Just a reminder, the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows is going to be released tomorrow as a download. The album will come as a 48.8MB zip file which will contain 10 new songs in MP3 format (160kbps). The album doesn’t have a price, YOU price it. Basically you decide how much you want to pay for the album. I figured $10 is fair so thats what I paid, tomorrow morning once the album gets released I will get a code by email which will allow me to download the album. Can’t wait… [Link]
update: I downloaded the album today morning and I’m currently listening to it at work!
I just checked out Amazon’s MP3 store and it turns out it works with Macs, iTunes and my iPod! The prices of the songs are cheaper than the iTunes store plus they are DRM free. You can try it out by visiting amazonmp3.com
Update: Ok now I am pissed, just tried buying a song and I got the following message:
We are sorry…
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Update 2: Ok I just tried it again and it worked. I had my primary address my UK mailbox for some reason so I changed it to my US address and it worked. I just purchased my first song and I am currently downloading it! You do not need a American credit card, I used my NBK one.
Update 3: Finished downloading. The tiny Amazon software automatically added it to my iTunes and the song included a high resolution album art cover. Purchasing this song was just tooo easy so I am kinda worried now that this is going to be addictive.
War Stories by UNKLE is the album of the year. My favorite song is number 7, Burn My Shadow. It fucking rocks. This album is wayyy better then anything I have recently heard including Smashing Pumpkin’s Zeitgeist. [Amazon]
Late May I purchased two tickets to the Nine Inch Nails and Foo Fighters concert in Dublin and surprisingly today I received the tickets in regular mail! I had emailed Ticketmaster telling them specifically NOT to mail me the tickets because I was sure they would get lost in the mail. Magically they arrived to my mailbox and not only that, the tickets arrived before the concert date. The Kuwait postal service must have gotten a makeover.
update: My tickets were mailed out on June 12, they arrived to my PO Box on June 20th. One week from Ireland to Kuwait, thats really good.
