And given me the privilege of communicating with others being a part of something bigger than myself autism now handing over the word ridden and shed over the years for fake off certainly does not mean tied in this context. This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists. Your job is to keep plane so that you keep developing your audience when people find you they can then join the dots and get a more complete picture of y you share is relevant to them. Those articles that received little traffic into nineteen are important in the context of your overall efforts.

When he sold his six hundred songs universal music for how we find out. If what you share has worth you would. Immediate has been around every week apart from some short breaks since october. Two thousand thirteen almost eight years. Now here's why building a back. Catalog of content provides vani in both the short and long after the first one. Is this over time. People see the value provide be prepared to play. The long game is so important. I wonder where ought be now if i hadn't been producing content every week for you at the median. I reckon it would be somewhere where i am today when people recognize. Your work is something that they can get behind you have a license to develop momentum secondly it can support your wider efforts. Your back catalog makes it easier to introduce for new initiatives. The one thing that has remained constant from me has been my writing. This was the tree. I planted back in twenty thirteen and new branches of grown. It made introducing in person and then online live events easier. Don't think of the word you produce in isolation look at it as a way to connect your intentions and third lake is greater use beyond the immediate space producing a back. Catalog extend your scope by this. I mean what stance a piece of work in one channel can extend into other formats. For instance blogs have become talked topics for other people's podcast. One single article became a webinar in april. Twenty twenty on your first ten email subscribers the next point is that it becomes and it brings people closer or from people. The proof of the work. You've already done helps you by helping them. Make a decision go back catalogue in contrast to say tha that competitors whose output may be more sporadic demonstrates perseverance. Next point is that it contributes to sales while message of this. You the media online. That i'm talking to you now is not around selling your business based on your content. Your work can be indirectly related to revenue for instance. The world you produce can also present a way to sell products and services but in a way that isn't merely emphasizing for instance being a trusted business increases the impact. You can make and this links to one of the aspects of what the month of learning represents a recent podcast looked at the impact of trust. Next is your were becomes a reference and search to your back catalogue can become a place for us to take from an somewhere. Search engines recognize websites. We've over three hundred and eleven index pieces of work c. Two hundred and thirty six percent more traffic than no sign of not too many pages and this is ups ball. What this means. Is that the better. Your ongoing work is indexed. There is more for a search engine to look through and support your search rankings ultimately ultimately want visit us to stick around on your site for that you need to offer work they will enjoy and lastly grow from it. The more you practice delivering something the better you become by learning. How the audio space works. I've become a better speaker by sharing a short video every week for the of the media weekly email. I think become a better presenter by writing every week. I've become a stronger writer. Whilst as an emphasis on creating roughness never forget this contributes to your own personal development. Let's roundup similar to writing and sherry music. You just put all your effort into a once a year christmas. Oh you have to keep introducing new material. That can stand the test of time all comes down to having that ability to keep going is what you're creating talking to be worth. Something is what you're producing contributing to your overall message actions in commercial delivery to give you the freedom to play an experiment. Why if your entire back catalogue disappear tomorrow but people let you know what they show concern. You're back catalogue is your commercial worth directly and indirectly and it's important to keep on playing for the audience as you show up to it
Porn and the Pandemic: A study in adaptability
"You might have seen the joke. And it is still mostly a joke going around the Internet. Another one of millions of jobs around world is lost to this pandemic and person who lost it whether they work in hospitality or media government or whatever takes to social media and with a rueful tone says ow well. I guess it's time to start my only fans account and people laugh. But only a little because another job has been lost and this year sucks. If. There are winners and twenty twenty though. Only fans is a big one. Like so much on the Internet it was a website created to allow people to connect with one another. and its technology offered a chance for creators. To monetize their fans by letting them subscribed to their feeds for a monthly fee exclusive content. And like so much on the Internet that technology was immediately used to make pornography. And really, all this couldn't have come at a better time not only was everyone stock at home all the mainstream pornography studios were shuttered for health reasons and all the performers needed work. So they went to work for themselves on only fans. So what has all this done to a porn industry that is constantly changing? His this next iteration, fleeting or permanent where is the line now between the mainstream pornography industry and the amateur people making money online. And is there a technology out there anywhere on the Internet that can't be used for porn? Okay, that last question was rhetorical. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Lena macete is the producer of the last days of August and the butterfly effect. She's also a producer at this American life. She may be the podcast producer who knows the most about Porn Hello Lena. Hi. How are you? I'm doing really well, and maybe for people who haven't listened to the butterfly effects can you try to describe a how profoundly the porn industry has changed even over say the last five or seven years in how quickly it changes in general? Yeah. I mean it's changed dramatically since we made the butterfly effect which I believe we started reporting on Wiezman, Jon Ronson I was working with the a journalist Jon Ronson on both of those two series that you mentioned and I, believe we started reporting on it in two thousand sixteen and the question we were looking at in the butterfly effect was how has This relatively new access to unlimited porn for free that anyone can access on the Internet. How has that impacted the lives of the actual people making it? and. So basically, there's this company in Montreal. It's called his right now called minded Geek believe at the time it was called mind freak and originally I think it was called man win they run a website called porn hub they actually they own a bunch of streaming websites but they but porn hub for our purposes is like the one we're paying close attention to because it's the most visited porn site it regularly ranks as like one of the top ten most visited websites in America you know beside Google and twitter. And so the the reality of porn in two thousand sixteen is that a lot of it was still being made professionally. So in the US, it's made in Los Angeles in San Francisco in. Las Vegas and in Florida which means people are using budgets to pay actors and directors and sound people to make porn But then that porn is being uploaded illegally, it's being pirated to porn hub. Like Youtube just for porn, which means that the consumer isn't paying for it and the the question we were trying to get the answer to was like. How has it impacted porn people's livelihoods, and basically, what are they doing to make up for lost cash and what did the industry due to adapt to Mine Guiquan and the porn hub model? I mean the answer to that like you're you're right to point out that it's always changing like it's it's always changing to the point that before I got on the phone with you today I called one of the performers that we speak to in butterfly effect just to like catch up on what has happened in the last couple of weeks like it. It really does change all the time at the time the the answer hovered around custom porn, which is still what I would call it cust important. So that's porn that. A consumer can order directly from a performer that they like and often it. It breaks down to poor like basically for someone to reach out to a porn performer and ask them to make video in exchange for like one five, ten, thousand dollars It's because they have a specific kink or there's something they're interested in an otherwise can't find on the Internet and there's billions of hours of porn on the Internet. So when you're when you're to the point where you're looking for custom videos. More often than not is. So specific that like it might only apply like you might be the only person in the world who has the specific proclivity. So a lot of our series focused on custom porn on how like people who are made famous as mainstream porn stars are supplementing their income by making these custom videos

Jennifer Justice, entertainment exec and founder, The Justice Department
"I loved what you said about figuring out what it is about you. That's different regardless of how you grew up or your circumstances. What was that for you? And when did you start to figure that out? You know it takes a while. You're like there's no in there telling you you're great and you deserve to be here and I would see people reacting me in a different way and it took a long time it took. It took some therapy at took an executive coach really to be like you have these patterns in your life and I started seeing that when I talked and advocated for people all. It was different than other people doing it. I was really doing it from a place of I knew it was the right thing to do. And even though there were financial benefits it wasn't just like being an activist. It was really advocating for people who deserved what I was asking for an almost getting a lot of that. Push back on it. I was like okay. I'm really onto something. Because if they're just GONNA capitulate than obviously wasn't asking for an off and so it kind of drove me and I knew that that thing was that I was really good at advocating and really good at marrying art and commerce. When did you start getting into the world of US editions and entertainers? So I mean even when I was in Seattle I was hanging out in the grunge scene. You know we didn't know the whole world was paying attention even though we all these bands have been signed and not albums out. It's small in comparison to New York and so I just identify with most of them from my background. You know and they weren't college educated. Are I WANNA jump into Jay z? just lay some groundwork hair. Where was Jesse his career? How old was he roughly us about what he just recorded? The hard knock life hadn't come out yet and so she was probably what twenty eight twenty nine and he'd really reasonable doubt volume on and he was about to release hockey. It's right before he becomes a superstar. Yeah what was your first meeting with him. Like I had been a fan of reasonable doubt which when I interviewed at Carol Grade on and they're like how do you even know who he is? You know because it's an amazing at that point as many copies as it has now and then we had to go to a meeting. Def Jam which was a tiny company at the time and I'm met him for the first time walking in so only seen a picture of him and I didn't realize how tall he was and hoskin skinny was. Are you like Mr Carter? It's nice to meet you or like Jay Z. No he liked leans over in the introduces himself. And I always like. Oh I'm your day. What does he yeah? I'm Jay now it's like I'm your new attorneys. Oh you're jj you know. And that's what we're not does he call you. J. J. Yeah J. J. my good friend Jay. He's famous for being an incredible businessman. He is known to be Astute at identifying business opportunities optimizing for them and obviously doing really well and making money. How did you get him to trust you? He knew that I was fighting for him. You know that really cared about what his assets were how he should be treated and I just saw really early on. I mean hip hop wasn't even on you. Know live telecast of the grammys. At the time they didn't even have a billboard chart separate for it and he came out breaking all these records you know he just saw how much you know. I fought for him and cared about making sure. He got what he deserved. I'm just fascinated. What was your lifelike at this point? We're you going out with these guys every day all the time all the time. How does that work? When you're the lawyer going out with them at that would make me like very very anxious. Yeah so I mean look. I listened things. You don't get involved in the entertainment attorney right. So there's no company in the ministry that is open before ten. Am there's no reception. Nobody's answering the phone before ten and then a lot of shows are at night so it just is you know what I mean. And it's just the way that the business works the you know. There are a lot of us running around together all the time they were in it and it was a lot of fun. How old are you roughly at this time? Mid Twenties like a young kid. Yeah but you're US superstar lawyer superstar lawyer. How did you ensure that you were respected as a professional while also socializing with your clients and I'm GonNA assume maybe not the most professional settings board room at night? How did you find that balance? Well I didn't to be honest with you. I was just going along because all the guys were to right and I was like well. You know it's fine everybody else's out and then there was a shift actually and I started to realize that one client in particular not any of them that I've mentioned and he's in a little bit of a different genre Saami outlet at night and was like I don't like my lawyer being out late and I was like okay but I was with your male lawyer and you didn't say anything about that that's when I really started to see because again I didn't have any mentorship so I didn't know that women are treated differently in Business. I didn't know there were glass ceilings and then all of a sudden I was like. Oh there's a double standard and what was your reaction to that at first I was like. Oh my God you're right. This is awful and it was like wait a minute. No this is not cool because I'm in the same room with other male attorneys other managers. Other you know accountants. This is the music industry music. Entertainment Law. We're not curing cancer solving world world. Peace here so it was very eye-opening to me when I think about some of the people that you've worked with even early on whether it's Mark Ronson obviously Jay Z. Back in the day and then you know to what he is today and beyond say specifically talking about those people it's a mix of creatives who have strong business intuition. How do you think through when there is a creative idea that super compelling but the business around it just doesn't necessarily make sense thus the thing it's like the creative and the business half to meet and if they don't then you know whoever it is my clients they have to make the decision? Do they want to fund it? Is this a nonprofit that you partner with a museum you have to do the math and give them all the options? What could really be the outcome? Is it you paying for it? Is it finding philanthropists to pay for it or returning in this into a real business? And that's my job is helping them Mary. Art and

"<music> uh I would always say Gaga would tell me these stories when we'd be in the beginning like it's so nice that you listen because you don't know like most of these fucking out here. These is producing households and I I believe there but I would just more like befuddled like rushmore befuddled. I guess more like why you're in Rome with someone who's incredibly talented and really good. Why don't you just shut up this like where it is ego coming? You're like in the get in the way live making good art because you have to make this girl know that you're the boss. Mark Ronson is an Oscar and grammy winning producer. WHO's behind some monster monster hits from any wine houses rehab to uptown funk with Bruno Mars too shallow by Lady Gaga to nothing breaks like a heart with Miley Cyrus?

"ronson" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Not only just the ways I even remember. Asking her to change a line in the chorus because they just she said, we only say goodbye and words, I died a thousand times. And I'll say that, that doesn't rhyme like my first instinct was like, as a producer like that has to rhyme. It's the chorus and she was like, gee want to change it. And she just looked at me like I was crazy. She was like how can I change it? Like that's what came out, you know. So, like, you know, usually when we're sitting in songwriting sessions with changing things million times that you're just going like, well, how can we make this better for her? It was such as honesty, that, like, whatever came out like that, that is those in my feeling thinking, can't to change it would be in authentic or something, and so interesting because you've said this before that you do your best work with strong, honest women were like lady Gaga like Amy White House like Adele. So in the process, is there push back a lot, you work all night, bringing them a beat in the song, and they go, Nope, no good. Yes. Sometimes like with Amy. It was really. Really lucky because most of the time it was presenting ideas or arrangements are she would play me her songs on an acoustic guitar, right? The cores down because some of them will quite complicated jazz courses, she'd have to write like diagrams for me it. So I could remember how to play when she left, and then I would come up with inter step on night come up with an arrangement. And usually she, she liked that one time she came in. I think I was a bit spoke because I being used to four days in a row of her like being into what I was doing and I played it for, and she was like not like I was like, oh, so I go into panic mode. What if I change this, or if you like if I take this sound out, she's like I just don't like it like, what's the point changing panic even more like maybe this part you don't like she's like she's like, why China fix it? If it's said that go ahead for she's like, why trying to fix it. And I was like that such a good thing is in this judio. There's all this thing about diplomacy, and Dan. Around ideas because somebody's ideas are very personal thing extension feelings. But like it is good to like that kind of honesty like it's not good. Why are you? Trying to make me something that I did that my initial instinct was to not like it. So that kind of brazen honesty can heart. Sometimes it was like I carry that with me all the time. I mean, her voice is of like in my head's time to time, especially in the studio because, you know, it's just such a good barometer of like honesty, where you're working now again with a bunch more honest, women very talented women for your new album. Yes. What did you want to say with this new album because you've said, you know, you're sort of known as the party guy, the deejay, you make hits. But this comes it seems to me anyway, from a bit of a different place. Yeah. Well, when I started this hour them, and like when I start most of my records, I'm kind of, like searching. For a concept to like something to because I don't sit down. I'm not seeing all this. I'm not saying that Pia. No because there's a few different singers, usually, I need like something to anchor it. So it feels like a record and usually, that's like maybe a sonnet concept. Like with version, it was all covers of these songs with horns and my last album, Jeff Bhaskar, and I had producer took a Roach through the deep south and went to all these churches were like trying to get to like, you know, this feeling of, like, you know the arm being the sole music. We loved and this time I was kind of. Little flouting for. I didn't know what it was. And then everything that I went to the studio was working on that really resonated, had this melancholy tinge. And I was like, I guess I was like, oh, I guess I'm making like the like the break-up album. I guess without, you know, my marriage ended and I, I never thought in my own music is like, channeling emotion. I'm always like, oh, that's what I do. When I go work with these people on their records lady Gaga clean to the stone age. Whatever, on my record is supposed to be a party like who wants to your TJ's feeling like you want to go to the club and the guys like I had a tough day today like over the music. So, so, but that's what happened. That was the only music that I was working on the really resonated to that. I wanted to work on the next day like coming back to this year the next day that we with these songs so late night, feelings detract with leaky leaves the first one, and then don't leave me lonely with with you have it was the second one that really was. Like, okay, I understand, I can be a little motion will be vulnerable channel these things with these other people, but it can still be dancy and sort of have that. Like you know that I guess I just DJ element that it's in the rhythm driving rhythm that I still like need him. I music. Is that scary at all Defillo? You're sort of opening yourself up to the world and exposing your your life in a way you haven't before with us album. I guess, you know, I mean so many people contributed lyrics in emotions like we had the parameters of what the record was because that was what I was going through. You know, it's kind of, it's kind of everybody's feelings in the pub, but I've not so scared because they've sort of like it's just helped me make what I think, is my best music because it's like it's funny that when I go to work on somebody else's record. I always craved this like honesty, and vulnerability and always pushing the more and more, like, no, no, no. I don't. I don't I don't buy that. But yet with my own records like never done that. So I guess it's just like. I don't mind faring. Very myself on it, because it just it feels like it's the right thing to do, and it feels like it's better because of thirty got hits. Nothing breaks like a heart with Miley Cyrus. I wish she someone you had your eye on that you wanted to work with and hadn't. Yeah, I, I'd seen her sing fifty ways to leave your lover on the SNL fortieth and because it was such as Spicer range, and I heard all that twang and the country rasping her voice, and I'd never heard that before. And I was like, what Jean TV and like I just stopped dead in my life. I remember not like info, glued to the TV watching the and I called my manager, Brandon and I will say, can you like do you know have any into my Sarah's? Like I wonder like ask if she ever wants to do a record like that. Like I just heard of voice, I'm just kind of obsessed and so, basically four years of texting and like not trying to look like a stalker. But, like definitely I think I texted her first and she just sent back like. Maybe emojis. She says she doesn't even have a grandmother's numbers stored. So she didn't even know who I was. I went to a dead pets show like backstage kind of, like, hey, like, and then I guess, four years later, you know, as in the in the studio working on with ill, see Juba this song writer who I worked a lot with on this album. And she said, I want to write this chorus like about, like all these things break. But, like nothing breaks a heart and it sounded so beautiful and timeless and she had the idea for the course and I was like my SARS would be so perfect for this. She never writes me back. But what the hell I'm gonna fire like one more. Hell Mary, and, and she was like, yeah. Cool like a year round Tuesday like it was just such a like shock. And, and so she came to Shangri LA where we were working in Los Angeles. And she, she kind of like it's never really met her before. She's amazingly like funding. Talking about life. And we're just talking about all these things for three or four hours. Then suddenly she's like I go saying, like just to see if it sounds good during the course before you're going further. And I was like, yeah. And it was just so funny that you can just do this like. About-face suddenly going there and sing them with the most one of the most beautiful vocals, like she's one of my favorite voices. I've ever recorded and then she liked it, and she came back in and she wrote the rest of the verses. And so it was like a really. Yeah. It was a I guess it's a, it's a good thing. She said this before that we didn't really work earlier, because life experience and whatever happened, we would have written, probably a different song. So maybe she stored your number now, hopefully you've made the cut, I think, so. Yeah, I think we're gonna go listen to a little the music. That's our overview, cool. Thanks, stick around to hear more from Mark Ronson on the Sunday sit down podcast, including a peak in the studio and his new album. What's.
"ronson" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Guest is seven time, Grammy winner, and now Academy Award winner and Golden Globe, winner and a bunch of other award winner, Mark Ronson. He is the famed deejay and producer behind so much of the music you hear on the radio. He got his big breakthrough working with Amy wine house twelve years ago on her seminal album back to black that one bunch of Grammy's. He partnered up with her. He has since worked with Adele. He is a man behind uptown funk. The monster hit that was number one for fourteen weeks with Bruno Mars few years back, and he is the man behind lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper song shallow from the movie stars born, which is where he won his Oscar alongside lady Gaga fascinating guy. Born in London raised in New York City. His stepfather is Mick Jones. Guitarist from foreigner. So he sort of grew up in this universe of musicians. His mother was a well-known woman around New York City big parties in their apartment that a young Mark Ronson would wake up to he talks about that. Mick Jagger walking through the house. Robin Williams was another name, Bruce Springsteen, just a crazy upbringing, and then got into DJ gotta set at turntables when he graduated from high school and started working parties downtown. Got bigger and bigger started doing wedding started meeting musicians offering to work with them. He was heavily influenced by hip-hop in the late nineteen eighties nineties, he's forty three years old will be forty four this year. So kind of came of age that time when hip hop was going mainstream. And we disad down in this famed studio electric lady studios in Greenwich Village in New York City, born from the great Jimi. Hendrix was his studio and so much music from the seventies Ford has been written. Composed in that very place in. It's where lady Gaga did the vocals for shallow so to where he likes to work. Mark ronson. I got together to talk about what exactly a producer does what does it mean to be a producer? I get that question in television lot. What does it producer do? So we sat down with Mark Ronson on the eve of the release of his latest solo album, late night, feelings, which includes already a big hit nothing breaks like a heart his song with Miley, Cyrus a really interesting conversation. If you love music with Mark Ronson from electric lady studios right now on the Sunday sit down podcast. Thanks for doing this Mark per shipment. Thank you. Can we talk first about the room we're in right now and significance of this place for people who don't know? Okay. So this is actually lady studios. Famously you know, built and designed by Jimi Hendrix. I think in nineteen seventy I was a nightclub before. And I guess the only thing that serve leftover is these Mira. On the back because there was some kind of psychedelic artists that Jimmy loves, and he was, like he's going to come and paint it. I don't know so much about, like Tom, and I just know this is like Jimmy's place. Right of a see through the seventies Pink Floyd and a lot of the things that happened here, and then the late eighties early nineties fell into a bit of district disrepair was a bit. Like, like there weren't a lot of people coming in, and then with Di Angelo, and the roots, and that whole movement. Eric do common. It's suddenly became the place again with new owner. So since then, it's been like daft punk Radiohead. But it was really the Angelo FU because there was so much mythology around that record that, that sort of put it back made the whole Frank ocean Tyler that the young generation, they kind of I think turned on to think about the Rolling Stones being here. Bowie or Dylan. Yeah. Does that do you feel that sense of history when you're recording in a place like this? I feel like I like feeling the walls feel like whoa. Born in like there's something about these things, and also the desire to these studios in the eighty studios got more modern. They found new scientific ways to divide sounder separated. But like you're never going to get better than like would an felt like that. It's just like these things that, you know, make this place a bit like about or spaceship, in the seventies is what makes me feel home. And I do think maybe it's like walking and knowing the history that just there's just history. There's just it's just in the room. It sounds so hokey but there's something that's pretty special. There was in the men's room, a minute ago, thinking, my God, if the walls of this bathroom could talk. Yeah. Over fifty years. Yeah. Things they've seen in here, but it's not just history. The places significant to you as well. So much of your work from the beginning to as recently as a few months ago here. Yeah, definitely. It is really one of the last you know, unfortunately, the great studios in. New York, New York City must've close this is one of not only is an amazing studio. Also, one of the last, so if since my first record ever producing could cost all the way through two different albums I worked on two right now. And uptown special late-night feelings was all worked on somehow here. You wanna Grammy and Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and probably a bunch of other awards. I don't even know about for shallow, right lady Gaga spoke holes online, film critics society you go while let you fill out the list that if I just had ceiling. Lady Gaga recorded her vocals, right? Upstairs. Yes. I think people be really interested in a song like that, that they know in love. So well, yeah. About from your standpoint as a producer, how that comes together. Okay. How do you begin to make so well, I was working with lady Gaga on JoAnne. I kind of unknown since just when she was starting out like maybe town eleven years ago and just dance is just starting up. And I even though she's telling his younger than me, there's just like she grew up, two blocks from me on the Upper West side. There was just something super familiar. I was like I couldn't own her growing up just that New York edge that you have, and, you know, t- ten years later, she wanted to work on some music together, and we went in the studio and started working on JoAnne, and in the middle of that she was in talks with Bradley to work on stars born, and she's like, all right. I wanna take a couple weeks out to work on these songs stars born. She was really passionate about it. She wanted to get this role via part of this film and in my head. I'm like, okay. It's a I've been brought in here to, to JoAnne, like I'm always thinking, like the labels, like, hey, come on, like this record out by September this stars born detour seems like it could be a bit of like a waste. But I was like the clock is ticking. Yeah. As a producer, sometimes that's job. But I could see she was very passionate about it was important to her. So we so we worked on some songs, and she had this idea for this chorus and she came in sat at the piano, and she likes to work. Sometimes when you're writing asong everyone sits around, piano, acoustic guitar, just starts throwing ideas around. She likes everybody to put headphones on and she actually has the mic. So her voice is so specialized so much different characteristics to it that, like hearing, the nuance like that close with they have on the air, while you're writing really does steer like how the song goes like you hear little motion of broken part of waste, and you suddenly like oh, and you get it gives you this feeling so. So we all me and my friends, Andrew and Anthony that I brought into session, we sat down and all these headphones. It's almost like strapping into the spaceship. It's kind of like this procedure, and it, it, it does make it kind of like exciting like okay we're about to embark on something. And I remember it was like it was it was late. There was, I think everybody was just going through something. Everybody was having a bit of a trying time with whatever relationship life like it just felt like everybody was wanting to go to his own that night. And, and she just saying that I'm the deep end, and it was sort of like off to the racist. She was kind of like, clamming around on the piano, finding the cords, and then and you had these courts for the verse and started strumming them. And she just maybe the third thing she sung out was that tell me something, and all my has stood up, and I think, just hearing her voice, I post my year while I was probably going through something like having, like a hug. Or something like that line the way she sings, it is so emotive and, and that was kind of, like that's almost written in probably two sessions over two or three days and had no idea that it would, you know, even make it in the movie, let alone have the trajectory that it did. So well, that's the thing about it. It's not something they're ruled under the closing credits. Right. It was sort of a central plot point, he built around your song. Yeah. So when I first saw the film, I saw the first hour of it, Bradley invited me over to his house. He was editing. He goes, I want to show you the first hour, and I think he showed it to a lot of musicians and people that he respect because it was so important for him to get to music thing. Right. Because usually sometimes in the film if I'm watching it, I don't mind, a little make believe that sometimes when it seems really fake or, you know, he just wanted to get he's so passionate about music and doing the right thing. He wanted to get it right. So I went and saw the film and that. That scene in the parking lot as soon as I saw I was like, oh, my God, they've put our words and it's like in the script, and it's like it's become part of this beautiful part of the movie that falling in love. I love the love story in the film. And, you know, I got chills and then she just sings to him in the parking lot that line. And I was, and then I saw I'm actually sort of getting chills thinking about it now. And then that scene when she first comes on stage that's about where I saw the movie too, and I was just, like I was so moved a because I was, I love what I saw the film and just our piece of music it become so entwined in this thing and the film in the narrative, like pushed the song up in this way as well. So it's funny I called engine Anthony. As soon as I got out of the rallies house. I couldn't dial them pick it up. And I'm like driving out of the drive in, I'm like you guys are gonna be rich now. I was just like. I was just like you're not gonna believe when you see this film, like it's they've taken this piece of music. It's like, you know, and that was still a rough cut. And then when I saw the trailer how that was like I mean, I think it's like one of the best cut trailers, I've ever seen is just like so action packed like like like Sam Elliott getting punched in the face on the air and all these things. And I was like they're really like going out on a I don't know, going out on a limb with the summit. They're taking this thing that we got in there investing in this motion will power that it just by itself. Maybe wouldn't have been quite the same just by those opening chords. Yeah. You know what song you're listening to? Yeah. Is it true, Mark that you help to Gaga or suggested to Gaga that sort of now, Connick famous roar that Gaga moment where she gets on stage and let's rip in her way? No, actually that pot. I think she just came up with on the fly and. It was paying those courts for the bridge. And she just did it, I think, though, in the recording when we first had the demo, she sung, it kind of like in a soft voice, and then somehow it by the time she did it live at the Greek turn into the roar. The part that, you know, we all contributed to the lyrics, and the writing of the part that I guess I suggested was the we'd got this most of the song down, and I was like it's really beautiful. But I just missed that weird Gaga thing that you do like the in the bad romance that, you know how route rod like playing with words like just there can be even though this is an alley song like that can be a little bit of that. So that's when we came up with the in the Shash, shall out of though in the Shah showed like whatever it is, actually. But so so that was like, I guess my contribution to the end. That's the feel that rise. And that's when that song really is. Yeah. I think that sometimes I have a great song. It's like there's just like this one extra. Not. She can take like in the uptown funk who was the same thing. We had the whole thing. And then I was like the came up with uptown funk attempts on your part. And it's like there's just this little extra part, you can kinda sing along and stuff. And then unfortunately, that's the part, we got sued for. But anyway, it was good though worth it with the lawsuit. So how'd you described people because I have this problem in television explaining people what a producer does because they know, your producer, you're more than that, obviously. But how do you describe what you do in a room like this?.
"ronson" Discussed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen

"ronson" Discussed on The Adam Buxton Podcast
"Jon Ronson, the journalist was also retained by Louis and felt that they were being he was irritated by comparisons. Which I never got because I thought, you know, in a very, but that career has gone on and on, and if I had not reinvented it would be a kick in the face, you know, nobody likes to be replaced, and but I don't think anyone ever thought of you is being replaced. You did the kind of you clearly blazed that trail, and then you moved onto other. No, I did move on and better I moved on. Then like leave the party before it leaves you because you would've left at some point, you know, only men can work until their hideous. Whereas women, you know, the first sign of yes. Yes, you're out of there. That is sadly still the case. We're not going to be changed changing think. Yeah. 'cause we're having facelifts because we're having a revolution Rupe? Yeah. Well, I'll be dead by the time. But still I mean, I'm not going on is that all these obstacles. I don't wanna be a cliche. But I said in my show, you know, what made me smart was that. I know how to fail I know how to fail, you know. It doesn't get any easier. But like, I can take you million and work around. It doesn't kill me. I know that there's a great expression that is certain age you either turn into wine or vinegar. And so I had to marinate really quickly. But you've turned into something totally different though. But only through adversity. I would know. But that's how most people do while. Yeah. Who wants to be just carrying on doing the same old shit for their whole career? Yeah. I would I I was already losing my Mojo, you know, it is certain age zany anymore. It must've been fairy stressful doing those shows wasn't it. Well, I was having so much fun. I didn't care. You know what I mean? I was young enough that and I got to stay in really nice hotels, and Clive was hilarious. So the guests were like not the important one. It was really back then I was always into psychology. So I'd studied them underneath laughing haha, but I'd get to put a rubik's cube together as to what made them what? And that was my kick. Yes, why didn't wanna go on and on because they're pretty similar? So this were talking you started doing those kinds of shows towards the end of the no the celebrities were the nineties and two thousands, right? And you talked to well just talking climbing another innovation from that show was having you'll produce a be on screen with you. Yeah. Anyone done that before as well now and that worked really nicely. Yeah..
How Streaming Changed the Sound of Pop
"Exiling that has overtaken pop music in the last six months, which which one I feel like we're poppas of anxiety. So according to many the economics of streaming is changing music. So significantly right now that pop me literally never sound the same again. And today I want to investigate these claims by seeing how musicians are altering their sounds to make it in today's streaming economy and to do this. I've recruited Aishah Hassan, and Dan, cough who have written about how streaming is affecting the sound of pop for courts in a piece called the reason, why your favorite pop songs are getting shorter Asia. Dan the show. Yeah. Thanks nice to be here. This is exciting. Yes. Okay. So in the recent guardian interview mega pop producer. Mark Ronson said that all your songs have to be under three minutes and fifteen seconds because of people don't listen to them all the way to the end. End. They get into this ratio of non complete heard which sends your Spotify writing down and song writers are forced to churn out hits at short order. So I can you untangle Ranson's gripe and explain what is causing so much concern that many music streaming services work as that songs generate money per play. That means every time that there's streamed they generate a certain amount of money, and that's very little so it ranges between zero point zero zero four dollars to zero point zero zero eight dollars. And then if you don't play it to the very end that rating goes down, meaning that people don't listen to the song through as much then the song is less likely to make it into Spotify really lucrative playlists which them streamed more, and because the amount of money so little volume is really important. So this is obviously extremely different from how artists were paid in the past. Right. I think it's important to note that artists right now. According to a report. In two thousand seventeen they're only getting about ten percent of the music industry's total revenue, but streaming so important because that's how they're going to break out. Right. And they're not going to be heard by audiences then less people are going to buy their tickets for their concert. People are going to buy their merch so to be visible. It's really important to sometimes game the streaming system. So more people listen to their stuff. Okay. Gaming, this drinks. There's some sort of sort of perverse incentives going on here and just sort of get sort of order magnitude around this a CD used to cost fifteen to twenty dollars. And how many songs do you have to stream in order to make the equivalent on an old record so thousand streams quivalent of six dollars. So we're talking about fifteen hundred streams to get nine dollars. An and of course in artists probably is only making a fraction of those nine dollars. That's exactly right. The music services tend to take thirty percent of that revenues Spotify or alpha musical, whatever we'll take around thirty percent. And then even though you've got the rest of the money going to artists depending on the deal that they have a record labels and the amount of people who have contributed to the track that money, which is very little at the beginning is split up. Even more so artists are actually getting a very very small amount of money. Okay. So this is interesting. We have two different issues at hand. Now that we have to deal with one as you mentioned this question of our songs getting shorter and sort of why? And then also are there. Certain like time markers are boundaries that you have to fit within is that changing the way that perhaps people are writing music, and so let's take them in that order. So our songs are songs any shorter. Yes. Definitely. Around two thousand the median length of a billboard one hundred songs was well over four minutes about four minutes and seven seconds. And in two thousand eighteen it was just over three and a half minutes. So we've lopped off more than thirty seconds off the average billboard hot one hundred songs. So that's that. So Mark Ronson anxiety that that Charlie quote at the beginning of this episode is is perhaps warranted songs are getting shorter. Yes. And there's also these extreme example. So there are a bunch of songs now that are under two and a half minutes long. So in the two thousands there were virtually no songs under two and a half minutes that made the charts and in two thousand eighteen about six percent of them were less than two and a half minutes, and some even just two minutes, you documented this in your piece, and there's like a hockey stick graph basically starting in. I don't know like twenty fifteen twenty fifteen all the sudden there's all these songs that are now two and a half minutes or shorter you pointed to Connie west and little pumps. I love which comes in at just over two minutes. How correct. So the question of where's the music going curious in in your investigations how much? This is intertwined with the dominance of hip hop as the main form of today's popular music. So it's a coupla hated thing to answer because hip hop has seeped into all genre. So even when you listen to country as you've pointed out in previous shows country now has a hip hop effect. But if you look at every genre. They've all phone Rb rock country. All of them have taken a big dive over the last two decades wrap the most. So it's definitely the biggest phenomenon there. But it's not just a hip hop thing. So on the one hand, we have some different incentive structures set up and just to be clear about them. Minor sending we have songs are getting shorter. Because the way that you get paid with streaming is personal and it used to be since the I don't know the age of album oriented music that the Elbe was the main way that you made a major money. So now, if you're getting paid per song, it makes sense to have like twenty really short songs that might actually run shorter than an album length. That would be ten songs that are twice three times as long, and so you're you're gaming can I get as many songs in. It's possible. Is that is that an accurate description of how some people understanding this? I just want to complicate things a little bit. So yes, we are pretty confident that streaming matters. But this is actually a pretty long term trend. So if we look over the twentieth century, you'll see that songs were quite short in the forties and fifties. And then they got way longer through the latter half of the twentieth century and then starting around the late nineteen ninety s all the way up today, we see songs shortening. So it's definitely got to be more than just dreaming. But we're confident that sort of the effect that we're seeing over the last several years is a result of the desire to make more money from having shorter songs. And if somebody listens to an album repetitively, the artists will get more money, but there's definitely more going on there than just streaming. Okay. So Spotify actually put out a press release about this phenomenon and said that in the world of digital consumption are narrow windows of free time are the object of fierce competition by the seemingly limitless choices streaming platforms present short songs represent solution to an. Audiences abundance of choice alongside endless opportunities for diversion. So there's sort of a question of like our audience is also driving this perhaps. That's that's what they're suggesting. I think what we need to do though is examined the music and see is this really going on. And I'm particular interesting looking at like if psalms are getting shorter what's being put on the chopping block. And so we really established it hip hop is. Most dominant form of pop music right now, go on the billboard sixty seventy percent of the charts are going to be hip hop. And if you also look at the songs, which tend to be shorter, especially these sort of two minute, two and a half minute songs. Lotte hip hop lungs in there as well. And I think there's a there's a part of this which makes sense because in have you don't necessarily have as rigid structure of pop song. You don't necessarily have to have for example, a pre course or post chorus or bridge you can just have hook verse hook verse and you're out. And so when you look song like s and low pumps piece, they're doing exactly that. As you steal. I try. Sparkler one came out. Such a. Sick. Like the quick I'm a sick. Like, let's you to verse piece instead of you know, you go back to nineties hip hop. You might have had three four five versus a song. So it's easy to just you can chop it down make more songs that makes sense to me. I think we're things get more complicated. Are when songs are using sort of more traditional verse chorus song form. So if we look at song like he side that's on comes in two minutes and fifty four seconds, which is pretty short pops on and I wanted to look at where's the extra music going? So let's listen to Benny Blanco's east side. And we're gonna listen to just what happens at the end goal. They side.

Cardi B Tapped For Las Vegas Residency
"Who has just signed up for a Las Vegas residency. And this is great news. I think because what we're learning we've been learning for the last year or few years is that the Las Vegas. Residency is not for old dusty accent anymore. And I think this is great news. We have a new Las Vegas residency in its Cardi B. So this to me the reason why okay, sandy just because my brain I've been looking at this all week, and it just dawned on me like how you're saying. Because I my mom just made a comment you like, you know, what happens when they send him to Vegas that. It's not anymore. And that's what I this is exciting to me because for a few reasons among them. First of all, I think that like concerts, the whole concerts have sort of lived in our lifetime has changed so much. I was talking to our social media person here at the radio station Hannah, she's millennial, and we were talking about how she was did, you know, that you used to be like a window at Dayton's where you'd go to get tickets to concerts, and it was like, yeah. Yeah. That's how I want to get tickets. We did you either use your telephone. Yes. And sat on hold for one hundred years or you walked your but to either Dayton's or like there was a window at the rainbow foods in uptown. Yes, there they're always windows at foods, and you would wait in line. And you could get a front row seat by waiting in line. If you were there early enough or you get a ticket. You know, you'd get a number like lottery if you had an early number you could get a front row ticket. And you know, what my husband had a front row ticket to see. The Rolling Stones that he only paid fifty dollars earner and that was expensive at the time soon. I'll think about what a front row seat to a concert would cost in two thousand nineteen fifty dollars. No, you wouldn't even be able to get in the arena for fifty dollars. Eight hundred minimum. That would be like an okay concept. Either of you paid that much money to sit front row in an added concert. Never. I've never sat for dessert. I feel like sonny's cooler than all of us. I'm pretty sure I listen Yami to sit down and have a talk with my daughter. Okay. So we will cool. You are. Honestly, I it's unbelievable how how much it costs to see a concert now. And so when and and when you would go to Las Vegas that would be like the sign that your career was ending. You could no longer fill in arena, and you needed to go there to live out the remainder of your days until you went to glory, and that was the end of debut had some gambling debts too. You had some penguins to buy exist. I mean, it was it was a different world. Yes. It was a different world steady gig. And now, I I think it's a really wise thing to just stay in your small intimate place. It's usually like a nightclub tape gig or smaller theatre type gig in Las Vegas. Have the people come to you. It is a great for whatever venue. You're playing. It is extremely lucrative for them. It's far more affordable for the spectator. What's interesting about some of these residencies that have been announced in the past couple of weeks with really hot acts is that they're not going to be performing in arenas. So they're not going to be at the Coliseum like Celine? Dion. Mariah carey. They're gonna be playing nightclubs. So I think it was last week. It was announced that Drake is doing a nightclub residency at the encore. Yeah. And then Mark Ronson is doing a nightclub residency at the park MGM and Cardi B's residency. That was just an. Ounce yesterday, that's going to be beat the palms hotel. Yeah. So these are all associated with nightclubs, which brings a whole new level of intimacy to their performances, which is awesome. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, I just I think this is really exciting. And I'm hoping we'll see more of this. Because I just I do think, you know, first of all I love Las Vegas. Second of all the idea of being able to go to Las Vegas and see an artist that doesn't really. You think about this? Okay. So sit with me here Sanni like going to Las Vegas is an you can do it pretty inexpensively relatively. I know that there's still a vacation and still, you know, it's not cheap to hop on an airplane. But as far as they go, you can do it relatively inexpensively. And so if you've budgeted for it think about being able to go there and go relatively inexpensively to see more than one artists that you've always wanted to see up and down the strip you do that for the price that you might pay to see one. Ernest in the front row at an arena. And that's kinda cool. Like when I think about being able to

It's really good and shows nothing breaks like a heart. I think it's a really strong single. She's so gorgeous. I already bought it today. You did a dollar twenty nine. Yeah. Miley and Mark Ronson are clearly trying to make a social statement with the video it's very political. It's also got a lot of Easter eggs and nods to her previous videos wrecking ball. What are some of the other little party in the USA in the USA overstuffed oversight stuffed animals from we can't stop the football players taking a knee, which of course, is the NFL protests against police brutality. There's a reference to the king is naked. She's been very politically much very pointed about she does not like President Trump's. So she's got some bad the end of the videos, her lane on top of a car, you know, with their arms crossed out, you know, like like almost sicker crucifixion pose and score jazz.

And I watched it this morning. I thought that is a fun video. And I liked the song. Song is is. Yeah, it's really good. And I don't know why people are calling it a comeback kazaa going to be come back. If you didn't go anywhere. It's number four, and I tunes.

Neighbor are the right below him. The only two in that area on that whole hillside, you're kidding. Every single house has got Julian I know this area radio. It's like the primary part of the hillside. Yeah. Because Casey called them. I said you guy called Greg and see what happened to his old rate is the country market and all that stuff gone. No. That is that did not burn. But all because that was. Yeah. That was that's closer to shares housing, but instead sections, so yeah, he said, he couldn't believe it.
