I put a plug in for MaSu, not sure how many will take heed. You guys started free music as far as I'm concerned, although NIN, Radiohead, and many others are trying to take credit for it. I've been following you since 2001, got both albums as soon as I could, and I'm damn proud of it. This is me saying thank you, and I hope you'll tour the US sometime soon.

I respect the hell out of NIN for going this way, and you can be sure I'll be looking for their music in 2008, but they're not the first to go this route.

has been free since 2000, although you can pay for their albums if you like (they encourage torrenting). I also encourage you to check out http://www.ocremix.org

Took me a while to find it, not really easy to find something at all there.

As far as I can see it's just a pissing contest to see who can get most Diggs on their articles.

the thing i love about digg isn't the number of diggs themselves but how often i find something worth commenting about. whether it's lame or awesome, i have conversation material, and they update like every 15 minutes. the votes do get ridiculous, but i've found a few good linux guides and whatnot this way.
