[ACT] Buying Music
#1
Music 
Where do you get your music?

From the moment CDs appeared on the scene, I couldn't imagine spending more than $12 on an album and with but a few exceptions, that's how I built my collection (although I still prefer Vinyl). When computer downloads became the thing I started downloading the songs I had bought as it was easier to download them than pull them off a CD IMO.

Now it seems like they're putting the screws to us with these downloadable songs. It feels like I'm being raped by a $1 or more per song (acceptable for those prog rock ballads that go on 10 minutes or more though) these days.

I dislike iTunes however it seems like spending piles of money on marketing and intimidation tactics makes something standard. 7Digital is all right but still expensive.

Where do you acquire music and what do you play it with? Multiple devices?

TPB and Demonoid as well as the occasional music blog I find that covers obscure bands. Yeah, yeah. But if it were still in print I'd likely already have paid for it. Besides, most of the music I get would be in the public domain in a sane society.

Are there any sane societies?
