After having my 20 gb original generation iPod for the last 5 years, I decided to finally step it up. So I headed over to the Mac store at Crabtree and went all out and got the 80 gb version. I have a lot of music, over a 100 gb worth (the BMG memberships in high school and college were just obscene). So I couldn’t even get all the music on there, but I did put about 65 gb worth and left it open for new stuff down the road. I also have all my audiobooks like David Sedaris and the Bob Dylan Chronicles on there. Along with my language audiobooks for Chinese and Spanish. Also, now I have videos like David Chappelle and the Office, just in case I am ever on a plane or just bored somewhere. Its loaded.
A few months ago I used to have a wildly popular segment on this blog with my Daily Tunes from the randomness that is the shuffle feature on the ipod. Unfortunately, in recent months my tape deck in my car (which the ipod played thru) met its untimely end, so the tunes were no more on the way to work. The new pod was purchased with a new Griffin iTrip FM transmitter which does the trick nicely. I got one of the auto ones so I don’t have to mess around with any software or anything. The tunes have returned. And there was much rejoicing.
This week I am determined to listen to some albums I haven’t listened to in a while, and decided to share:
Monday – Sly & the Family Stone – Fresh
Tuesday – David Bowie – Aladdin Sane
Wednesday – Neil Young – Zuma
Thursday – Whiskeytown – Faithless Street
Friday – The Velvet Underground – The Velvet Underground & Nico
Sly was sublime today.
