  1. This curmudgeon's radio DJ career is over: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-13583931/Greatest-Hits-Radio-presenter-Ken-Bruce-refuses-play-Taylor-Swift-songs-writes-isnt-ex-boyfriends.html
  2. Assuming you are Bulgarian, you should be careful when publicly expressing negative opinions about a major industrial American pop icon like Taylor Swift or we Americans might sanction your country. /s. 🙃
  3. The age demographics of Taylor Swift's fanbase in the poll data is consistent with my Generation Z 18 year old son and his friends thinking that her pop songs are corny and for old folks. This is how my friends and I felt about Elvis during the 70's when we were into Jethro Tull, Yes, ELP, Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, etc.
  4. Grab a bag of popcorn. It's on. My money is on Taylor to send her social media shock troops of angry bored Millennial soccer moms to end Dave Grohl's career. Dave had better publicly grovel and snivel to Queen Taylor before it's too late. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/taylor-swift-seems-responded-dave-152151174.html
  5. A yuuuge catfight is brewing! Taylor Swift vs. Billy Eilish and Kim Kardashian. If they do end up tussling naked on pay-per-view, this dirty old man just might spill some coin and watch. It'd probably be the biggest pay-per-view event in the history of the multiverse! https://www.lifeandstylemag.com/posts/kim-kardashian-thrilled-about-taylor-swift-billie-eilish-feud/
  6. Dave Grohl took a jab at Taylor Swift in a recent concert. He may regret his words when psycho millennial soccer mom Swifties come after him on Social media. Dave will probably be forced to kneel and kiss Queen Taylor's ring if he wants to continue making serious coin in the business. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/dave-grohl-trolls-taylor-swift-185431012.html?fr=sycsrp_catchall
  7. Taylor Swift's fans are mainly bored millennial soccer moms and beta males looking to get in their sweat pants Sorry for trolling y'all but I'm bored.
  8. Yawn... FWIW My 18 year-old son and his friends think Taylor Swift's music is corny and for "old" folks. HIs 17 year-old girlfriend said her 39 year-old mom took her to a Taylor Swift concert, and she hated it. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2024-02-18/why-are-so-many-taylor-swift-fans-middle-aged/103457252 https://www.statista.com/statistics/1372971/taylor-swift-fans-by-generation/
  9. And then there's older-than-dirt Mr. George Strait and he doesn't even have to pop booty or twerk (although the ladies still think he looks good in tight-fitting Wranglers): https://people.com/george-strait-breaks-record-for-largest-ticketed-concert-in-us-8664912
  10. Point understood. Billy Eilish is great. Many of her lyrics are objectively deep and she's a very talented songwriter/ musician /singer as is my favorite "younger" lady songwriter / musician /singer, Molly Tuttle. FWIW... My 18 year-old son and his musician friends dig Billy Eilish and despise Taylor Swift as being manufactured pop. Just like in our day, not all of today's youth are created the same. In this context, one wonders if the Beatles and Elvis (with the exception of Ringo) didn't look like male underwear models when they were young, would they have become so rich and famous? I would argue major financial success in music is usually a combination of talent, looks and luck, in varying proportions.
  11. If Taylor didn't look like a Catwalk supermodel and was 5' 3" and weighed 170 lbs., she'd probably be slinging hash in her hometown's Waffle House. Having said that, this old man does enjoy videos of her booty shaking performances, even with the sound off. Youza... Sorry for being a misogynistic objectifying dirty old man. But as Popeye the Sailor said, "I am what I am".
  12. I had a MR76 from about 1998 until 2010. IMO it was a damn good board with really cool sounds, especially for its time, although it was a beast to transport. I remember that the MR's sequencer and drum machine were a lot of fun. I sold it for just a few hundred bucks. Wish I would have kept it now for fun home use.
  13. Thanks for the heads-up. I just ordered it. I don't have an immediate need for it but it'll be in my gig bag just in case. I'm also a sucker for a potentially good deal because I'm a cheap old fart. I've been burned a few times but all-in-all I've come out ahead with my cheapness.
  14. I'm a cheap old fart and also proudly use trash bags as speaker covers. Back on topic... I have a pair Alto TS310's and IMO they're good speakers for the price. I play in mono and use one of 'em or a Yamaha DBR10 for quieter gigs, and use a QSC K12 for louder gigs. I checked out the newer Alto TS410's and didn't hear a significant difference vs. the TS310's, and I have I no interest in Bluetooth, so I don't plan to upgrade.
