On something of an impulse I bought an iPod (along with the new Belle & Sebastian and Shins albums). The combination of the 3rd gen iPods and iTunes for Windows got the better of me. And something about the red-backlighting on the buttons clinched it while I was in the local Apple store. I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who feels this way. On a crowded plane last week, while trying unsuccessfully to drown out the conversation of those sitting behind me with a bad movie, I thought “What would be even better is if I had every album I own with me”. Now I just need to rip a couple hundred CDs.
