Set iPlod to Shuffle .. Engage

Hey Ho Gentle Reader,

Waiting for a flight in glorious ignorance of what is happening, there is no body at the gate, boarding time has come and gone and there is no big orange "quite-difficult- jet" at the end of the pier. ~sigh~

I have in an effort to amuse myself I have invented a game called iPlod-Bingo. I have a made a list of the Genre's on said doobry.. fed the list into a wee program that randomly spits out 6 genres from my list, then put the iPlod onto shuffle and match the first 12 songs it plays to the genre list. Now it has to be said I have a 80Gb Classic with currently...errr... 6925 songs on it. Also I am a tab lax with my Genre classification. However.... my list to match is
  • Folk-Rock
  • Grunge
  • Icelandic Pixie
  • Classic Punk
  • Laurel Canyon Pretentious
  • 80's Metal
So far I have listened to 4 tracks and matched 2

Folk-Rock => The Saw Doctors - Freedom Fighters
Laurel Canyon Pretentious => Frank Zappa "Titties and Beer"

I am hoping for a shot of Sigur Ros, Bjork,Minus or Sálin for the Icelandic Pixies which might be hard... OOOOOO just got Mudhoney "where is the future" there goes "Grunge" come on gimme some Motely Crue.....

"Now what you' gonna give me for those Titties and Beer? I s'pose you notice this little contract here?"

Classic! Ranks right up there with "Whipping Post" and "Why does it hurt when I pee".

Gotta love Zappa!

Everyone need a little Zappa from time to time ... LOL... esp since he is now so politically incorrect. :)
