… is being closed down?


RIP, I only wish I could have known you better. The used to be secret spot for downloading full quality music at your quality of choice without the hassle of DRM has finally succumb to its own popularity, as Russia has finally agreed to the US’s (RIAA’s) demands to shut it down. Though I must say I knew at some point that it would get shut down (if it seems too good to be true…), but I was actually surprised by how long they managed to stay in business. Even with this latest nail in the coffin, they still stand by their statement that what they are doing is not illegal (though I don’t think it will help much at this point). If only the record labels would have learned a lesson from AllofMP3’s popularity, instead of spending all of their time trying to shut it down, we might finally have a music download system that makes sense (and dollars) in the US. Oh well, I guess it’s back to P2P networks then until the record companies can figure things out. Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me.

…Benny Benassi want to sell you a power drill?

Benny Benassi is well known for his music videos, probably more than he is for the music itself. In his video for Satisfaction, a few scantily clad well-endowed women are demoing power tools in a late night infomercial style setting. If you’re not a fan of techno, this may just be the best reason yet to start. Warning: Definitely NSFW
