unauthorized file sharing is illegal. but if it were to do it, i would get an invite to what.cd

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

For Mac? You simply can't do better than Acquisition. It's for Mac only. You can register it for...like....19.95. Better yet, you won't get ANY of the random popups or spyware that you get on other sharing networks.

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

For individual songs = limewire

For whole albums = torrent

limewire does not leave a large footprint on your computer and it doenst use much bandwidth, as long as you stick to mp3 files(music files) you wont get a virus. should we really care that millionaire artists lose a bit of money on record sales, no, power to the people. Yes i did use utorrent to try to download a movie but had trouble playing it after. Bearshare doesnt work, just another program smothered by the RIAA, heres teh link.

I'm on a Mac, and from one Moby man to another, I wonder why you say that Topher?

I've had no probs with music the last 3 years.

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

If you really want to be all "power to the people", and bring down the Machine, then buy your shit at Walmart or Best Buy. Seriously. They can't compete with the internet (legal or illegit), so they sell all new release CD's and DVD's at a loss.

Check out the book "The Long Tail" by Chris Anderson, it's fascinating how even though we see big business as this unstoppable evil force, a lot of those companies are teetering on the verge of collapse now because of ebay or amazon marketplace or internet communities that sell hard-to-find moped parts to each other.

jerry, limewire is bad because:

one song at a time means i have to have a track list of every album i want, and pray that all of them are up there.

most of the video files on there are just relabeled porn, or require divx player, which is notorious for spyware and shit.

slow.

pain in the ass to search because of all the lame files that come up with every single search.

corrupted files up the ass.

virtually impossible to get older or more obscure music and movies.

mobies are good though.

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

Limewire is about the best way to ensure a visit from the **AA "police", it's one of the most heavily monitored networks because it's so popular. ESPECIALLY if you're on a college network, college kids seem to be the main targets, scare tactics you know.

Personally I download all my non-copyrighted works using uTorrent with forced protocol encryption.

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

limewire should be called "balls-sucking-wire". Has nobody else here any love for soulseek?

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

honestly the BEST way to download music is to go to friends houses and make a copy of their itunes collection and add it to yours.

i also am a huge fan of the itunes store. its only 1 dollar, its fucking instant and you are supporting musicians. not that i am all opposed to pirating, but i try to do it right when i can.

a LOT of musicians offer free downloads of their cd's nowadays. at least the smart ones. either through their myspace, homepage or through a seperate service. i just recently started working in the music industry myself and just did a bunch of stuff for roger clyne and the peacemakers (awesome rock band). we recorded their live performances and made them available download.

shameless plug in 3...2....1.....

http://www.lipser.tv/rcpm.html it was a 2 hour live broadcast. seperated into parts with mp3 downloads available of each performance.

we are currently talking with another amazing hiphop/jazz/rap group called antedote

shamless plug in 3...2...1...

<http>//www.myspace.com/antedote> these guys are amazing live. 2-4 singers/rappers , amazing drummer, trumpet, saxaphone, keyboard, guitars and percussion.

anyway, the point is, the internet is FULL of awesome music, whether on the bands site, the music labels site or on a site like ours. hit google everyone in a while and find new shit!

Re: Random question:What do you use to download mu

Google:

site:mediafire.com insert band/album here

that usually works for me

other times i'll google the band name/album + .zip/.rar and download that
