Free Album MP3 Downloads: Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails & Others

Recently, I found more evidence that musicians and the recording industry are
moving towards an online model of selling and promoting music instead of
selling CD's in stores.

Two of the biggest bands in the world are offering their albums free for downloading.
(Note: all of the download links listed below are legal download promotions offered
by the artists mentioned below).

Coldplay is one of my favorite bands in the world. I last bought their excellent
CD "Viva la Vida: Or Death and all his Friends". Coldplay is also well-known
to be very appreciative of their fans. In their fan-friendly tradition,
Coldplay are offering their live album "Left Right Left Right Left",
for free downloading. Just go to http://www.coldplay.com/lrlrl/lr.html
This is a pretty good compilation of live recorded songs and it contains
live versions of classic such as "Clocks" and "Viva la Vida".

The other uber-popular band, Nine Inch Nails, is making their current cd
"The Slip" available for free download for an indefinite period.
Just download the album at http://theslip.nin.com/
I love the raw sound of NIN and 2 of my favourite tracks on this cd include
Demon Seed and Discipline.

If you're into more rock-oriented sounds, Chris Cornell
(of Audioslave and Soundgarden fame)
also has put out a track (called "Long Gone") for free download.
Just go to

With the plethora of free promotional downloads from bands, we have more evidence
that the music industry is addressing the piracy problem and starting to respond to
fans' needs to get their music online. In return, the artists are making money through
online promotions and online advertising revenue.

Pizza Hut Coupons: All You Can Eat Lunch Coupon for $5

Pizza Hut has some great coupons to help you through the recession. The coupon
lets you have All-You-Can-Eat Lunch Buffet for $5 (the regular price for their
all you can eat buffet is $7.99). Other coupons include
a Carryout special for 2 medium pizzas for $10.99. Or you can geta medium "Any Way You
Want It" pizza for $11.99. You can print the coupons at

The last time I visited Pizza Hut was when I was in China in February so
I will use these coupons to try a Pizza Hut in North America.
I have to say that the Pizza Huts in China seem much cleaner and tidier than the
Pizza Hut restaurants in the U.S. and in Canada. Also, the Chinese Pizza Huts have some dishes that are catered to local Chinese tastes. For example, the smoothies include green tea flavour and the salad bars are very well-decorated.
