Oh my god.

These things are amazing. I haven't been this overwhelmed since Napster came out. First song I ever downloaded: REM's "It's The End Of The World." To this day, I don't know why I chose that song. It took roughly an hour to download, and I still have the file.

96kbps (!!!)

I promise to buy every single album in my music library once I achieve my financial goals. Until then, I will repay by being the most frequent live show attendee who occasionally dabbles in merch.

I doubled the size of my digital music library in only eight days. This is likely to become a problem. I hate that no one has seeded Squeeze's entire discography at 320kbps. FAIL.


How are we expected to back up all our shit? I mean, if my external hard drive crashes, I am completely FUCKED. Years worth of memories in video and stills, alongside countless other years of collecting music would just go down the drain in a second.

A part of me wants to burn every single album into its own disc and print every single photo taken on the digital camera. Just in case.

Caring fucking sucks.


Britney Spears -- Toxic

I envy that back beat and melody. A lot. Almost perversely too much.

This video, however, makes me wish I didn't have eyes.
