I have not bought enough music to want to listen to it exclusively. I actually like radio hosts that are more entertaining than I am. How difficult can it be?

Bypassing the mp3 issue, the problem there is the assumption that there actually is new music that I'd want to listen to.

I don't know if it would qualify with you, but Jerry Lee Lewis put out an album in 2014 called Rock And Roll Time, including a track of The Promised Land.

Anything that appears on Youtube can have it's audio extracticated with certain techniques.

I once dated a girl that drove a Metro. I drove it from NYC to Maryland and had never felt like less of a man until I drove that thang. And THAT carries some weight, coming from someone that drives a 26 y/o, Honda Civic.

I once took a road trip up Highway 99 in a clean little white Metro loaner, and got my personal best gas mileage [kilometerage?] ever! It had this green light on the dashboard that had you lug it up through the gears.

But I still prefer the pew-pew-pew sound of a rev-happy 36hp VW with the pea-shooter exhaust.

That's one of the hardest parts about the geo engines! I love the sound of a raw motor screaming with power...but I also love the environmental factor of e-vehicles, electric just rides so much smoother without the jolts.
