For quite a long time I've been intending to post some sort of commentary on the music industry - piracy, distribution, morality, those types of things. I've thought about it many times, but never gone through with it, because the issue is such a broad, messy one - such a difficult thing to address fairly and compactly. I knew it would result in a rambly, unfocused commentary, and my exact opinion has teetered back and forth quite a bit over the years anyway. But on Monday, when I woke up to the news that Oink, the world famous torrent site and mecca for music-lovers everywhere, had been shut down by international police and various anti-piracy groups, I knew it was finally time to try and organize my thoughts on this huge, sticky, important issue.

Oh, and he needs an invite. Someone throw him something. I'm not sure if he'll be able to use it though, since it doesn't look like he knows how to read. :P (Ok, that's an exaggeration...)

I'm a bastard, I know. But I'm also stressed and annoyed, so.... feh, stupid git.
