OK, As you can tell my old school ways have transformed into a much more easy to handle form of music. Sampling is so much easier to do with the iPod Touch, and instant email, maps and a ton of music on the road, where I spend all my time. Also I became a part of the portable hard-drive gang, with this preloaded rock and roll bonanza , all 1.5 terra bites of it. About, what? 35 years of continuous listening? Who would have thunk? And for all those who know of these things, yes, the song Thunk by The Jefferson Airplane/Starship is on there! So, the Decemberists, Springsteen's Waiting on a dream, Dylan's Tempest, Charlie Musselwhite, David Bowie's Hunky Dory, and Neil Young's After the Gold Rush, are going on shuffle for a good 8 hours or so! Nice to plug in in my dash on the semi and cruise on down the road! Yeah, I love it, gotta get some wireless speakers and use it at the house too! Oh, it came as a very nice gift from my wife ( the iPod) and the hard-drive from my good friend Mike, nice when things work out like that!
