I got my minidisc player. I am elated. Joyous. Rejoiceful. Rapturous. It is shiny like a newborn baby. And yesterday night I even went out of my way to compile yet another album - Stereolab's Sound-Dust - in my desperate attempts to satisfy my audio withdrawals. Nonetheless, it was not a wasted effort- the album is wonderful. I am so recording this evening.
