Mork to Wilco

So... I got me a 4 gig ipod nano last night. Right away I wanted to download my new Wilco cd and stuff. Oh... and btw son Isaac... the dvd that came with that cd is awesome!!! You'll have to watch it sometime. I can't believe all the freakin gear they have. Thanks. And a thank-you to daughter Carrie for the case that fit perfectly around my nano. :) They were kinda pricey. As was the itrip, which I snagged so's I can play and charge in the car.

Anyway... so I'm trying to get this nanonano thing to work... and I might as well be talking to Mork from Ork. At first it copied down all my itunes stuff on my laptop - but I noticed that some of the things I'd burned weren't on there (including the two albums I most wanted to listen to). So I imported the files or whatever... and then it just randomly mixed the songs amongst everything else. Then I did something else and it removed all the other songs EXCEPT the new ones I just put on, but they're still randomly intertwined. Man... this itunes is taking me some time to get used to. So I downloaded itunes on the home computer. I think we're getting there.

Now I've got me some Wilco Sky Blue Sky, Bob Dylan Modern Times, U2's Joshua Tree, and Danny Bowman's Sad Song. I may do some more before I leave.

Lemme tell you somethin... this is too cool. It's like listening to music for the first time all over again. It's been so long since I've just closed my eyes and had it all to myself. I mean, like real music and everything. Not just the normal noises in my head. I could get addicted to this. I'll probably be totally worthless now. Sorry.

I don't think the Joshua tree has ever sounded this good. Dang, I'm almost tearing up...
