Good, cause I lost the link and had to spend 10 minutes digging through my browser history to find it :)

And I'll explain further why I like it. I like it, because if artists really do live off tips, I want to tip them well, and in a way that they will actually get it. Hell, if record companies are being piece of shits, I'd rather pirate an album and send the artist money through paypal or something. I have no qualms about paying for music, as long as that money goes to the musician.

And Courtney Love did a pretty damn good job of selling herself in her own words in that article, without any fucking record company promotions, because it makes /me/ want to check out her music.

I don't like a lot of her shit, she's a bit too - off the deep end - for me but this is right up in my all time top 20

Courtney Love's music is almost as terrible as her personality. She's probably the worst person ever, though she's still spot-on in alot of that article.

I also follow the "if I like it I'll find a way to get the artists some of my money" rationalization for pirating music. But I do follow through; I'll buy a band's t-shirt direct from their website and/or see them live if I have the chance, both of which put FAR more money in their pockets than buying a CD. One flaw in that line of thinking, though, is that it excludes all the people who work in the music industry and aren't artists. That $15 for a CD doesn't just go to fattening Tommy Mottola's or David Geffen's pockets, it also goes to the audio engineers, producers, graphic artists, etc. who are instrumental in any given band's finished product.

I gotta say, there is nothing in this statement I disagree with.

Which is why fee-for-service models are better than pyramid schemes IMO.

Looks like the channel is back on-line, and it still has some live performances.
