Something Cool, Something Not : Media Companies, Barcelona & Scrofula

I just stumbled across this very cool video. Irrespective of how you feel about aquariums, you have to admit it is pretty.

I really liked the song and, since there was a link on the page, I decided to buy it. But of course, Apple and the record company have decided that they don't want to sell it to me because I live in the UK.

If this was the first time I'd had such a problem, I would write it off as an aberration. But it isn't, it happens all the time and it really pisses me off.

I don't know anything about the record companies business model, or the realities of life as an up-and-coming artist - but if your business plan involves artificial market segmentation to the point where people can't buy your products.. you deserve nothing but scorn, poverty and, if all my wishes came true, some sort of painful and inconvenient ( but not necessarily fatal disease. I don't know what Scrofulous is, but it sounded funny when Terry Pratchett used it, so, for now, I'm going to hope for that.

Barcelona, keep up the good work, I hope the Scrofula doesn't get in the way of your singing, nor the poverty and attendant malnourishment distract you from your musical endeavours. I'm sure that the scorn will only aid you in your artistic struggle.

If they won't take your freely offered money they can't accuse you of stealing. It is called a gift.
