    @height8 Especially the reveal that the vampires are a poorly kept secret!

      @height8 I always loved that line! Grandpa’s matter-of-factness totally sells it!

        @joanna It’s ok. I can accept that version 2.0 has arrived and that I will slowly be phased out. It’s the way of things! @claudette @mrshaiku @cn

          @mrshaiku I’d rather drown in her eyes. @claudette @joanna @cn

            @remus At least that would make me feel the anticipation of receiving a parcel via the mail…

              @remus it just does what it says: Air. Drop. ;)

                @mrshaiku Hi!!! Don’t worry, she gets plenty of hydration from those monsoons. :-/ @claudette @joanna @cn

                  @joanna Would you prefer “She swept into my life like a whirlwind on a tour of my heart, leaving destruction in her wake ameliorated only by the hot sirocco of her passion & the monsoon-heat of her kiss”? @claudette @cn

                    @joanna She swept me off my feet years ago…and has been hitting me ever since. @claudette @cn Image [photos.app.net]

                        @claudette (to LMS): Hurry up! You’re going to be late for school! LMS: No we’re not. You never know what the future’s going to bring! #cubquote #houseofk

                            @schoeni And hopefully musicians of all stripes will be able to potentially earn a decent living from this model. @joanna

                              @schoeni Which was going to be my next point. :) In truth, I think the huge profit margin days are largely over. Now it’s about discovery and building a loyal following. Hopefully, the Internet will make this process easier. @joanna

                                @joanna If that cut will be sufficient, I have no clue. Also, Apple will have to convince a large enough base to shell out for their service. For that, they will have to be better than all the competition. @schoeni

                                  @joanna I have no clue how the streaming business model looks. My guess is Apple is betting on leveraging its huge user base to get some money in the game. I can only hope they realize that giving musicians a fair cut is critical. @schoeni

                                    @schoeni For me the family use is a compelling case, also because we will probably not need to buy music anymore if steaming of their full catalog is available.
