Rhapsodic update

Help me out here. Am I the only person in the world who can be totally placated by finding the solution to a problem when it comes to customer/tech support? Rhapsody C/TS just sent me the most convoluted, user-unfriendly email in response to the problems that I've been having (glitches in their software, I should add) and it took me a good two days to figure it all out.

But I'm happy. Despite hair-ripping frustration, music surely has calmed the mighty pissed off beast. I even got my playlists back. And now, I'm sitting here, knowing that I really should be upset with the infinite monkeys who caused these issues, but instead the Flaming Lips are good for my ills. I know I should be using my mind to come up with a Power-of-the-Consumer campaign that will show the suits over at Real that they can't push us around, but instead I'm using my mind to decide whether or not I like Arcade Fire.

To celebrate my infantile response to such corporate apathy, here's the playlist for Esther's CD. If you remember, E asked me to make her a comp disk to help her get through the hospital babying process. I played this for her yesterday and she seemed to like it:

The Sleep Like A Baby Mix 2005

And here's a Rhapsody playlist for those of you who would like to play along at home.


You'll notice it isn't an exact match, but until the Beatles manage to find their way online, that'll never be a one to one ratio. Hope you like...
