I hang on Lefsetz’s words now. I check Bloglines too much anyway, but whenever I do, I’m hoping beyond hope he’s posted a new diatribe. His post tonight is so righteous and spot on that it makes me insanely jealous that I can’t articulate it like he can. I read his stuff and I think to myself, “Copetas, you are a shit writer.”
His post tonight is about the ITunes Music Store and I couldn’t agree more. Just look at this quote:
“Then stop buying into the hype. Ignore ridiculous pronouncements of well-endowed vaporware and get down in the pit with the proletariat. Eighty million people have iPods, not because theyâ€™re tied to the iTunes Music Store, but because they work best. Most people fill their iPods with music theyâ€™ve acquired anywhere BUT the iTunes Music Store. Itâ€™s a circle jerk to see the iTunes Music Store as the future of acquisition and itâ€™s even more of a circle jerk to believe you can deliver less, for INCOMPATIBLE DEVICES, and people will want these new services more.
A lot of unprotected music for a low price that you own permanently. This is the only solution. To think otherwise is to be ignorant.”
The bolding is my doing. Right on, baby!! Right on the nose!!!!
