DAY 1 - THREAD 3
1. INTERNETS BUSIEST MUSIC REVIEWER UPLOADS REVIEW OF NEW BLUR ALBUM
2. TURNS OUT HE REVIEWED THE FAKE LEAK THAT WAS UPLOADED IN MARCH ON /MU/
3. NOT ONLY DOES HE ILLEGALLY PIRATE HIS REVIEWS BUT HE'S NOT "BUSY" ENOUGH OF A MUSIC REVIEWER TO EVEN TELL IT WAS A FAKE
4. MASS REPORTING TO IRAA. FANTANO IN DAMAGE CONTROL ON /MU/.
5. FANTANO SUPPOSEDLY ON THE LAM.
>implying /moo/ wasn't already at the bottom
He was a pretty good reviewer though I wouldn't say "moral". He gave a lot of points to why he didn't like the album he listened to and h didn't seem like that bad guy.
It's kind of weird how this site sets up cults of personalities around people only to take them down pretty hard over a minor flaw. Same thing with Gabe Newell over on /v/
The best part about this is the vindication that comes from him exposing how little he listens to these albums he reviews and how little he knows about the artists.
He literally listened to some Albarn and Gorillaz demos and didn't stop for a second to wonder if maybe, just maybe, this wasn't the new Blur album.
>exposing how little he listens to these albums he reviews and how little he knows about the artists.
I'll bet he just reads a few reviews, rewords with a few meme-catchphrases and that's how he makes a vid.
His music talk is so vague and full of repeating buzzwords that you could almost apply them any album and get away with it.
This is all a conspiracy devised by a secret contract conducted between fantano and blur to hype both of them. RIAA got caught in the crossfire for their own lulz. It's a win win, sorta win. srsly you guys are dumb.
I don't really understand why anyone gives a fuck about others opinions on music.
I like fantano, but not because I think he's a good reviewer or anything, I don't even watch his reviews usually, not sure why people don't just listen to music.
he thinks this is a 5/5 album
whether you like it or not, marcel is a critic. a critic who reviews albums and loves talking about music.
he is also frequently discussed here on /mu/, so that makes him a /mu/ critic by default.
This is actually good for /mu/ they can finally see how little he actually knows about music. If you watch multiple reviews of his, all he does is look up background info about the band on Wikipedia, talk about 2 tracks, look up words in a thesaurus, ramble on for about 5 minutes and boom you got a whole video.
>mfw he gave every AnCo release and ITAOTS a 0.5
Must be a cool guy
This, to some extent. I wouldn't call him one of the greatest, or most moral reviewers out there, but he had his own voice and could articulate it well. As for his morality, I don't know or care about that.
I don't think it's worth trying to get him into legal trouble for pirating music, when it's safe to assume over half of /mu/ does the same thing.
YFW Anthony Fantano actually destroys his career
well he has posted loads of images on instagram of him getting early copies of albums before. last one he posted abotu was the new GYBE album
there is no mirror, it was deleted immediately after it was uploaded and no one downloaded it
Is fl good for playing live? edition

>This pretty much confirms that this place is filled with teenagers.
how new are you? there have been countless incidents that confirmed that this place is filled with underaged people since its inception
>intent to pirate
Even if the tracks he downloaded were blur tracks, do you really think he's going to go to jail? All he has to do is wipe his hard drive. He probably even uses a proxy or vpn for torrenting. C'mon, you guys are childish.
>do you really think he's going to go to jail?
no but he will not be able to review albums from now on
>He probably even uses a proxy or vpn for torrenting
doesnt matter. he reviewed an album that was only on /mu/'s archive. its confirmed he illgeally downlaoded it
every single one of you fuckers are guilty of this, what makes you think fantano was any different.
Nowadays if someone tells me they don't pirate music I literally laugh in their face, who the fuck is paying for downloads.
he tried to start a new thread but ended up accidentally posting it in this one. its tradition to point and laugh and say "you dun fucked up" everytime that sort of thing happens
Reminder Blackdingo is a le right generation rapfag.
It's not even confirmed at all, you dipshit. Do you know how a trial works? You have to provide evidence that shows that Fantano is undeniably guilty. And this is one small piece of evidence that doesn't mean shit. All he has to do is say it was a joke review and that someone else showed the album to him. Any lawyer worth half a grain of salt can get him off this charge.
Also, he can still review albums, he just has to buy them. Or, even keep torrenting, because guess what? No one's going to do shit about this melon. Fuck, you guys are so stupid.
It was kinda funny that he reviewed a fake album, but now you guys are actually trying to ruin his life over some fake guise of morality.
Seriously this kind of shit is supposed to stay in /b/.
1. riaa send youtube messages ordering them to not pay fantano money for his videos
2. all his sponsors get messaged by riaa telling them the same thing
3. he can still make reviews and have subscribers and views but it will be pointless because he's not getting paid for it anymore
THIS IS OUR CHANCE FOR REVENGE
Anyone who says he's in legal trouble is trolling or stupid. But this is going to tarnish some of his credibility as a critic. But overall it doesn't matter. People will still watch his videos and he'll keep making money.
The HUGE difference is that he profits (over $100k a year apparently) from the use of the pirated music in his youtube business.
you might be on to something, I actually listened to the new Blur album on Spotify today when I had no intention to otherwise
it's this guy right??
>I have a monetized YouTube account where I regularly upload videos of me shitting in people's hamburgers
>I am a professional burger shitter
>he heard some songs that sound like Blur songs and thought they were Blur
>lmao what a retard
You guys are fucking cancer is /mu/ really this bad now? Fuck this shitty place, especially if >>55545039 is a serious post. I mean DGD? Ffs they are awful as fuck and didn't deserve a review at all.
He abandoned his /mu/ roots long ago anyways, his fans come from mostly reddit and tumblr now. Now he's realized he fucked up, and he is nothing but a slimy thief.
It's just like all his other reviews except he listened to the wrong album, it isn't like some kind of super video or some shit he reviews the songs he listened too, but they aren't the songs on the album.
Who is this goddamn faggot anyway? He keeps cropping up in my Recommended list on youtube even though I never watch music reviews. He looks like a massive tool.
$100,000 is better than "a living", like I said show proof of this shit, because I don't believe you. Maybe like $60-70k I could see, but I think you're just maaking shit up and being a faggot
>. Get the fuck out you autistic shithead
this is the biggest problem. not that he pirates, but the fact that his knowledge of the artists he reviews has lost all credibility since he could not identify somewhat popular blur/gorillaz b-sides
I have the MP4 of the review. Three bitcoins aggregate donation and it goes on liveleak.
I'll give you 20 bitcoins. Anything to see that shitheap Fagthony Nigtano go down. I mean seriously a 1? A 1?!?! FUCK YOU FANTANO DANCE GAVIN DANCE IS THE BEST BAND THAT HAS EVER FUCKING GRACED MY EARS. DND ARE SO FAR ABOVE YOU FANTANO YOU FUCKER I CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU BURN
post yfw nothing happens to Anthony after all this fuss
*gives 50 bitcoins*
*teleports behind Fantano*
"The reckoning of thy fate cometh. Thy souls will burn in eternal hellfire for thine crimes"
*cuts Fantano into a million different pieces with one slash*
HES REUPLOADING NOW
$4,000,000 a year from youtube views
At 3,000,000 views a month, Fantano is on very decent money
You can often get $3 - $5 per 1000 views
>you can make up to $4,000,000 a year by acting like an autist in front of a webcam
The best way to work it out is the going rate for 1000 views. A network on average will pay you between $2 to $5 per 1000.......average say $3 per 1000.
Fantano at 3mill views a month would be on
3000000/1000 x 3
= $9,000 per month
Around $110,000 a year.............plus all the other shit he charges for
>reminder that I will never be accessible to be entertaining to millions of children
>reminder that modern society values entertainers more than teachers and civil servants
thanks, I needed that
>/mu/ two years ago: I pirate everything! Fuck the RIAA!
>/mu/ now: Let's report this melon for doing what we all do
this is the degradation of online privacy happening in the place where privacy is upheld the most
This is exactly what the government wants
We're all fucked
They don't at all. The average person may give an entertainer $10 for a few hundred hours of entertainment on average. People that attend private schools/unis certainly pay a LOT more than that to their teacher for a few hundred hours of education. Just so happens the internet allows one person to reach millions extremely easily. That doesn't mean people value them more obviously.
is antwon fandango's career over? I sure fucking hope not.
I don't pirate music, but I used to, so I'm not comfortable criticizing Alimony Fandom for that alone. However, I will absolute criticize him for profiting over pirated music. That's just rudethony dudetano.
>not knowing fantano is a dirty pirate
