In the case of my music, music is cheap (and so can be TV shows, naturally). I love hitting the flea markets and purchasing LP's and 8-tracks for 50¢ or $1. I've really wasted no money, and if I like what I hear, all the better. If not, crap on it, it can go to charity. I've actually been on YouTube this morning pulling up mp3 versions of some lesser quality tapes that needed repair work done. I own the music already, so I'm not breaking any copyright laws.
