Am I the only person in the world that does not listen to music?

No, you are not. The legions of rap devotees also qualify as non-music-listeners.

My Dad doesn't listen to music either. Honestly,I think it's weird and terrible for the soul if you don't listen to music.

Will Tom Wheeler be using all these streaming services from the internet fast lane? I know most of us here won't. Thanks Tom Wheeler you shill.

The joke is that Spotify claims they'll start paying artists more per stream when they hit 40 million subscribers. Great software for consumers, horrible for artists.

Agreed. You can't beat $9.99/mo for unlimited access to over 20 million songs in 320kbps Ogg Vorbis, which is superior to mp3 at the same bit rate, but it is unfortunate how poorly artists are compensated on Spotify. That's why when a new album I like is released on Spotify I do my best to stream it at least once a day in full.

Except Google is Buying Twitch, so if you do it on Justin/Twitch you will now have your account banned per YouTube/Google music rules!
