A painting of me

The day the music industry died. ⇒

More on Radiohead and other artists taking control of the distribution of their music. Trent Reznor has similar ideas.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.



  1. I just bought the boxset for 40 pounds to complete my collection.

    and I know at least a few others who have as well — when was the last time any of us forked over 80 bucks for a cd? I have a feeling that they would actually make money. I think it’s pretty smart having two options – free or really really expensive. It gives people like me the ability to think that I’m a bigger fan than those too cheap to pay for their music.

  2. Well the box set actually comes with actual records and other junk, so it’s a big step up from a CD. 80 bucks is a lot of money. I wonder what my brother, the serious-ass Radiohead fan in our family, decided to do.

    I also feel like picking up the digital version of the album to let them know it’s a good idea. How much is straight up digital music worth though?

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
