Sorry I didn't get around to posting this earlier, and sorry I'm posting it so late in the day (or night), but, just in case these aren't still available come morning, I figured I should tell you now that both Nine Inch Nails and The Offspring are offering free downloads today via their official web sites.
NIN's is a whole new album, which is yours simply in exchange for your email address.
With The Offspring, meanwhile, the cost is the same--an email address--but the payoff is just a new single. Which, maybe given Trent Reznor's prolific output of late, might be equal to a NIN album in supply-demand economics.
But I was no business major. --Pete Freedman

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
