I am Napster’s B*tch

I feel like such a chump.  I feel like I just went back into an unhealthy relationship and, despite my hopes that things will be better this time around, I know it will all be the same.

I went back to Napster.  I’m giving them a second chance…

I know, I know what you are going to say to me.  You left Napster eight months ago because of the way it treated you!  They’re going to treat me the same as before.  Napster is still going to put those programs into my computer and mp3 player.  It is still going to pseudo-forbid me from using players b/c it likes to be controlling.  It’s still going to make me link to it once a week, because Napster always wants to know what I am doing (it is jealous of me using other programs).

But, can’t you see that Napster was good to me price-wise?!

And I’ve tried to break the habit.  I’ve used other music programs and, although friendly at first, all they really wanted to do was get deeper into my pockets.  I even tried buying individual albums, but that only made me realize how much money I was spending and how much I was still missing out.

I’m sorry, but I had to go back for something that was going to offer me better financial stability.  If not for me, for the children… Christmas and Birthdays are coming up for crying out loud.  Do you want me to get them nothing!?

So, okay Napster, you got me back.  I hope you are happy.  You will see me linking my mp3 player to you and letting watch who I’m listening to, but that doesn’t mean I love you!
