My First Legal Digital Download

Ride the Divide Soundtrack
Ride the Divide Soundtrack

I’m proud of myself. Last night, for the first time, I bought digital music. Yes, you read that right — bought. I didn’t torrent it. I didn’t Frostwire it. I paid for it with my credit card and downloaded the music legally. And it felt good.

So what did I buy? Well, I bought the soundtrack of the film that inspired me to do my four-day Mindoro bikepacking trip – Ride the Divide. I didn’t have the songs with me in my iPhone when I was doing the ride, but they were playing in my head the whole time. Now it’s in my playlist, and I’ll be listening to it for a long time.

Wouldn’t it be great if iTunes opened its online music store in the Philippines?
