Such a great show last night. Musically, at least. I keep saying it, but there’s just a ton of great music out there right now. It finally got to the point where I impulse bought a new iPod last night. My 3.5 year old 60GB one just wasn’t cutting it anymore. It still works like brand new–I don’t know how, I don’t treat it very well–but I need more space!
For the past year or so, it’s been an hour long process every time I want to add music to it because I have to sit there and really think about what music I can take off and be okay not having on me at any given time. It’s really hard! And yeah, I know you’re thinking “who the hell needs that much music?” Well, I don’t know what I’m going to want to listen to later on! It could be anything! At any given time, I can really only have less than 25% of my music on me. And with all of the new stuff I’ve been trying to listen to lately, it’s hard to find space to keep adding things while keeping all of the old stuff as well. Sure, there is plenty of music that I have that I’ll never want to listen to and can be fine without, but that only takes me down to maybe 160GB which is still more than the 120GB worth of space on the new iPod–seriously, Apple, why did you get rid of the 160GB model?
This has been helped a little lately by SimplifyMedia. It streams my entire music collection over the internet so I can access anything from my iPhone or from my computer at work. On a computer, it’s not too bad, but my collection is so big that my iPhone has a lot of trouble handling it to the point where the app is barely worth messing with at all. That part was a little disappointing.
Whatever, I like music and it’s only getting worse as I decided lately that I need to get more into jazz, classical, and hip hop. Three genres that I really enjoy, but have a very limited amount of. I’ve been trying to beef up in these areas, but that just makes finding the space for it even harder. And as for finding time to listen to everything, that’s just impossible!
My life is so hard.
But anyway, here’s what I played on the radio show last night. Like I said, great show.
