- This BS of what's too much and what's too little to charge for a
Boredoms release has got to STOP NOW! It's getting really old.
If it's too rich for your blood you don't buy it! If you want it bad
enough and you can afford it, you do! END OF STORY! Who cares how
much somebody is asking. GET OFF IT ALREADY!

also, as far as being "self-righteous" is concerned, i'd rather be that than a straight up swindler. i'd also rather make a big stink about inflated prices than simply succumb to the idea that only people with enough financial funds are going to be able to purchase music from a band that i wish the whole world had the chance to experience. nothing sucks more than when a truly great band doesn't get the recognition that they deserve because enough people aren't either getting the chance to hear it or are able to obtain it.
boredoms are not going to get played on the radio anytime soon and if their sporadic rate of releases continues the way it has in the past few years, the only way that future generations will be able to find out about them will be word of mouth or the internet. i'm not going to get into a debate regarding how the actual music might be obtained (i.e. a physical cd, an MP3, etc.), but i would and will get into a debate regarding the casual fan's future plight in obtaining the music.
let's face the facts: all of us started out at one point as nothing more than a completely regular fan of the boredoms. i would be hardpressed to believe that the first boredoms album that a potential newbie bore fan would be going after is going to be the VCN boxset or the super roots 2 mini cd.
if only seasoned, die-hard, anal-retentive record collectors have access to the harder to find stuff, where does that leave the regular guy on the street who has only heard POP TATARI or SUPER AR and wants to hear something else?
i say more bore for the people! call me whatever you want, i'm fighting the good fight!
