Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

I wonder if the original albums hold any or more value or will they eventually go out of print to be replaced by the Taylors Version recordings?

They won't go out of print or be completely replaced. The people that own the original masters will want to continue to make money from them.

Going to Eras concert #2 with my daughter tomorrow night. Have early access VIP tickets. Was gonna blow it off because I didn't want to get there so early, but check this out : this is the crowd OUTSIDE Lincoln Financial. These are people who don't even have tickets! I don't want to face that. Getting home is gonna be a nightmare.

Okay, second show is in the books. Still just an amazing show. Now 3 1/2 hours long. Not sure how I'm gonna get home. We'll figure it out.
I am gonna put up a few of my best pictures here.

Phoebe Bridgers opened for Taylor (and performed a duet of Nothing New, as you can see above), and to my surprise, Taylor's new boyfriend (and The 1975 frontman) Maty Healy played guitar during Phoebe's set.

No. Most phone photos on the Automatic setting didn’t come out well (besides the beginning-of-the-evening shot I posted in the Last Concert You Saw thread) because it was dark, outdoors and with weird lighting. These are “Night” setting shots, longer exposures than can blur. The bottom image was during “Bad Blood”, and I was using the flashes of flames to give better light. I think it’s the least blurry as a result.

when it's bright, I would think you could tap on her, and the camera would adjust the settings as necessary to make her the right brightness and white level. Well lit stadium shows are usually the easiest to take photos at. Most of the shows that I go to are in the dark.

But for your photo, this was the best I could do with adjusting the contrast a bit and trying to boost the colors

Since my next show is Mother's Day, I assume I'm getting The Best Day. I suppose it could be Soon You'll Get Better, but that's kind of too heavy a song to do live.
I was right about the second secret song. Pretty obvious choice. First song was another Fearless track, "Dear Stephen", which was apparently a request from Matty. Not one of my favorites but whatever, it was cute.
Knowing that these songs are unique and what makes each show special, and because her piano was right in front of me, I felt it was my duty to the Swifties to record her whole "Surprise" piano song (including intro) and upload it to YouTube. It's over 7,000 views since 2AM. Here it is.

I heard Karma on XM and she replaces G Dam Acrobat with a Vegas acrobat in the lyrics for the clean version?

I know a cult when I see one.

Jokes aside, I wonder what it feels like to be this popular. Can't relate.

Woman mysteriously receives 6 VIP Taylor Swift tickets and doesn’t know where they came from. She’s choosing to be honest and trying to return it to rightful owner. I’m confused though. Who was the package addressed to?

FWIW those are the VIP boxes. No real ticket to get into the show there, just a few collectables.

Keith Urban accidentally confirmed Phoebe Bridgers' relationship with Bo Burnham while attending my show in Philadelphia.

Aw, man. Taylor's people pulled my concert video. It had over 25K views and some nice comments. I've never had a concert video pulled before, I thought they only did that if you were monetizing it.

I've only had a small handful of my videos on youtube get blocked. One of them, YouTube gave the contact email for the band, and I wrote an email requesting that they unblock it and they did. I only went through the trouble since it was entered as a copyright strike, with the threat that YouTube could delete my account if I got another one. Considering I have hundreds of concert videos on my Youtube along with a bunch of old family videos, I thought I'd ask. For another, the video became private but I can still watch it.

Would having over 25,000 views be considered a video that went viral and could be approaching a number of views where you would start to get paid due to the content you uploaded? I wonder if you could do what PerryD did and perhaps allow them to have you make the video private so you could still watch.

I click on a lot of homemade concert videos of folks who attended rock festivals, etc., but I will now need to double check how many views they received because Youtube has clearly not taken down many videos I see uploaded to Youtube from phone recordings.

Of course, as much as I recognize these groups because I like listening to Sirius XM Octane channel, most folks would have no clue that a band exists called Spriritbox, but everyone and their mother is aware of Taylor Swift so it was pretty much inevitable that you would run afoul of Swift's people who reached out to you.

Oh boy, looks like Taylor's new boyfriend is a bigoted shithead and she had to do some damage control as well...

Re: Taylor Swift -- Discussion Thread

For someone who so tightly controls her image and career, it's strange that she's dating some absolute creep who publicly admits to jerking off to shit like "Ghetto Gaggers" and spouts racist crap on podcasts.

Seems like something that could make people start questioning her schtick of being the poor little girl who is always having her heart broken. Now it's starting to look like she's just dropping her panties for assholes.
