ex machina

they've already made the rounds, but i'm going to catalogue the recent spate of mp3/artist stories anyway.

first, the offspring decide, if you can't beat 'em - join 'em [with a twist]:
"Just as technology has made leaps and bounds over those last two years, plans for the download and release of Conspiracy Of One are significantly more sophisticated. Anyone who purchases the actual CD will have the opportunity to use proprietary new technology, located directly on the physical compact disc, to launch into a coded part of the band web site and become a member of The Offspring Nation. The Offspring Nation is a digital fan club offering incentives and benefits including subsequent exclusive downloads, animated films, gated chats with the artist, advance ticket sales and more. Dexter Holland says, "We decided that we would create a super fan club for those of our fans who actually buy our CD. The CD has a key in the CD-Extra section that registers members to The Offspring Nation, our fan club. We figure since we make our music available to everyone for free this will act as a special acknowledgement to our fans who go to the trouble to buy our CD.""
and courtney love decides she wants some of the bounty the recording industry has been extracting from"
"In the nine months since it filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against (MPPP), Universal Music Group has said over and over again that it is battling the online music portal to protect the financial interests of its legendary stable of performers. After it said as much in court papers, a federal judge ordered to pay Universal between $120 million and $250 million in damages on Sept. 6.

But Universal recording artists will never see a dime of that cash, one of the label's most prominent musicians, Courtney Love, now says. And so, the Grammy Award-winning singer says she will turn the tables on Universal and ask a court to fine the company for stealing her music. "

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
