Super Human Stowaway

So a teenager gets in a fight with his parents and runs away. “F you” he surely screams!

Fast forward, the kid wakes up in LA confused, disoriented, in police custody, and missing his parents.

Is this human evolution? Maybe we just pass out and ride…

They might even use Led Zeppelin to push the new higher quality, which is pretty exciting.

I bought a Pono player and it is supposed to play Apple’s ALAC’s (their version of FLAC), so more stores selling HD files is all good for me!
