Argh! I really, really hate MusicMatch tech support! I got another e-mail from them after about a week or more and this time it’s another tech support guy and he again wants the same info that I gave their original tech support guy (and which is already present at the bottom of the e-mail if he’d just bothered to read it …) I don’t know whether the fact that I use different e-mail addresses each time I write to them (don’t ask – it’s the whole work vs. home thing …) contributes to it but I’d think that since I quote the reference number in all my e-mails and the entire history of my communications with MusicMatch is quoted along with each e-mail, they shouldn’t be asking me the same questions over and over again! Makes me wonder whether paying for software is worth is at all at times like these …

Watched the AMA’s (American Music Awards) last night for a while. I played this game of “who should win and who will win” <g> and was surprised at how accurate my predictions were – except in a few instances where I was proved wrong – or rather, my “should win” artist actually won :p Incidentally, was it just me or did anybody else think that Cher seemed to be going for the Madonna look? Her singing is just as good as ever but I really thought that the look didn’t suit her …

I was surprised to learn that they have a new movie version of “The Count of Monte Cristo” coming out starring Guy Pearce and Jim Caviezel. While I enjoyed quite a few of Alexandre Dumas’ works, “The Count of Monte Cristo” has always held a special significance that I can’t explain. I’ve never grown tired of reading the book in it’s many versions (and even different languages …) or of watching movie and TV adaptations of it. I still remember the older movie adaptation starring Tony Curtis – boy, that does date me doesn’t it? Anybody remember Tony Curtis? Anyway, I’m looking forward to this movie version of “The Count of Monte Cristo” – hopefully, it’ll prove to be really good …
