I’ve given in. My will has been broken. I’ve succomed to organizing my music in itunes. I got a program that will auto update my library from a set folder (no matter how buggy it is) and last night I went through and moved all the music I lost from my drive crash off of my ipod on to my computer. I retagged my hundreds of Led Zeppelin mp3’s and Misfits and Depeche Mode and saw just how much stuff I lost (all of my Acetone and most of my Massive Attack, etc.) Musicbrainz helped a lot on that, but now it’s mostly showing up correctly in itunes with a few exceptions.
This is the real fucking dawning of the age of aquarius, make no mistake you hollow headed mofo’s. I’ll be able to make a playlist of all my most recently acquired music instead of adding it to my ipod by dragging and dropping and then forgetting that I added it about 5 seconds after I disconnect the thing and never remember what it was called or who it’s by. I can sync playcounts and all that bullshit and make smart playlists and roll them up and stuff them directly up my corn hole. Can you do that?!? Probably, but this is a life changing event for me, so back the fuck up.
ION (In other news – the new feature of my blog posts! This is the inaugural entry! Exciting, right?) there has been a female duck that has been in my backyard for the last two mornings, quacking away and freaking out my cats. I wonder if she’s missing another duck or something, because it doesn’t seem normal for my backyard to be used as a duck landing/sounding pad. I also like to think that she’s just stopping by to say hello and good morning, too. Maybe that’s the case.
