It was so easy to get mad at Lars Ulrich because he seemed like such a backwards thinking weenie every time he talked about downloading music. He was also a gazillionbilliontrillionaire with not great songs. But Ghostface sounds (rightfully?) downtrodden. It's a complicated issue of nebulous bit rates and Limewired jam-dealies but not so nebulous is Ghost sitting in a chair wearing a hat with earflaps asking you to buy, not download, his music. He promises you can "Goose it up" with him if you just show him the CD you bought, says he will take a personal meeting, and that has got to be worth it.
