I love reading about Jack Thompson getting shot down. This time around, his Alabama license was revoked. He had some harsh words for the judge that did so, and naturally he had a response.
Also, a 2004 study at Harvard showed that fileswapping's overall impact on record sales is "statistically indistinguishable from zero." However, it has been shown to increase sales for obscure bands.
More to the point, the recording industry's efforts to curb fileswapping are beginning to have a negative impact on sales.
For my part, this can be summed up easily by saying, "Fuck you, RIAA. FUCK YOU"
There was a bit of a self-reflective thing I was going to write but for the moment I'm thinking better of it. I think I'm going to sit on it until it stops seeming like something that Dashboard Confessionals would write a song about.
Once again a reminder that Pandora is totally awesome and you should check it out.
Today I discovered that I like Alice in Chains, Machinehead, and Scorpions.
