Jack Johnson: Sleep Through The Static

Sleep_through_the_staticWe’ve mentioned Jack Johnson many times over the years.

I was surprised this week, when not one, but 4 copies of Sleep Through The Static arrived in the mail from Amazon.com (AMZN).

I thought it was an ordering glitch, but actually, its a bit of a flaw in their wish lift system. I ordered a copy for myself, and several of you sent it as a holiday present. But because the CD wasn’t released until last week, I never removed it from the wish list.

You would figure that Amazon would/should pull a wish list item once its been ordered and sent to the wish list holder’s address.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to listening to this — thank you for the gift(s)!
