"The User-Interface sucks compared to everything," he said when asked how it was compared to Spotify. "Beat One was promising for about a day but now it's just ghetto."
I've had a similar experience. Apple Music is not the way to go when driving friends around in your car. I search for songs they request and the entire app crashes when I finally click on them. I have an iPhone 6 and Jon has a 6s Plus so it's not like we're using outdated devices.
Spotify just gained 3 users back.

My brother and I went to visit Centralia, PA today. Centralia has a special place in video gamer’s heart for a very specific reason. Why? Because it is the inspiration for the game Silent Hill. In fact, when I “checked-in” on facebook it was described Centralia as “Silent Hill-Centralia.” It was a cool experience. More on that in another blog, another venue.
What wasn’t cool was the vast amount of trash in the area and surrounding the coal mines for miles and miles. As we navigated towards rocks that were steaming from an underground fire in the middle of the woods we had to step over and through trash. Stuff like that might be expected from an abandoned town whose inhabitants fled because the ground would occasionally open up and eat them whole right? But what about everywhere else?
I’m the type of person who would throw trash in my car before ever throwing trash out the window. I lose ALL respect for people who decide to shit on their surroundings by chucking their refuse out of their car. If you’re that type of person, stop. If not, maybe pitch-in to help clean a block or two. It’s not Trump who’ll make our country great again, it’s those willing to pick up their own God damn trash.

Everyone needs goals.
So what are mine?
-Write a blog or an article of some form every day that I can publish in some venue even if just on my own personal blog.
2. Video essay production
-Learn how to make effective video essays on subjects I am interested in.
-1 push-up a day. This is a much more reasonable goal than going to the gym.
-Don't eat shit food. Be able to fast for 2-10 days without losing productivity. Think Stoicism. No matter what happens, I can make it. Be able to fast without metabolizing muscle.
-This needs to happen. I need to keep track of my money. If for no other reason I need to do this for 80/20 analysis of my endeavors once they become popular.
6. Take time to re-learn things I believe I'm competent at. This goes doubly for writing.
That's it. Those are my resolutions. What are yours?
