Walking across campus the other day there were three guys handing out what seemed to be 20 boxes of this book&cd package.
I opened it today to figure out Maria Taylor did vocals on this concept album of sorts.
Upon trying to figure out what's up with it, I visited amazon to see if they were giving away an album that has obvious worth. I found it, yet theres a ton going for next to nothing. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0061AHHE0/absolutepunk-20/ r=8-1
It made me question the way things are valued to our society, as it seems Maria Taylor's collaborations on Bright Eyes records are pretty respected. [at least I've always liked her input on the songs.]
These dudes were giving away something of obvious value, and to think it will be worth close to nothing and/or tossed into a pile or possibly even the trash weirds me out. I'm giving the cd itself a listen prior to listening to the book, and the musics pretty relaxing which is always a plus for a free album.
Anybody have any thoughts on this sort of thing? Anybody ever hear about this book/album project?
