Well the discussion of whether playing music equates with work would be a different issue altogether, but when I'm paid for playing a gig I still think of it as working for a living.

You said you found some old envelopes you were going to throw away but looked inside and found money. You did not imply where it may have come from. I think that is the source of the confusion.

Yeah, basically the equivalent of finding a paycheck that never got cashed. Glad I didn't throw them away!

Re: Buying from Japan

On the topic of “buying from Japan,” Universal Music is using Japan as a test market for something called the MQA-CD. MQA is a high resolution audio format that adapts to the users playback system. If you have a CD player, you get CD quality audio. If you have a universal disc player that can playback anything, you will hear a recording at 32bit/384kHz assuming the master recording was made at that bit depth and sample rate. Anyways, Japan is the only country where these MQA-CD’s are available at the moment and I was curious if anyone living in Japan has heard of these or bought one? The MQA-CD is a niche product that is being tested in one market. I found out about it today by chance. MQA audio has been around for a few years, but never in a physical format.
