Desperate measures

What if I make the notebook my iPod?spend a better part of last night creating a lil' playlist for the media player. the mini iPod's not really out in this neck of the woods yet, as i gathered from looking up reviews on the net. i know. the battery's crap. push comes to shove i'll get the 20Gb version. getting it direct from the apple store gets you a free laser-engraved message on it's back. *leleh* it's suckers like me that makes evil conglomerates like apple and starbucks flourish. the fact that it's not out yet also gave me time to ruminate on why i need one (need? more like want). the more i think about it, the more reasons for not getting it becomes plausible. someone up there's giving me a sign!

coming back to the windows media player. i just realised i could hear parts previously inaudible (i think it's just my inattention!) in songs that i'm familiar with. the notebook's linked to a pair of cheapo sony speakers, for heaven's sake; but still, i like. i could make out what the guitar widdling sounds like in coldplay's in my place during the prechorus. or making out the key for the backing vox for stp's creep. or reach the deepest plane of depression and anger more successfully with radiohead's exit music.

or listen to the clarity of the rough cut from a studio session from a little known jazz band, with superb bass playing.

hahaha. really.

off to the hospital for some quiet revision time now.
