    1. When Jimmy Buffett has an idea for a song — sometimes just a phrase — he writes it down on any available scrap of paper and stuffs it into an old sea chest. When he’s ready to write some new music, he sits down and pulls out all those scribbles, which I imagine must be torn off bar napkins and beer coasters, and sorts through them, one by one. He says many of his most popular songs marinated in his sea chest before emerging as lyrics.

      Source for this?

      Sounds very similar to Eminem's "stacking ammo".

    1. It is said these two songs spring from the same tune - but with different lyrics applied in the American west... Separated by hundreds of years and the Atlantic Ocean, I alternate the verses of the two songs here, showing the similarity..

    1. For largely financial reasons, the intensity of bookings is increasing (the number of artists scheduled to perform per year, per season, etc.) and the bookings themselves are growing more and more extensive (the kilometres/miles travelled by artists continue to rise with fewer and fewer performance dates in each region)
      • for: music industry - touring economics, concert booking arms race, unsustainable booking
        • the intensity of bookings ( number of artists scheduled to perform per year or per season) is increasing
        • the average booking is becoming more geographically widespread ( more kilometers travelled per artist) with fewer performance dates per region
        • increase in artistic fees and technical requirements force organizers to attract more audiences who come from further away, creating a concert booking arms race
    2. artists are complicit in
      • for: carbon emissions of the 1%, carbon inequality, carbon emissions - artists, high carbon lifestyle
      • comment
        • top tier entertainers are conditioned to a high carbon lifestyle. This is a challenge to overcome.
        • example given
          • DJ who flew to perform in four different EU cities in the same evening!
    3. Most renowned artists and the trades and professions around them (producers, broadcasters, booking agents, distributors, internet platforms…) are today dependent on hyper-intensive energy-consuming models.
      • for: carbon footprint - music industry, carbon footprint - concerts, carbon footprint - touring
      • paraphrase
        • Most renowned artists and the trades and professions around them
          • producers,
          • broadcasters,
          • booking agents,
          • distributors, internet platforms
          • studios
          • equipment and service providers
        • are today dependent on hyper-intensive energy-consuming models.
        • Music or showbusiness artists, for example, depend more and more on touring and festivals.
        • Namely because with a remuneration of 0,0034 dollars per listened music track,
          • only 1% of music artists receive a minimum wage through streaming and
          • because, in the meantime, sales in the physical media market (CD, vinyl) have collapsed,
            • and streaming has not made up for loss of value.
        • Unsurprisingly, the artists who are most successful at making a living receive the quasi-totality of their revenue from the tours they do via concerts or festivals
          • (which incur high travel carbon footprint)
        • And those have a tendency to increase at an unchecked rate.
        • To attract the largest crowd possible, these artists demand
          • more and more top billings
          • with equally
            • increasing fees and
            • technical requirements.
        • example
          • Coldplay travels with no less than 2 kits of 32 articulated lorries on the road (for their “ecological” tour),
          • Rammstein accounts for
            • almost 100 articulated lorries
            • 7 cargo planes for their tours and
            • burns no less than 1000 litres of heating oil for their pyrotechnical effects at each concert (something the group proudly displays on social media).
      • noteworthy
        • due to loss of product sales, touring and concerts is the only way musicians can make money, and that comes at high carbon emission cost

      Lots of controversy over this music video this past week or so.

      In addition to some of the double entendre meanings of "we take care of our own", I'm most appalled about the tacit support of the mythology that small towns are "good" and large cities are "bad" (or otherwise scary, crime-ridden, or dangerous).

      What are the crime statistics per capita about the safety of small versus large?

      Availability bias of violence and crime in the big cities are overly sampled by most media (newspapers, radio, and television). This video plays heavily into this bias.

      There's also an opposing availability bias going on with respect to the positive aspects of small communities "taking care of their own" when in general, from an institutional perspective small towns are patently not taking care of each other or when they do its very selective and/or in-crowd based rather than across the board.

      Note also that all the news clips and chyrons are from Fox News in this piece.

      Alternately where are the musicians singing about and focusing on the positive aspects of cities and their cultures.
