Saving money

Here's a question...if the whole album costs $9.99, but you are only interested in one song off the album, and you can get the single for $0.99 on iTunes, are you saving $9.00? I would probably like at least a few of the other songs on it, and who knows, when they are released as singles and I actually hear them, I might buy them for a dollar. In fact, I just went back out to iTunes to look, and there are 11 songs on it, one of which is a cover of the classic "Devil went down to Georgia." Maybe I should have spent the $9 extra.
I just realized I never mentioned the name of the band, or the album, so here it is.

Couple things today that I wanted to write down. Mark Sanborn talks about how he likes blogs (and likes TO blog) because he likes to write less and more frequently than stressing out about longer content on a regular basis - printed articles and books I imagine.
I am in the same boat, although I don't do either frequently. Of course his saying it is what prompted me to write this post, so although he'll probably never know it, his post caused action in others. Sometimes a reminder to yourself is that trigger that someone else is looking for.

I also posted something I read at the Meebo blog. They did a little research on Wikipedia about the origin of the emoticon, otherwise known as the smiley. Check it out on my quick-n-dirty _rock_tumblr.

Tumblr is pretty cool, especially if you are looking for a really, really quick and easy way to start blogging. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that a typepad or have, but for some people, simple is good.
