Mt. Fandom

The 2011 Fandom Awards

I've gotten so many comments in the last 24 hours, I feel like a pinball being batted back and forth between demands on my attention. And I love it. I feel pampered and spoiled and...fully realize that, like a squirrel, I must gather up these acorns of kind words to sustain me for the upcoming cold, routine months ahead.
I don't know what got into Google, but they have all these songs available for free download right now, and I am talking almost entirely popular radio hits. I am presently being enchanted by the ever-delightful "Hit 'Em Up Style." I wandered over because I saw "49 cent songs" on a webpage ad (using IE is cool sometimes!) and I was happy with that idea, but this is even better. You do have to enter credit card info to create a Google Wallet account; possibly this is some scheme of the devil I don't understand, but it rang up as 0.00 and it can be downloaded to the computer and/or saved online for playback, so I'm pretty delighted with it. Says it's a limited time offer, though, so I don't know how long this will last.
And finally, the part the title promised:
