A while back I got an email from napster, where I had a bunch of music I’d bought.
It said something about something they were going to change and something I needed to do to keep from losing my songs. I was on vacation, and I didn’t read it carefully, kind of scanned it, and I didn’t understand it and I didn’t understand what I was supposed to do and I didn’t want to fool with it, so I decided I wouldn’t really lose any songs and that I didn’t need to worry about it.
Later, when I call napster to complain about the songs I’d lost, they said they had warned me. I don’t use napster anymore.
(I didn’t really lose too many songs because I’d burned a lot of them to cd’s, which is probably what they were telling me to do in the first place. )
This is denial at work. I tend to do it fairly often. It is one of the least effective psychological defenses.
the book is coming along. i will update you soon on the progress.
