New laptop, new music. At least, that's the plan for The Ford, as he subscribes to a major search engine's on-demand music service.

Good stuff overall, but there's an inestimable sadness that comes over The Ford when he sees how some of the top-20 songs are being spelled these days...

For example:
"I'm N Luv (with a stripper)"
"Lean wit it, rock wit it"

Apparently, artists are being charged by the letter for song titles.

Sigh. Can we just give the language back to the British? Sure, they can't speak it worth a damn, but they'll at least keep the written version sacred. (Ordinarily, Canadians would be The Ford's first choice, what with the clean accents, but their predilection toward inserting "U"s into words, and their support of Avril Lavigne's "Sk8er Boi" are worrisome in their own rights.
