Anna Nicole thrilled until told "curves" do not mean undulating piles of fat

Two popup ad related topics today. First off, holy crap how annoying are popup ads? I accidentally turned off the automatic popup blocking in Mozilla and almost had a coronary right there on the spot! They're everywhere and they're totally annoying! Ugh!

However, while I accidentally had my popup blockingn off I did get a gigantic full page popup for... *drum roll* a piece of software the promised to block 100% of your unwanted popup ads. People are so stupid sometimes I swear!

There are no Cats in Canadian Ketchup.

So the other day I picked up an emusic.com account. It's $15 a month for unlimited legal MP3 downloads from their site. They have a pretty eclectic mix of music. Most of it is indie stuff and pretty decent. It's all sampled at 128kbs and includes the ID3 tags. As far as I can tell they're normal MP3s, no DRM stuff. For whatever odd reason the "genre" of every MP3 I've got from them has been blues! :)

The first night I was getting 400k downloads from their site. This stuff screams down! I've really been adding to my music collection with all sorts of weird stuff. I wish I had found this a long time ago!
