Some Cruel Truths About Rock n’ Roll: What Can We Learn from Them?

Some Cruel Truths About Rock n’ Roll: What Can We Learn from Them?

Last week, a story about The Runaways’ Jackie Fuchs, centered around her account of being raped by the late music entrepreneur Kim Fowley in a motel room full of people on New Year’s Eve in 1975, challenged the very idea that rock and roll is something worth loving. Fuchs’ account hit the music world like a bomb that obliterated all taste of cherry from our mouths, demanding the acknowledgment of certain painful facts from anyone who loves 1970s pop culture, that groundbreaking all-female band in particular, or the romantic notion that music celebrating and enacting sexual openness is a force for freedom and empowerment.

AT&T Hit with $100mn Fine After Slowing Down ‘Unlimited’ Data

AT&T hit with $100mn fine after slowing down ‘unlimited’ data The Federal Communications Commission hit telecommunications giant AT&T with a $100 million fine, the largest it has ever levied, for slowing down the internet speeds of customers with “unlimited” data plans. The company said it will fight the fine. Thousands of AT&T customers complained to the FCC about the issue, saying they noticed that when they had used up a certain amount of data watching movies or browsing the web, AT&T “throttled” their internet speeds so that they were much slower than normal. Millions of AT&T customers were affected by the practice. In a press release announcing the fine, the FCC said the company “severely slowed down the data speeds for customers with unlimited data plans” and “failed to adequately notify its customers that they could receive speeds slower than the normal network speeds AT&T advertised.”

Illuminate Film Fest: “Landfill Harmonic” Proves the Creative Human Spirit Can Always Triumph

Landfill Harmonic is a heartfelt, moving documentary that shows how the human spirit triumphs in even most trying living conditions. The movie takes place in Cateura, a poor suburb of Paraguay, where most families make their living working in the local dump. It’s their job to pick through the tons of garbage that comes from nearby cities. Located in a huge flood zone, Cateura is an extremely challenging place to live, and the kids who grow up there rarely dare to dream of a bigger life. Landfill Harmonic tells the story of how one man, Favio Chavez, changed everything for the people of Cateura when he decided to teach the children how to play music. There was only one problem: there were lots of children who wanted to learn and only a few instruments. This is understandable since most violins are worth more than one of the shack-homes in Cateura.
