Paris Combo "Motifs"

Michael just lent me a french jazz cd. I'm having lots of fun translating it. This album has a very succinct feel to it. Either the band blends well togherher, or the album was highly sound processed. De façon générale je l'apprécie vraiment. (Overall i really enjoy it.)

He thinks i'm gonna rip it and keep a copy. But i respect the artist's copyright. Say what you want about RIAA and record labels; it's the artist who choose to copyright the music and i will respect their wishes.

The lyrics confused me at first. I'll write phoneticly.

je ne swee pah hie
je ne swee pah low
je ne swee pah in

I know "je ne swee pah" is really "Je ne suis pas" or "I am not". I'm thinking "high", "low", "in"? What are the chances there are three french words that can be used in this context, which sound so english. Well it turns out they really are english :)

I think i'll translate an entire song soon. After all i'll be returning the CD to Michael.

Damn You For Not Ripping

Perhaps if you had ripped it, I would be able to create a new copy since my copy now has scratches around the end of track 17. But besides that, what you should have done is made a copy then send some money directly to the artists and help support them in the best way possible.

But I respect the artist’s copyright. Say what you want about RIAA and record labels; it’s the artist who choose to copyright the music and i will respect their wishes.

That’s all fine and good. Too bad the artists lose all rights to their music when they sign up with a label under the RIAA umbrella. This isn’t about not compensating artists, this is about not giving money to an organization that obscenely screws artists, and lobbies to eliminate fair use and extend copyright to ridiculous measures.
