I used to be on Oink, but I'm not sure I can prove it to get into Waffles.

Ever heard of BitTorrent...? Or possibly everybody's old favorite, SLSK?

Oink was a Bit Torrent site. The best of the lot.

Yes, I know...but there are like 900 other ones. I can find anything and everything I've ever wanted, by way of SLSK and various search engines. It just takes a while, sometimes.

Alternative to Oink:

Stop being a self-centered, spoiled, Western douche and pay for your own entertainment. Stop raping the artists, labels, and industry you're supposedly a fan of. You're the reason shit music is popular. I hate you all.

I agree, there are plenty of torrent sites and other methods of acquiring rare shit. Oink was just so amazingly convenient.

And I once had absolutely no intention of ever touching Soulseek, but damnit, there's rare Kiwi music I want that I cannot find anywhere. Good luck to anybody trying to find anything by 1960s Wellington pop band The Avengers besides an MP3 of their biggest hit, Everyone's Gonna Wonder.

Cheers for that - I'm personally just looking for downloads, but I may have to get that live disc for my father as I know it's missing from his collection. My great-uncle, with whom I've long since lost contact, was actually in the band, hence our interest. My father has the studio albums but not in a format I can transfer to my computer.

I just bought 13 CDs last night.

Still want to call me self-centered and unsupportive of artists?
