So in case you missed it, the Spotify Premium account that I’d been tricked into getting (curse you, 30-day free trials!) was cancelled a few months ago because a man from Canada stole my debit card and tried to buy $500 worth of groceries, and so I had to cancel my card. Which thus ended any recurring charges I had, including Spotify. So I was in the middle of a conundrum: now free from paying $10 a month, do I re-activate my account so I don’t have to listen to ads or instead spend this new $10 on something else, probably coffee? After a few months of increasingly annoying ads, I finally decided to buy Spotify Premium again. And here’s why: I was grooving to the xx real smoothly and quietly in my family’s kitchen, when halfway through the sparse sounds of heartbreak, a really loud and obnoxious Trojan ad started playing out of nowhere. Wow, Spotify, way to harsh my mellow. And as the sound of Trojan man echoed through the house, I thought to myself, “Bitch, don’t kill my vibe” and immediately took out my debit card.
So that is the major music purchase I made in December.
