And reading the reviews and specs did not help. The only two things that are keeping my credit card firmly in hand is a.) Child has camp, and it is the kind of camp I've always wanted to go to, and I feel it's more in line with parental duties to force my child to live my dreams and b.) well, money, and two cons this summer and c.)

But in every damn song, there's at least a ten second period of something that hits me. Damn them.
