Awesome things: #8
Weather outside today! Incredible. I see clouds to the south and north, but here in cambridge, it's just awesome.

Interesting, a volleyball team is practicing in the outdoor park next to my walk home. I don't think i can remember seeing outdoor volleyball practice other than on the beach.

I love the town where i live. I really need to get out and take pictures at some point soon. Trees are blooming all throughout cambridgeport, and it's damn pretty.
Also, downloaded the new nin album from their website today: CC licensed, and released directly by the band/trent. I like it (though less than some of their older stuff), but i wonder where the money is in that... Radio stations? Touring? And don't most artists sell their souls to record companies early on? Why can nin release cc licensed music?

The houses in my neighborhood are so charmingly eclectic. One day, when i win the lottery, i want to own a big eclectic house in this area or another like it.

Assuming that they did what Radiohead did, they'll probably release a physical CD later, and it will sell. In Rainbows did.

Also, Neil Gaiman was talking about it in his blog -- giving things away for free. He had a digital copy of American Gods up on his website a couple months ago, and he said that if people read it and enjoyed it for free, they're likely to either pick up a physical copy for themselves or buy more of his books.

So I'm sure they'll get money out of it somehow.
