I'm currently on my fourth iPod. Like yours, the battery keeps playing tricks on me, and yet I continue to buy them again and again. And I probably always will. I can't believe how much music I have at my fingertips at a given moment, or can have thanks to the iTunes store. I recently looked at my Bank of America account, and so far this year I've spent $142.39 at the iTunes store. Oops. But I refuse to steal music like many people. It's my opinion that if you don't support bands, it can be hard for them to really measure their fan base (yes, I have heard of Facebook but you know what I mean)... How will your favorite, new band know to come put on a show in your city? Think about it and do the right thing! This doesn't mean that I won't download free stuff when it's available. My best pick in that category would have to be Girl Talk's album Feed the Animals. That link will take you to his most recent album, All Day, which is also great, but below is one of my favorite tracks from Feed the Animals.
WARNING: If you are offended by curse words, enjoy dance beats or any top 40 song from any category from the past 30 years DO NOT download these two albums! You'll be moved to dance around your cubicle uncontrollably and I can't be held responsible for anyone that loses his or her job.
Which bands have you tapping your feet these days?
