I have so much stuff to post about... none of which I am posting about as I've been editing the same batch of photos for two days and they seem to have eaten my brain and stripped away my ability to function (or that could have just been Twilight. Which I did see and can never un-see)

ANYWAYS

this post has a point. That point is Music. Music for y'all to have and enjoy.

I have a wonderful flist that posts all kinds of fantastic music and seems to like a WIDE variety of things, so I thought I'd repay the favor and add to that variety. I think it was [livejournal.com profile] karmicunderpath who posted a link to a foreign music meme and I guess you could consider this in that line of thought.

I've been pestering [livejournal.com profile] regala_electra for a few days now about watching a few YouTube videos the boy showed me whilst I was in Pittsburgh. I'm supposed to e-mail them to her but they're full of hot scottishness so I'm being nice and sharing.

Yay! New iPod!

Although technically the exact same as my old iPod, but hopefully without the craptastic clicking hard drive. The new one had me wondering though - when I was trying to upload my music. Had to try to upload my songs 10 times before it actually did it. It's like - I am a music idiot, I do not have that much music, it's not that hard to upload these songs! Grrr.

My computer on the other hand still has the futzy screen problem. I'm told by the Apple store that it would take a week to fix it. A week in terms of my unemployment and the constant nagging of my parents is an eternity and cannot be done. Plus, a week with no internet, and nothing to do since I don't have a job would probably cause my head to implode.

But hey, new iPod!
A miraculous thing happened last night.

I opened my ipod shuffle. Yes, folks. The shuffle that has been sitting in its box, unopened, since December was finally put to use.

I even used it on my way to work, joining the multitude of people walking around in an ipod induced haze... I'm not sure how I feel about this.

I am clearly not in danger of losing my "music moron" title anytime soon though. I still seem to floor the roommate and friends on a regular basis with my extreme LACK of knowledge. I actually have a list of things I'm not allowed to do or wear, since doing so would be an affront to all that is musical and good in this world and would cause all manner of bad things to happen... apocalypse type stuff apparently (or maybe the roommate says that because she's been watching far too much Supernatural lately... hmmm).

Is it wrong that I'm somewhat proud of the fact that I have no clue what's going on, or has gone on, in the world of music and take such delight in it? Probably.

Ah well, I'm a U2 fan so that prevents the roomie from beating me senseless, and really, that's all that matters when it comes to roommates- not getting beaten senseless (or waking up in the middle of the night because a former roommates boyfriend is meowing. But that's another story altogether and it's one that's a little too disturbing to contemplate.)
