Just to reiterate a few points other folks have made.

Go buy King Crimson cds. Go to The DGM Diaries. An interesting perspective on the whole "stealing somebody elses music is or is not part of my human rights" debate.

However, I dont think pointing to King Crimson's "Club" releases as a model of an alternative business model for musicians is particularly realistic. King Crimson have an extremely loyal "cult" following. Not everybody can have half a dozen top notch world class virtuosos and 30 years of recording and touring before they expect to be able to survive.

Todays cd recomendation: "Audio" by Blue Man Group. Nice cd. Lots of invented instruments, included some detail on what the instruments look like and how they are constructed. See About the music for some online info about the cd.

The Scott McCloud books are extremely good. Just recently purchases and read "Understanding Comics" again. The first time I read it I just happened to pick up a friends copy, and continued to skip two classes to finish it in one sitting on first read. Good book. "Reinventing Comics" seems to be equally as good. And this from someone who does not read comics or anime.
