Champions of Red Wine

The New Pornographers

Champions Of Red Wine - The New Pornographers - Brill Bruisers

The New Pornographers new release is terrific, as I expected.  So much good stuff.  This Neko Case track sounds like something from early 80’s ELO.

Many e-books are being released at $14.99 and even $19.99. That is unjustifiably high for an e-book. With an e-book, there’s no printing, no over-printing, no need to forecast, no returns, no lost sales due to out-of-stock, no warehousing costs, no transportation costs, and there is no secondary market — e-books cannot be resold as used books. E-books can be and should be less expensive.

It’s also important to understand that e-books are highly price-elastic. This means that when the price goes up, customers buy much less. We’ve quantified the price elasticity of e-books from repeated measurements across many titles. For every copy an e-book would sell at $14.99, it would sell 1.74 copies if priced at $9.99.

Amazon taking on Hachette with some data.

All I know is that I get pissed off every time I see a Kindle book that costs more than hardcopy … and it happens a lot.

I asked him for his photo. He stared at me for a few seconds, then felt my forehead with the back of his hand, then stared at me for a few more seconds, then said: “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
