the things you get to keep

When I used to stand around in the record store, trying to decide between Klemperer Conducts Wagner and Plastic Surgery Disasters, my long-suffering mother would roll her eyes and say "Live a little!". (She did that a lot, and she was buying.) Then she would patiently explain that music is something you will always have, so money spent on it is never wasted.

So to prove Ma's thesis in a way she may not have imagined, here's an article from the Guardian on the issue of music and dementia, and here's an interesting project in the US which gives people something useful to do with their old iPods that's way better than packing them off to a landfill in West Africa.

Whatever they find to put on mine, they are going to need the 160G one...
