    What are ya'lls views on downloading music from the internet and then burning your own music cd's? Good? Bad? Do it? Bad, but still do it? I know they just had this whole deal on Napster and all, but there is no way they will be able to stop all of the mp3 trading.

    I think the lead singer from the Foo Fighters (Dave whatshisname) summed it up well on Dennis Miller.

    He basicly said if you're some garage band and have never had a record deal, he can sympathize if your music is all over the web for free and you can't make any money. But if you've sold 8 million records and you're b#tching about literally pennies.....F*** You Lars.

      That's a good point.

      While we were in Atlanta, GA for the Explorer National Competition last year, we went to tour the CNN building (that's a huge @$$ building). Somehow, we were offered free tickets for our whole post to be on CNN Talk Back Live. Basically, it's a national program that was about to air live right there. We pretty much got front row seats, and can you guess what the topic was? You got it, Napster.

      So that was pretty cool, me and several other of our explorers got on tv, plus we got to debate the issue. So now I can say "I had a part in it." Lol.

        I think what Metallica has done to Napster is a CROCK of S*@T!

        I went out and bought a brand new Compaq with a CD-RW drive specifically to make my own cd's, now thanks to Lars and the rest of the bunch I cant find hardly anything worth downloading. The Rolling Stones, Guns and Roses, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd and even Lynryd Skynrd are gone! I just wish the recording industry and Napster would reach some kind of agreement so I can start downloading again, I am willing to pay even though the idea of handing my money over to the recording industry really turns my stomach.

          Since I deleted well over 600 of my music files, wouldn't make sense for me to buy a CD burner. So much for McAfee's Quick Clean program...I think I cleaned a little too well.

          Now if only I hadn't procrastinated about getting the burner, I'd have oodles more cd's to add to my collection. Oh well, next time.

            SpecOps - There ARE other programs now Try one called Bearshare, you can download it from http://www.download.com


            And as for burning CD's.. I had a collection of about 15 CD's that I loved, in my car once and it was broken into and all the CD's were stolen. Ever since then, I burn all my CD's.

              Well ol' Dave Whatshisname Foo Fighter can't speak for ALL garage bands. Being in one, I think it would be cool to have our music played on the internet & use it as a way of spreading the word rather than making the buck. The buck would come later if people heard it & liked it.

                Most artists make their money going on tour anyway. But what about the guy who synthesizes his music on his computer adding layers with software? He can't go on tour. So his only revenue stream is selling CDs.

                As much as I wish all music was free, it still is someone else's property.

                  I think his point was more that Lars and Metallica have made truckloads of money and they are just being greedy.

                    Hey, SpecOps(and anyone else interested). Try using one key word for your searches or make a misspelling. Basically, try different variations to trick the filters.

                    I've got over 500 songs on Napster, including two from Metallica(up yours, Lars!). I see nothing wrong with downloading and burning for YOUR OWN USE AND BENEFIT. Once you start selling your CD's, then I have a problem with it. Before the computer age, me and my buddies did that all the time. We'd get new albums(yes, the big vinyl scratchy sounding things) and make copies for each other.

                        I guess I am just confused as to why they made such a big deal out of it. People have been taping songs off of the radio for quite a while now and no one causes a stink about that. As long as they aren't selling them, no big deal. As long as their are people out there that don't want to take the time to tape it...or don't own a CD burner they will still make their money.

                            Well, I was also tired of buying a CD and having only 1-2 good songs out of 15. Perhaps if all 15 songs were good and not just filler music, I might be tempted to buy CD's commercially more. But till then, I like being able to make CD's of the music I like.

                              Thank you Raychel, I will give it a try.

                              "Hey, SpecOps(and anyone else interested). Try using one key word for your searches or make a misspelling. Basically, try different variations to trick the filters"

                              One thing I have been doing lately is surfing in Napsters chat rooms and browsing other peoples music files so I can see how some of the spellings have been altered. Last week I was searching for "ONE" by Metallica and found a spelling for Methaica and the title "ONEE" .

                              Did you get a message from Napster stating that the newest version is going to be required to continue downloading? According to Napster the new version is supposed to have better filters to eliminate the misspellings.
