“Nobody wants to say this stuff out loud because we all love Google. I’m saying all this and I’m a Google fanboy. I’ve been to their campus. It’s like what you thought college would be like in high school before you encountered reality, but … all of this is true, and it sucks. Because Google is an awesome company that makes awesome stuff. They don’t need to resort to this sort of thing, especially when the platform is so universally hated by people who aren’t out to make a buck on it.”
Here, the music comes last. 5 minute set-up, no sound check, 15 minute set. The “music” element is all a front, it’s the first thing to be compromised. Corporate money everywhere but in the hands of the artists, at what is really just a glorified corporate networking party. Drunk corporate goons and other industry vampires and cocaine. Everyone is drunk, being cool. “Official” bureaucracy and all their mindless rules. Branding, branding, branding. It’s bullshit… sorry.
