LEECH FREAK 5000
one of the coolest things about the internet, is, when you know where and how to look.. pretty much ANYTHING is up fer grabs.. it's a demented leecher's paradise.. of course, the bastard of it is, ya gotta know where to look.. and the "hunt" for these elusive files, is where the fun really is..
to begin with, I ran thru basic website channels to hoard me goodies (MP3's, Music Vids.. nifty creative software.. etc etc).. and sure, there's plently of shiny stuff to be found.. but, as has become more and more prevalent.. the WWW is becoming a big hulkin' corporate shopping mall beast.. if ya want anything, you better have a credit card number handy and be willing to empty your bank account over items you may actually never need.. with freeware programs disappearing faster n faster to be replaced by endless crippled shareware products that eat ya system resources and produce minimal results.. yup, the basic free-data exchange superhighways are now building toll bridges and great big fuck-off annoying advert billboards.. faster than you can say BILL GATES IS A COCK SMOKIN' TOILET VAMPIRE..
so.. for the last 6 months or so, I've been using WinMX.. and sure, it's a kickass program, a real file hoarder's paradise.. I've been hoardin' music vids and MP3's like there wuz no tomorrow.. but, once again.. the avenues are limited.. doing searches on one (more mainstream) artist would yield 1000's of results.. a search on another (more sought after yet indie) artist.. yields fuckall but tumbleweeds..
and once again, the mad search for files continues..
and now I'm onto using Kazaa Lite.. (cheers to G for the heads-up on this one..)
files I previously thought impossible to find, are now in abundance..
the real fun of this tho.. is the chase..
the elusive run-around to find the shit you want..
somewhat reminiscent of running around randomly thru record stores, trying to sniff out that impossible to find import CD of some crazed nutta those freaks you know in Holland are raving about (yet, funnily enough seem mysteriously absent from record stores here..)
and when you do find da candy.. OOOOHYEAAH..
