APPLE SHOVES MUSIC IN MY FACE

To celebrate the introduction of the iWatch and iPhone 6, Apple put a copy of the latest U2 album in everybody's iTunes. I can absolutely understand why people are raging about this, and they are right. Me, I just like free music, and so far it's being an enjoyable album. I haven't bought a U2 album since "Joshua Tree" and while they have lost their fire in the belly, I can see myself putting this one on sometimes.

I got a start date on my job! I start September 29, because I have VA appointments and MAJ T's wedding on the 22nd, in San Diego. The OUSA (Office of the U.S. Attorney) decided to waive my background check, so I can haz job. This means putting off ALC for another year, but I don't care. A fat-ass paycheque trumps six weeks of misery on the east coast.

I'm thinking of getting a Chromebook. I am wary of becoming a materialist, but I was fiddling with some at Best Buy and...so cool.

I did not realize that the new U2 album was free in iTunes... so I just went to try and download it, and for some reason, it's not showing up in my Purchased section (where the app says it should be).

I was wondering why I had a U2 album suddenly appearing in my iTunes. That explains it. Thanks!

Congratulations on the job!

I have mixed feelings about U2. I don't know about the fire in the belly; here and there they still show flashes of the emotional intensity that made "Boy", "Zooropa", and "Joshua Tree" so awesome, but it's true they can't seem to make it last for a whole album anymore.
