So I guess as an oblique response to my post from a few days ago I’d like to comment ever so briefly on Trent Reznor’s success at disempowering record labels. The crazy thing about Trent’s little business plan is that he has offered a number of tiered packages: you can get the first nine (chuckle) songs for free, buy all the tracks for $5, and the deal goes up from there. I marvel at the fact that Reznor sold out the most expensive package, the $300 shabalam, comprised of booklets, photo albums, CD’s and maybe a back massage. This merchandise package seems super cool, if you are super into Nine Inch Nails, and not just at the “superficial” level of their music.
