How Much Do Artists Really Make Of Distribution?


192641_800x600

In 2010, data journalist and information designer David McCandless published an infographic on his Information is Beautiful website showing how much musicians earned online from sales and streams of their music.  It caused quite a stir within the music industry, which even then was debating what the emergence of streaming services like Spotify would mean for artists. In 2015, that debate is still going on, and it’s even more heated.  Now McCandless has created a new version of the infographic, updated for 2015.

As before, it digs in to stats from various digital music companies, from the likes of Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon that sell music, to streaming services: Spotify, Deezer, Apple’s Beats Music, Rhapsody, YouTube and Tidal.  Besides calculations for how much an artist can expect to earn from a single sale or stream, the infographic shows how many of those sales or streams they’d need to earn the US monthly minimum wage of $1,260.  Some important caveats: these numbers apply to performing musicians, but they do not include publishing royalties for the songwriting. Plus, the most important factor in how much an artist signed to a label earns is the terms of their contract: some have good, fair deals. Others… less so.

Averaging that out is also the reason why the figures here may not match those announced by the streaming services.  For example, Spotify says that its average payout for a stream to labels and publishers is between $0.006 and $0.0084 but Information Is Beautiful suggests that the average payment to an artist from the label portion of that is $0.001128 – this being what a signed artist receives after the label’s share.  Finally, the per-play figures for streaming service can be misleading, as they depend on how many (or few) users the service has. Beats may pay more per-stream than Spotify, but that’s because it has relatively few users.

Thank God for Villains and Creeps.


Matrix-Reloaded-Villains-villains-7482655-1600-1200What is it exactly that makes a movie antagonist memorable?  It’s not just how many innocent people they dispense of, their powers or abilities, or even their look.  Sorry to say, but the Matrix 2 twins (pictured above) are NOT good villains.  After the 2014 Oscars, DJ Storm got together with some friends, and discussed the heroes montage presented at the award show.  There were many a hero that could have been added to the list, but more importantly it was noted that without incredible villains, those heroes wouldn’t have had a chance to show what they were made out of.   So in the first custom djstormsblog video, we present to you our list of SOME of cinema’s most memorable villains.   [NOTE: Horror Movie baddies were specifically left out, we didn’t forget about them.  And this video does have some foul language.]

Guardians of the Galaxy Official Trailer.


guardiansofgalaxylarge1Every child at some point envisions themselves as a superhero at one point in their young lives.  The thrill of being adventurous, and saving the world is something an imaginative mind cannot resist.  Later on in life, people realize that heroes are flawed, and that the hero they thought they could be is a different from the hero they may actually be like the most.  Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel Studios newest addition to the “Phase 2” line up.  A rag-tag band of misfits who come together under inopportune circumstances has to save the galaxy after their leader steals an object of incredible power.  Marvel’s plan is to use this film to introduce viewers to Thanos (The big purple guy at the end of Avengers), and you can see the link through ‘The Collector’, who appears in the trailer below, and in the post credits scene proceeding Thor 2.  But after reading much more of Marvel’s comics, I’m starting to realize that as much as I admired Tony Stark, I may in fact have more similar personality traits to Star Lord. #frown.  Check out the first trailer for Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ below.
