  • God it’s been hectic. I did BBC News at Ten, which, you’ll be pleased to hear, sold a ton of books. I just spent a week ill in bed. This thing I quickly dashed off last Sunday has somehow become the second most popular thing I have ever written anywhere (first is this, third is this). Friday’s 25% off Bitcoin sale was, I assure you, hilarious.

  1. I’m sure nobody outside of Apple will ever see it, but I’d love to compare the sales figures for new vs back-catalog over the same kind of period shown in the “killing iTunes Music Store” link. I SUSPECT we just getting over a decade of adoption of digital-only as an acceptable form to buy music in and that new sales (within a year of release or something) are probably at least keeping pace with all other forms of music sales. Gonna have to come up with another way to sell music if you need me to buy The White Album or Bark At The Moon again, and that may not be possible to really wrangle. It’s too bad the audiophool market is so small; vinyl records at least wear out over time, and ripping those to digital “ruins” the music.)

  2. no no! if you’re an audiophile, right, you get the vinyl, right, and rip it at 24/96, and pretend this is anything other than a 16/44 recording shittified through vinyl so you can get another 8 bits of perfect surface noise,
