Random 10 – New iPod edition

For my anniversary, my darling wife got me a new iPod with about 10 times the storage space as my previous model. So now I’ve got room for all my music, not just the handpicked good stuff you’re used to. Let’s see what comes up…

  • Maybe Someday – The Cure – Bloodflowers
  • I’m Not Sleeping – Counting Crows – Recovering the Satellites
  • All Apologies – Nirvana – Unplugged in NY
  • Pittsburgh to Lebanon – Butthole Surfers – Locust Abortion Technician
  • You Shook Me – Led Zeppelin – Led Zeppelin I
  • Sunspots – Nine Inch Nails – With Teeth
  • Jambi – Tool – 10,000 Days
  • I’ll Take the Rain – REM – Reveal
  • Take It Like a Man – The Offspring – Ignition
  • Even in His Youth – Nirvana – With the Lights Out

Hm, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, NIN, Tool, and the Offspring. Something seems familiar about this list. The more things change, I guess.
