It's getting harder to steal music

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    Which SUCKS, because I don't do iTunes, and fuck spending money on CDs.

    But ever since the debacle with Megaupload, it's been increasingly hard to find free music online -- even much of the older, slightly more obscure stuff I like. Mediafire and Rapidshare used to be godsends to me, but they have pretty much scrubbed their servers in the past year. This leaves me with only unreliable torrents, and I HATE torrents for downloading full-length albums.

    Grrr....

    So where do you get most of your music from these days? Do you buy it from a store, buy it online, or do you steal it in the form of an .mp3, .zip or .rar? Or do you just stream online or listen on YouTube?

    Meh... the sound quality really sucks that way. But I've done it as a last resort.

    Make an account on vk.com. Its like facebook but allows music and video sharing. You can find almost any song you want but if you want to download it(not just listen) you have to install some plugin for your browser that allows you to dl from that website.

    This takes me back to when I used to hold a tape recorder up to the radio...

    I've never really used spotify but I've heard you can listen to whole albums for free. I usually just use youtube.

    My video down loader no longer works on youtube. It worked for a while after I updated, but not any more. :(
     
  11. I never liked megaupload or kimdot com because he pretends to be one thing but is another. He only cares about himself and how much money he can get. I know the traditional movie and music industries are a bunch of crooks... But at least they employ way more people than Megaupload ever did.

    You know I bought myself a turntable for $30 And I can get record for as little as 2 records for a buck on the obscure stuff. But I also got my hands on Joplin and the Stones for $10.

    Often higher quality than the original recording needs....

    It's a pain if you want an album or something, but hey, piratin' ain't easy.

    And it's great for rare stuff that shows up there.

    Why would anyone give out their quality sites to strangers on a public forum and risk them becoming known/publicized and shut down as a result :confused:

    Yeah, because the traffic that flows through this site is just incredible!!

    That doesn't mean I steal. I'm just saying in general... it would be stupid for people to share that info. It's like asking a guy who has a source for free coke to share it with you.
