Magnatune · I was pok­ing around the iTunes ra­dio sta­tions look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle more stim­u­lat­ing than the usu­al brain goo, and gave “Magnatune Re­nais­sance and Baroque” a try. It’s aw­ful­ly good mu­sic, with the reg­u­lar in­ter­rup­tions by the mu­si­cians plug­ging their record­ings on­ly mild­ly ir­ri­tat­ing. And the in­ter­rup­tions worked, con­vinc­ing me to vis­it Mag­natune on­line, whose mot­to is: We’re a record la­bel. But we’re not evil.

This verges on be­ing a WMD, Weapon of Men­tal Destruc­tion; some­one get Don Rums­feld on the case. On the up­side, it can dis­tract a 4½-year-old for a re­mark­ably long time. Grown-ups, of course, are far too so­phis­ti­cat­ed to blow a whole evening on this thing; or at least to ad­mit it.
