I have, at long last, completed the uplode of my iPod. I started about January 2nd. It's now the 29th. w'oh. So 4010 songs, 15.5 days worth of music, and 15 gigs later, I've completed this project. Now to take on the next.

I wanted to update my last entry with the comment that Seattle just won their playoff game.
Seattle 20
Washington 10

Unfortunately my entry disappeared.

The most of the entry was about the iPod. Okay, the iPod has been taking up lots of my free time. So that's what I'll post about.

So far I have over 100 albums loaded and I've used 4 and a half gigs. I own about 400 CDs, so I figure I'll use 20 of the 30 gigs available to load my entire collection. Yikes.

So I've stopped picking and choosing from my audio file and I'm just loading everything. With it in the computer I can do fast searches and sorts, I can create play lists, and I can decide which albums need to just go away. This is so cool!

What's on my mind now is a Norwescon Playlist. OOOO! I can do [ profile] miko2 like things and create play disks of various themes. Though I think my music is a rather selective taste. Mark once said that they once had to play Cheap Trick on full volume on the car stereo when going home from visiting me one weekend. That was just to purge and cleans the pallet.

My free time for the past few days has been eaten up by loading the iPod. It's also been an interesting excursion through my music library. I've been playing things I haven't played in a long time. There are some things that I may cull and other things that I'll keep for "oddness" reasons. What's fun is that I'm finding the time to listen to it because I'm loading it. And, as I am wont [see [ profile] genebreshears? =^_^= ] to do, I've been reading a lot more. I tend to read while I have music playing. ...or, and this is more fun, I tend to be creative, as in write or draw. That hasn't happened yet, but I fully expect it to.

At this point the iPod says I have a 1.5 days of music contained in 591 songs. I've filled 2 gigs and I have 28 gigs to go. That will eventually turn out to be three weeks of music, 24 hours a day. WEEE! Gimmy gimmy.

I mentioned yesterday that I figured out how to shuffle in one file. Now that I've figured it out I'm having more fun ignoring it. So far I've had in this order;

Veronica Mars Soundtrack: I Hear the Bells
Sting: We work the Black Seam
Bruce Mitchall: Zone II
Nausicaa Soundtrack: Interchange With Ohmu
Peter Buffett: Hard Reflections
Key the Metal Idol Soundtrack: I'll be There for You [Japanese]
Spirited Away Soundtrack: Kaonashi [No Face]
Colin Chin: The Belly of the Beast
Disney's Happiest Celebration on Earth: It's a Small World
Radio Sunnydale: Stop Thinking About It

AND MY BRAIN DIDN'T MELT!!! Even on hearing "It's a Small World"! [Right now it's playing "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow". I'm afraid my brain may melt on this one.]

As I load more odd disks it's going to be even more eclectic. What's more fun about this shuffle is it tells me what it's playing. When I played the six disk CD player on random I lost track of what songs came from where. Now I don't lose track, and I can back track through it's randomness!
