Good Lord. Mom and Dad gave me one of those tiny tiny new ipod shuffles for Christmas! It's so small I'm freaked out that I'll lose it/put it in the laundry/stuff it in a chicken and cook it. . . Too completely cool for someone who only recently got rid of the vinyl and remembers when 8 tracks were the newest thing. I got home yesterday and today spent a good deal of time buying music on itunes. They say the music you have on your ipod says a lot about you. What I have so far:

plenty of The Clash
99 Luftbaloons (don't ask)
Kylie Minogue (also don't ask)
ELO Twilight (God forgive me)
The Fray
Five for Fighting
Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (Somewhere Over the Rainbow - about the greatest recording ever)
MC Hammer Can't Touch This (God Forgive me)
Blister in the Sun (Violent Femmes)

I'm looking forward to loading this thing. I don't listen to music a lot mostly because I like this and that but not many full CDs (I DID NOT say ALBUM). So it's great to buy one favorite song at a time. And I realize about 99.9% of you know this but I'm new to it so this is a toy I will have fun playing with for a long time.

If you have musical suggestions please post them! I can use all the help I can get.

I have a lot of John Mayer on mine, along with all the Beatles and Stones of course. I have very few full CDs because I like the randomness of the "shuffle".

Don't put it in your pocket and then have it fall into the toilet -I've heard of that!

Happy New Year!
