iTunes a little iNNoying ...


Is it just me or does iTunes update the software about as often as I update this blog? I use iTunes to organize my music collection. I use iTunes to listen to music at work. It seems to me that perhaps every other day when I try to turn on iTunes to listen to some music, up pops the little communiqué from Apple saying: "There is a new version 231.3 of iTunes available. Would you like to download it now?"

This is very disruptive.

Plus, so long as I'm ranting, the iTunes jukebox looks ugly in the last three or four versions. All these new versions of the software a blight upon the face of civilization.

The nice thing about iTunes is that if someone, say one of your pals, sends you an MP3, you can quickly and easily load it in there. Then, you can listen to said song while you work.

This way, when they find a gem while casting about in certain dark underworld alleyways, and send it to you, you can send them some feedback. Rather than simply saying: "I've been working" or some such blather.

Don't piss down my back and tell me it is raining. It doesn't work, I know, I've traveled that road. That dog won't hunt amigo.

I hate to be the voice of computer wisdom, BUT in your 'preferences' you can disable the 'automatically check for updates' feature and spare yourself this agony.

Now if you will excuse me, I've got to get back to a map of French Polynesia that I was about to lay down...

I appreciate that, Donger. That's some sage advice erupting out of your archipelago this fine day.

My difficulty is that I now no longer like the appearance of the last few versions of iTunes, and I continue to leave that automatic update option selected in hopes that the new version released tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or the day after the day after tomorrow will look cool again.

Whatever.
I only use computers for inspiration for my latest cartographic effort.

Your advanced technological products amaze and confuse me...I am holding out for the return of the 8-track. No software to download, no ugly versions. Yep, my money is on 8-Tracks.

Word. My gripe is this: I like to shuffle (approx 750 tunes) and he little f---er constantly pulls out all the dusty ass Beatle tunes I was stupid enough to load up (and can't bring myself to omit) while avoiding the fresh cuts I want to hear more often. Tim told me he has the same problem with his: constantly playing My Name is Luca (from his 'introspective'days) and never hitting all his Cher tunes he cherishes.

Oops. Sorry, TS. I reckon you already got a bee in your bonnett and this won't help. Thousand pardons. MISTER POOPIE PANTS!

BTW, visited your blog. Its really nice. I like it. Its a nice blog.

FOR ME TO POOP ON

I am impressed with the creative use of the word "poop" in your post - twice.

My name is Luca...I live on the second floor. I live upstairs from you, yes, I think you've seen me before. If you hear something late at night, some kind of trouble, some kind of fight...just don't ask me what it was.

Tomorrow: Nena and 99 Sich Luftballoons.

BTW, if you poop on my blog, I will start the Rosenblatt blog and poop in it.

I became concerned that you might just think that my threat was an idle threat. To show you how serious I am, please click on the link to my personal information by clicking on the Flamingo1 link. You will see that the "Poop On Rosenblatt" blog has been created and a post has been made.

I dare say that you will not place another bee in this here bonnet!!

Dear Mr. Cornholing Game,

iTunes, and iPod both are equipped with playlist features. Drag and drop the songs you want to hear into a playlist, title it: "I'm gay, and listen to crap", or something else that tickles your fancy. Then Que it up and begin jamming.

Must I do everything around here?

Garrett, no need to bust out The Velvet Frog and the rest of the Dungeons and Dragons crew on me! Ah, its cool; I need some light exercise this a.m.

Fret not little wizard buddy. We beautiful people can't be bothered with too much computing nerdery. Might fade my complexion.

P.S. Can I load your "Pocket Pool Mix" that you use on your long rides?

I doubt it would interest you, there is no Culture Club or Wham on that playlist...

Garrett, do you have anyone who's advanced beyond the I-Know-You-Are-But-What-Am-I stage?

Really Froggie you must try harder.

I'm laughing at the superior intellect.
