Apple recently introduced content Mastered for iTunes (MFiT) on the iTunes Music Store, but they certainly aren’t going out of their way to make it easy for consumers to identify which albums are part of the program and which aren’t. Originally they added an MFiT section where they advised users to “keep checking back as [they] add more music that is mastered specifically for...
In which Goti proves himself witty
Goti: It's not that I don't care. Contrary to popular belief, I don't wake up every morning with the mindset of offending anyone deliberately. I just have a slightly morbid sense of humor. Life (and death) is too serious not to take the time out to laugh at one, the other, or both once in a while.
Eric: "Contrary to popular belief, I don't wake up every morning with the mindset of offending anyone deliberately." Mind=blown. I actually--literally--imagine you waking up in the morning, looking at yourself in the mirror and psyching yourself up for a big day of being offensive: "What can I do today that tops yesterday?"
Goti: Nope. I wake up in the morning, kick all the hookers out, eat some dead babies for breakfast, floss my teeth with used sumo diapers and put on my pants one leg at a time just like everybody else.

MTV: 1, Dave Mustaine: 0
MTV Hive: Rick Perry claimed in a recent campaign ad that there's a war on Christianity. As an intelligent, seemingly non-crazy Christian, do you agree with him?
Dave Mustaine: I think there's enough evidence that shows there is some effort being made toward controlling religion.
MTV Hive: Could you give me an example?
Dave Mustaine: It's pretty clear that they're taking prayer out of school. It's been happening for a very long time. The very first schoolbook that was written had God all over it. I collect books and I have some really, really old schoolbooks, and God is mentioned on every single page. They're taking God out of the schools to dumb us down.
MTV Hive: I'm almost positive they're trying to have the opposite effect.
A Sober Second Thought to Bill C-10

I concur with the Canadian Bar Association’s views. As you are well aware, the Conservative government has been trying to push much of this legislation through both the House of Commons and the Senate for several...
