Well, it begins...

Another day, and I'm still not done the essay on Brazil (thought I did get more than a page written). Seriously, Prof. Matheson should never have said to me "oh, take whatever extra time you need on this", because that's exactly what I'm doing!

Anyway, the real reason for this exciting late night post is that my dad got his new laptop today, which means that I've been able to start loading up my iPod which has sat on my desk for the last month! It's exciting. I've loaded 10 albums so far (totally 145 tracks) and I've barely used even 5% of the capacity. Which means I should be able to get close to 5000 songs onto this thing by the end. The only bad part is that this is distracting me from so many other valuable things in life. Gah!

Anyway, the first 10 albums I have on my iPod are as follows:

The Beatles - Past Masters, Vol. 1
The Beatles - Past Masters, Vol. 2
The Beasties Boys - Hello Nasty
Music from the Motion Picture Ocean's Twelve
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
U2 - Actung Baby
Gwen Stefani - Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
The Thrills - So Much For The City
Bran Van 3000 - Discosis
Coldplay - Parachutes

"cigarettes & alcohol" is one of the best oasis songs....

have you seen live forever? the brit pop documentary? it's not entirely brilliant, but i dug it.

I have all but 2 of those albums on my ipod. Bet you can guess which 2.

I've been meaning to see Live Forever for sometime. At the very least, i'm expecting some good footage of the Gallagher bros. being dicks.

they are surprisingly docile...
and damon albarn is surprisingly defensive. though, maybe not surprisingly.


there is some lovely footage of the stone roses as well.

Wow, I'd love to have an ipod...I don't know if you like this kind of stuff, but may I suggest the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack? It's excellent stuff!

Ewan: Well since you don't like U2, I'm guessing the first album you don't have on your's is "Achtung Baby". As for the second I'm guessing it's Bran Van 3000 "Discosis."

Most people only know them from that song "Drinking In LA", which isn't really anything like their second album. This one has that song with Curtis Mayfield ("Astounded") and is a whole lot better. As a fan of electronica and such, I highly recommend it. I should let you give it a listen some time.

Kailie: I did like "Phantom of the Opera", but I will probably go with the recording of the original London cast instead of the film version.

Believe it or not i actually have that Bran Van album, i bought it in elementary school. It's not very good at all, but I wouldn't mind checking some of that disc out.

And what's Damon Albarn defensive about? I guess maybe i don't know enough about Blur's history other than the music.

the old oasis-blur feud...

i think the fans cared much less about it than the bands. as i dig both.

something akin the to the n*sync-backstreet boys feud...are you an n*sync fan or a backstreet boys fan? which, i suppose, is a bad analogy. because when i was a younger lass i did care about this particular "feud". and didn't dig both....

I've never thought of Oasis and Blur as honing in on similar territory, but i'm sure those egos were so big they were bound to clash. I too love both, but in different ways.

So were you an N Sync or Backstreet girl?

backstreet...

the little bits of knowledge i still have about this band are a tad frightening.

nobody needs to still remember their middle names. i'm not sure anyone ever needed to remember that, though.

I think we all have our embarrassing past obsessions; in fact, some of us still have them. And anyway, you can't underestimate the importance of useless bits of information. You don't know when they will become useful. At least, I'm hoping they'll become useful, because if they don't, I'm wasting a lot of brain space.
