Thanks! Web stats show I actually get a lot of visitors. Readers usually email me tho. Guess they don't want to go public with their love of this stuff - they'll never be able to run for public office.

Amazing stuff - keep on keepin' on.

Particularly love the track which shows how Coldplay nicked the riff from Kraftwerk, classic. Noone else seems to have noticed though, but you did.

A fan in Dubai - Middle East.

YOU think it (RIAA) is a cute band name.

I think it's the literal truth.

It's like being an abolitionist in a slave-owning society.

We will not stop until ALL IDEAS are free from oppression and commercial exploitation.

And before some fool starts whining "Bow down to Capital" - consider every stupid thing your employer ever required you to do. Those are what we will eliminate. Consider every useful creative idea you ever had but weren't allowed to implement. Those are what we will do instead.
