I won't get it in time to use it against Sonovu this weekend but thanks for the link, Mike.

You can't use MP3s as coasters or anti-cat disciplinary weapons either.

I saw Manu posted and got all excited, since the brother never posts but then I remembered he posts as Spuds.

I can't break the CD habit - I need liner notes, rare pics, etc.

Trev - off night. It happens. Rayned - Both. Depends on what your agenda is. I generally turn down gigs where I don't think I'll do a good job. You can work with the room as is. I think that's generally a good strategy, because I have a lot of faith in people who are doing something goofy like Lindy...

Live recordings are cool. Generally, if there's crap at the beginning, I usually cue up to remove it from play. I might let applause at the end of the track run out, if it's not too long. Usually, I fade it out at about 4-6 seconds.

Well, those are the breaks when you sign on the dotted line. I'm willing to accept that corporations are soulless automatons if you're willing to except that most artists would never have been successful and able to feed their families without them. Even Orpheus couldn't get his way all of the time....

My personal opinion is that the current U.S. copyright laws concerning decades-old music, and the fear those laws and their application seem to engender, are stunting cultural growth. Just my opinion. Yeah, God forbid there be another measure of ownership & wealth other than physical property. Ther...

Unless you count those that feel it's okeh to trade burned collections, stiff artists, micromanage musicians, browbeat other posters, take any kind of stance on any kind of music or complain about events.

On second thought, we are all jerks.

Man, I really try not to bust on singers I know because I can't sing at all. Zilch. But I completely skipped every track Hilary sang on. It got to the point where I stopped the CD, looked up all the vocal credits and only listened to the instrumentals. I heard some loose pieces of Campus 5 material ...

And since the artists are dead, it's okeh to cheat their children, grandchildren and whatever estates/trusts remain because *you're* proud to be a jerk.
