I was thinking today about the fact that Apple just released the Beatles entire library of music on iTunes. My first thought was COOL! My second thought was cool. My last thought was, "Hey, I already have all their CD's and any music I want on my iPod/iPad is already there."
So, why would I buy them again?
Just to say I did? Just to put another $13 in Steve's pocket? Just to...
I can't really think of a reason.
And yet I'm still tempted. Abbey Road has a little documentary on it, which would be cool to watch, I suppose. Making of the album cover or something like that. Who's going to go barefoot? Paul is dead. Number 9, Number 9, Number 9...
I think I'm crossing up my albums now. Sorry about that.
The funnier part of this is I'm not even that huge of a Beatles fan. I like the Beatles. But if it weren't for my love's influence and her massive fan-ness of the band I don't know that I ever would have owned a Beatles album.
And here I am thinking about spending my hard-earned credit card balance on a Beatles album I already have.
I think I need to distract myself and order some Ratt, Poison or Twisted Sister... all the stuff I thought was bitchin' when I was seventeen.
Yes, if you haven't yet figured this out, I am an impulse buyer. Grocery stores love me and put stuff next to me in the checkout line. Best Buy is about 10 seconds from my job and sometimes, after a hard day at work, when I get in my truck and see that big blue and yellow sign, I just want to go walk around amongst all that impulsey goodness. (If someone gave me $100,000 to spend in Best Buy, I could do it.) I love to browse the App store even though my dear Padrick carries around plenty of fun already.
It's a weakness. Any of you suffer from it?
If not, tell me about your greatest weakness... that you can talk about in public. :)
