Look, I remember getting No More Tears when it was new and I was in college, and, uh, 30 years that doesn't make any sense. Because that'd make me not young, but The Old, and I'm clearly not The Old.
Some mechanical music, mostly more optimistic than usual. Got a long week ahead, try to make it thru.
So, I was listening to my last playlist, and realized I don't own one of the albums, so I figure I'll grab it off iTunes…
No iTunes app. No "show in iTune Store" action on the album page (Share has since shown back up, because Apple Music is non-deterministic). There's an iTunes Store on my phone, but I want to download it here on my desktop. Fine, where's the store page. It's… missing. After some duck searches, turns out you have to open Apple Music Preferences, check "iTunes Store" in a little grid. I didn't deselect this, it came deselected, meaning NOBODY is going to see it.
Once that's done, Store is back in the sidebar, and clicking it shows the good old storefront, account links, etc. But how do you search? Search box just shows Apple Music (streaming). WAAAAAY up in the top-right corner is a selector for Songs or Store. Now I'm on the album. And it's $8.99. Yeah, there's no DRM, but you know, I can get this elsewhere.
So I went over to 'zon and bought a used CD (a little cheaper), because I can rip that lossless. At least they want my money.
And like that, with no announcement, Apple killed their store.
New InfoSoc! And Bandcamp gives all money to the artist on Friday, so today's the day to buy it.
Got my second shot. I am now immune to all your Earth diseases. I can chew broken glass and fart out vacuum tubes. I can see things no-one else can see. Do things no-one else can do. I will haunt your planet forever.
You've worked hard, you deserve a chill-out.
