In the next 24 hours, I’m going to buy two CDs. That’s ‘Compact Disks’, not a ‘Certificate of Deposit’, for those born after 1982. They will be Tom Petty’s “Highway Companion” and Johnny Cash’s “American V: A Hundred Highways”. The fact that both albums have “highway” in their title is completely coincidental. I will then upload them into my ipod and play them all summer long.
It’s been over a year since I bought my last CD. It was going to be Damian Marley’s “Welcome to Jamrock” (which, by the way, is great) but I got lazy and downloaded the whole thing. But today, Petty and Cash it is.

The Cash CD is good (albeit sad as you hear him muster the strength to use his full voice…)
Haven’t heard American V, but III (”Solitary Man”) and IV (”My Mother’s Hymnbook”) are wonderful.
People born after 1982 shouldn’t get Certificates of Deposit either. If they need cash flow, they should get a checking account with interest; if they’re saving, their retirement horizon is too far out for such a conservative investment.
Petty and Cash? “Petty cash”? Please tell me the pun is intended…

Har har. I actually used cassette tapes back in the day. How’s that for hipster cred?
Oh, and I approve of your album selections, for what it’s worth.
