About Playlists.

So I’ve been on three kicks lately that have started colliding in odd ways.  I’ve been getting a lot more back into music (listening to/opining about).  I’m also getting more serious about my health (especially my desire to not have moobs… I’m thinking of cutting booze out of my diet (for a while)).  Lastly, I’ve been doing a lot more organization…ings.  I’ve been organizing really important things at work, getting my records in order (not the vinyl type), re-arranging furniture, throwing out old magazines, etc.  Electronic organization is a pretty big deal to me, as well.  Co-workers would likely state that I am sometimes Nazish with how I like my data stored.  You better use the right folder and not just make some bullshit that noone understands or I’m gunna be a dick to you.

Music and organization have collided for me some time ago with a long-overdo (and long-assed-taking) fix-fixing and re-org of my entire electronic music collection.  I’m not sure exactly how big it is, but in terms of raw gigage, it’s bigger than my porn collection.  Some of those are HD DVD rips, so… yeah.  Anyway, that’s another topic for another day.  Today I’m going to talkat you about a collision of all three – my exercise playlists.

I think your playlists say a lot about you.  I don’t just mean about your music tastes, though certainly that as well.  What I mean is that it says something about you as a person, or at least your current state of life.  For instance, I have playlists for just the discographies of particular artists.  I actually started doing this just to make sure I had the music in my iPod.  Call me lazy.  Or sexy.  Both true.  My “Running” playlist is entirely indicative of this.  Not that I don’t like the songs, but there must be at least a dozen that don’t belong and I skip every jog.  I think this means my playlist is bad.  It’s fine to have skip inducing songs on a discography style playlist, but not for purpose intended lists.  I also have some opinions on when you should care about the actual order of the list, but that’s for another time.  This list has no real order, as I always listen to it with shuffle on.  Anyway, enough talky-talky.  Here’s my actual running playlist, with strikethroughs for what I know I want to remove already:
