So, yeah, I'm spoiled 

Rhapsody, with whom I have a complicated love/hate commercial relationship, used to have the Six Feet Under, Volume 2 soundtrack available to stream. This was nice (the love aspect of my relationship) because I am entranced with SiA's "Breath Me" (which was playing at the death montage at the end of the final episode). The song is haunting and beautiful, and I can't get it out of my head.

Last night I realized--when I tried to play the song for some friends--that Rhapsody had taken the entire album off the streaming network (the hate aspect). But here's what makes me so spoiled: I am actually upset that I can't listen to the song. iTunes, inexplicably, won't sell me the SiA's single either. They'll sell me the whole album--which is not worth $13--or other singles from the album, but not "Breath Me." Dammit! I want to listen to the song and cannot without purchasing an incredibly mediocre album. Ah, the frustrations and indignities of the modern condition...

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
