How do you get your music?

Spinning off a comment I just made in anastasiav's LJ:

So I'm curious. The Internet has all these fancy options for obtaining music nowadays. There are iTunes and its ilk, which let you buy music pretty traditionally, but do it as track-by-track MP3 downloads and typically a bit cheaper than in traditional CD format. There are services like Rhapsody, which think of themselves mainly as lending libraries -- you pay ten bucks a month, or something like that, and get access to hundreds of thousands of tracks so long as you keep paying. There are online stores that sell traditional discs (CDBaby being my current favorite). There is individual file-swapping, via a host of peer-to-peer systems. There are probably other models.

Given that my friends tend to be pretty Internet-hardcore, I was wondering: what do you do? Which of the above services do you use, and why? Do you still buy much or all of your music at brick-and-mortar stores? I've used all of the above at least some, and I'm curious whether other peoples' reactions are similar to mine...
