    I buy physical music because used CDs are dirt cheap. I also like be able to play stuff while I am driving. Messing around with a mp3 player while driving isn't a great idea. On the other hand my CD tower is huge and collects a ton of dust. So I don't mind digital versions either.

    Having things is very nice. Pretty much never buy digital when there's a physical alternative (re: Nintendo DLC). But yeah, you guys are seriously too honest about this retailer stuff. ;< Anyone heard of torrents..??

    I used to torrent things, then I got a job and decided I wanted to actually support people who make things I like, because they deserve it.

    I mean, I do like to support artists, but generally I do so by purchasing concert tickets and memorabilia and stuff. Most of the music I listen to is Japanese tho, so it's very hard to keep up with the scene there and pay like $50 for a single CD. T ^T

    I don't listen to too many artist so I don't really have to worry about supporting them. My of downloads are OST's and such.

    usually when I like a song by an artist, I'll just get torrent/dl/w,e the song itself. I simply can't justify paying like $3 for a song I can listen to on Youtube for free.

    I'm borrowing my friend's Mac (I'm Team HP) and I'm trying to post by using the shortcut alt + S but this Apple crap keeps doing a "ß" when I do that. Also, does this thing even have an End button???

    Use the Command key instead of Alt.

    Hmm let's see... nope, I think it's asking me to save this page, which I don't think my friend would want.

    $50 bucks is paying too much. People in Japan don't pay that much, it's a lot closer to $30. I don't recommend purchasing off amazon either, since besides higher prices there's quite a few bootlegs on there.

    Japan's got some real business consumer issues, which is why CDs are so expensive. It's generally not a good thing for the typical Japanese consumer, nor does any more of it go to the artists.

    I buy those when I can but importing most OST's are pretty pricey. Like importing Xenoblades OST would of set me back like $70 at the time.

    Finally got internet back!

    I had lost it for the last 3 hours or so during this snowstorm. It's been utter hell today, we got a foot of snow and then sleet in the afternoon and evening, God help you if you have to go anywhere in this mess.

    Stay safe Bolt. Winter sucks flat out. We haven't gotten any new snow as of late, but a few weeks ago it sucked here. A lot of rolled over cars, and accidents. I hope we don't get another major snowstorm, but winters not over yet.

    The only OST I payed for, was The World Ends With You, and I don't regret it in the slightest. I do listen to a lot of video game music though, and I don't know where to get a lot of my favorite titles other than youtube, plus I like remixes. XP

    On the digital Vs physical thing. I usually don't care either way, so I wind up going with whatever is cheaper (usually digital) but my weak spot is books, if at all possible, I was the physical copy.

    Wait and see empathy. You’re not the only one. Little by little you’ll feel a bit better. Lucky me destiny you are on my side. Just once more unto the breach. Dear friend, once more.

    I'm not doing anything particularly special today except hanging out with a few friends. Would sound more special if that didn't sum up every Friday for me. Also this.
