Yeah dash you are right the artist gets nothing except money from the record company. Also, instead of hearing a 30 second clip you could get a full length near cd quality mp3. Just my opinion.

thank god for filesharing....remember back in the day when you'd hear their single on the radio, buy the cd and then everything BUT their single sucked? Yeah well that used to happen to me all the time.

Now I just use the fact that I dislike the RIAA and that the artist makes no money to rationalize my theft, but so do the rest of you. But hopefully, stealing from them will actually put them out of business.

Anyway, THIS disearves a bump

and cold sunn: hit me up on aim sometime (Imperial TPF) we seem to have a lot in common

That article was a good read, but I disagree with him a little. He talks about economy, how we should spend less instead of more, like the only reason to spend more is your morals. But, he says the RIAA should make less, like it's their moral obligation. Not that those fuckers deserve any more money, I'm just saying. I think 1.40 is too low, but the price of CDs is too high. I know the artist gets very little of my cash when I buy their CD, but like someone said: at least it keeps em making music.

I do still buy CDs, but I also think the RIAA takes it in the ass. How about someone makes a program to save a save a short mp3 of someone saying "Fuck the RIAA" over and over again, as Fuck the RIAA0001.mp3? Let's say, 4000 times. Then, we put them in our shared directory and turn sharing on. Maybe it will attract their attention and piss them off and we'll all be sued....nevermind.

It costs pennies to make a CD, less than a cassette, actually. 18 dollars is fucking highway robbery.

i have bought one cd in the last year, and it was used. i discovered that windowsmedia.com allows you to listen to full length songs of most artists for free, and legally. though some of the links don't work, and some of the sound quality is below par, it is still a simple and fast way to sample music. and i must agree with dash and ghost that mini discs are quite cool. i recently bought a mini disc cd burner, worth my money.

hmm, BS, I think you are referring to those tiny CD-R's? I believe Ghost and I were referencing the MiniDisc format. Check out http://www.minidisc.org or http://www.minidisct.com. As for CS, are you really determined to piss me off? Well, congratulations, you did! Listen bish, if the artist is dead do you think the record comapny sends the money to the family or something? I don't think so. If the group is disbanded, where does the money go from CD sales then, smart ass? Oh boy, I can spend 20 minutes downloading a CD and get near CD quality! What a waste of time! Listening to samples is much easier/faster. As BS said, when on a broadband connection, just go to a place like windowsmedia or launchcast and listen to the whole song.

calm down dashocker. Cold Sunn is one of the few respectable people at this site who never seems to flame anybody. First he said you were right, then he made a comment on his slightly differing opinion. What is there to be pissed off about? Don't answer that question, it was rhetorical.

*looks around and sees himself in the spotlight*

oh, um... yeah. May Alah seek veangance on the evil RIAA for our suffering. Praise Alah for CD-R's and um... Death to infidels.

I realize that SR, however it seemed liked sarcasm to me. Maybe I'm wrong, and if I am, I apologize for being an asshole.

/me will laugh when perg drops his 15 gig iPod and the hd explodes in his face...

hah, my iPod survived 10 minutes in the washing machine. My dad threw my shorts in (I've done my laundry since I was 11, and this is why) and didn't check the pockets. I looked for my shorts, he said he was doin laundry, and I ran over to the washing machine, pulled out my iPod. Wiped it off... turned it on, and it was workin fine. The only thing is that the decals on the back came off, and the foam that goes on the ear buds got ruined.

i still buy cds... mostly cuz if i really like an artist i'll pay for their music. but if i only like a few songs, i'm not gonna buy the whole album. or if a new album comes out, i download it first. don't want to waste the money on something shitty. i listen to it, if it's good i'll buy it. if it sucks ass i delete it. if it's moderate... i still won't buy it. i'm a cheap ass
