Nights just get later, I could stay up and wait or just go on to bed like I do

So I don't know how many of you have heard of the new product-thing from audiogalaxy...probably anyone who had an account...but Rhapsody is looking kinda interesting to me.

I downloaded the free trial thing, and basically, you get a nearly unlimited playlist (limited only by those albums/artists that are not yet available).

Now, this thing is $10 a month, and I'm trying to decide if it's worth it. I basically only use Winamp or any mp3 device for songs and albums I already have. But saving all those songs, especially when I have them on CD seems a waste.

So this would be good because I could delete all my mp3s, and still listen to almost everything I would usually listen to.

Or I would use it to look up new artists I might be interested in. And this conveniently loads entire albums to listen to. Like I loaded Vanessa Carlton and Justin Timberlake, because these are both CDs I'd like to buy, but I want to make sure it's worth it first.

And you can burn CDs from Rhapsody...for .99/track. So basically a full CD is somewhere from about $11-13. The norm, really. And I would probably go out and buy the actual CD anyhow, so it wouldn't really be an additional charge.

But $10 a month?

If it were $5, I would definitely do it. But I don't know if I'd want to spend $120 a year on a service like this.

But already, I've almost decided that I need to buy the Vanessa Carlton CD, after hearing two of the songs and liking them a lot.

I guess I should use it for a little longer and see if it's something I would really like to do. And of course there's that whole "I really have no money to put toward it"...meaning I should really go the the bank and open a checking account with atm/debit card soon. I just recently found $200 worth of birthday checks in my room. Eep! 4 months and I still haven't gotten those cashed or deposited. Damn, it's a good thing I didn't lose them.

So yes. That's where I am right now.
