Are all Mac products as simple to use as the iPod and its related software? Because if so…tell me why we went the way of the PC again?

Now that I’ve ripped it I’ve owned Meat Loaf’s “Bat Out of Hell” in 4 different formats.
Same with Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Same with Springsteen’s “Born to Run.”
Ditto Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America.”
And The Moody Blues’ “Days of Future Past”
In Three Formats:
“Joe Jackson Live” and “The Best of Elvis Costello and The Attractions”

I’ve done the math. To complete my U2 Collection it’s still cheaper to download the whole thing off iTunes with the rebate from the iPod than it is to just try to fill in the holes album by album. But damn…not by much. I don’t even remember buying “Pop” and I can’t tell you if I ever listened to it.

Rattle and Hum still does…and well I might add.

The Cars still put a smile on my face when I hear the opening to “Good Times Roll” and the transition between “Bye Bye Love” and “Moving in Stereo” should never ever be messed with. I’ve taken radio stations off my presets for playing one without the other and I’ll do it again. There’s no excuse for that.

I really miss The Gin Blossoms.

I’m not watching Leno until after the whole Michael Jackson thing is over. Some say it’s made him funny again, I just find it to be a bad case of piling on…which he’s done before and I guess people seem to like it.

American Idol was kind of cool last night…both the rock guys made it through which gives me some hope for the thing at large but don’t we know at this point that it’s down to being between Anthony Fedorov and Mario Vazquez? You know it’s a guy’s year. And these two seem to have the whole thing down. I’d love to be wrong, but my prediction is these two in the last episode.

I own AC/DC’s “The Razor’s Edge?” WT…oh, “Thunderstruck.”

Lost was better last night than last week, but it’s still not where it was. God I hope they don’t start to suck so soon.

Am I the only one who’s going to miss NYPD Blue?

This will make my friend at the DAZ happy.

DAZ is Chicago-ese for Dead Animal Zoo. “Da kidz are goin’ on a field trip.” “Da DAZ?” “No, da Submarine one.”

Thank you for putting up with my boredom. I’m not sure how much longer I can take this. I may need to try walking further today.
