    It's Like This

    You know I'm old and I like the old rockers music but just like when I listened to em in the 60's 70's and 80'd I ignored their views then as I do now case in point I was channel surfing the other night ran across an interview with Gene Simmons and watched just long enough to hear him say "If you listen to my music without paying for it I'll come take your house your kitty and everything else you own" I then switched to The Three Stooges I found them to be more logical.

    Why the frak do you need to 'own' "SL?" Are you giving "X-Street SL" any shit?

    That's because Linden Labs owns X-Street SL

    Re: I think...

    Good point.It seems that law enforcement has this "Nail Em And Jail Em All" attitude it's all black and white there is no common sence used now days.I mean come on now a grandmother making meth? give me a break come on use your noodle.I'm sure with just a small effort from the cops they could have figured this one out.

    I have a friend that is a cop and he was whining to me that no one ever calls them for domestic squabbles anymore. And I told that's because when you guys show up somebody always has to go to jail and it ends up costing em a whole bunch of money that they probably don't have instead of sitting em down and working out the problem(which is what you used to do)

    I am in second life and I have a club there and I bought a zyngo machine from a friend and the guy that built the machine some how found out i had it threat to sue me i said goahead and i never heard anything else from him.I hope Linden labs when this ( which I think they will) maybe it will shut up these whiney copyright wimps. Seems like everywhere you turn somebody in there is screaming copyright infringment.

    "Or the increase in classic rocker record sales after they are experienced through this new media, helping a new generation connect with the music that came before them.. I guess none of these creaking old billionaires really care about all that.."

    I agree with that, At the classic rock station where I work we noticed a big jump In calls from young kids. Took us a bit to connect the dots but it was just after "guitar hero" was released and most of the songs they requested were songs on the game. I just think the old farts are getting crabby in their old age, I see it as good thing that they are enjoying the classics.

    I wouldn't worry to much about this

    I drive a Semi truck and have a laptop mounted on the dash (kind like the police do)I run GRLevel three doppler radar to monitor weather and road conditions via WiFi. I also run OTS AV DJ software with about 5 thousand songs with the audio patched into the stereo.I cross the border into Canada and back into the U S on an average of 6 times a week have been doing so for years and I have never had a border guard give me a second look with the exception of one time when a young female guard noticed the music it was playing and thought it was neat and was impressed that an old fart like me was running such a setup. So I wouldn't worry to much, this is just another "Feel Good" thing the government is doing to make you think they are watching out for our best intrest. Like one of the posters stated above if they mess with you they have you flagged for something else and it's a way to screw with you further.
