Another Leanna and Klyment shopping entry. Leanna was waiting for some weird lab procedure to finish in the medical sciences building on the University campus and she joined me in searching for some discs. This trip was prompted by several complaints and somewhat negative responses to music I had available in my studio. Everything from Jonathan's burning a music CD on his PowerBook and popping it into my machine without asking and then offering to be my studio DJ any day to Huy's blatant complaint of having his energy completely drawn out by the repetitive drone pumped out by WinAmp to Meags not even venturing to complain about the abysmal lyrics of some song that was in my playlist (I swear it's not all mine). Anyway, we visited Blackbyrd Myoozik, Megatunes, and Southside Sound all on Whyte Avenue. From Blackbyrd I picked up a two disc Jesse Cook collection and a disc by Grandaddy which was definitely NOT what I thought it was. Nasty. The music on the Jesse Cook collection was awesome and it even came with a couple interesting features . . .
Cover Art . . . doesn't actually look like the cover on the disc but it's fairly close. And I'm sorry . . . I love your music but you're uhhh . . . not very good looking. And I mean it in the nicest way possible.
Hmmm . . . a disc with its own player. Cool.
This keeps getting better: a disc with its own disc ripper and, *gasp*, lossless, rights managed audio extraction. Exciting.
Save error? I love how EMI Music thought that it would be nice to help me protect myself from my own copyright. Well fuck you too. The next time I see anything from EMI that smells of copy protection it's staying on the shelf. Yup, I said that in that frickin' survey you linked to from this disc, too. Fuckers.
