    Pffffft. Just like that.


    "Scupper" ... now there's a word you don't see in American newspapers.

    I still had a credit balance with them. Damn.

    A co-worker had $17 on her balance. Damn.

    Given their legal situation I ran my balance down into the negative months ago.

    Wait, isn't the balance actually with the "middle man" agency? I know I didn't pay them directly. Maybe I can still use that account ...

    That's what you get for paying for music in the first place ;)

    I tried my old log-in ... won't work. Tried to sign up and found out "already a user with that name." Well, fuck.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again: The people who write and perform the music you listen to have the right to be paid for their work. Their money comes from royalties on sales. If you want to have good music to listen to, you have a responsibility to repay the people who make that music.

    Downloading is for foofs.

    The majority of the artists' money comes from other things (i.e. concerts, endorsements, etc.) Record companies get a majority of the profits from record sales, therefore I have no problem doing so.

    Coffee, the next time you buy a CD, remember that it takes the record company a whopping $3 to produce. CD, jewel case, book, etc.
    I ain't paying that mark-up.

    AllTunes (a software program to browse Allofmp3's catalogue and buy songs) still seems to be working...

    Also, mp3Sparks.com seems to have the exact same songs as allofmp3
