No random 20 tonight

I'm in a mood for something more certain than randomizing the big playlist. Just did an evaluation listen to Nena's 99 Luftballons, which I just ripped, to see how it sounded. Not good. It was an old album that I barely rescued from the used book & record store. I'll have to get it, or at least a couple of my favorites from it, on CD or download them from Amazon. Never have understood how some people can abuse their records like that.

Now playing is Crystal Ball by Styx. The title track is one of those FRAG songs: favorite regardless of artist or genre.

I started playing around with Tumblr. I don't know if I'm going to do anything with it, but it looks like it might be a decent alternative to Blogger, at least for the kind of blogging I do. They also have a way to audioblog with your cell phone, which looks very interesting. Also I can upload sound clips over there, which I can't do here. So I might use it for crossposting now and then when I want to share some sound samples. I added the feed to the right sidebar just for kicks.

Today has been a lazy, lazy day. Ripped four records, played with the kids, and not much else.

Tomorrow I turn 45. Hard to believe.

  1. I'm capturing songs off the net using audacity.

    The MP3 quality is quite good and I've built up quite a library of TV live performances such as ed sullivan etc..
