  • A tremendous link, Heather.

    This just made my first hour of work very enjoyable tonight. Not tedious, as usual.

    Belatedly, also, I am not going to see the Tom Petty/Pearl Jam shows at the Pepsi Center. Like you said, a little on the expensive side.

  • Find the money for the Petty/Pearl show. Neither band EVER dissappoints.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
