Doing the connect-only-connect on iTunes
Ah yes: being a music-lover makes it MUCH too easy to waste time on iTunes, that Humongous Repository of the stuff. Grooving to a tune that you spent years scouring the record-bins to find, and bumped into quite by accident on the "Genius" sidebar (hello "A Girl Like You" by the Troggs). Finding a far cleaner version of a favorite song that you only had on a scratchy LP (hello "Well Well Well" by the Seekers). Finding splendid but obscure albums at all (hello the Holy Modal Rounders' Good Taste Is Timeless and Kinky Friedman's Sold American).
