Rifflandia does a little TC advertising, and suddenly they have 7 new articles just over the past 10 days. 

 

And they say editorial and advertising never speak eh?   :rtfm:

Yesterday was my first Rifflandia experience. I think I’ll book the time off next year and attend the whole thing. Great vibe and production value. I really enjoyed the variety of 0% beverage options.

Phillips had two of their Iota beers on a fountain, a water fountain like you’d see at the mall. I thought it was just water in a branded dispenser but nope, press the button and out flows beer…

Ya, it flows pretty good.  The big stage / small stage thing works well.

And one more article:

 

 

Rifflandia, drenched in sun during its first day at Royal ­Athletic Park, was levelled with an icy chill Saturday, which would have been an issue for those who weren’t into dancing as a means of staying warm.

 

Thankfully, the festival booked a lineup that leaned toward the rump-shaking side of things. That resulted in a record crowd of 8,200, according to organizers. With a crowd of 8,000 for the festival’s finale at Electric Avenue last week, 2023 was a record year for attendance.

 

Rifflandia offered the strongest assembly of artists of its six-day run on Saturday, with everyone from soul legend Mavis Staples and pop act lovelytheband among the early highlights.

 

The festival hit a peak around 8 p.m. when New York rap icons Salt-N-Pepa hit the stage. The schedule had been shifted late in the day to accommodate the duo’s surging popularity among Victoria festivalgoers, so the rap queens Salt (Cheryl James) and Pepa (Sandra Denton) performed on the main stage, not the side stage as scheduled.

 

It wound up being a shrewd move. The duo were energetic and played their hits with some verve. But it wasn’t until the end of their set that the band earned its billing as the ­second ­headliner on the festival’s ­biggest night of the weekend.

I met a man who had a dream he had since he was twenty. I met that man when he was eighty-one. He said too many people just stand and wait up til the mornin', Don't they know tomorrow never comes.

Taylor Swift did this and it went bad!  Didn't anyone warn Katy?   :rtfm:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katy Perry Sells Music Catalog For Hundreds of Millions—More Than Justin Bieber and Bob Dylan

 

The singer sold the rights to all five of her albums for $225 million to British-based Litmus Music, according to a new report.

 

https://www.entrepre...et-worth/459284

 

 

 

 

Per the BBC, Perry, whose real name is Katheryn Hudson, sold the master recording royalties and publishing rights to all five of her albums, which were previously owned by Capitol Records, to British-based Litmus Music, a subsidiary of the Carlyle Group.

 

Universal Music Group, Capitol's parent company, will continue to own the master rights to the albums.

I’m not sure that dating Taylor Swift is the “greatest catch”.

I’m not really a fan of her personality.

Just to be clear, she’s an 8 at best in physical looks. And in every interview I’ve ever seen, at best a 6 in personality.

Plus after she dumps you she will write a song about you.

She acts like a 17-year-old.  But she is twice that old.

I understand Joe Jonas will soon be back on the market. Maybe he and Taylor can reconnect.

No, she has been hanging with his soon-to-be ex.  She's petty that way.
