I felt this was relevant to the thread.


So here's the plan
The Ides of March are always at hand
And when the power hungry strike
They strike the poorest of man
And if you dare put up a fight
They'll come and fight for your land
And they'll call it liberation or salvation
A call to the youth
Your freedom ain't so free, it's just loose
But the power of your voice could redirect any truth
Shift and shape the world you want
And keep your fears in a noose
Let them dangle from a banner star spangled
I'm willing and able
To lift my dreams up out of their cradle
Nurse and nurture my ideals
'Til they're much more than a fable
I can be all I can be and do much more than I'm paid to
And I won't be a slave to
What authorities say do
My desire to live within a nation on fire
Where creative passions burn and raise the stakes ever higher
Where no person is addicted to some twisted supplier
Who promotes the sort of freedom sold to the highest buyer


- Saul Williams, Act III, Scene II

Actually, yes.

So you don't have to feel that you were the only sucker who paid.

That was quite good Payne, LMNO.

i'll pay you precisely as much as i would charge you for downloading one of my songs lmno.

that is, squat.   :D

now if you wanted an imaged CD, complete with cover art and inserts, I'd charge you for the materials, of course.

"I will pay you NOTHING HAHA!"
yes, very tactful. :roll:

do you just get offensive by accident or something? I don't get it.

Yeah, FUCK YOU LMNO! I'm going to dl and enjoy the FUCK out of that recording but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay you shit for it! I'm not going to not pay you quietly, either, I'm going to TELL you about it so you KNOW HOW MUCH I'M NOT PAYING YOU SQUAT to enjoy your work!

In fact, I want everyone to know, so I'm going to go take a bus just so I can tell everyone on it that I didn't pay for what I'm listening to, and that it came from YOU. I erased everything else from my iPod and just have that one recording looping over and over again. Forever.

Fuck you, bubblegummer, I'm taking a fuck-off big boombox out with that recording on a loop, so I won't just be copying it, I'll be unauthorised public broadcasting it too! And what's more I'll rip some short segments of it and copy them, so I'll have "duplication in whole AND part" covered while I'm at it.
