Another one bites the dust

So the musical incarnation of the great barbeque bods blog is at last kaput -- bod was part of a somewhat undergroundish movement amongt bloggers to share old (mostly) out-of-print vinyl through the avenue of digital technology. His departure is a shame (and perhaps an early warning that the whole scene is going to collapse soon, thanks no doubt to the ever vigilant, ever pricky RIAA). But it also points to one of the paradoxes of the "digital age": when at last you can have access to all the music you ever wanted, who the fuck has time to listen to it? Check out the comments on bod's April 1 post (especially the string that starts with blip) for a brief discussion...
