This just surpassed the entire accumulation of the first bundle within 12 hours. This alone has allowed sales of Psychonauts to double.

So PayPal fucked up and double-charged me $15, for which I got two bundle keys.  I asked them if they'd let me use the second one as a gift because I really don't feel like taking the money back.

Still waiting on a reply (they might have to in order to not fuck up the transaction numbers), but if they're okay with it, is anyone unable or for some stupid reason unwilling to pay the $7.49 for the whole bundle?

My favourite part is notch bid $3,000.01 so he'd be the top contributor because before he did that, it was HumbleBronyBundle, which is a collective for Brony Awareness that sets out to raise money to buy one copy of the Humble Bundle to show how generous bronies are.

I don't know why I ever by PC games. They'll always just be in bundles down the road.

The bronies have since bid another 2 cents.

They confirmed that it's perfectly acceptable and you can even change the listed owner on your package at any time.  I guess there's not much point in handwringing about sharing when you're selling 1-cent products with no DRM.

For my part, I can technically say I gave them more than the bottom radio button on the suggested donations list at least.

Yeah, when I spent $50 on the original bundle I did it with the intention of sharing a few copies with friends.

Man, I've already got all of these games. And so does virtually everybody I know who'd be interested in them. If I hadn't already sprung for the Bastion soundtrack on Steam I'd do it.

I don't think you need to feel too bad about paying the full collective price of $110 instead of the bullshit $15-and-that's-way-above-average I did.

Uh.

Okay, so the Humble Music Bundle is a fantastic idea, but the thing is... don't all these people have contracts?  I guess they did actually drop the word "Indie" from the name there, but still.

Not sure if want.

I don't know about the rest but I'm almost certain TMBG own the full digital rights to their music.

The Christopher Tin album includes this, for the record
Christopher Tin - Baba Yetu (Official Music Video)

That alone makes it worth it.

There's some worthwhile discussion over at BB.

To my question on RIAA affiliation, someone responds:

Quote
I don't think any of these bands and artists have any involvement with RIAA affiliated labels anymore.  I know TMBG has been independent since they left Elektra in the 90s, and JoCo and Frontalot have always been independent.  It looks like OK Go has released albums through Capitol Records but now they have they're own independent label, and it looks like Christopher Tin is self-published as well.  The Valkyria Chronicles music comes from games published by SEGA.

Unverified; I'll keep looking into it.

And somebody else says:

Quote
Whenever I talk to people requesting a Humble Music Bundle, I tell them that Bandcamp (http://bandcamp.com/) does this every day, because that's their business model.

It just takes a little bit of digital bin-digging.

So far as I can tell:

Pretty sure I'm right on TMBG; the physical copies of their albums are pressed and distributed by an RIAA affiliate but they have full ownership of digital versions.

MC Frontalot doesn't appear to have ever been affiliated with an RIAA label.  Neither do Christopher Tin or Jonathan Coulton.

OK Go used to be with Capitol but formed its own label in 2010.

That leaves Valkyria Chronicles.  Wikipedia lists Sega as an RIAA affiliate but the RIAA site doesn't; the Best Of compilation appears to have been put together specifically for this bundle, and I don't think there's been any other soundtrack release in the States, so I don't think the RIAA's involved on that one but I'm not 100%.

So I THINK everything is in fact good and indie.  But it would sure be easier if the Bundle page included all that info!

The Humble Bundle for Android just added a few new games such as Edge and Wold of Goo to the 5 or so games it already had.

Pretty nice bundle for a phone/tablet, I'd say.
