i love the dune references that show up from time to time, even better when they quickly get glossed over
I remember your Gom Jabbar, now you remember mine!
Anyhoo, great episode - loved the bit about dating at the end. Poignant stuff that needs to be said. I wish someone had told that to me when I was younger!
I'd also like to add that the piracy argument is kinda dated and need not be so divisive; hell, MaxFun, itself, is a perfect example about how in the new media era, one gives away free, good content to build up a loyal following who will then buy something from you or even donate, (like I do every month and will be increasing next month!) If someone downloads your music and likes it, chances are that unless they are complete assholes or broke, they will give you money at some point down the road. Shit, look at Lil Wayne - he put out a zillion mixtapes and now he's the biggest rapper on Earth!
