I like stuff.

Lengthy, with little value, but no advertisements.

Ok, so about a year or so ago, I signed up for a year's worth of service with one of them legitimate internet digital music companies. Cost me about two hundred bones. I won't say which, as I'm not their shill.

Over a thousand songs later, I'm thinking about the extra 800 bucks it would've cost me to have the DRM-encumbered versions through iTunes. Straight MP3s, 90 songs a month, and here's the final tally by band and number of songs picked up:

That is a whole lot of Evil Mothers. Excellent.

I just signed up for the free trial to check it out, though they made me put in a credit card # so I've already got a reminder set up to cancel it. If you only want my credit card number "to make sure you're an eligible free trial member", why do you need to start recurring billing after 14 days? Hmmmm.
