I pulled out my one and only Christmas CD for the holidays.  Christmas Caravan by the Squirrel Nut Zippers has to be among the coolest of the genre because it eschews the done-to-death standards you hear on every other release (the only recognizable song is a Dixieland instrumental version of Sleigh Ride) and does arrangements in many different styles.  There's 40's pop, 50's rock, blues, country and their signature hot jazz sound.  The musicianship is a little ragged, but I like that unpolished quality.  It sounds authentic and human compared to the autotuned drum beats on the radio today.

My favorite Christmas CD is by the League of Decency. Great local band. Been around in one form or another for many years.

Gotta admit I think "bad influence" and "fun house" (both off fun house) are great driving songs... assuming you like driving fast.

Bought V a sansa clip+ for Christmas.  She's loving it.  But then again, we're the last to get 3 years ago technology.

A co-worker asked if I still purchased CDs.  I said yes, but that was not truthful.  Somebody else buys them for me.

Yep, that's about how old that sansa was... cost a fortune for the 8GB at the time, but was still much much cheaper than the IPOD.  Matter of fact, have a 8GB IPOD in the box that I got as a gift last May and have absolutely no interest... just not much of an interest if following the crowd...

I've got 3 Sansa, an 8gb clip that goes in the car a fuze and a 260. I refuse to buy an ipod of any kind because I don't want to ge governed by itunes. I may be wrong but that's the way  feel.

I'll bet the 8GB cost a fortune.  I went middle of the road with the 4GB.  Was looking at the Ipod shuffle but didn't like that you were restricted to their ear buds because the controls are on the cord to the buds.

Rwcohen, didn't you claim to be not a techno-geek in another thread?  How many technologies can you mix in there with ripping an audio book to mp3 to cassette to radio to phone, via bluetooth, to radio?

I was referring to Twitter. I still just don't get it. As far as technology goes, I consider myself "dangerous" meaning I can screw up a machine and more than likely need to call tech support. Now if I can just get my puter to accept my printer.......
