i finally used the itunes gift certificate i got from blingo. here's what i got, and why i can't stop listening to my ipod (especially at work in the afternoon, when i am rolling pasta or typing the menus):
new shoes:::paolo nutini (actually free from itunes last week)
today has been okay:::emiliana torrini
not going anywhere:::keren ann
naked as we came:::iron & wine
beautiful world:::colin hay
it might not be new to you, but it's new to me, and it makes me really happy.
