Obviously, I like music. Therefore, I really like a service that lets me listen to pretty much anything I want for only $5 a month, and that's Rhapsody. I never liked the whole peer to peer piracy phenomenon because I could connect the dots ("But if bands don't make money, then how can they afford to stay together?" "No, man, it's cool, dude; music wants to be free!"). With such low prices, Rhapsody obviously isn't paying much, but at least they're legal and paying record companies and artists something. Not everything's on there, of course. Stuff that's out of print isn't, and some bands such as AC/DC have done the math and figured that they're better off just selling cds the old-fashioned way. So I still buy records. But a lot of stuff I only listen to once or twice just to see if I really like it, so Rhapsody is ideal for that. In general, I like most music, but I only really like a bit of music a lot (this year, only Bobby Conn's "Govt" has done it for me). So hooray for Rhapsody, which helps me find those rare nuggets!
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google and Amazon plop ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google or Amazon has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). I also track visitors through a Sitemeter counter just to see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
