The Mp3 Manifesto By Blex
Here is my explanation for Mp3's and why people get them.
you are driving in your car and you hear a song that you havn't heard
in years. For the sake of a bad title the songs name is "GoodSong".
That song is immediately your favorite song. You then drive to about 50
music stores to find "GoodSong" but you have no luck. You call in to
the radio stations to play it again but they just never play it. That
nite while surfing
the net you find something new called Mp3s. You find out the Mp3s are
CD quality music that you can play on your computer with a good sound
card and an mp3 player. You try some Mp3 search sites for a while and
you realize that none of them show results for "GoodSong". You then
try Blex's Page of Good Mp3 and after searching through some ftp sites
on it you don't find "GoodSong" but you find about 10 other songs
you've always loved. After viewing various loaded, working, and good
sites on Blex's Page you click one more site on the bottom and after
scrolling by you almost jump out of your seat when you see that
is finally found!!! After spending a short time with the fastest CPS
rate available (Blex's Page of Good Mp3 has great fast sites) you sit
back for hours listening to "GoodSong" and drinking cheap ass whiskey
while sitting in a whirlpool thinking of the fun times you had while
listening to "GoodSong" and the 10 other songs you found. After a month
find "GoodSong" at a gas station selling old CD's for 50 cents. You buy
the CD go home and then make your own Mp3 of "GoodSong" just as your
personal tribute to "GoodSong" You
then go home live a nice happy life while working at a factory making
pinball machine parts.
It has come to my attention that people are
saying Mp3's are illegal. I don't like that at all. I see several
reasons for getting Mp3s. 1. Radio stations never play your favorite
songs. 2. MTV hardly even plays songs anymore. 3. CD's cost to much
money, and money involves work, and you get no work done sitting on
computers. 4. You just like music and think it's cool and like to
listen to music.
Another thing, it's not like Mp3's are ever
going to become a standard. Most people still don't know shit about
computers and if they do probably 1% or so know of the elite ways
to get warez and mp3's because probably all the rest are stupid people
who are afraid of doing wrong or just don't even know it exists because
they are to stupid to even know how to operate a mouse (they just get a
computer to say "Yup, our family is on the net!". Mp3's it's kinda
obvious you need a computer, and it's not like they are gonna make
CD companies lose anything because your not gonna see kids hauling big
desktop computers everywhere to the beach and in their cars with them
to listen to music like they would with a portable CD player.
I've sort of started to ramble on so if
you've read this far good job (sometimes I lose myself when I'm
writting manifesto's like this). All in all
I think that Mp3 causes NO HARM AT ALL. Mostly teens do mp3ing right
now and mostly just because we like music and wanna listen to our
favorite songs. With all the crime problems going on in the world would
you rather have teenagers running around killing, raping, disecting,
and doing other stuff to people in real life? Or would you
rather have us PEACEFULLY sitting on the computer all in harmony
enjoying music we enjoy?
