Everything Ever's van was broken into last night in New York and the band lost $5000 worth of gear. This is always a bummer, so please learn all the details and find out how to help.
A police report has been filed, as well as a claim with Geico for the damage done to the van itself. We also are in the process of getting the security camera footage that covered right where the van was burglarized. However, we don't have insurance for the gear that was stolen and there's no guarantee that we'll be able to track down whoever did this.

When we finished recording this week's podcast episode I tweeted that it was my favorite we've done in a while. Listening back today while editing I still feel that way. We touch on a lot of bigger overarching themes this week. If you've never given one of our podcasts a try, this would be a good one to start with. With the news about Property Of Zack shutting down we discuss the life of writing online. We talk about what we would want our "legacy" to be, what advice we would have for someone wanting to start their own music blog in 2015, and why sometimes it becomes time to walk away from the things that have defined you. We also answer some reader questions about favorite movies so far...

Dan Buckley, formerly of the band Peace Mercutio, details how the band spent over 50k dollars trying to make it in the music industry.
$51,573.42?! As I was writing this it was difficult for me to look at these numbers now 5 years later and see how irresponsible and ignorant I was. All of the band expenses were on top of my living expenses including school debt and personal loan payments totalling around $48,000. During the course of three years, Id spent more money on the band than on my own living expenses. I could write an entire post breaking down the mistakes in my spending, and I will comment on it more in a later post, but for now, Im going to focus on a lesson that was very...

I almost can't believe all these "ads" that have been created to promote the anti-piracy campaign are real. The ones found from 2007 are just fucked up.
Paul Resnikoff, over at Digital Music News, has a series of fairly graphic anti-piracy ads from Universal Music that it used in Brazil in 2007, each one involving a dismembered body part, implying that downloading music leads to cutting off (or out) pieces of a musicians' body.

Tampa, Floridian band Ovid's Withering have broken up.
Regretfully, I am quitting Ovid's Withering. Recently, we have discovered inexcusable actions by Aaron Rodriguez. Multiple sources have come forward and confirmed that he solicited inappropriate pictures from underage girls. I, without any doubt, believe these accusations to be true and am disavowing him publicly. I, along with the rest of the band, am disgusted by these revelations.

The victims of his indiscretions deserve vindication and I encourage anyone with additional information/accusations to come forward (anonymously or otherwise). He will try to lie his way out of the situation so any additional information is useful....

After a music manager turned down a request for one of her artists to collaborate with another, she got lambasted by the requester because she's a woman. The Huffington Post has the story:
The email from a man called 'Terry' read: "Emma, shame you're female, maybe you'd make a decent manager. It's a male industry so maybe you need to take note of that, and cut your losses. If I need a cleaner - I'll holla at you. Thanks you piece of shit. Terry."
