    Best Music Of 2012By Lukas Clark-Memler

    Looks like the Mayans were wrong. And thank God (or Quetzalcoatl) for that. Of course, the Mayan doomsday prophecy was gratuitously misinterpreted by the Western world and looking back, it’s embarrassing how easily we got swept up in it all. With that said, 2012 was indeed an eventful year…

    Is Bono The UK’s Richest Rock Star?

    By Myles Crawley

    Last year we published an article that listed the UK’s Richest Rock Stars. With recent IPO events unfolding, we thought it might be a good idea to take another look at that list. At the time of our original publishing, Sir Paul McCartney was at the top with approximately $750 million in personal wealth. With a quarter of a billion dollar lead over his closest rival Sir Elton John, it seemed like it was going to be quite some time before anyone unseated the great Macca. Indeed, even Mick Jagger and Keith Richards (#3 & #4 consecutively) didn’t stand much of a chance since there was a half billion dollar gap between the Beatle and the Stones.

    Paul McCartney To Re-Release RAM

    “Ladies and gentlemen, this is an album from a long, long time ago, when the world was different.  This is an album that is part of my history – it goes back to the wee hills of Scotland where it was formed.  It’s an album called RAM. It reminds me of my hippie days and the free attitude with which was created.  I hope you’re going to like it, because I do!”

    Project Rhythm Seed’s Best Of 2011

    By Lukas Clark-Memler

    Introduction
    Another year has ended; another list has been compiled. Often I get this feeling that in 100 years, all that will remain of today’s pop culture will be a number of well-thought-out lists. While many critics are driven to paroxysms at the thought of another year-end list, the fact is that they are essential to annual retrospective analysis. There is a feeling of security and consistency in ‘Best Of’ lists; inasmuch as one can feel safe in the presence of a numerically-ordered selection of things. But in truth, the rapid acceleration of technology and the advent of social media has completely changed the way humans organize their internal thoughts. We no longer think in prose, or even full sentences; we think in lists.
