Or, you know, one of these downloaders may have sex with me, or give me a column in a magazine, or ask me to come and give a talk at an art school...

isn't that sort of the intent of the internet to connect people? that seems to be what the industry is most scared of.

i went to the virgin megastore in union square for the first time over the weekend and could not bring myself to spend $18 on vashti bunyan or pink mountaintops though i fully intended on purchasing them. had they even been $14 i would have. instead i went home and angrily downloaded them. so, the virgin megastore actually promoted aggressive downloading from me, and i'm a passive person. they are obviously looking to start a fight.

I wish I could find the Vashti Bunyan album in a real store for £10. (which is what $18 directly translates to at the moment)

Virgin Megastores' standard non-offer price for any album they happen to have sitting about ignored on a shelf is £16.99, I noticed yesterday. Almost $30. Oh, economies.
