Despite a really terrific weekend, I had some fairly bad Sunday night blues. We'd had Easter dinner with E's family. I guess, as much as I want to be on board with the whole friendly, accessible in-law routine, I can't help feeling very vegetarian and very non-Christian when I'm sitting in a stodgy restaurant, watching old people eat ham. So I was grumpy and pouty as a result.

So, E decided to give me my birthday present more than a week early; an MP3 player! Hurrah! I no longer have to look hopelessly dorky carrying around a cassette tape walkman. No more skipping CDs! I can have hours and hours of songs strapped to my wrist. I cannot tell you happy this makes me.

Now here's a question. Let's assume for the moment I don't want to steal music (cause I'm an upstanding citizen like that, or some junk.) Anybody know of a good music service that sells MP3s that don't suck? I've poked around at a few of the bigger ones, and it looks like there all full of poppy chart-climbers of various sorts. Nothing edgy, nothing old, no World Music or obscure stuff. Where do I buy good MP3s?

Other bits you might like or find interesting:
Green Tara Mantra, by The Dalai Lama (every MP3 player ought to have some Dalai Lama, I say. Aye, Lama! Wait.. maybe I'm thinking alpacas..

Manuel, by The Slackers (This is that song I had my alarm set to forever and a month, so you may already be sick of it, but it's ska, so technically you *have* to like it. :D)

Samsara, by Rasa (good on a massage mix, maybe - Rasa's stuff is all so soothy)

Anyhoo - point being, there's oodles of good stuff.

For the record, I did not just spend an hour browsing and downloading random muzic. (really.)
