/reissues? Vague rights ownerships? And probably a million other reasons.
It is surprising how often it happens.

IIRC there are 2 versions of Sparklehore's "It's a wonderful life" on Spotify

Hollywood Animated kids films getting stars to voice the characters.
Years ago there was really talented voice actors who would create iconic voices for cartoon characters, now they just get multi millionaire movie stars to do their own voices & pay them a fortune. Mel Blanc is turning in his grave.

a place between somewhere and nowhere
Currently in the process of buying a house.
Today I was getting a draft for the balance of the deposit at the bank. The bank teller put the wrong name on the deposit. Instead of solicitors, the teller put limited on it.

The solicitors he was making it out to, was only three doors away from the bank.

Was about to go into town to buy a record and then remembered it's Record Store Day. Ugh.

Aww. I'd have loved to have gone into town. But I'm too busy, I did get to drop into golden discs in Navan and the staff were making the best of it. They had a series of local musicians playing in the corner. They enthusiastically told me that they were open since 8am and that's why they didn't have what I was (half) interested in. They're usually quite grim in there. Let them have their day.
