This is a bit of a simplification, but dude's just got $5 million for a music blog. What?!
From Blown Speakers is currently for sale for a six pack and a couple slices of Numero Uno... like, if you're looking for an investment that will be worth nothing
not to get all sellout-watch or anything, but the quality of posts has gone down ever since they started posting 40times a day and you couldn't tell if it was Scott who wrote the post. an no amounts of "shitty indie bands cover some shitty mainstream band" albums makes up for that.
oh... it totally blows now. half of it reads like they cut and pasted from PR emails... but $5 mil... sell out or not. i'd sell out a blog for $5 mil. that's hilarious.
somehow, there's no way to monetize file sharing, but apparently a blog is worth $5 million dollars.
