damn jeff! you nailed it again. much like any other pleasure, music induced endorphin release eventually, like all stimuli, becomes just another fix in the end. but we continue to chase dont we?!


Thanks, Gerald. It's a chimera, for sure.

BTW, the name is my wife's Carrie because my iMac G5 broke. I'll be using her computer for the next week or so. Jeff

Wow. What a great commentary.

It is why I have yet to buy an iPod!

All my close friends have them. And get this... They have filled theirs... with all MY owned music!

I own thousands of LP's, CD's and cassettes (inherited over the many years when my older brothers & I collected it). But I just have trouble with the concept of trying to pinch my whole music collection into one hand-held unit.

I never could pin down the reason why, other than the anxiety and trouble going through spending the time doing it. But boy... I think you answered the reasons why in one outstanding commentary!

It's why I like the good ol' radio most of the time. It's easy... and stress free. It's music given to you without any effort at all.

I occasionally dab into my music collection and/or grab a small portion of it to listen to while driving down south for vacation. And those few times are really special.. probably... because its so infrequent.

Thanks for that great commentary.

Thanks for the feedback. The anxieties of managing iPod music have taken me back to the basic radio as well.
