Copy, Right? Issues!

Idolator’s recent RIAA/Onion post reminded us of Charlie Anders’ sci-fi version of the situation taken to its logical limit in local magazine Skinny: How Regular People Thrive in San Francisco. Here’s the gist:

“‘As soon as I admitted that yeah, that ‘Pimp Your Bubba’ song wouldn't stop infesting my mind no matter how much good music I fed my ears, the woman went violent. She pulled out a badge and twisted my arm behind me. Steel cinched my wrists, turned me into a perp. ‘You have the right,’ she said.

In her car, she talked to me through a rusty mesh cordoning the back seat. ‘I'd put on the radio, but you might steal again.’

‘What have I done?’

‘Don't pretend. Your mental piracy is blatantly illegal.’”

Word. Charlie's brilliant. --Hiya Swanhuyser
