Well, my music review site mentioned a few weeks ago is live. Check it out. Hey, this might be a good way to tell how many people actually read this diary..

Anyway, I'm posting it here to see if there are any bugs and see if people really hate/love it before I start entering data and opinion in earnest, and stick it on Yahoo. So if you have any strong feelings either way, or manage to break it, let me know! Or don't even click on the link. See if I care.

So I went to work today, and the boss wasn't there. Oh well. Turns out I'm staying home tomorrow, since they're waxing the hallway floor by the office..

I've been seriously considering signing up for Emusic's subscription program. They've got thousands of albums available for download on mp3 for about $10 apiece, or you can download individual tracks for about a buck apiece.

But with the subscription program, which is $10 a month per year, you have free run of everything! There's tons of good stuff on there, Fates Warning, Galactic Cowboys, some classical, and a ton of undergroundish punk/ska. Mogwai also sells their albums on there. Even some mainstream bands, such as the Goo Goo Dolls and Mighty Mighty Bosstones have their older catalogs available.

The only thing stopping me is the lack of a CDR drive. I'm also sort of a purist when it comes to music--I like to have the whole package..The liner notes, jewel case, etc. Some of the emusic albums actually have liner notes in PDF format, but not all. I'd also like to burn the discs so I could listen in the car... Maybe one of these days.
