two years running, still complaining
Don't forget this week I'll be celebrating my two year blog anniversary with lots of fun and whatever else comes our way.
I've been looking through the archives that still exist and guess what? One year ago today, I was bitchy, antagonistic and rude. The more things change, eh?
I did manage to find some of my archives dating back to February, 2001 thanks to the Wayback Machine.
Here's my entry from 2/27/01:
ebruary 27, 2001 Corporate Bullshit Read this article at slashdot so you can see for yourself what bullshit the RIAA is throwing at the public. I've been talking about this for a long time about how record sales are actually up, not down. The slashdot research proves it. Read this AP article and then go back and look over the slashdot piece again. Propaganda, anyone? Honestly, I don't really care if millionares are losing a couple of cents each time someone downloads one of their songs. Do you have any idea how many shitty cds I have purchased in my lifetime? (insert Re-Load joke here). I don't see anyone suing the RIAA or Metallica on my behalf because I spent money on something that is now a beer coaster. If you are going to penalize people for wanting to hear songs before they buy them, then penalize the bands for making the shitty music that forces me to pre-listen to what I am going to be throwing down $14.99 for.
I am not going to divulge the rest of it and most of you don't even know the cheesy tripod address of my original blog, so don't bother looking. I'll present you with the embarassing beginnings of my blog when I'm ready!
Right now we are headed over to my parents house for a belated dinner/dessert celebration of DJ's birthday. When I get back I will begin the contest-based portion of my anniversary celebrations.
