Sing me to sleep until the cold is no more.
Immediate problem re: A Year In Music:
  • I want to buy too much music.
  • Oh, and it's fucking cold out so I'm buying from iTunes rather than walking to PrePlayed today.

      Today's albums:
    1. Turquoise and Crimson - VAST
    2. Thought for Food [Flash] - The Books

    Plus: Upgraded my library to entirely DRM free content via new iTunes Plus store promotion (caused by new pricing scheme announced at Macworld) - 30% for the next few days. 137 songs cost less than $20 to upgrade today. Awesome and I need to check the other library at home for the same.

    Lastly, and very importantly:
    Happy Birthday roguebitch!1!!!11!one!

    Are you trying to make me jealous?

    I thought that Ian and I were the only ones that got the dastardly mustaches!

    When the time calls for a dastardly mustache, I provide the dastardly mustache. It is my purpose in life.

    If it helps, you're the only one who complains vehemently about them. That's kind of special. :P

    I think you should spread the Dastardly Gospel to all your friends.

    That icon is so old. That's from when I was living in Verona four years ago.

    I'm also really fat in that icon. You're hiding it with your face though. So, thanks for that!

    my face is fat enough for the both of us?

    I was very confused by this at first as I knew I hadn't made this comment and couldn't figure out why my icon was on it.

    Someone else who likes VAST!!!

    Now I have to go listen to it or I'll have bits of "Winter in my Heart" floating around my head all day.

    I feel like I've asked you this before...

    Where do you stand on intellectual property rights and the distribution of unpaid media?

    Re: I feel like I've asked you this before...

    Can you be more specific? I think people should be rewarded for good ideas but IP rights are murky at best.

    With products like music, I don't understand why I should be limited in my use though I can, sort of, understand limiting my ability to give music to you that I have purchased. I think it makes more sense to limit entire CD redistribution but I'm unsure about it on a song-by-song level mostly because I like mix CDs. If I want to mix up your music with others to create something different, that seems cool. i dunno if I can or should profit from it as I only created the mix, not the songs. Which begs the question of remixing music and who owns what...

    Re: I feel like I've asked you this before...

    But so in the simplest form: downloading music, movies, books, software from the internet: yay or nay?

    I'm glad you saved the best for last. *grins* And thank you! ;-D
