  1. it’s kinda wack that you’re making a point to highlight an indie record store and then linking everyone to a sale at Amazon. Sorta defeats the purpose of supporting the mom & pops.

  2. Good point, Scott. But is there not a link to Stinkweeds as well? People can pick where they want to buy. Anyway, shouldn’t we be celebrating the opportunity for people to BUY instead of STEAL?

  3. Sigh… it’s sad that this is the logic we have come to. I want the 90s back, when it was simply a matter of supporting independents over corporations, rather than commerce over theft.

  4. Oh please. Kevin is giving free publicity and a link to a (wonderful) independent Phoenix record store. So what if he also provides a link to Amazon? Some people would rather have an MP3 immediately than drive to the store. And most SMS readers don’t even live within driving distance of Stinkweeds.

    Stores like Stinkweeds will either succeed or they won’t. But pretending that MP3 can’t be bought legally on the Internet now isn’t much of a business plan.
