Sometimes it seems like everybody's trying to sell you something. It's not their job to remind you that the best things in life are free, but we can take it upon ourselves to do that right here.
Fresh air. Sunshine. Cool, clear water. We should all be able to enjoy these beautiful basics without having to ante up.
That said, there's plenty of goods and services out there worth the asking price. Use your purchasing power wisely, but don't deny yourself a slice of the finer things.
And what could be finer than music that moves you or makes you want to move. For examples of where to find such, see below.
