This week I have revitalized my enjoyment in all things musical and newsie. Thanks to my new 16gb ipod nano I follow a handful of podcasts: Fresh Air, This American Life, Science Friday, and select sports and nature programs. Additionally, I’ve been listening to my buddy’s, BRR, mixes and what not. I’m in the midst of getting complete discographies together of artists that I already like but want to experience outside of “hits” : The Who, The Kinks, David Bowie, etc. It has also lead me into the realm of listening to live music performances again. This however requires quality speakers or headphones, and volume. So that’s a no go for listening at work.
If you’re looking for an album, check out WorldCat.org – and discover availability at a local library near you. They even offer a mobile phone version; I’ve used it a little bit but feel that you may be better off calling the library if you don’t computer access. If you aren’t on a music kick and would like to get a jump-start, I recommend the Tokyo Police Club album Elephant Shell.
