I don't even fight it anymore. I was over at Groove Addict, dinking around looking for Whitfield-era Temptations stuff when I ran across a Ray Barretto cut (and LP download). Yeah, hot diggity, off I went. You know how that happens, one minute you're listing to one thing, that leads to another, and another, until a couple hours have been sucked right out of you. I know when it's time to throw my hands up, step away from the keyboard, and just go listen.
