Let ‘er Auto Rip

I’m still working out the implications of an announcement that came across my virtual transom this morning, but Amazon announced today that they are implementing a service called AutoRip for certain audio CD purchases.

R A D I O H E A D

Thanks to an intrepid UMW Blogger, it was brought to my attention that one of my favorite bands is releasing their new album as a download on October 10. How much will it cost. Well, you name the price. "No really, it’s up to you."   I never really care about how much a record

I Love My Calendar Girl

I came across a great example of this via the ccMixter website, which is a Creative Commons project site that allows you to use, re-use, and remix vocals, instrumental music, and other sound samples into new compositions.
