I don’t have much to say on each of these separately, so a bulk entry seems appropriate:
Video: I signed up for DVDFlix.ca on Tuesday night. Wednesday by 11am my first three DVD’s had shipped, and today (Thursday) they arrived in my mailbox. I’ve now got Kill Bill Vol.1, Gothika & Chicago to entertain me for the next little while. You really can’t beat it for $20/mo when everything on TV is reruns.
Music: Puretracks.com sucks. I got one of those free songs with my Big Mac Meal, so I went, I chose, I downloaded. The songs come in .wma format (fairly useless, since I primarily use winamp), and license to your machine, so they’re un-shareable (at least for someone who’s not a leet hax0r like me). Good thing it was free – I’d never pay a buck for useless music.
