    Default [OT] The downside of being tech-savvy - other people's iPods

    Why is that friends and family always ask me to 'just put some of their music on their iPod'?

    So this weekend I loaded -

    The Essential Michael Jackson
    The Nightfly - Donald Fagen (OK - I can live with this one)
    The Best of Fleetwood Mac
    The Voice of Michael McDonald
    Kenny Loggin's Greatest Hits
    Imagination - The Best Of
    Earth, Wind & Fire - The Definitive Collection
    Saturday Night Fever (OST)
    City of Angels (OST)

    I need therapy!

    Anyone else been subjected to such torment?

    was it the original 'best of fleetwood mac' when they were a blues band... or was it the 'best of fleetwood mac' with stevie nicks?

    if it was the former, its a great album. if it was the latter, you should have exercised your right to use a hammer and destroyed the cd, the computer, and the ipod!

    happened to me with fixing computers all childhood long (which i wasn't good at anyways because windows is like rocket science!), so i'm feeling you.

    and for ipods thats probably because apple hast this annoying itunes-only policy (which must be confusing when you don't get computers anyways) and still every one needs to be hip and buy an ipod.

    One thing that I really am horrified at is the organization of the average person's music library, and how it looks on an ipod.

    It's so damned horrible, I mean really, such a mess.

    Maximum torment Josh. And with you BigC - all that crap with ratings and number of listens, silly genres and the untitled songs/albums. Nevermind that they actually use the supplied IEM's!

    packaging that crap should be against the law. i broke my usual earphones the other day (cheap ultimate ears ones) and left my senny's in a mates car and had to resort to the apple supplied ones for a couple of days... never again! they sound F*ING terrible, and they don't fit in your ears.


    EDIT: what bugs me is the amount of people that replace their apple headphones, with more apple headphones when they need new ones!

    Actually, your in the wrong here....

    From your quote "The purpose of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought"

    How can such a man not like the classics :/ Back when people actually wrote songs that meant something.

    ps: play to what people want... job its what pays for your food ^_^

    Like I said - happy to go with Donald Fagen. It goes well with my iPod collection that includes The Doors, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Donovan, The Beatles, Jeff Beck etc, etc from the time when songs meant something. But, Imagination and Kenny Loggins probably won't stand the test of time.
