The Sound of Silence
I’m a big fan of iTunes. I think it’s got a great interface, the software is slick, and I can find tunes for a buck. That’s a great deal, IMHO.
However, I ran across a link that is an iMix of songs that are for sale on iTunes that are blank! The fact that empty tracks would be for sale just never crossed my mind. Granted, iTunes works by automation in a lot of places, and I’m sure that’s why there are empty tracks available for sale there, as they’re part of full albums.
But if you have iTunes 4.5 installed, you should click this link. It will open up an iMix link I found showing a bunch of blank tracks. If you vote for the iMix, it will get rated higher, and that would be fairly amusing to see. I didn’t start this idea, but I really enjoy it, so I’m going to try and get this iMix pushed higher. :)
Something else amusing, some of those silent tracks are marked as explicit. Explicit silence. Something very comical about that. :)
Here’s another link with a story that goes into a little greater detail about all these empty tracks on iTunes. I suggest you read it. Gotta love technology sometimes. ;)
