but I’m with it now.
The transformation began when I discovered youtube the other day.
It perfectly complements the hour or so per day I listen to the radio. I’ve been trying to listen to stations other than Kiss FM lately. It was time. Anyway, whenever I hear a song I like, I google the lyrics, find out who sings it and then go straight to youtube and watch the videos. If I like the song enough, I’ll play it in the background ad infinitum while I work. Meera loves that.*
If the new song stands up to the youtube test, I may even go so far as to get out my utorrent and download it. Now, I hadn’t downloaded a song since 9/11**. I’ve been listening to the same shit ever since. And Kiss FM. And some $1 cassettes from garage sales. I have a helluva discriminating ear, I tell you.
Then I borrowed an iPod shuffle from Sue for EuroTrip 07. I put those mp3s I had downloaded from those new radio stations I had to try cause Alex hates Kiss FM on that iPod shuffle and woah.
So, the point is that I finally heard the Postal Service. Again and again. I can finally understand what people are talking about at parties.
Phew. That was a close one.
*but screw her cause she quit.
**that was the date that whole Napster scare happened, wasn’t it?!
