The death of the album?

Posted in Music with tags , on September 29, 2009 by misterjrtaylor

I can’t remember the last time I played a CD. And it’s certainly been years since I played an LP, so what’s happened? The technology. Forget the MTV generation, I’m an iTunes addict… Only it’s not that good.

Soundtrack to your life

Not normally a fan of these sorts of lists, but this kinda captured my imagination…

1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For the first question, type the song that’s playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button TWICE
6. Don’t lie and try to pretend you’re cool…just type it in man!
7. Tag 10 people, and they have to do it too 🙂
