Work in Progress

Baseball, Seminary, Wrestling, and the Dreams and Days of one Mike Work's Angeles experience

So I've gone over to the dark side...namely ITunes.

And I am impressed. The interface is nice, easy on the eyes and the brain, and the usage policies are anything but anal. My first purchase? The Jealous Sound EP: five tracks, under five bucks, sells for $11 with liner, and I just burned it to disc. Nice job, Jobs.

And I must give credit to the WWE as well; finally, Vinnie Mac has began to take advantage of his huge vintage tape library, putting together some excellent multi-disc sets for Ric Flair, Mick Foley, and Chris Benoit over the first half of the year, and adding the WWE Jukebox to the website, where fans can purchase selected streamed matches from ECW, WCW, and the WWF at the rate of $1.49 a match or $3.95 for all 20 matches for the month. The availability of additional matches from past SummerSlams (and the entire 1992 card) makes the SummerSlam webcast a viable buy, and enough of a value for those who choose high speed internet over cable. As one who was often frustrated that the federation sat on all the masters while bootleggers dealt fourth-generation copies, this sports-entertainment fan is pleased.
