One Billion Downloads

In the spirit of Apple's recent momentarily newsworthy and self-aggrandizing milestone, I too will celebrate a marker passed.

Though not as cool (or profitable) as reaching a billion downloaded songs, scientists have calculated through advanced regression analysis that I will climb over 10,000 hits on Wednesday morning.

"The billionth song, 'Speed of Sound,' was purchased as part of Coldplay's 'X&Y' album by Alex Ostrovsky from West Bloomfield, Michigan. As the grand prize winner, he will receive a 20-inch iMac, 20 fifth generation iPods, and a $10,000 Music Card good for any item on the iTunes Music Store. In addition, to commemmorate this milestone, Apple will establish a scholarship to the world-renowned Julliard School in his name" -- Apple.com Press Release

That's pretty cool. But, I guess Ostrovsky should consider himself equally as blessed for not being the "lucky" winner for a George Michael or Nick Lachey transfer.

Well, in the paraphrased words of Carl Spackler, there will be no scholarships endowed in your name for reading these erratic and sporadic postings. But, I can promise total consciousness on your quest for Zen. So you'll have that going for you.

Thank you for reading. Good luck!
