I love music... I mean, I really really love music. I am sad that I do not have music on this blog right now but I think the site that I was getting my music from gave me that nasty virus that made mucus come out of the all USB ports on my beloved laptop so I just erased it. I have been browsing around to find a new site to put music back on here and I think I found one. I have a date with it tonight and if I come away without any warts on my keyboard I will once again put music back on for your listening enjoyment. If you read this at work, your boss will love me. I have been planning a comeback tour since I deleted the last music selection.
Anyway, I have a love affair with music and therefore I love my iPod, and I am addicted to iTunes (just ask the little man in my laptop that balances my checkbook for me).
You may be surprised to find out that although I enjoy technology, I am technology challenged. I am like a Kindergartner when it comes to technology so I have to stay at a pace that I understand.
My iPod for instance is not a fancy-shmancy, watch movies, download State secrets or find a cure for cancer, type of iPod. It is just a little shuffle. Yep... that is all I need. I turn it on and it plays my music. I clip it to my belt loop and off I go dancing while I vacuum and scrub toilets. I am listening to it right now... Best I Ever Had by Vertical Horizon. Nice.
The only problem I have with my shuffle is that I cannot hook it up to anything that will successfully play in my van so I download music from iTunes and then I burn CDs to play in my van so although I have all of my favorite tunes on my little shuffle, I still have 4,574 CDs scattered throughout my van which drives my husband crazy because he is the ying to my yang and my yang really irritates his ying sometimes. But that is why he loves me... I have some crazy yang going on. Which reminds me of a song that I'll have to remember to burn tonight so I can listen to it in the van and think about my husband's ying.
Burning CDs also poses a problem for the little ears that I tote around town 23 hours out of the day. Not all of the music on my little shuffle is kid friendly (I can't help that Nickelback sings some songs that make my cheeks burn the color of crimson) so I have to color code my CDs that I burn. If you are ever in my van with me and I pull out a red CD, prepare your ears for some great music that may make you say "Phew, it is hot in here?" but if I put in a blue CD you should be Okay... and I only play the green ones when my parents are in town. Kids music is on pink CDs which sometimes get confused with the red CD and then my 14 year old looks at me and says "Mother! I can't believe you are listening to this!" and I ground myself to my bedroom for the rest of the day.
But my birthday is coming up so I think I may just have to move into first grade and update my iPod to something a little more van-friendly. Any suggestions? I don't want anything that I will have to be pushing buttons forever on and I don't want to download music videos or porn, I just want to listen to my music man. Just the tunes.
Music is my life. Without it I wouldn't have inspiration... it is my muse.
If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. Albert Einstein
So... shall we have a contest? Let me know what your favorite song of all time is and I will try my hardest to get it on this site. I will also pull out the Internet Random Generator thingy from the closet next to my fondue set and your comment may be chosen for a $20 iTunes card.
What a great giveaway don't you think?
You have until Sunday morning to fill me in on your music must-haves.
