Help is on the way
I broke down and sent for musical reinforcements to get me through the end of the summer. It also didn't hurt that Barnes & Noble has a sale on right now--every CD is $12.98 or less, or $11.68 with my membership discount. I did a little sweep of long-standing wishes from my wish list, ordered a replacement of the Harder They Come soundtrack which I can't find anywhere and which is my musical oxygen in the summer, and added some new things I just feel like I have to have. Those, plus the Best of Van Morrison I just got from my favorite LJer jugglingpfoole, ought to get me through until Labor Day.

And yes, I know, I'm the only fool left who still buys CDs. I like having something I can pick up and carry and spill and scratch and have my dog chew on, and more to the point I can't bring myself to buy an iPod just yet.

Interesting selection. Of the ones I recognize I definitely approve. I've been meaning to get my hands on some Beach Boys and Willie Nelson at some point myself.

You will be assimilated into MP3 culture, you know. I love my iPod mini, but I just ordered my second MP3 player, 'cuz I wanted needed a really tiny one for running/exercising.

For what it's worth, FoolMan is addicted to his iPod but still loves CDs too. He even likes to burn backup copies of things for car travel and the like. Perhaps, like him, you're attracted to shiny things?

Well, that would be the positive spin on things. To be honest, I don't like CDs at all, I'm just extremely, extremely cranky about adopting new technologies. I don't feel that I'm set up to store zillions of music files in MP3 format, and I don't feel that my computer is the most secure place for them.
