nano, originally uploaded by scoobers

I'm so excited. Catheroo got one and when I saw it I knew I had to have it. Meet my new nano. Since I was stuck at home without a car I spent some time picking songs I want in the nano library.
Choosing iPod worthy songs is an important job. 8 gigs and so much music. During my obsessive arranging, rearranging, and creation of new play lists, I have discovered that songs fall into one of three categories during the selection process. And believe me... it's a process.

Here they are:
  • Category 1: Most Definitely Delete (what possessed me to pay money for and include this song in my library in the first place? i have no idea, i know they're awful, don't even ask.)
    • She Bangs by Will Hung
    • Shake It by Sakis
    • I'm Too Sexy by Right Said Fred
    • Let's Talk by The Revolting Cocks
    • Boom! I Got Your Boyfriend by MC Luscious
    • Dragostea Din Tei by Haiducii

  • Category 2: Consider Deleting (but when it comes down to it, I love this song even though it may be totally geeky, random, or so yesterday)
    • Driving My Life Away by Eddie Rabbit
    • Tonight by NKOTB
    • Supersonic by JJ Fad
    • Shy by Sarah Jessica Parker
    • Tarzan Boy by Baltimora
    • Bad Bad Leroy Brown by Jim Croche

  • Category 3: Must Keep ( because I would never, ever, in this lifetime consider deleting because it is absolutely the.BEST.song.EVER)
    • Gone by Montgoery Gentry
    • Beautiful Mess by Diamond Rio
    • Float On by Modest Mouse
    • Crazy by Gnarls Barkley
    • Creep by Radiohead
    • One Headlight by The Wallflowers
    • I Am the Walrus by Jim Carrey (yes, that Jim Carrey)
    • anything by Pink Floyd or The Beatles
    • this list could go on but I won't

After careful consideration and listening to (and watching) it again, I have moved Dragostea din Tei to Category 2. I can't help it. I like it. And I like dancing on my couch.

I want to see a pic with you dancing on the couch!! And FYI - the reason you bought that music in the first place? It was some memory that brought you back to a certain time and place.

Hope your car is getting better. Luv U!

OMG! I totally LOVE Creep. One of my all time favorites. First time I heard the unedited version I was sad. I like it as "so very special" I am such a prude you know. Great song. What about the Toadies, do you like them?
Oh and by the way... Slamming me in a blog, oooohhhh, I'm shaking! ;)

I love my little nano too! I have quite a few horrid songs on my iPod too, but some of them are guilty pleasures.

I read your words and you inspire me. I listen to your music and you enlighten me. I think your sister Laura is right; I just might have a crush on you. Either that or I'm a psychotic manic depressant who has just imprinted on you. Oh Lucky you!

Yea, that will help you sleep at night, huh!

Frank :)

PS: Case in point I love The Shins song you play on Myspace.

Oh I love my ipod too, but I could never fill it. I have the video one, and I keep thinking I should put movies on it and then when things are slow at work I can watch movies on the sly.
