Oh, my aching sides
"Music was better when we were kids ... When we were young we had tapes, and you listened to every track. You didn't fast forward in case you overshot. And songs you didn't like turned out to be your favourites, because the album became a person. It grew on you. Now, if kids don't like the first few bars, they're gone. You've got to grab them. I tell you what the problem is - it's downloading." - Danger Mouse in an interview with The Telegraph via Coolfer

That would be the same DJ Dangermouse, who shot to fame when a million-zillion people downloaded his Beatles/Jay Z mashup the Grey Album on Grey Tuesday (Feb 24, 2004)? Yep. That's crazy.
