    The best thing about digital music is that you have to keep transferring it to different media or lose it. Good thing it's free.

    I mean think about it. You can save a record or cd but download music gets lost. Even when you burn it.


    How many of you have a cd collection display? I bet ChuckZ does.

    They sure don't skip! And if you fold that matchbook and stick it underneath, it will stop dragging and that squeaking noise will probably stop.
