Piracy – Karaoke – Conviviality
Sweet 16 Winter Wonderland Edition

By now you’ve probably heard about the SonyBMG rootkit? The one that installs a destructive exploit on your computer if you foolishly try to listen to one of their CDs? At Swap Meet, we applaud this multinational media conglomerate in their valiant attempt to protect us from their horrible music. They’ve already wiped out billions in profits and ruined their reputation, all just to free the world from the banal tyranny of corporate pabulum. Kudos, Sony!
In the spirit of giving, Swap Meet will also install a rootkit deep into your system… a rootkit of FUNK !
- Your singin’ voice & dancin’ shoes
- a flash drive / CD / MP3 player containing your favorite filez
- An inner sense of joy in the face of our eroding cultural freedoms
Here’s the House karaoke list (at Superbunker). If something you’d like to sing is not on the list, you are welcome — nay, encouraged! — to bring your own hand-crafted .KAR files. They’re MIDI-tastic!
About Swap Meet
You won’t be able to grab the entire Led Zep discography at Swap Meet and be on your way — that?s what what the Department of Defense invented the Internet for.
Swap Meet is a place for you to come with a special selection of your very most bestest most favoritest music so you can trade it with other actual human people for the special music that you?ve always wanted but didn?t know existed. It?s like social software, but replacing “software” with “beer”.
And then we sing!
According to recent legal decisions, inducing anyone to use physical space for the purpose of sharing music may render the space-time continuum illegal. Use the space-time continuum at your own risk.
