A Brilliant Lie - Promo1. Listen To Everyone.

Look – criticism can be tough to swallow. But remember, there might actually be constructive ideas in comments that people make about your band. Whether it is about your songwriting, social media presence, flyer designs, or gear tones – there is always something to improve upon.  Always.

Is everyone blowing smoke up your butt and you never get criticism? Fine – ask people you respect in the industry for feedback. Assuming that you are amazeballs and that everyone else “just doesn’t get it” is a little lopsided and unrealistic. Unless you’re Prince, or something. Then by all means, do whatever the hell you want.

Tom DeLonge Leaves Blink-182…No…Wait…Yes… (UPDATED)

So if you are a music lover or in the music industry, the last 48 hours have been really confusing. First you wake up hearing lead guitarist and co-lead singer of Blink-182, Tom DeLonge, has left the band indefinitely or that he quit outright. A few hours later it’s now a joke? His bandmates didn’t discuss it with him? Journalists messed up really badly? The point is, we have no idea what is happening.

After the jump you can find most of the articles (the lines that pertain) and a few ideas that fans have about what may be going on. Feel free to write your thoughts on this very bizarre day in the comment section bellow. We look forward to hearing from you!

UPDATE #1: Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker did an impromptu interview with Rolling Stone about an hour ago. Read it here and become even more confused.

UPDATE #2: No confirmation yet, but this tweet, supposedly deleted, from DeLonge has been circling for the past few hours.

UPDATE #3: According to The Examiner, DeLonge has not officially quit, no word from his party to the truth of this.

UPDATE #4: Alternative Press does exclusive interview with Hoppus.

UPDATE #5: Delonge does an almost off record post on his Facebook 35 minutes ago. Still hasn’t officially said he’s done.

Update #6: Hoppus does interview with Billboard where he denies that Barker was ever going to quit.

Update #7: Whether Delonge has quit or not, Blink 182 are moving forward with Matt Skiba in place of Delonge, at least for now. Hoppus instagramed a picture of rehearsal with Skiba’s gear.

Infectious Magazine does not claim to know any information other than what has already been stated.

Taylor Swift Trademarks Several Lyrics

Taylor-Swift-1989-300x300Trademark all the things! That seems to be what Taylor Swift is thinking, as the singer put trademarks on several phrases. Each is noted for being mentioned in her song lyrics from her latest album 1989.

So what terms did Taylor take? Choices include “This Sick Beat,” “Party Like It’s 1989,” “Cause We Never Go Out of Style,” “Could Show You Incredible Things” and “Nice to Meet You, Where You Been?” and more.

So what do you think of the situation? If you could trademark any phrase as your own, what would it be? For more of Taylor Swift’s music, you can buy concert tickets or purchase a CD here.
