For the last week or two, up until the end of this past week, Katie and I have been using our iPods to play catch up on the TV series Friday Night Lights. It had been a race of sorts to see who could get through them first. But, at the same time, we'd both been walking on eggshells trying to contain our excitement for fear that we might accidentally reveal a plot point to each other that one of us had not actually yet viewed.
Well, the viewing frenzy has come to a close and we both absolutely love the show. Our favorite drama of the year, by far.
And, now that it was over, I could also finally catch up on a couple weeks worth of podcasts and music that I had collected from iTunes and the local library, respectively. I had a metric ton of music. It was actually a bit scary to look at all the albums that had built up in my personal music library.
So I made it simple and took all the new albums and threw them in a playlist I called "New Stuff" and started playing it in the background while at work. I think I made it through nine albums worth before the end of my workday yesterday.
I know that I have mentioned many times in the past that I love the library because of all the music I have at my fingertips. But have I mentioned how I love that, by having obtained this music from the library, I feel far less guilty about also having the "delete" key right at my fingertip?
It was a busy button yesterday. Poor guy needs a vacation.
Only two of the albums I listened to are still "on the island," per se. Paul Westerberg's Mono and Scissor Sisters Ta-Dah! (one of the best albums I've heard in a long time, just as a side note). Got another five to weed through today. Should be interesting.
