Lots of Music

The other day, one of the guys at work was talking about using Rhapsody to expand the available music he could listen to. And I mentioned that I’m quite happy with the amount I have…plenty to keep me from getting bored and listening to the same thing all the time.

So, here’s an iTunes list meme I saw Cindy and Uncle Crappy post recently. Clearly I need to do some cleanup. Of course this list is way skewed because I had to rebuild my library after the hard drive in my Powerbook died. So I did my list on my desktop too, not quite as mis-arranged. Though I have a lot of synching to do to get things about the same. Someday I’ll write a program that will let you use a laptop as a portable media player such as an iPod and check out some songs from the master drive.
