A Quiet Normal Life

A life lived half in Atlanta, half in London

I joined Rhapsody, Itunes and Napster when I got my first and “still” hated Ipod, and I hate them all with a passion it is not quite possible to describe.

I care a lot about music, especially ‘real’ music, that takes experience, blood sweat and tears to create and love into shape. Artists who make that sort of music require nurturing and support, only a few of them get rich and a lot of them fall by the wayside into other careers and something less demanding and exposing.

DRM is simply not required for me, because I would NEVER copy and share music to give to friends. If someone asks me for a copy, and I liked them well enough, I’d simply buy them a copy of what they enjoyed hearing out of my collection: and I’ve done that quite a lot.

However, the curse of DRM is with us and fouling up our machines and lives without surcease.

Along cometh Emusic.com who have managed to put together a worthwhile online collection and presence and they are nice, honest and the thing works with almost everything hard and soft. Extraordinary!

Perhaps they are a bit lighter on sheer content than the the behemoths, maybe, but they are heavy on indies and new musicians and that’ll do fer me.!
