light at the end of the tunnel.

well now! such excitement!

ok, not really. "excitement" means that mid-organizing of my spectacularrr cover collection, the external hard drive it was stored on decided to die. i became intimately acquainted with the term "click of death" and its dire consequences, not limited to:

- paying $500 for some guys in a clean room to take apart your drive and take all the crap off of it.

- sticking the drive in a plastic bag and putting it in the freezer for an hour, then removing it and acting really damn quickly, as this is probably your absolute last chance.

i, however, opted for:

- smack the stupid thing until the arm jumped back into place.

and i was victorious! all data was moved successfully to my shiny new laptop with its magical 500gb of storage, and i am now in the process of organizing my collection and collecting data for each song.

NOT ONLY THAT, i think i've found a good widget (HAHAHA THAT WORD IS SO FUNNY SERIOUSLY) for playing music, via mixpod.com. i'd actually link it here, but don't worry, you'll be seeing plenty of linkage to it in each post, as it's embedded into each code snippet it produces for playlists. i then go in and make it not so retarded-looking while still maintaining the links because, hey, they're providing a service that is easy, looks sleek, and is useful. that deserves some linking.

the part i like the best about the coming changes is the amazon associates account i signed up for. now, if you hear a song here you like, you can, with one click, make your way to the convenient amazon.com mp3 download, thus supporting my lavish, high-falootin' lifestyle of grandeur. because i can do that on 15% of a $.99 download. duh.

so this blog will return soon
