The current spelling in Ireland is "Costelloe." However, they do pronounce it "Cost-low" and it has also been pronounced 'Cos-TELL-oe' in other parts of the world. The original Irish language version of "Costelloe" is "O Coisdealbha." I've also seen "O Choisdealbha," so I'm not sure which is correct...yet.
Maybe I'll change my name back to its original version. Hmm.

How can one truly trust? In such an increasingly cynical world, where does one start? Perhaps eliminating greed would be a good start.
"Self trust is the essence of heroism."

"Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservations."
~ Elton Trueblood
"Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody."
~ Agatha Christie
"Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police."

Alright Apple, what's going on? Bring on iTunes Australia! There are over 20 million people waiting anxiously at their computers. :)
Look at these articles published October 2004 and May 2005:
It appears to be a major record label holding up the launch. I say launch now and delay any music tied to that specific label. They can get it up later. There are thousands of other artists waiting for their music to be available to fans. I don't think customers would get ticked if some music was missing (as long as they knew it would be available later). At least they'd have something to start with...instead you give them nothing. Crazy.
Personally, my fans are buying in my online store (and paying the hefty shipping charge) or on other digital networks such as Magnatune. Lost says Apple, lost sales...
John Mayer's (John Mayer Trio) new iTunes exclusive single, "Who do you think I was," is very kickin'. Hey Australia, want me to hum it for you and post it up on my site?

This is some of the information on how the song "Stardust" came to be. Very similar to how I came up with "Semester Days," off my new album.
When he mentions "university," he's talking about Indiana University (Bloomington). Go Hoosiers!

With quite a bit more storage compared to the iPod Shuffle, a color display and click wheel, the sleek new iPod nano (that will easily fit in your pocket) is a great value (just a bit more than the 1GB iPod Shuffle).
Apple's genius has also just released a portable iTunes phone...a mobile phone called the ROKR (from Motorola). It easily synchs up with your iTunes application. Very cool. Cingular is the exclusive carrier for the ROKR, and the phone will be able to store up to 100 songs at at time.

"Those of little faith mistake local cloud cover for general darkness. Keeping spiritually intact results in our keeping precious perspective by seeing "things as they really are."
