So, I have all this music I bought, and I find myself listening to rotations of the same things every few weeks. I decided that I paid for all these damn CDs at some point, so I'm going to listen to something I haven't in a long while.

Today's album:

That's a toughie. In general I don't listen to full albums, and through my Parkinson's-like skip ability I usually hit a song from all the albums worth listening to frequently enough. For having 7000 songs.

Also, anyone care to wager on the over/under odds of posts before we get to something from the past 10 years, let alone this millenium?

I broke out Dark Side of the Moon recently - it's been a *long* time since I'd listened to it.

My iPod has made "old albums I haven't heard in forever" a non-term.

I keep mine on shuffle all the time. I hear it all. (The good stuff anyway)

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Don't forget Wishbone Ash! There was a fark link a couple of weeks ago to a site full of old Hipgnosis covers, and i grabbed that as my desktop pic (and also fired up Argus in iTunes). I was with a client later who peered at my desktop, paused, and then launched into a rendition of 'Time Was'. Guess that dates us both.
You see, my friends, pirates are the key. - thalo
