The Notebook v. 3.0
I am excited but skeptical of the quality of all the great titles and characters being brought to the big screen in the next couple years. Ghost Rider and The Hulk were stinkers though. The only thing that helped Electra was choosing Jennifer for the role. Thor, The Avengers, Captain America another Spider Man. Even some interest in the Green Lantern movie.

Dark Side of the Moon dropped 7 places this week, so it's at #145 on the Billboard Charts. Not bad, though. I hope more people keep buying it! LOL

Got bittern by some insects whilst tidying the garden, an even 10 on each leg, the size of a super large pea.

Its chart position probably isn't a very accurate indicator of how many new people are discovering the music, for two reasons. First, some people who owned the LP years ago may be only now purchasing the CD. Second, a large number of young people discovering new music today are downloading it, and not necessarily buying it.

I myself see little reason to buy an album made nearly forty years ago; the rationale for album sales is to support what the artist does financially, and this only applies if you're buying music that's been released in recent years. Buying music made in the 1970s does absolutely nothing to support what those artists were doing back then; if they're still doing it now, they'll still have album sales now, and if they're no longer active then there's no need to support their work.

Oh, Steve. You and your shocking rightness are the reasons I came back.
Call me a safe bet,
I'm betting I'm not.
I'm glad that you can forgive,
I'm only hoping as time goes
You can forget.

Oh Steve, you so consistently don't get it. Not everyone is happy with something they rip off from the internet and your rationale is extremely narrow-minded. Imagine what album sales could be if people couldn't steal music from the artists.

No offense, but this is ridiculous. I was born in 1982. By the time I was old enough to get an allowance and go buy things with that money, PF was no more. So when I got into the band and started collecting their work.....they weren't out there making more albums and touring. So by your rationale, I shouldn't have bought any of the vinyl albums/CDs that I did, because they weren't making anything at the time and buying the older stuff is just a waste.

I'm sorry, but I don't think so. How else is someone going to start collecting an artist's work that they like unless they buy it? I'm not going to download something I want to physically have. I like taking the vinyl out and putting it on my record player -- you can't do that with an mp3.

I support Pink Floyd because I'm a huge fan. Part of that is buying their back catalog. It's not going to make a hill of beans difference to them financially whether I do or I don't, but it means that there's another person out there listening to and loving their music, the same as someone was when the records first came out.

Have to agree with Electrophile, I still buy 'old' albums when recommened to me and for some weird reason it is very pleasing to listen to an album that is so good and yet so old that I somehow missed it. Surley music past is still for the younger.

Piracy is not theft. Theft removes the original. Piracy makes a copy. Not theft.

Sorry broseph, had to. :(

Good point, but it's still illegal and it's taking from the artist without their permission.
