More Music

I've spent a pleasant time today sorting my iTunes playlists and tidying up the music library. I found a nifty little utility that allows me to package and move a number of spoken word things I had copied from cds, which got put in the music library. This had meant that if I ever put my iPod on "shuffle" my music would be interspersed with Ian McKellen reading The Odyssey, or bits of the BBC version of The Lord of the Rings. These have now been removed nicely into "Audiobooks" where they belong.

I also had fun creating a playlist I've called "my soundtrack" - my life in music. Everything from the love theme to Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet (which still brings tears to my eyes), to "To Sir With Love," from "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" to "The River," from "In Your Eyes" to "Northwest Passage" and "City of New Orleans" (oh, and I've just remembered "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay"... maybe in the morning.) It might be really weird listening to my past coming back to me, or it might be lovely. We'll see.

And I've just remembered a few more...

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…
