There's a genre of music called Braindance, though it's more commonly referred to as IDM. The more you know!
Sod it, I'm not a good writer. *runs off*

I don't really know any of the things that any of the options refer to but (2) seems the most appealing to me.
Ala Translation Party.

Yep, that's blind idiot translation for ya.
Nothing like caps lock cryptology.

I wouldn't mind it if not for my (light) laziness and my need for a complete cover and despair of no vocals.
No, Radiohead is good.

Each to their own man, each to their own. It just happens to be a topic I feel strongly about, but no disrespect. I was not saying that you called me lazy. I am just saying I am lazy. My magazines are lying about the room. I feel no disrespect. I actually enjoy listening to other opinions.
You didn't read his previous blog, did you?

I will say, although there are a few music gear shops where I live, finding a music store is like finding a needle in a stack of hay in a stack of metal in a stack of et cetera.
Can you not buy online? Amazon, iTunes, etc.
Thirdly, how do you buy an album when you have zero dollars/cents and the album you want costs 36 of your currency?
I sorta follow the logic of Crackfox about pirating, but in a different way. I pirate for three reasons: It isn't available for purchase, I want to try it out first, and/or because I don't want to be left behind my friends who already have it.
Reason 1: I used to go to iTunes for everything, but the more music I found I liked, the less dependable iTunes became because I could not, for the life of me, find it. For example, I wanted an InuYasha on my ipod, but iTunes only had a Karaoke version of it. I got the Karaoke version because it was all they had, but it wasn't the same. I wanted that song, the WHOLE song, because I liked it and it had good memories associated with it. Should I be denied the nostalgia and full enjoyment of the song because I can't find a way to legally obtain it?
Reason 2: When Black and White were on their way here to the US, I wanted them so badly, but I didn't even have a DS, or the money to buy one. We were barely getting by on what we had, and had to save money only for what was direly important. So when Black and White came out, I was hugely depressed because as fun as it looked, I couldn't do anything about it. One of my friends helped me out by introducing me to emulation, and teaching me how to do it so that I could still play Pokemon Black, despite my next to nonexistent wallet. For almost a year, I satisfied myself with a cropped version of Pokemon Black *since anything having to do with interacting with other players was out of the question*. It was so much fun to play, even without the wifi/wireless stuff, I promised to buy it as soon as I could afford to.
Then, when the times got a little bit better and we had some breathing room, I asked my parents for enough money to buy a Nintendo DS and Pokemon Black. They gave me $100 in my paypal, I went to ebay, and I bought a used DS that came with a free copy of Pokemon Diamond and Yoshi's Island Advanced, and an incredibly cheap brand new copy of Pokemon Black. So yes, I did pirate the game, but I did it with the intention of buying it when I could, and I followed through on that.
Reason 3: Pokemon Black was the hottest game coming out at the time, and everyone was playing it except me. I felt left out because all of my friends had a copy of the game and were talking about it, and I barely knew what they were talking about. A guy named N? A gym leader who had two incredibly annoying Emolga? A Castle instead of the league? What did all of that mean? What the heck were they talking about?
I felt incredibly out of the loop, and couldn't find common ground because I didn't know anything about the games that could only be discovered by playing them. They're my best friends, but they were clearly having a lot of fun talking about this without me. It wasn't fair, and it COULD have gotten nasty. Either I would have resented them over time or, if I asked them to not talk about it around me, they would have resented me. Basically, emulating saved my relationship with my friends because we were all on the same playing field once again. I did eventually buy the game, so it all turned out fine in the end.
He should ask his mom to buy it for him then.
You don't need to live in a third world country to not be able to afford music. $15 for a CD is fucking expensive.
