 Excellent assessment, as usual. Mostly because it's not a mere "assessment," which is the word I end up pasting over "listening" when I'm in similar funks. Yes, we're here to drink deeply, yet the buzz comes on its own schedule. Yet it comes, thankfully. Thanks for the reminder.

 I dated a girl last fall who didn't own a single CD, and lost her entire collection of downloaded Top 40 singles when her iPod died. She just couldn't understand why I own hundreds upon hundreds of CDs, and have thousands and thousands of mp3s on my computer (even though I possess no means to play them anywhere but in front of my computer, which I do more often than is reasonable). Needless to say, we didn't see each other long. If we still spoke, I'd send her this piece, but she still wouldn't get it. She'd never understand how THAT ONE SONG can lift you up and make everything seem new. Ian, as always, nice work.
