This is a lot like something I would do...

With just a keyboard and a microphone, the singer takes to a rowboat in the lightly choppy waters off Far Rockaway, Queens, to perform his song "No Other Heart."

I think Taylor is absolutely right in this one!

Artists already only receive an insultingly paltry sum for streams of their music, so for Apple to request them to give up three months of potential revenue (even as small as that may be) is disgusting and offensive.
 
Taylor Swift slams Apple because of its decision to force the artists to cover the cost (and risk) of the three months free trial of Apple Music. 

And she is not alone. See here: http://goo.gl/rc83ZM here: http://goo.gl/u2XHdz ...and here: http://goo.gl/ouZHkj

As an individual, I find Apple's conduct to be highly problematic as well. It's behaving like Ebenezer Scrooge. Apple has $160 billion in cash. That's enough money to completely cover the expected revenue of Apple Music for 12 years. It's so much money that Apple could easily buy all the major record labels. And yet, to launch their new service, it is unwilling to cover the cost of the first three month trial. 

So, spot on Taylor! Why should artists, and especially the small indie artists who are already struggling financially, pay for the cost of launching Apple Music?

Here is Taylor's post: http://taylorswift.tumblr.com/post/122071902085/to-apple-love-taylor

My first Mixcloud episode.

My first Mixcloud episode! A collection of a handful of classic gothic tracks by artists who have inspired me as gothic musician, and something new at the end.

A point of contention with me, and I would hope, many other independent musicians, is the attitude of "music should be free" as expressed by a few of the young people in this interview. 
Really? Free...???
Then how about you come work for me - for free?
You can load my gear in and out of venues, serve me my drinks, fix me my meals, clean my house, wash my car, tend my pets when I'm traveling, etc. all for FREE.  Ok?  
Hey youth - Fuck You.

Horse____. You should do your craft for free and see if you can make your house and car payments. Ridiculous notion.
