I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late.
My five favorite ducks:
One of my favorite albums — Johnny Cash’s Live at Folsom Prison — was released on this date in 1968. “You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have […]
My five favorite Disney characters:
It’s difficult to choose or rank your five favorite songs by an artist that you love so much, but here’s a shot. I have quite a collection of Pink Floyd albums in iTunes, but all five of these are from The Wall.
I can’t tell you how many times as a teenager I laid on my bed, wearing my bright yellow Sony Sports Walkman headphones, and blasting this album into my brain from start to finish.
If you include solo albums by John, Paul, and George, and things like Wings and the Plastic Ono Band, I’ve got over five hundred tracks in my iTunes library that I consider the work of The Beatles. I love The White Album indescribably, but even I don’t want to hear Rocky Raccoon ten times in […]
“A well-composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter in any other way.”
My wife is pretty awesome. Baby It's Cold Outside – watch more funny videos
The only really annoying thing about the holidays is that most radio stations play the same ten or so songs over and over and over again. No matter how much you love the song, nobody wants to hear Baby, It’s Cold Outside five times in the same day. You’ve got plenty of Christmas music in […]
At my son’s winter sing-a-long this year they added a great verse I’d never heard to Jingle Bells: We’re going to the beach And playing in the sun. We haven’t seen an icicle since 1921! We cannot build a snow man, or go dashing in a sleigh. But we will never freeze because We live […]
If your hard drive is low on space, a good place to look for things to jettison is your iTunes library. Lots of music files are large because the songs they contain are very long — Alice’s Restaurant Massacree clocks in at over eighteen minutes! — or because they’re encoded using AAC or the Apple […]
A few years ago I wrote about how foolish it would be for me to spend $499.00 on a replica BlasTech DL-44. (I really did consider it.) I guess that means it would be really, really irresponsible to lay down $200,000.00 for the actual one. via kottke.org
Depending upon the size of your iTunes library and how you have your playlists configured, you could have a bunch of awesome songs that you are either hearing over and over and over again, or that you’ve not heard in ages. Those are both terrible situations, of course. You want to have a happy medium. […]
Today is the birthday of Walt Disney, one of the most important men in my life. He was born December 5, 1901, in Chicago. He changed the world, and his creations have had a profound impact on me. I truly would not be who I am today if it wasn’t for his vision. I grew […]
Here’s a quick and easy smart playlist for you. Let’s create a collection of only songs released in the 90s. This is a very simple playlist, and its utility is primarily as a component of other smart playlists. In iTunes click File → New → Smart Playlist …. Then choose the parameters set in this […]
