some stuff

One side effect of getting an iPod is that previously neglected parts of my music collection finally get listened to.

Among the hidden treasures I'd totally forgotten about are Judas Priest's British Steel and Screaming for Vengeance albums. Also, several Iron Maiden albums the best of which is Number of the Beast.

Some of you will recall that the Friday before Super Bowl weekend, I nearly had an opportunity to hook the iPod up through the PA system at a certain Norcross drinking and pool-table establishment. If they'd have had the right cables, I'd have treated them all to British Steel on shuffle. Oh, for a real-life Adapter Shack!

Meanwhile, I finally got around to using the $50 iTunes gift card that I got for Christmas. I don't want to sound complainin', but isn't it possible for them to simply have every album currently available on CD in their store? What is so friggin hard about that?

I now wish that I would've taken the time to figure out if they was a way to get access to the iTunes stores for other countries instead of the US. I bet they have a UK store with the original "Mama Weer All Crazee Now" by Slade, for instance.

Oh well, I didn't think of that. I just found 50 songs from what they had to offer. If they're profiling my purchases, I hope I don't know what to make of me. How many people purchase both "Angel Dust" by Venom and two different people's versions of "Wreck of the Old 97". In one sitting?
