The album costs $7 to download and Cera says some people have paid. "There is a kind of pride in making money on something you did totally by yourself. It's like busking or something. It's honest."

The album, created using GarageBand software, is a part of technology that Cera can get behind. One he can't is obvious whenever he gets on a subway in his new home: cameraphones. He says a lot of folks secretly take his picture.

"The world is just becoming this photo booth in a weird way," he says. "The only way to get used to it is to come to terms with it. You can't fight it."

Cera bemoans the "the diluting of experiences" that happens with the endless snapping of photos. He says it's depressing to go to a museum and see people go from artwork to artwork, snapping away at each. "You're in front of it. Why are you already nostalgic about it?" he asks.

Or people who insist on recording everything, including concerts. "When are you going to watch that? Sitting around at your home and feeling sad about your life?" he jokes.

Hey, doesn't he already sound like a New Yorker?
