meghan mccain has good taste in music! who woulda thunk? i dunno why this surprises me so much. i mean, she’s 24. she likes music. this is the music 24 yr olds (and 29 yr olds, *ahem*) listen to…still, it’s. just. weird. to me.

from the comments: “imeem, last.fm, lala, etc. - all dedicated to not giving the music consumer what they want: unrestricted music files on the consumer’s own hard drive(s) at a low, low price; so, hardly surprising that they are in trouble.” dear sir, it’s not that simple. :/
