back to article Snoop Dogg swerves Glasto, plays Pure Storage gig #keepitreal

    data conference?

    Wouldn't it take as little as an excel spreadsheet (no AI needed) to figure out the mean age of the attendees and approximate age they were "rocking" and perhaps get an aging 80s one hit wonder.

    Fuck Da anit-bribery laws?

    Public Enemy for PriceWatreHouseCooper?

    Pure trying so hard to be cool...

    It is indeed a bit embarrasing - for Snoop Dogg.

    I heard NetApp will have Vanilla Ice. A much better match.

    A one hit wonder - who got succesful with a stolen beat.

    Why do such things even exist?

    American "culture" married to "marketing".

    I thought the government is there to protect us?
