Thats sure to attract spam, google ranking and the valuation of this blog somewhat...
Am I a late bloomer to the world of online music?
Has the wild west of illegal mp3s finally subsided to the dark corners of the saloon, and music lovers are paying for what they want, and actually getting it - quickly without fuss?
How about that shitty Digirama. Still doing WMA files are they? Yeah. Actually, to give them some credit, I like how its music library has evolved. A shame about the DRM protected WMA files. Oh, whats this - Creative are advertsing their MuVos there too. Can I rate this site in negative? At least Orcon are tapping it for hits.
Any progress in legal mp3 downloads in NZ yet? To be honest, and to my discredit, I have not researched this bit before clunking on the keyboard. Instead, like belly fluff, i've a-mossed a few nice online places over the last few months where the music is free, mostly unknown, and reeking of choice.
I like the revamped for the (how many times now) mp3.com - a shame I cannot use it. Luckily they're under the umbrella of CNET and this includes download.com's music room. Genre after sub-genre after micro-genre. Who knew?
I found a love for turntablism, reaquainted myself with Chicago House and even found podcasts there. I've found multitudes of excellent quality music online, and Im not talking about mp3 quality - I mean 'mean' music production. You don't have to be an Iain Roberton to have access to Protools, with Sampletank or something close to it and are making music for a) fun, b) exposure, c) fun.
The gates have opened, gatekeeper. You are out of a job. Go turn signs. I hear its a peaceful career and you can stop hot chicks.
