my bank balance tells me to carry on downloading..

i have 14+ gig of music, and the majority is downloaded..

imagine how much taht would cost to buy...

10 - 20 for a CD that costs a few pence to actually make.. no thanks..


though there are a few that i will buy, like the new(ish) tool one, just cause the artwork/stuff inside was just so cool.. but it honestly doenst bother me to download songs..

bitlord/bittorrent FTW!!

Yeah, if I actually bought all the CD's in my music collection...

Well some are bought, but now that I don't have a job and my parents are gradually forcing me to be independent, I need to use my money for other things.

I am the world's biggest pirate in the world!

Take that!

Seriously, if I buy CDs, it's to contribute to ONE person only...the others..well, too bad.

It makes me wonder how accurate their claims are when they say, "millions of dollars" because no one buys albums here in the states for the most part. All the money comes from is the music videos, which are endorsed, and then publishings, from magazines, television programs etc etc. Money is seldom made on the album itself.
