Kanye, Champion Of Paid Streaming Music, Got Caught Trying To Torrent Software
Kanye has tried repeatedly and often to made artist-friendly streaming service Tidal happen. The premise is that Tidal is a “fair” way to stream music, an artist-friendly experience that gives back money to the creators. Which is great, but it appears Kanye can’t be bothered to pay $200 for music software.
A tweet earlier in the day from Kanye showed a photo of his music listening habits (Sufjan Stevens, in case you’re wondering). Unfortunately (for him), that same picture showed a few of his open tabs, including a Pirate Bay search for Serum. That’s a software synthesiser plugin which currently sells for $US189.00 ($264).
These Ancient ‘Hand Prints’ Were Not Made By Human Hands
The Wadi Sura cave in the Libyan Desert features a number of stencil paintings dating back to between 6000 and 8000 years ago, including over a dozen tiny human-like hand prints. Since its discovery, the hands were thought to belong to human babies, but an anthropologist now says they’re not human at all.
Sorry folks, it’s not aliens. It turns out, the iconic stencils were made using the forefeet of reptiles. Such is the conclusion of a new study published in the Journal of Archaeological Science, led by Emmanuelle Honore from the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research in the UK.
North Korea Celebrates New Cold War With Commemorative Stamps
There’s no greater celebration of your country’s majesty than putting its achievements on a postage stamp. Throughout the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union both loved to put their space accomplishments on stamps. But with our New Cold War™, it’s North Korea’s turn.
Yes, the Democratic [sic] People’s Republic of Korea has issued stamps to celebrate its recent launch of a satellite into space. As you can see from the images above, one of the stamps celebrates the true hero behind the satellite launch: Kim Jong-un. The first sheet features the satellite, along with the rocket that put it there.
