                        NOTE FROM KRISTIAN:

          Even though the lowly CD now costs less than
         a dollar to manufacture, they are still priced
              at $12-16, the same as 15 years ago...

           The Top 9 Reasons That CDs Are So Expensive

 9. Lawyers for P. Diddy, Eminem, Whitney...

 8. Big record companies can charge whatever they want! It's not
    like the public can get music for free off the Internet or

 7. Frisbee royalties.

 6. Aging music execs spending tens of thousands on chest-hair

 5. The price of the raw materials -- namely, Christian babies --
    has skyrocketed.

 4. Trying to get a round product into square packaging? C'mon,
    it's the oldest manufacturing puzzle in the book!

 3. The damn underbody rust-protection coating that they tack on.

 2. All that plastic overwrap and shredding security tape that
    takes 30 minutes to remove, that stuff's not free, you know.

    and the Number 1 Reason That CDs Are So Expensive...

 1. Cheap supply of Guatemalan 1's not enough to offset pricey 0's
    harvested in New Zealand.
