Mark Steyn penned a polemic this week that rails against the coarsening of our cutlure and in the process, he mentioned some old songs that I love, but don't own. One thing led to another and I ended up listening to Nat King Cole on YouTube.
Almost all of the music I own comes from my old collection of CDs. It was easy to rip them onto my PC and then transfer them here and there. I'm not sure I want to be buying CDs any more, though.
How do you buy music? Do you get it off Amazon? Do you use iTunes? I don't have any Apple products, so iTunes concerns me - every time I've ever loaded it onto my PC it turns out to be a annoying, insistent, bloated toad of a program, trying to take over every aspect of my multimedia, trying to convert all of my files and constantly update itself.
So how do you buy music?
