Just what exactly is an MP3?


You might think Wiggins is Mr. Computers, what with all of his Gaslampball posts and all, but here's the thing: Wiggins is kind of computer illiterate. Wiggins will even admit that his mom sometimes has to help him get to the right spot to type his fan posts. If it wasn't for Wiggins' mom, you wouldn't get to enjoy what Wiggins has to type.

Anyway, today Wiggins went to Target to buy a new CD and their selection was pitiful. Wiggins was going to see if they had any Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, Iron Maiden... basically any good metal. So Wiggins asked the Target employee, "What gives?"

Here was his response: "People aren't buying CDs these days. They're just downloading music."

Okay, folks, Wiggins doesn't live in a cage. He knows you can download music. But isn't that illegal? Wiggins thought so. So he asked the Target guy, "Can't you get arrested for suggesting Wiggins downloads music?"

His response: "Just go to iTunes or Amazon and buy an MP3. It's totally legal."

Apparently there are all kinds of MP3 on the Internet. Maybe Wiggins can even get a song that's been stuck in his head since he was a kid. The lyrics go something like "Right field, watching the daisies grow." Does anyone know that song?

But Wiggins also found out you have to have a credit card to buy an MP3. Should Wiggins just wait until Capital One sends him another one (he's already maxed out all of his credit cards) or should Wiggins get one of you to buy him the MP3 instead? Wiggins is good for the money. Honest.

Also, just what the heck is an MP3, anyway? Like, is it some new type of CD? How do I get it from the Internet into my CD player? HELP.
