Today's comic is the 666th Sam and Fuzzy website update ever! Creepy, huh?
I wish bands that I like would stop offering "exclusive bonus tracks" as rewards for downloading their entire albums on iTunes. Count me among the prehistoric listeners who still like to buy their music on plastic discs. It always bums me out when I have to miss out on an extra song because I'd rather buy a CD than a bunch of lower quality, DRM-crippled computer files.
If you could buy the bonus tracks individually, it wouldn't be a problem. But because they are "exclusively available" to folks who bought the entire albums on iTunes, all us CD buyers can't get them unless we feel like buying the entire album over again in download format. (Or pirating them. Arr!)
This didn't turn into a pet peeve for me until I found out it was happening with both the new Sloan and Barenaked Ladies albums. But now, now I am officially grumpy about it. I think I'm ready to become a crotchety old man who complains about the latest media formats and uses words like "newfangled."
