Damn, I love iTunes.

I realize that is neither profound nor timely, considering iTunes is hardly cutting edge technology.

But as I was driving today and listening to the local classical music station (WRR–the first radio station in the Great State of Texas), and as I heard the perfect mood music for a scene/chapter I’m writing, I gave a happy sigh because I knew all I had to do is go download it, and then I’d be set.

The music in question? Night on Bald Mountain

Not to be rude or anything, but this guy really does look like the kind of guy you would expect to write Night on Bald Mountain, doesn’t he?

Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (1839 – 1891)

What music have you written to lately?

My iPod died. It MIGHT have something to do with the fact that I’ve dropped it a couple several oh hell I’ve lost count how many times. Which means they are very tough, especially in the nice rubbery case I have it in, because it still lasted over three years.

All I listen to are audiobooks and some music. Not thousands of songs. I don’t know how many songs. But I mainly listen to audiobooks.

And a cute little green Nano would be easy to wear around my neck.

I don’t care about video.

But the Resident Storm Chaser is absolutely positively definitely convinced I need the video iPod.

And now that I really think about it, I’m not sure 4GB is enough.

My old iPod was 20 GB and it never was more than maybe 1/3 full, but that always included several audiobooks that I wasn’t listening to any more but just hadn’t gotten around to removing….

Anybody got any experience with this decision? Regrets?

You, too, can be a chick magnet.

First there was the hipster.

Now there’s the hipster-shuffle.
