I don't understand people here paying $150 for t-shirts or ties and unwilling to drop a few bucks on an album. I just don't get that. Is it simply because it's easier to steal music than clothes that people continue to do the former and pay through the nose for the latter?
I download free music because it is cheaper than paying for it and the repercussions are virtually non-existent. Pretty self-explanatory, no?
Unfortunately, it is. The music you download is not free though.
It's also incredibly immature for someone who brags about his job and spending habits ad nauseum.
My conscience is clean. Yours may not be.
At face value:
Some bad logic here.
I'm going to bat for Metro here. He's just saying what I guarantee you a vast majority of people do.
It seems rather hypocritical to spend exorbitant amounts of money on luxury fashion on the one hand then turn around and say you don't want to enrich the recording industry fat cats. How are the fat cats in the music industry any different than those in fashion or any other industry? It's also a rather fallacious argument given that the major record labels have been on the decline for years while independent labels have been doing relatively better at their expense (at least prior to the current recession).
