I’ve made several posts over the last few years about how Taylor needs to eventually play a free show in Central Park for as many people as fit in the park.  You do it to end a tour and an entire era….and you do it for charity, like how Garth had fans donate canned foods.
If only Taylor had a song that would be appropriate to open such a show with…..

Do you know anything about sales when a song is released in different times in different time zones? I suppose that the ‘official’ release takes place when the song is released in the US, so does it mean that the sales before the official release are not counted? And then the rankings for the song won’t be so impressive? Or are they, and then this is the strategy that Taylor talked about, because she can get a few thousand of purchases from Europe, and then release the song in the US, and count the European purchases towards the total purchases(e.g. the song was purchased 100,000 times in the first hour after release(*but 50,000 of these purchases took place in the hours before the official release))? If that’s the case, could she have theoretically released the song everywhere but in the US years before the release in the States and report extraordinary sales numbers in the first hour after the release?

I have no idea how any of this works.

If someone does….please reblog and answer.

  • Question: Why are you waiting till it's released in the US. It's on tumblr everywhere. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I promised to not post about leaked things.

    Technically this might not be leaked, as it was released in different timezones….but here in the US that is leaked….at least for a few more hours.

I can’t wait until this track is released here in US….then I can comment on it.

  • Question: WOW Matt! Impressive! First the DP prediction that they would win before noms even came out, and now the Gay Rights thing. If you have inside knowledge on this stuff, just tell us right now. Matt, what's the lottery numbers?? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I sense your sarcasm…..but I’m still pleased with myself.  

    My prediction wasn’t that she’d do a gay rights thing, just that it would be vague and blunt and simple.  

    OK, I guess it wasn’t much of a prediction, but I’m glad its the way it is.

What is the gay supportive bit in her new song? I must know.

I am expecting something vague like:

"You can love who you want."

Anything more direct would probably feel like pandering.

HOLY SHIT I WAS RIGHT!

"Everybody here was someone else before
and you can want who you want
boys and boys
and girls and girls”

  • Question: Do you think Taylor would be upset if she didn't sell 1 million albums in one week or do you think she would be just as happy selling 750k? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    She must be content to go platinum as fast as anyone has recently.

    I think she would be more concerned about critics or neutral-minded fans not liking the sound…..if that is the case.

  • Question: Can u imagine getting hired by Bruce's team? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    nope. Bruce’s team has been set in stone for decades and rumor has it he’s about to take a long break from touring.

  • Question: Cool, good luck! Two questions. What about the Motor City? Tbh, there's nothing really interesting here but hey you'll never know when things can workout for you. And second, are you a traveling enthusiast regardless of work? You must have visited so many places in your life. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Other than a 10-day Europe class trip in HS, I’ve not done any international traveling. I’ve never had much disposable income in my entire life.

    I traveled back and forth from Midwest plains during college, but I’ve never been west of San Antonio.

  • Question: Kansas City is total misery. Do not go. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I disagree. Google Fiber and live jazz is a combination that is hard to beat….you need to remember that I don’t have the same tastes as most other people.

    I went to college in the Midwest and I’m aware of the different pace of life compared to what I’m used to. But I also need to go and prove what I got. This is human instinct that I need to get on the horse. Things need to change immediately. If I become what I am capable of becoming I can belong to the world the way U2 does.

  • Question: So you could actually work at a management company or for an artist? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Anyone that wants me and will pay (it’s not like I’m demanding millions)…..you get to a point where you just want to be appreciated and put yourself in a position to thrive.

  • Question: So you'd consider leaving NY for work? Where else would you consider living state/ country wise? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Ideally, somewhere with many things for someone with my interests to do.

    In no particular order:
    Austin
    Nasvhille
    chicago
    Los Angeles
    SF/Oakland
    Pittsburgh
    New Orleans
    DC
    Kansas City
    Las Vegas

    Those are some places where I could picture it working best.

    But honestly, I’d also go to Canada overseas to any major English speaking city London etc. (or an international capital like Paris or Berlin) if there was gainful employment and affordable living.

  • Question: I have to wait for the entire song first but the snippet didn't excite me much. For now. :( As a New Yorker, what are your thoughts on the new song? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I really love that snippet.  At the root of all good music are memorable riffs and that sounds like a great one.

    Sounds like this is your live show starter.

    FYI, I am not a New Yorker.  I lived there for about five years and still live close enough to visit fairly often (I grew up and live within commuting distance, but it would be a huge, expensive hassle of a daily commute), but I can’t consider myself a New Yorker again until I move back.

    If any employer (anywhere, not just NYC) needs an internet geek that can write, edit and do photoshop, with over 10 years of media experience, contact me.  

    I’m preparing myself to move absolutely anywhere at the drop of a hat because I feel a crushing need to move forward very soon.  

    Get busy livin’.
