ipod war

Are you challenging me to a walkoff?

1. OK, so there's a 5-way tie for first place in iPod War #4. You know what that means... it's time for an iPod Walkoff. toddv, 665321, losinginterest and jenza, shuffle up and deal.

2. I'm in the above-mentioned tie, but I'm abstaining from entering because my shuffles wouldn't be very interesting today; I made a "best of 2005 (or earlier but I'm just hearing now for the first time") playlist over the weekend and that's pretty much all I'm listening to these days.

3. Tonight - Season 3 premiere of the greatest show on TV, Arrested Development.

4. Weekend was uneventful; Kath had a Lost DVD marathon, and I alternated between WoW and Burnout Revenge. davidcloyd and I had another fantastic songwriting session on Sunday; it's become quite easy for us to look at a problem and come up with a solution that ends up fixing other, hidden problems. Two new songs are more or less done, now, and only require a finished melody and lyrics.

5. Mondays... suck.
My iPod-fu was found wanting. Too early 90s.

If Arrested Development sucks tonight, I'll be very upset.
