Things that are cooler than Spotify

Things that are cooler than Spotify

Last Tuesday, Swedish music streaming website Spotify launched in Australia. If you have the internet, that means since Tuesday you have seen 768990,000 updates on Facebook from all your stupid friends, telling you what they have been listening to.

And we're sure that knowing their Spotify listening choices would be public, they certainly would not have specifically chosen the songs that make them appear cooler– or is it just a coincidence that there has been a lot of Beach House and not so much Sixpence None the Richer?

Where were we?

An artist's impression of Spotify.

Spotify is great and all, but we thought we'd keep it real and remind you of some things that are also fun to talk about. Here are some things that are are cooler han Spotify:

Prometheus is coming out soon.
Dudes this movie is going to be EPIC. It too will be all over Facebook but you won't even care, if anything it will just give you an excuse to keep saying "OMG YOU GUYS, LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!". We're pretty sold on this.

Barack Obama showing his support for gay marriage.

Sure it doesn't solve the problem of marriage inequality, but it's a pretty good start.

Jean jackets.
We're putting it out there, jean jackets are awesome. They just... are. If you don't believe us, watch the hip fashion forecasters below:

If you haven't seen HBO's new series Girls yet, you really should. Some people in far off corners of the internet may have you believe that it is a) self indulgent and b) painfully awkward, and it kind of is those things, but in a GREAT way. Girls is every girl you've ever known and loved/hated, and maybe even yourself.

The Exotic Shorthair cat.
WHAT THE WHAT. Spotify will never be able to bring us this much joy.

Azealia Banks is coming to Australia soon.

All you lucky ducks going to Splendour will be able to see Miss Banks in all her ghetto glory, fingers crossed she does that dance (99% chance she will).

"Lazy Sunday 2" with Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell

Stay with us for a second here. Spotify is a great innovation in technology, yada yada yada, but let's think about airplanes for a minute. Like, really think about it. That shit is amazing! Why isn't anyone writing that as their status update?

"Rhythm is a Dancer" by Snap.

Science has shown that it is biologically impossible not to love this song. One time a guy at a party turned it off, and he exploded. True story.

The 1984 instructional break dancing video by The Popalots.

Music streaming sites can't breakdance. Enough said.

I am really undecided about Girls. It's funny and cute and all that, but not THAT funny. And it's a bit predictable. Maybe I'm just too old for it. AM I TOO OLD? Crisis.

Nope. I feel the same. It's better than pretty much everything on Australian TV (Masterchef aside), but there's something about the characters that grinds my gears.

these clips represent the tip of the iceberg that the Titanic (strike) Spotify just hit, there is SOO much more than what we see here! It's a shame, because its a good model that could have whipped iTunes, but hey, they stuffed it full of ads, so yeah. Popalots - thats some pretty fresh sh!t right there!
