Downloading, Ripping, Burning, Streaming, Capturing, Rock 'n Roll'n

Hi All!

Once I become obsessed with something I grit my teeth and jump fearlessly out of the trench into the full fury of enemy fire.

The Rooskie music download site seems to be legit and I got my rubles' worth.

Today I took things a step further. It's one thing to download a file, but how to save a free sample that only plays but is not savable?

Ask Google and ye shall receive. I'm too smart to start feeling smug, but I think I have figured out how to get any tune I want at little or no cost. Do I feel guilty? HECK NO!

Trust me, the day is coming soon when we will be able to save music, video, whatever on free, advertiser-supported bases -- just like radio and tv.

Won't say what all I captured today as with my luck a copyright lawyer might happen upon this lonely blog.

Suffice it to say that I am rocking out at this very moment with new and exciting music. Rock and Roll lives!

And I guess it's ok to recommend that new Def Leppard album of popular and obscure 70's covers of Bowie, Kinks, T Rex, Sweet, Faces and most interesting of all, David Essex. You see, I bought a copy when it came out but "someone", ahem, lost the disc and all I had was an empty jewel box. Now it's got a perfectly legal, 50 cent copy in it. Thank God the Cold War is over.


PS. Just found out that Wal*Mart, of all places, has a special version with 4 extra songs. Surf's Up!

Beware my friend, beware. I basically am married to Mr. Dances with Downloads, and he knows all the hoops. One time I went to download some free music and my whole desktop became a mass of porn icons. I don't think I talked to him for three hours as he explored the uterus of my hard drive in search of all the eggs laid. Excuse the metaphor, but the corruption was hard to find. Basically what you need to do is get into some Newsgroups and that will help you find your virus free music etc.
