I would pay large amounts of money if there was some way for you to remotely choose for me the songs I listen to throughout the day. Your taste, sir, is impeccable.

I feel cheated and lied to.

I thought I could trust you. That you would never steer me wrong. So I download all the songs you recommended that I didn't already have and listened to them as I ran errands today.

Now, imagine me falling to the floor, withering in pain in the middle of my favorite dusty used bookstore. Country music was playing from my ipod, twanging in my ear, leaking poison into my body.

It took a whole album of The Kings of Leon to restore me back to my natural health.

You should have warned me.
