Hi I'm doing a math thing about music, (statistics and so on) so I would like to know how many cd's you've bought the last month or downloaded (pirate-ish) the last month.

Thanks ^^

Bought two albums.
Because I believe the band should get PAYED for their work.


do you know how much of that money actually ended up in the bands hands?

not much.

But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

I would NEVER download something from a new band, though if it's an old and popular band I probably would
#14
Bought 1 album, downloaded roughly 90 cd's in the past month, so that might be like 900 songs.

But this month I've bought 5, downloaded 1.
But to be fair, that one album was available to download of his site for free.

Yeah, I just feel like I'm ripping them off. Which I am if I were to download it illegally.

I used to pirate a lot of music, but since i realised how hard it actually is for a musician to make money, i've stopped. If i don't have the money to buy a CD i want, i simply won't buy it, and will wait till i can. I've found, however, that if i buy something purely on spec, i appreciate it a lot more than if i had downloaded it to see what a band is like.

Anyway, to answer your question, i've done neither in the last month. End of term and all, loan money is tending towards zero.

Don't like downloading stuff for free like whole albums; and i'm too skint to buy them at the minute.
You cannot choose the little time you're given in this world. You enter bare and unclothed, provided only with intelligence enough to choose how you spend your time. You always have a choice. Always. Though be warned, your choice can rarely be undone

I'd be rightfully pissed if "fans" downloaded my work freely. Plus, it's very expensive to record and make CDs.

Great.


You just single-handedly caused an entire future generation of people to be flushed down the toilet.

Good job, TS.

I downloaded all of the Dead Kennedy's albums this month.

So like 10.

Basicly, I only really buy local bands stuff.

what if it were a choice between them downloading it for free, becoming fans and coming to live shows
or
not wanting to spend the money and not hearing it at all?

That's why bands make a small selection of songs available on their website, or on myspace, for free.
