Clown and Green Day played there and there were only two people in the audience. What happened to Marshal Stacks? It used to be such a ghetto around there. The creek project really helped bring back that neighborhood.

Very sad to see the amount of ignorance, pedantry and arrogance all compacted into one band. Somebody please let these idiots know we're in 2015, and that statism is for ignorant assholes.

It was great seeing Bill Collins play those songs at the memorial. Truly touching.

I suspect Sean Lyons thought he was posting his comment to Indybay or Fireworks. Oh well, we all make mistakes.

Re: “Twenty-Five-Year Record Store Feud Spins Again: Rasputin's Rubble on Telegraph and Haste

I thought that the Rasputins already down the street sells records? If Rasputins plans to close that part of that Rasputins, transfer records sales to the new site, can anyone really claim Amoeba would be negatively affected? All that would have changed is proximity, with the possibility of the new, albeit closer, Rasputin store maybe incrementally bigger. Reminds me when I asked what the managers of a Lodi Grocery Outlet thought when they heard of a planned Walmart near them --- they welcomed it because that meant that much more people to try to lure via competition. Indeed, it appears the Amoeba owner thinks likewise: Amoeba and Rasputins at Telegraph and Haste might make this the West Coast destination intersection of all things vinyl, with each store finding it's own niche, and consumers better off. If Moe's and Shakespeare books can (perhaps only grudgingly, who knows) figure out how to compete in close proximity, why not these two record stores? Good for Amoeba's manager/owner in seeing the silver lining in this!

Re: “Twenty-Five-Year Record Store Feud Spins Again: Rasputin's Rubble on Telegraph and Haste

I think that "Moorish palace" structure is spectacular. If it comes out anything like the architect's renderings, it'd be a most welcome change from the timid banality of most 'modern' architecture going up these days.

However this Sarachan character seems so shady that it's unlikely any such building project will ever come to fruition, especially one so aesthetically and logistically ambitious. Fingers crossed though!

Re: “Twenty-Five-Year Record Store Feud Spins Again: Rasputin's Rubble on Telegraph and Haste

More of the same. In another five years we'll be reading basically the same article, filled with a new array of nonsensical 'plans' from the fertile imagination of Ken Sarachan. It's amazing how he's outmaneuvered the city of Berkeley for so many years...all in order to spite his competition.

Re: “Zoë Keating Fights YouTube to Control Her Music and Reputation

While I agree that the second Billboard article (from January 29) is far less sympathetic to Keating in regards to her dealings with YouTube, it seems like because of that shift some of what's there may have been taken the wrong way.

Billboard's "These responses go against descriptions of the agreement presented to Keating (and transcribed by her) by YouTube previously, and presumably represent an update to the contract's terms." was described as "Billboard even appeared to imply doubt about Keating's note-taking", but I don't take it that way. It sounds, to me, like Billboard was saying exactly the same thing Keating did via email: That what YouTube is now claiming are the contract terms is different from what they've been telling Keating over the past year, so they seem to have made revisions in response to the media attention.
