i really love music, and that said, i really, *really* love my ipod as it can be easily played through my car stereo with a simple little cable. that said, i do still enjoy listening to CDs from time to time -- but i tend to copy them onto my ipod and create playlists with titles such as "driving to work", "driving home from work", "pilates short", "pilates long", "i hate everyone", "music to get funky", etc.
i do have a very varied collection, and often put my music on shuffle when i ride in, which means i will be listening to kanye west, and then comes tim mcgraw, followed by feist and then the barenaked ladies. it's fun! particularly when my few 80s hip hop tunes are intermingled with, say, enya.
but today, i have a new playlist with some new (well, probably not new, but new to me) artists. i have a collection of great original music by the piano players at Jellyrolls in Orlando (on the Boardwalk at Disney), but also, some very fun, happy upbeat music by the kilwein family tree-o.
i'd highly recommend it if you like music from say.. BNL or the mighty mighty bosstones (which is who they remind me of, although that could just be because of the great horns). check them out here or here. their lyrics are clever and fun and their music is great up-tempo beats that are really original.
So many books...
