iTunes, and now Netflix, are going to cause me to go broke. I have no willpower to resist their lure. With these two resources, I feel as if I have the world at my fingertips.

It wasn't enough that I went to Best Buy yesterday and picked up some Farscape DVDs, a Dresden Dolls cd, and a Snow Patrol cd. (In my defense, I had previously ordered the Farscape DVDs and Dresden Dolls cd through Amazon, but the package got lost in the mail so I never received them.) Today I purchased Regina Spektor's new cd off of iTunes. I heard one of her songs the other day while at a bar, and I loved it. Her style reminds me slightly of the Dresden Dolls. And I then recalled [profile] barilace raving about her cd, so I bought it. I'm listening to it now, and it's fabulous!!

On top of buying the cd, I joined Netflix today. I'm sure I'm one of the last ones in this world to have discovered the beauty of Netflix, but I am so psyched. I already have Season 1 of The Office, Season 4 of Farscape and Seasons 1, 2 and 3 of Scrubs in my queue. I'm convinced that paying $10 a month to rent all these DVDs will be much cheaper in the long run than buying all these DVDs for myself. Now I'm trying to rack my brain for every movie or TV show I've ever wanted to watch, but haven't. Help me! Give me suggestions!

Oh, and one other question. Who on my flist has TiVo or some sort of DVR service? I'm seriously considering entering the age of the DVR, preferably before the new TV season starts in September. But the roomie and I have figured that regardless of whether we use TiVo or just get a DVR through our cable company, it's going to cost us at least an extra $20 a month. So, for those of you have a DVR, what do you use? Do you love it? Is it worth the money you spend for it? Is one kind better than another? I'm technologically stunted, I fear, so I'd appreciate any info anyone cares to share.
