[Current Mood |ditzyditzy]









When I see file sharing debates pop up & the heated arguments on either side - I think back to when I was a teenager & this dilema didn't exist. If I wanted Led Zepplin's whiney & overplayed "Stairway to Heaven" single (OK sue me, I was - I swear the only person I knew who hated Led Zepplin.. anyhoo) I either had to buy it, or steal it. So I suppose I'm just used to having to purchase a record - I'm sure if I had grown up with Soulseek & Bit Torrent, I'd hardly give it a second thought.

Push comes to shove - Sooner or later, the Record companies would have got to figure out how to make money, - and I wonder if paying for the CD would have been cheaper when I hear about the marketing schemes of Hip-Hop videos. ^^;; I saw the program on TV recently- & a lot of the info is at their website:
Rhyme Pays I like this show because it treats teenagers like people with brains & the ability to be smart consumers.


(& if Sony makes a profit or not, it's not something I tend to lose sleep over... I look at my scary CDJapan account & know I've done my part - and if I need to worry about something, it's social justice or something like that =p)





A big *chu~* to the talented evening_rose Liad for the SMILE DVD Captures Apologies to nyde as I always feel compelled to be a nuisance & spam her with photos...

That's how the older generation of fangirls is - we rather spend a fortune than taking 'advantage' of modern technologies, just because we are so used to it. We think all those downloads are o.k. for TV shows, old files, things no longer available on the market etc.(and we gratefully partake), but for actual releases its not quite alright. And then the pleasure when your package from cdjapan arrives...
The screencaps are gorgeous! We did not do any for two reasons: we don't have time and the entire DVD is so capworthy that it simply would not make any sense - just enjoy the moving image!

as much as i love hyde, i need tetsu screencaps ;_;

But that shot with the moon behind hyde ... wow.

Right now I have a huge dilemma. Do I buy the SMILE tour DVD or do I buy a couple of CDs? x__x *shoots self in the foot* I hate loving music, sometimes.

Absolutely lovely pictures. I haven't been online in a while and wanted to say hi. ^_^ I miss my favorite Laruku queen. Your pictures always end up being a "pick me up" for me. ^_^ I'm sorry about the heat and your sinuses... *yells at the sky* STOP BEING SO HOT
well, you know the reason is probably it's summer and we're going through global warming. >_< *huggles to helayne*
