  Scientists admit that science isn’t realPDF files may take a moment to load

A shocking announcement was made this weekend concerning the entire scientific field: science isn’t real. Apparently everything from
Galileo to Hawking is one big lie. The ancient Greeks started making up conjectures, but scientists have simply become better at making these conjectures sound legitimate. Copernicus thought he was pushing it with the whole ‘earth revolves around the sun’ thing, but that went over pretty well. Einstein knew science was a farce, so he just made up the most mind-blowing and unbelievable theories.

Before things get too crazy, let’s just be sure everyone is doing this for the right reason.

The art of music has evolved from having an emphasis on performance into more of a marketing rat-race. Artists are hyping music by trying to get views on YouTube, downloads on iTunes, shares on Facebook and hits on Bandcamp. In a music industry where the charts are dominated by “Call Me Maybe” and Justin Bieber lookalikes, social media gives opportunities for aspiring musicians to showcase their music. However, our savvy social networking generation is losing the essence of raw, honest, in-the-moment live music.
