it is literally better to just steal music. Seriously. Just steal it.
If you can't bear to live without having infinite access to every music you could possibly want, you're not a music fan, you're an addict. You're addicted to consumer convenience. You're addicted to the entitlement to have everything at your disposal and you're ignoring the very, very real cost of that convenience. It's not worth it.
wdym @Mainebot i have access to every music i can possibly want and i don’t subscribe to a streaming service
@Mainebot sometimes its the *only* way I can get it (I like a lot of 80s Eurodisco that was only released on limited edition 12" singles (maxis) and the labels (even if still in business) aren't even interested in re-releasing those in digital form, the only copies that exist online are vinyl rips from YouTube (which I convert to MP3 to listen to in the car)
