The ultimate iTunes arbitrage experience is here. Consider Miles Davis’s Pangaea. Two 40 minute long tracks. Price on Amazon: $16.99.
Price on iTunes: $0.99 per track. That’s right, a buck-98 for the whole shootin’ match.
A story from the weekend I haven’t told yet: I had to stop by the U-Haul on Saturday to take care of my grill’s propane tank. When I stepped into the store, Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” was playing. And all the clerks—the long-haired one who appeared to be in charge, the tall thin taciturn black-haired one messing with the reservation computer, the heavyset guy running back and forth to the lot getting rental trucks ready—were singing along. I found myself unconsciously singing too: Magnifico-o-o-o… And the guy who walked in a second later behind me started doing it too.
And here I thought that only happened in the movies. Apparently it happens in slacker Seattle, too.
