STEAL THIS ALBUM
I buy AIR - TALKIE WALKIE on CD..
I attempt to play AIR - TALKIE WALKIE on my PC..
the CD fails to play on my PC..
I look to the CD cover - "COPY CONTROLLED"..
cursing and swearing, I throw around some software, crash my computer 3 or 4 times..
I manage finally to play AIR - TALKIE WALKIE, a CD I freaking BOUGHT on MY pc..
yet it glitches ever so slightly on every song, to drive me completely to distraction..
hoping the source files are more stable, I try and copy the CD to my iriver MP3 player..
Audiocatalyst fails miserably, CDex manages to copy but leaves gaps at the 9 second mark..
I look thru countless forums of pissed off consumers, cursing their "COPY CONTROLLED CD's"..
looking for solutions..
many programs.. all downloaded.. all fail..
I curse and swear at the CD I freaking BOUGHT which will not play..
with an eye for revenge, I fire up SOULSEEK..
a search within seconds yields a flood of results..
I download album..
and now I'm happy :)
does anyone else find this ironic?
