Music Downloads

A subscription to emusic was my birthday gift to myself. Not finding satisfaction with any free services – which either have a very limited selection and or don’t let you keep any music – I decided to look into paid services for my music needs.

I find itunes too expensive and can’t always find what I need, so emusic, a monthly subscription site (you get a certain number of credits each month that carry over if unused) that features more obscure stuff as well as the more mainstream, sounded good.

The fact that albums cost half what they normally would (usually around $6) sealed the deal. The easy browsing searches have already introduced me to new fabulous things (like recent pick, Darondo) and a nifty “save for later” feature helps me make sure I don’t forget albums that interest me.

Added bonus points and discounts were a nice addition. Once my new month credits come, I think I’ll finally get that Grinderman album which is exciting.

Spend a Couple Minutes »Mulchfest

Now You Know What To Do With Your Tree

Don’t throw your Christmas tree out on the street corner – especially with the sanitation team just getting caught up on trash removal. Go to Mulchfest instead! It’s a great city wide service and while it’s not “fest” exactly – more like a big machine, two guys to work it, and a pile of trees – but you can walk away with some mulch if you are lucky enough to have a garden that needs it.

There are 70 sites throughout the city, their website has a map to help you find one near you.
