Brazilian Metal Makes Me Drive Fast
Posted by Sam at 1:13 PM | tags: ,

Reports are flooding in concerning the new, feature-packed, yet clunky iTunes 7. I installed the beast moments after it was released... cuz I'm like that... and I must say that I'm pleased and disappointed. Simultaneously. The Gapless Audio Playback thingy worked splendidly and sounded great. The Album Cover Finder thingy worked less than splendidly. I set it to fetch my covers overnight. When I awoke this morning, I found that it had hit the halfway point and stopped... not froze... just stopped. I could still use iTunes, but I couldn't get any covers past that point.

Fine. It's software. It happens. I'm sure I'll give it another go... but what's interesting here is the album that it got hung up on: Beneath the Remains, by Sepultura.

The two times that I've been pulled over and ticketed for speeding, I was listening to that album (what can I say? Brazilian thrash metal makes me drive fast...). So geez, what's the deal with that album!? It's like cursed or some junk.

Anyway, I'll run the iTunes Album Finder thingy again tonight. If it stops at Beneath the Remains, that Album is going straight to the thrash... I mean trash.

Interestingly, and as somewhat of an aside, the first time I was pulled over listening to Beneath the Remains, it was on an audio cassette. The second time, iPod. Talk about technological extremes...

When I had my Cougar whenever I listened to the Who cover of Summer Time Blues my digital dashboard would blow out and I'd have to take the car in to have it reset. After about the third time this happened the tech finally realized that my stereo was running on too small a fuse.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
