Online music ....

This is the first time I bought songs from iTunes store to keep me company while running. Well, with most of the CD shops closing down over the last few years, except Popular, I think I needed to get my favourite music online. I did buy some before but not via iTunes. Another reason I buy online is I don't have to keep the CD and just keep the softcopy. While searching for songs, I was glad I found some 12" 80s remix numbers and these are original singers. Well, during the mid-80s when I was still a young teen, I was amazed with how they remix the popular songs into lengthy ones with lots of techno effects. Even HK cantonese pop songs also did that. I still remembers George Lam 10 mins 12" remix.

Anyway, too bad the music I bought was not of high quality which I thought it is, since it's from iTunes. Though it AAC format, it's kinda like a mid-quality MP3 format. Ok la... still bearable but it will be great if I can get those lossless formats.

Oh.. I just had a workout tonight and glad that I ordered my favourite Salmon bento. It came with a few chunks of fried chicken, teriyaki salmon, agedashi tofu and a salad. Quite filling. :)

Have a good weekend !!

  14. I've never bought music from iTunes, usually just buy games (I buy a lot of games) and an audiobook once. I'm playing a lot of Hearthstone, got the new expansion pack, Blizzard makes the best games. It's now playable on an iPhone after the latest update too.
