torrents / vuze

I know it’s a faux pas to say it, but its true that I have used to torrents.  I’ve also gone on some of those russian sights where they post albums.

I do this sometimes, but I always buy songs and albums when i have money.

whats funny to me is when these sights want $upport from me, the user.  Vuze, its the funniest.  Torrents – despite whatever weird copyright loopholes, or moral stances you find/take/manipulate to justify using them, torrents are stealing.

thats why its funny when vuze wants me to donate (or torrents sights, or  whatever).  Donate to what?  Thats a bit wall street, isn’t it?  Like, if I had money, isn’t it better to direct it to artists, filmmakers, musicians, writers, or whoever else it is that is really providing the product?

Thats why I like bandcamp so much, i guess.  Pay what you can is an honest and inclusive principal.

Like, music shouldn’t be a privilege, or moreover, shouldn’t be for the privileged few.

I already am pissed that my tax money funds weapons manufacturing and not music education.  But this situation isn’t made better by having a download sight distribute the music without artists consent, and these sights don’t deserve my money as much as the artists who’s music I’m after.

I mean, I would maybe be more into it if axxo were doing things to costs tom cruise his personal money, while he is manipulating tax loopholes to rob the people of california; or if torrents substantially took away profits from giant hollywood propaganda distibuters, and gave them to indie films and progressive documentary film makers…but a downloading breeders album, or something? a copy of “inside job”? Come on; if I had money, I’d buy it. (I actually, at one point or another, have bought all of the breeders LPs, and the amps.)

It seems crooked/backwards to me…”just sayin”…

On a side note, yes i did watch “inside job” yesterday, and yes, that’s why I made the wall street and tom cruise references.  Its a great doc and I reccomend it to anyone interested in understanding how america is attacking the rest of the world.

About jefrab

hahaha. I'm just a funny guy who sits at home on my computer a lot, and dj's a bit, and makes music sometimes, and tries to teach himself how to use complicated software of all types. I'm a hippy from an island of 800, who grew up without a radio or flush toilet, but who has somehow managed to make his way around the world, and learn the difference between chinos and khakis...
