I have Music in my life again. I don't mean that metaphorically, I mean it literally.
With the advent of the iPod, iTunes, and MP3s, I have started listening to and appreciating music again.
I have digitized my entire CD collection and downloaded a lot of songs from iTunes. now I have all my songs in one place and backed up. I bought an Airport Express to allow me to play directly from my computer to the stereo, so now I have instant access to my music through my stereo.
This is all too cool.
The other thing I did was buy an electric bass. I have always wanted to play, but somewhere stuck in my head was the idea that they did not make left-handed bass guitars. So I didn't do it. Then one day, I actually saw one in an instrument store. It was a revelation. I bought one and have started lessons from a CD. Unfortunately, my computer chewed up my CD, so I am going to have to get a new copy, but wow!!
Rock is my life.
