I didn’t get a grant because I took a stance against censoring young artists. But we’re gonna say what we have to say regardless. This is why I’m an entrepreneur. This is why I’m making for-profit moves. I could give a fuck about making buckets of money. This is about being LOUD.
I'm so thankful to my family and friends. Thanks for coming to celebrate with me. Thanks for putting your good energies into my life. Thanks for blessing me as I turn 25 and charging me up with more than enough positivity for the journeys ahead.
School assignment for time based media course. "Select an artwork presented in class, or approved by the teacher, or select your own artwork. Referencing our foundational readings (Benjamin and McLuhan), discuss how that artwork's medium or mode of production affects our experience of the piece." I had fun with it decided to look at Kendrick's newly released music video for ELEMENT. This paper made me uncover some interesting themes in the song, I think I'm on to something 🤔
Was meeting with someone today to introduce them to LOUD! They were super excited with it and in talking asked me send him some music that I was into. So I made this list of songs. These are songs that over the past couple years have gotten me excited. The artists, the culture, and the music keep me motivated, keep working on making LOUD a reality 😁.
Good news is on the way 🙏🏿🤞🏿😝 in the meantime check out these songs, aka the life blood of LOUD.
I’m proud to say I have 26+ artist in LOUD’s Music Group. I’ve secured $1720 in funding; LOUD has been viewed 1207 times online; has 103 followers despite not officially launching any social media; has 100% positive responses and every day I meet people that love the idea and want to be apart of building it.
Apple music, Spotify, etc make this assumption that paying for a service is related to someone's willingness to have the service. Its something they've learned from the flawed but prevailing economic theories in North America that are used in our brand of capitalism. The truth is how much money someone exchanges to another person for a good or service has nothing to do with their willingness to pay, and more to do with their ability to.
