While browsing Ask MetaFilter I came across this query for a list of 1000 songs published by now defunct Cargo Magazine. And proving how cool the internet is, someone had a great answer and found scans of the pages and put them on Flickr (links on the page).
I have spent a little time transcribing the list, a pain to be sure. You can find part of it here. Not complete, but I will be updating it as I add 50 and 100 songs at a time.
A bit of fun can be had browsing this list checking out the very eclectic mix and realizing how much, or in my case how little, of this list you actually own. With iTunes and AllOfMP3 I am going to try and complete the list with the songs that agree with me. All 1000 seem a bit much, don’t they?
And since we are collections of music, here is a reminder: Don’t plug your iPod into a computer with iTunes but not your current playlists. I tried to charge my iPod on my work laptop the other day and it blew away all but about 1/4 of the music I had on it because the playlists didn’t match. No fun. I have now de-authorized and un-installed iTunes on that machine.
Very little poker to report. Three SnGs on FullTilt, the first two I got my Kings cracked by turned and rivered flushes respectively. I saw one coming and should have bailed. The 2nd one had the money in on the flop and I, apparently, can’t dodge bullets. The third SnG was, well a disappointment but I think I learned a few things. I am re-tooling my SnG strategy a bit and it is going to take awhile to get consistant. A bit of cash, but quit when the table broke. I had one fish crack 3 big hands with sets within 6 or 7 hands. I broke even with him- calling stations tend to dump if you can keep them at the table- but I should have been up. Oh well.
The weather is *great* today. Mid to upper 80s and I am going to try and duck out by 5PM to get some groceries, go for my walk and hopefully work on my poker table which I have woefully left sitting on my workbench unfinished.
