Things That Make You Happy

Recommended Posts

Jeezus H. Gut-Blowing Christ!

If you'll recall, many years ago a class-action lawsuit was launched against Spotify for streaming songs without permission of the artists who own the songs. That lawsuit was settled a year or so ago. I'm part of the settlement, for Grabbag. I've been getting a bunch of legal minutiae that I've had to keep up with, to the point where I was beginning to expect a check of eleven dollars or something similarly puny. Well, I got my check today.

$711.92!!!

It nearly knocked the wind out of me. Good lord, how many streams did they have to account for in order to come up with such a sum for one song??? I'm still staggered. This is going to help pay off a huge medical bill from my last toe amputation.

That's good news!

You said a mouthful. My son's a Spotify user, so he got on and looked things up. Couldn't find my original version of the song, but he found a metric assload of cover versions. That must have had something to do with it.

He also Googled the dates of the lawsuit. It was filed in 2012, settled in 2017, and the payout worked out in 2019. Eight years it took for me to see money from something I originally had no hope for when I signed up.

Civil court cases seem to take forever to run.

I am glad to see that the forum is back online. Who else has been contacted to let them know?

I've posted that it's back online in the EGS Discord server and in the EGS Facebook group.

Do you think anyone has PMed The Old Hack?

The Hack was among my targets

If anyone has other means of communication, please use them

I asked Thoth to write a general announcement where any interested party might read it, only to later remember that most EGS fans are not particularly literate in Hieroglyphics

This year's running of the Indianapolis 500, the 105th installment of said race, made me very happy. It was one hell of a race, and it saw a new inductee into the four-time winner club: Helio Castroneves of Sao Paolo, Brazil. He joins A.J. Foyt, Al Unser, and Rick Mears in that exclusive club.

This year's race was also a record smasher. Check out the big number of records broken or tied.

The FXM network showed the original M*A*S*H movie yesterday, uncut and uncensored, in the middle of the day. I don't know what came over them to do that, but bravo to them.

I've lost 10 pounds since I got my scale.  Was 207, now 197.  Still need to lose 15-20 pounds or so.

I got my new debit card.  Not going to transfer funds from that account to the credit union account because by the time I got there they would be closed.  Plus heat.  On my list of things to do in the morning.
