About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

My Photo
Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

More on Why I Don't Want the Cloud
Thursday, October 13, 2011
In our-- by which I mean my-- previous post, I mentioned that the Cloud was doing me no favors as regards enjoyment of my iTunes library. I bought into Apple's promise of "20,000 songs in your pocket," and I've been digitizing stuff for 8 years to realize that dream.

I have about 17,000 songs in iTunes now (and that's misleading; many of them are an hour or more, because I ripped a bunch of live CD-long concert performances as a single song.)

I've bought fewer than 500 of these songs from Apple.

Apple provides 5 gigs of iCloud storage. You can buy more.

I've got about 16,500 songs-- about 120 gigs-- that isn't purchased from iTunes, and for which I'd thus need to purchase space to accommodate. Apple sells incremental storage space-- really, rents it-- at the rate of $2 a gig. To access my entire iTunes library through iCloud, then, would cost me $240. A year.

Really Apple? Really?

Thanks, no thanks.
