The Music Meme

I’m joining in the MP3 meme. Blame Adrian and his all-anime, all-the-time list.

Note that the fields below are straight from iTunes, as follows:

Song Name — Time — Rating (100 = 5 stars) — Artist — Album — Last Played — Genre

One weird thing… in pasting the randomized list of music from iTunes, I got an alphabetized list (by song name) in XJournal. Quirky. I can assure you that, although the above songs are in alphabetical order, there were selected randomly from my library of 1,991 completely legal songs. Not that I’m lording my superior morality over anyone, like Q.

    Well, not at the textual level, anyway….

    …how did you find out about this? Will I be haunted by non-existent subtext forever?

  3. wayman says:

    I have a ‘Q’ in my name, which gives me … certain insights, shall we say? (Also, I get SWILNews.)

Nurd Up!
