It's not pretty, this often gray, lukewarm to chilly weather we're having this weekend. I'm not motivated to do much. In between whatever, I'm tinkering with my iPod. This is what I got at Amoeba to feed it today.
The Patti disc has my favorite song by her, "I Don't Go Shopping." I used to own this record, but I'm not sure if it was on tape. (Or maybe I own it on CD and it's in storage, which means I now own two copies. Oh well. It was cheap. And Bubs bought it for me.) I also got a stack of discs from the library to do a little "burn and return." Hey, I figure I pay for this music in fines.
Let's see, What's in the library tunes? Jill Scott's Beautifully Human and The Real Thing. Tom Waits's Orphans. Jelly Roll Morton. The World of Nat King Cole. Rick James's Anthology. Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Cole Porter Song Book. Justin Timberlake for "What Goes Around...," which I find catchy, and I try to overlook that it might be about Britney Spears (good lord). A Dean Martin set that contains two of his records. The soundtrack from the movie Ray. Bruce Springsteen's Magic. Some other stuff. The library is fabulous for music. Oh and books. They have those, too.
