today was is a good day

OMG OMG OMG! i just read the following on alex gardenhead's journal:

"UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, World's Largest Music Company, DRAMATICALLY REDUCES CD PRICES. That's right-- one of the five major label groups announced a plan yesterday to lower the list price of most top-line CD's to a jaw-dropping $12.98, effective as early as October 1st. Wholesale prices will be decreased as much as 30 percent, effectively reducing the end price of many discs to between $10 and $12 at many retail outlets."

also, i get to hang out with two of my favorite boys today! alex and dan immediatetongue! today is a good day.

Current Mood: ooh, ooh
Current Music: iron & wine - promise what you will

i don't think this move is meant to stop people from downloading music (nothing can stop that, really) so much as it's a way to entice people to start buying more music, more often. the holiday season is coming up--traditionally a time when the music industry does most of its yearly business--so they're just trying to make sure that they can close the year strong.

the good news is that with universal making this move, it'll probably mean that the other majors will have to follow suit. in the end, the consumer wins. yay.

seems like it could really hurt smallish, independent music stores though.

actually, it would really help us if it was cheaper to order from distributors, which this WILL help! so, YEAh!

Wednesday! Nice! We'll have to meet up for a drink or something.

Did you find a job?

I'll be at the Rainer Maria show as I heard Denali is opening. If they're not, however, I won't be there.

burningblack said i should add you as a friend. so i did, and hopefully you will too. she thinks we'd get along because we both like "gay" music (which means twee to her i guess)
