Saw this in my office parking lot:
More of a Garfunkel and Oates fan myself. I would have supported a ticket for them if they had decided to run last year. Oh well.
That dude is Out of Touch.
Well, i suppose Murphy does want to go ‘One on one’ with Krugman.
Last week youtube just zapped for copyright violation my video (posted long ago) of H&O on SCTV recorded in Detroit off Canadian TV with a Canadian health insurance ad (which the Canadians seemed to enjoy) plus the cast of “Chariots of Eggs”. Someone else seems to have copied it and reposted it.
Stephan Kinsella’s got your back.
Keep an eye out for his debate with Robert Wenzel about Intellectual Property (ignore the title of the page, below, for the moment):

SPECIAL EDITION: Wenzel versus Kinsella on IP
Not a huge Hall and Oates fan, but I do like the bass line to Billy Jean, which apparently MJ ripped off from a H&O song. So they get props from me for that.
Heh I never heard that, but once you said it I assumed it referred to “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do).” Here’s the scoop.
And Hall and Oates “borrowed” It from someone else.
That is entirely inescapable in music, because while there are infinite ways of phrasing them, there are still only 12 notes in standard western equal temperament music. Also those notes, series of notes, chords, progression, rhythms, melodies, etc; and how they are used, is culturally and idealistically influenced based upon what order of these things is pleasing to the ear. There is not a single song that is entirely original, all music contains elements of other songs, some are less overt than others, but you still find the same progressions, movements, rhythms and beats, and the melody (if broken down into bits and pieces) will contain fragments of other melodies. It is very similar to language in that respect.
Another argument against IP?
While I am personally anti-IP, what I said above is not an argument for or against IP, it is merely a statement of facts.
Anybody that understands music theory can quickly prove that all songs are related, derivative, or have borrowed and/or stolen from others (music theory almost tends toward such a case). Like I said, it is entirely inescapable.
You mean like so?:
How to Solve a Song with Math by Karen Cheng, Ep 85
Joe, scroll down on my blog for some Nyman/Mozart
Ha. I also found that video on Phillip Glass interesting.
There is no doubt that music is mathematical, but most musicians aren’t thinking of math when they write.
Nor are karaokeans. o.O
Dubin/Warren for me.
