My iPod Has Issues – Part 9

16 Oct

I am not feeling all that creative this afternoon. Today, it is dreary outside. Yesterday, my stepdaughter had her tonsils taken out. She’s in pain, and that makes us all feel bad. On top of that, I had to get a physical this morning. I could write about the history conference that I attended, but, like I said, I am not feeling all that creative.Not Creative

That’s why I am going to take the easy way out and explore the inner workings of my iPod. You guys know how it goes. The iPod gets put on shuffle, and we see what comes out of it.

My iPod Has Issues – Part 3

9 Mar

It has been a while since we delved into the inner sanctum of my iPod. In Part 1 of this ongoing series, I explained why hardly anyone understood how any self-respecting iPod would allow itself to be filled with the music I chose and provided an example of 20 selections from the list. With Part 2, I found myself short on time and needing a post. So, I took the easy way out and made another list of 20 songs.

Tonight, I find myself in similar circumstances but with a few additions. It is late, and I have a few things to do before retiring to bed. However, I feel the need to publish a post and explain a few things in the process. Since the last iPod episode, I have been exposed to some new music. Some of came from my continued attempt to download all 500 of the greatest songs as chosen by Rolling Stone. Others came from Justified, my favorite television show. More came from my fellow blogger, the Snob. And, a little came from my girlfriend and her daughter. Although, I must admit that I still have to alter my taste somewhat to fully appreciate their stuff.

With that being said, here is another list of 20 songs from my iPod. To get this, I hit random and record the first 20 entries that pop up.
