I like to think of myself as tech savvy. Maybe I should say tech savvy-ish because there are huge gaps in my knowledge.
I downloaded music for the first time today. Six songs. Six bucks.
What Can I Do? - Antony
I Will Internalize - Martha Wainwright
You Are The Everything - REM
Gotta Have You - The Weepies
In My Arms - Teddy Thomson
Starlight _ The Wailin Jennys
I'm enjoying them. We got a MP3 player when we finished an expansion pack. I used it sometimes but I like having my ears open. I can put them in my Blackberry, which I sometimes listen to when I'm doing laundry.
It's cool to be able to buy one tune but I love buying discs. I love the feel of a stack of discs in my hand. I love cover art and reading lyrics. But I don't have the money to go crazy buying discs. And six bucks, new music. It's all good.
