Ways to spend *lots* of money

Oh, dear heavens. I just got around to checking out CD Baby, having been reminded about it by mikekn.

Wow. Big site, with scads of independent albums. They make it dangerously easy to wander around, browse, find stuff that's like what you want (including a somewhat offbeat collection of musical "flavors" and a strong "sounds like" feature), listen to selected tracks off of albums (full two-minute excerpts, rather than the puny 30 seconds I get with iTunes), and then buy them. I wound up buying four albums by people I've never heard of before (found through random wanderings), plus an Ookla the Mok disc.

I have a nasty feeling that these people are going to wound my wallet rather deeply...
