the only earth?

in the news

interesting stats from an article announcing "Universal to cut prices of its CD's"1:
The deep price cut — the only one to apply to new CD's since the format was introduced in the early 1980's — represents a gamble by Universal that more consumers will buy more CD's once the price dips below $13 . . . When CD's first arrived on the market they cost $15.98, and have climbed from there.

In other snowmen in hell news Aaron went to a Dean 2004 meetup last night and I didn't.

I will be going to the "Music for America" benefit tonight at Chop Suey to make up for it. And to see Aveo.
