good bye




Death to the CD. I love music. I used to love CD's. It was the thing that linked me to my dad (and books). Everytime I came home from college we would go to Best Buy and get a new CD. It was so fun. I would pour over the selection and pretend to be surprised when my dad would suggest a certain cd. We would trade suggestions but I usually knew in advance what music was going home with me. Lots of times I ended up with 2 treasures.

Side note* My dad has excellent taste in music and has fostered a love of music in me. (songs, not playing music). He taught me to love 60's music and I have introduced him to????

Then came the I-Pod into my life. It is AMAZING. I still love music and I still pour over my selections, now on Itunes. My dad now buys me i tune gift cards . We still talk about the new music, just now we both pull our itunes accounts. (just last night, I called him with a Avril Lavigine suggestion). BUT we no longer buy CD's. Rich and I went through our cd's and donated/threw out all of my past obessions. I am sad to say goodbye but beat will go on....
