I Like Buying Music

Ridiculousness: Can you believe this nonsense? Taco Bell stole my name for their Bacon Cheddar Gordita Crunch. I refuse to stand for this sillyness. As the original Bacon Chedda I declare an immediate boycott of this product!

Music: I don't understand people that buy albums instead of just illegally downloading them for the sole reason of "supporting" the artist. Now, there are a lot of reasons you should buy your music instead of stealing it: stealing's illegal, you're not savvy enough to go around the system, you want to give a cd as a gift, etc etc. But if your only purpose is to support an artist and you don't care about doing illegal things, then the most efficient means of doing this is to download the songs for free then send whatever you would have paid for it to the artist directly. In fact, you could even keep half of whatever the record company would have gotten and you'd both be better off. Simple economics.
