You haven't forgotten about the boycott, have you? I should hope not. If you're having trouble not going out and buying discs from artists you like, why not save yourself some money and fulfill your little consumery desires at the same time? Buy used CDs.
There are tons of record stores out there with sizable used CD departments, full of gems that you wouldn't expect to find for so cheap. If you're too lazy to go to a physical store, there are plenty of places online to buy used CDs such as Prex and Spun. There, now you can buy your precious CDs without the RIAA getting any of your money.
