COMPARTILHANDO COM OS AMIGOS

O Beltrão tem milhares de CD's ocupando um quarto inteiro, cheio de prateleiras, mais centenas de LP's de oito, dez e doze polegadas, fora as fitas cassette, sei lá.

Para mim a arte de colecionar discos é algo do século XX e um colecionador tem agora, no século XXI, o microcomputador como seu melhor aliado para poder disfrutar de toda a música que guarda nas estantes, sem sequer levantar-se da cadeira.

Com a enorme capacidade de armazenamento de hoje em dia, o Beltrão pôde compactar em MP3, sem perda de qualidade para um ouvido normal, os milhares de CD's e vinis utilizando um programa de computador que, facilmente, pode tocar em sequencia todas as gravações de "Autumn in Paris" ou "Sophisticated Lady", de centenas de interpretes, ou lhe dizer quantas composições de Duke Ellington ele possui.

Fora isso é só a diversão de pegar CD por CD, compactar no Hard Disk e catalogar no software. O futuro é isso aí, comparar as discotecas com os amigos em termos de Gigabytes ou até Terabytes.

Beltrão, assim que terminares de por tudo em MP3, estarei te mandando um Hard Disk de 500 Gigabytes para voce me copiar sua discografia - eu sei que tem coisa muito boa para se ouvir.

It's official, Verge is gone!

I'm not sure how many here were still buying from Verge, but they were a source of some real bargains over the years (maybe that's why they will no longer be with us?).

Here's the email I got, I hope Daniel doesn't mind me posting it.

Dear Verge Customer,

It is with great regret that we inform you that after nearly 15 years Verge Music must close its doors. Our situation has been very difficult over the last few years and we are very grateful for the support of our customers over the years.

On a happier note we are pleased to announce that Squidco will be taking over the domain and Verge customer base. Squidco will contact you for two reasons: 1) to welcome you to use their service and 2) if you have any backorders they will advise you on which items they can supply now and which they can source for you. Any backorders that cannot be sourced by Squidco will be forwarded to the labels. I would not like to see the labels whom need your support lose these sales! I hope you agree.

Please be advised that no sensitive data will be released to Squidco, only what is necessary to make contact with you. Your relationship with Squidco is voluntary and you can of course opt out at anytime. I would strongly encourage you to work with Squidco. They are a very similar company to Verge in that they are based on a strong love for the music, and like Verge are not just a business but also an advocate.

Verge has worked hard over the years to make a connection between customers and labels and artists. It would be a shame if that connection were broken. Labels and artists would suffer. So working with Squidco will honour the special relationship Verge has had with you and the labels and build on that for the future.

Finally I would just like to say that it has been a great pleasure to serve you over the years. Many of you I have gotten to know quite well and consider you friends. I will miss this contact that was often enlightening and fascinating. Even though money changed hands we interacted as a community of common interest. This music, which defies category and is hard to give a name to, depends upon a small alternative network that you are all a part of. Verge was only a small part of this. Please work with Squidco to continue supporting great music.

Sincerely,

Daniel Kernohan
