OUR C.L.A.T.A. CHICK ANJ CAME ACROSS AN ARTICLE THAT MIGHT INTEREST YOU ANDORA USERS. TAKE IT AWAY ANJ!!
Our friends over at Campus Progress spoke to Pandora Radio Founder and CEO on Thursday. Tim Westergren shinned some light on evil record labels and his opinion on major changes to the music industry that artists and consumers can expect to see in the coming years.
He also shinned some light on that annoying "Are You Still Listening" message that pops up on Pandora every once in a while. ..
"Pandora operates under what's called a statutory license. A federal law called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act governs our industry. Following the DMCA, we pay what's called a performance fee, which is a per-song fee that goes to the performers of the songs. It's actually split half to musicians and half to the record label."
Aaaaahhh, so you do actually pay the artists whose songs are played on Pandora. And keep the tunes coming to us for free. That's what's up!

Alphanumeric's Weapon of Art t-shirt brings awareness to the U.S. Government's constant spending on warfare - the military budget for 2009 is at an alarming $651.2 billion - meanwhile education cutbacks include elimination of arts and music programs, reduction in staff and overall school funding. The A#47 t-shirt graphic pays creative homage to the artistic tools of the trade which truly makes it a "Weapon of Art."I LOVE CLOTHING LIKE THIS THAT ALSO SHOWCASE A PURPOSEFUL GRAPHIC. GOODTIMES. YOU CAN COP IT HERE.-- ROBUSTFLAVOR.COM

Beth, Paul, Gavin and Emma
AK-47, Bersa .380, Ruger P345
Paul: My family had guns the whole time I was a kid. then i went off and joined the army and went away and come back. I have guns now largely for the same reason I have fire extinguishers in the house and spare tires in the car. I'm a self reliant kind of guy. and there could come a time when I need to protect my family and i'm a self reliant kind of guy.
Beth: I have one for self protection. I was raised to never rely on anyone else to protect me or watch my back. It took me a year to pick out one that I liked.
THE C.L.A.T.A. CHICKS ARE TOO EXCITED ABOUT MS.HENSON'S RECOGNITION FOR HER ROLE AS "QUEENIE" IN THE HIT FILM THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON (which i have yet to see, i didn't even know she was in that movie!).
