I bought a CD today. It was a little bit strange. I can’t remember the last time I bought an actual compact disc. I’m sure this isn’t the first one I’ve bought since I moved to LA seven years ago, but I know that since I got my iPod the number of CDs I’ve purchased

Griffin Reflect iPod Case

A week or so ago I found a link to the Griffin Mirrored Chrome Finish iPod case on Dan’s site. Anything that beautiful must be mine. I ordered one immediately and it arrived last night. The previous case I had — Agent18‘s video-shield — was awesome, to be sure. After a year and a quarter,

Please End This Song

iPod Shield

If you got a black 60gb video iPod for Christmas — like I did — then you need to get one of Agent18‘s video-shields. I’ve tried quite a few iPod cases in the last two or three years and this one is the best yet. It certainly has the best screen protection. You kind of

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.
