What I did the past year: Jett – Official Trailer

Last year Johnny and I started writing the first suites for Jett, a series about a female thief trying to make it in an ever more hostile underworld.
It was great fun and we wrote some interesting, fresh, funky and quirky music for it that I’m really proud of. Hopefully we will soon get to post some of that music as well. The music in the trailer is not ours as is the case with trailers most of the time.

Anyway, I’m very excited and the series premieres on June 14th already, so get your first screens ready and don’t bother to lock your doors, because Jett will get in.

Putting the music to the episodes was a delight, especially because both Sebastian Gutierrez (the show creator and director) and editor Matt Mayer where very clear and precise in their ideas and communication about the music, which can sometimes be a very tricky thing to put into words.

This sounds like an exit strategy to me: average salary of Spotify employees hit $132,301 last year – double what it was in 2011

They are making out like bandits and once the business model implodes, they’re out and have their money, while artists lost many years in decent revenue flow.

It’s a scam.

This must be that internet that must not be regulated in any way… wake up, people!

Amazon likes to think of its marketplace as a merchant meritocracy where the best products get the best reviews by virtue of quality and honest consumer feedback.But the vast size of the platform, coupled with a ferocious competition among sellers to get higher product rankings, has spawned a problem: A proliferation of fake reviews.
