Something charles said recently got me thinking: when did I last buy a CD? I couldn't remember so I went ratting through my collection to find my most recent purchase. That was a Best Of The Church compilation CD dated 1999. Before that I bought DeRigeurmortis (This Is Serious Mum), Wasp Star (XTC), Jabbawocky (Oliver Wakeman), the soundtrack from The Dish, and Running With Scissors (Weird Al). They all date 1999/2000.

I have not bought anything by a new artist or group. The RIAA and ARIA and the major labels have lost my business, not because I use P2P to download my music, but because everything I hear in the top 40 is crap. And I am even less inclined to buy a crippled disc masquerading as a music CD.
