I read that headline five times and it just seemed like retarded ****ing nonsense.
After reading the article I pieced together what the headline is supposed to mean, but still some terrible, terrible writing.

an esports organization

basically the dude plays video games for a living

kinda has a cool story though, parents kicked him outta the house for being a lazy bum and sitting behind a screen all day and he ended up turning that into a career. he’s been in the LCS (pro league) longer than any other active player.

I poop myself a little whenever Spotify makes the news. It’s finally trading public and is getting valued at $25 B

I thought it would have turned to **** long before now but it’s held steady as a really good resource for a long time. I hope they don’t **** it up

**** it up by doing something like idk maybe contributing to the downfall of actually paying musicians for physical copies of their music and paying anyone who isn’t a top 100 billboard artists an insultingly low amount of money for their entire catalog of music

im a spotify user too tho so idgaf

Huh? Spotify doesn't pay anyone to host their music, they only pay for streams.

Streaming is convenient as **** so I encourage everyone to do that. I also encourage everyone not to be ****ty fans who swap buying physical music/merch/tickets for streaming.
