    music box sets

    i don't think these matter to a single person i know in real life, but they've always been, and continue to be, extremely important to me. i'm defining 'box set' here as a collection with four or more 'discs', be they physical or digital. i'm not interested in those that simply contain various...

    i tried watching wall-e for the first time the other night. since i've heard so many great things over the years, i was very excited and had pretty high expectations. hate to say this, but i shut it off about halfway through because it just wasn't doing anything for me. i always feel this way...
