Okay, so Ben Folds’ new record drops on Tuesday. I pre-ordered it today. I bought my first CD in over a year. I realized that I’ve bought plenty of albums, but I do almost everything digital now.
But, this… this is a physical CD. With a physical book. I bought it for the book, really. It’s a collection of four short stories by Nick Hornby, who penned all of the record’s lyrics. I’m excited for this. I’m a big fan of Hornby, and I look forward to reading them.
And then I realized that this is the first physical book I’ve bought since June. I buy books digitally now, as well.
It feels weird. It feels comfortable. It feels like 2006.
