Getting Music Online - Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Does your music collection need an oil change? It does if you're still buying trunk loads of CDs, since they're made from petroleum-based plastic. But you can download almost any song you wanna hear, often for free (legally, even), making CDs pretty much obsolete. Filter that.
- Rockin' the auto body shop. There's more music on the Internet than any music store could hold, plus sites such as Pandora make it easy (and free) to hear music you like anywhere there's an Internet connection.
- More oil for lubing. CDs are made from petroleum-based polycarbonate, and oil is a finite resource.
- Avoiding inflated prices. Like that sketchy mechanic who charges you up the wazoo, CDs cost more. (The average price of a CD is $18; most albums cost $10 on iTunes.)
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: I stopped buying CDs over 10 years ago. That being said, my collection is very limited as it is- I've only purchased CDs of musicians I really love and want to support. My mp3 collection is enormous, mostly from free & legal sites or sharing other people's music. I know the audio quality is nowhere near what it should be, but if I can't hear live music or carry vinyl with me on long trips, mp3s are better than nothing. Also, I LOVE Pandora Internet Radio, I listen to it all day at work, and Renewable Choice even has our own account, check us out: Renewable Choice on Pandora. Rock on! ~Jen
