Twitter Thread: How Taylor Swift Cut Out Her Predatory Label

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music or not, it's interesting to learn about the long, long history of musicians signing horrible deals early in their careers and getting completely shafted later on when it comes to the rights of their own music. It's crazy to think that there are recording artists today don't own their own music, like we're still living in some old-timey Motown story of forgotten legends and cartoonishly evil businessmen. @ThatsMauvelous details the weird legal stunts Swift had to pull to get the rights to her music back from her old label.

Kid Destroys Guitar, Dad Asks Babysitter To Replace It

This dad has some kind of nerve. If you're going to go through the process of hiring someone to look after your kid, you very well might have to grow comfortable with the possibility of accidents occurring while you're away. It's the additional price you can end up paying outside of the babysitter fee. With that being said, this dad somehow expected the hard working babysitter to cover the cost of a guitar that was broken by his kid while he was away.

Just imagine for a terrible, daunting second that the internet wasn't a thing, and thus people would never have been able to discover this gem embedded in the heart of humanity. Seriously, what a situation we have going on here.

There's a reason that he's Elton John. We could say we're surprised at how this challenge turned out, but again, it's Elton John that we're talking about.

This dude's got mad skills. He had the courage and the talent to be able to pull off singing an entire song from "Beauty and the Beast" by himself. The audience must've been equal parts mystified and pleasantly overwhelmed by the spectacle.

You just never know if you're going to end up moving in next to an absolutely awesome human being, or end up living next to a waking nightmare. It's all a gamble. With that being said, this guy's low-key neighbor hero is crushing it with his accordion skills. A true treat for the ears.

And here we have yet another reason to love Dave Grohl. It's a beautiful thing to see him step aside and let his daughter be the center of attention. With that being said, she also absolutely crushes her cover of Adele's "When We Were Young."

Anyone out there who can't find a bassist but also has a few extra hands could definitely benefit from this glorious musical monstrosity. And what an uncomfortably wide fretboard. Word has it that to find a fret board for a musical instrument like this they had to repurpose yo momma's surfboard. 

Okay, yeah it also sounds cool.

Did you wake up today thinking that what you were lacking in your world was being able to see a couple adorable, radical looking birds play some heavy metal? No, no you probably didn't. But alas, here we are. The internet doing what it does best: creating humorous chaos from nothing. We're ready for the album at this point.

This is definitely more than the pure talent that this kid's clearly radiating. You can tell the dude also put in countless hours of hard work. That's really how you can ultimately take talent places. You've got to put in the work first. With that being said, what a performance. Floored!

Who are we to draw assumptions about whether or not walruses thoroughly enjoy music or not? Because clearly, by the looks of this video, walruses absolutely love their tunes.

It's videos like this that can instantaneously restore your potential dwindling faith in humanity. Look at doggo in there; he's having the best time of his life. We don't blame him. This is nothing short of a viral-worthy performance.
