I was going to start a “streaming music” thread but since this exists, I have an urgent question.
Spotify: For the fucking love a’ god, why doesn’t my Discovery Weekly playlist update? It’s been the same for two months.
Discovery Weekly is supposed to automatically update every Monday with stuff that appeals to you. I’ve contacted them through Twitter, but they aren’t being super helpful. Gonna get into it more tomorrow.Is that a playlist you curate with different podcasts, or a single podcast (and episodes)?
If it's the latter, is it an open subscription? i.e., can you sub in the Apple podcast app just to confirm operation?
I love podcasts, I listen to quite a few, a few on film/TV, some show specific, a few general interview, several tech/science, pop culture, some political/news.
I don’t get this at all. If you want to be mad at a composer for their beliefs, start with Wagner and you can have enough to complain about for a lifetime. Beethoven’s 5th has surpassed whatever expectations anybody could have for a piece of music, and thanks to modern technology, you don’t need a massive orchestra every time you want to hear it. You just need a pair of headphones and a cell phone.Twitter went a little nuts today for awhile over some tweet that Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is an exemplar of elitist, exclusive, classist music. I decided not to explore at that particular time why the New York Philharmonic apparently was engaged in this conversation (or a podcast that was the basis of the conversation). I may look that up later when I'm more in the mood for such a discussion. However, I decided that I felt badly for ol' Ludwig, who is not around to defend his composition, and so I have been listening to assorted performances of that symphony tonight. I don't really care if it's elitist. It's ripping good music.
