thats a pretty good response.. seriously.... you got me.. im stumped..last man on earth wrote:This has got to be one of the lamest topics I've ever read.
I wrote a bunch of stuff here, but it's lost on someone as close-minded as the op, so I'm not going to waste the time or text on it, but one thing's for sure, I'd never buy a cd, record, t-shirt, or mp3 from him, strictly out of disrespect for the principles stated in the first post, and I wouldn't even steal one of your mp3's to pass on to friends either.
I'm happy to buy cd's from bands that I like, and granted, none of them are locals, but I support the artists that I love.
If you've got something against local bands, op, then don't go to their shows.
Or be in their bands.
In fact, you should get shitfaced and heckle them early on so that the bouncers toss you out immediately, making the live musical experience that much better for everyone else who wants to be there.
maybe tomorrow i will think of something that will really get your goat.
but you win.
i still think music should be free though
it should be free in the format of mp3 and badly produced mp3..
i had to edit that.
