I used to rip CDs into MP3s when the first players were introduced. Not saying the companies didn't benefit from file sharing, but the "Where do you think those mp3s came from?" can easily be answered with "My CD collection that I bought"

Megaupload was profiting nicely from file sharing. That's why the gubment went nuclear on them.

But if the people who create the content that gets "provided" don't make enough money to pay the rent, they won't create that content anymore. Then content provision stops, and the money flow to the providers stops as well.

That makes sense, but I think companies, much like individuals, tend to think in terms of immediate benefit, perhaps hoping to adapt later when the well runs dry. I'm not promoting file-sharing at all; I just thought it was an interesting perspective.

I knew you were simply quoting because it interested you; but I think chronic downloaders don't think about the personal consequences of their habits, or the possible long-term effects.

Zooropa is still Mt. Rushmore material. Like, all-time history of music Mt. Rushmore. Hallelujah.

Holy shit, Lemon sounds like it's melting. And when Daddy's Gonna Pay kicks back in with YOU'VE GOT A HEAD FULL OF TRAFFIC and rattles my speakers, that's bliss. What a beautiful yet distant record. It sounds like it's transmitting from Mars but still manages to communicate the usual oversized U2 emotions that make hipsters uncomfortable.

People shat all over Zooropa when it was released, but it's held up better than nearly every piece of junk they were playing on the radio at the time.

I remember absolutely hating Zooropa when I first heard it, it's now a favourite of mine.

I just listened to some of it on my way in to work this morning. I like everything on the record save for Babyface.

I've been listening to the album for a decade come October (wtf, old) and it's one of the U2 albums still growing on me. Achtung Baby, TUF and Boy are also on that list. It's pretty interesting. I always secretly thought I might grow out of U2, but no. Not at all. Some of it keeps improving. Some of it doesn't (War, basically all of the 00s stuff), but what can you do.

Hey Jive, how fucking good is Dog Man Star? With Daddy's Gonna Pay and this, I've already heard half a dozen songs about heroin today!

Dog Man Star is fucking awesome. Best Suede album (I think Laz disagrees) and one of the big 90s albums for me, so I've got a lot of nostalgia for it. It sounds a little dated now, but still, solid album
