Sharing music
    #11175880 - 10/03/09 05:53 PM (8 years, 21 days ago)

I started posting on another forum lately on a site dedicated to sharing music.
Along with this there are, of course, a bunch of audiophiles and music snobs. I quickly learned that many of them are very against sharing their library with people. I don't mean torrents or direct upload/download sites, I mean letting someone plug into their external HD to drag and drop shit.

Some of them won't do it at all, some will only share a few things. The next biggest complaint is after they give people their music those people transcode from one format (usually FLAC or V0 aka large sized files with good quality) to smaller, less quality files.

It really makes me laugh reading about some people get so pissed about it.

So are any of you hesitant or stingy when someone wants your music?

No, thats completely ridiculous.  Especially considering I didnt make one damn song on my whole collection.

Yeah that's another one I don't get, using music like money.

Maybe if I didn't enjoy any of the music I downloaded I'd understand only trading it, but I would be downloading this shit regardless of sharing it with others.

I'd have reservations with some stranger poking around in my computer.

Otherwise I don't get it.

Yeah thats kinda selfish, considering most people didnt pay for a penny of that music. And more importantly, WHY NOT SHARE?? I mean no one just discovers all great music themselves, many are by recommendation. Spread the love..Turn others on the the Light!!

BTW.. I have like 220 gigs of music, and i love discovering new artists and enlightening others... Whats the same of this music shareing board you speak of?... Id really liek to check it out... Thanks..Ryan

It's quite appalling when people don't take time and effort to find their own music.




I dislike being around a lot of people.....having my playlist going......and some fucktard that loves nickelback just HAS to get everything off my comp.......


I don't want anyone messing around with my laptop while out and about......too risky......so then I'm apt to either

A. Take time out of whatever social setting I'm in to hook em up and click and drag whatever I think they'll like

Or

B. Have them pester me online for weeks on end for an album they like




Typically these re the same people......That don't try to find new music......lsiten to stale crap.......and when they do find new music don't give two shits about sharing it with others.



I'm not going to support people laziness.......and in no way think I should struggle my ass off for people who can't make the slightest bit of effort.




However, if you are a really good friend......I know you strive to hear new music......or I hate you sooooo much that I just want to get you away.......I'll give ya whatever you want :smile:

I remember talking to an underground hip-hop head online about music who absolutely refused to share information about the artists he liked and the places he found his music. Apparently he wanted to keep it "underground".

When someone wants my music, I'm flattered and only too happy to give them what they want. I love when someone says, "Who is that? They're good."

I find it annoying when people who obviously don't share the same passion for music as you, want to.....plain and simple.....leech from you.


I think everyone should strive to find new music......share with me, and I'll share with you.





With something like hip hop........If you don't want it to be prententious crap.....it's gotta stay underground.

Anyone can plug in their HD and take all my music anytime.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
