I’m trying to not buy records. Tidal, a music streaming service to which I recently subscribed, is helping me do that without any sense of loss. I feel much better off.
Tidal is expensive at $20 a month but I used to buy about an album a month at or above that price. Now at the end of the year I don’t have 12 albums. I have thousands. I am listening to Low’s Transmission EP right now. Best thing I’ve heard in a long while. I have one Low CD and have always loved it, but have never sought out more. Now, for as long as I let Tidal pluck $20 from my credit card each month, I have all four of Low’s albums and seven of their EPs. This is going to be fun.
Frida just lapped the pond and chewed her first 2015 grass. She was slow at the end, but it was warm and the end is uphill. She made it. I am so happy for her. She’s getting the lazy dog days in the back yard that I so hoped she’d enjoy.
Spring is here! Smile in between sneezing!
