I think I’m one of the very few people left who still loves buying the physical CD form of a new album. I can’t even say it’s for the CD if I’m being totally honest. It’s for the booklet. The stupid little booklet that comes on the left hand side when you open up the CD. I love looking at the album artwork and reading the credits and the thank you’s the artist wrote inside. To me, it’s getting a little bit more of an insight into what they tried to create with the project as a whole.
Yesterday, One Direction’s new album came out so obviously I bought that one – the deluxe version nonetheless. (Which by the way cost me an arm, a leg and part of my soul. Now I know how they make so much money.) I also bought the new Katy Perry CD finally, it’s so beautiful. It’s an actual prism on the front which reminds me of holographic Pokemon cards. I’ve already been listening to both albums for quite some time now through Spotify and leaks, but I love going out and buying the actual album if it’s something I really enjoy. They’ve got to make their money too so I don’t mind supporting them by buying their CD and little booklet.
Today I get to go see the one and only Justin Timberlake at Staples Center. I’m skipping yoga because I’m pretty sure I’m going to get an intense cardio workout just by dancing to his set. The moment he starts singing Senorita, I’m going to lose it.
