Juliana Hatfield Free

Stereogum fave Juliana Hatfield is giving her “honor system” download experiment another shot.

Hi. I am putting up some more new/old recordings, for your listening pleasure. First, I just want to say thank you again to all who have contributed and continue to contribute to this ongoing downloading project. You are helping to finance my future musical projects.

About the honor system:

“When a song is downloaded, you will have an option. You can decide that ownership of this song is your right and freely distribute the files to your friends and to the people who also think it’s their right, without payment. Or, you can support the artist who wrote and recorded this song and click the PayPal button at the top of the page and send Juliana a contribution. The iTunes standard of $.99 per song may seem too high for you, in which case you can send $.50 – though there is virtually nothing else you can buy legally for $.50. Alternatively, you can think of the number of people with whom you might share these files and give a multiple of $.99 for each song you download.”

I just wanna give her $500 for Only Everything. But $.99/song will do.

Incidentally, this crazy spam was sent to Temporary Residence today…

Who would write such a thing? I’d say Kevin Dean, but it appears English isn’t this spammer’s first language.

Jewliana, who’s out to get you? Or are you working with Mel Gibson now?
