Friday random ten(s)

   iTunes keeps doing weird shit. I used to have over 5900 songs in the library, but now it's telling me there are only 5875. Somewhere, iTunes has lost some songs, and I don't understand how. One of the ones I was able to pin down as being missing was track 16 of the soundtrack album from the movie The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Tracks one through fifteen are there, as are seventeen through nineteen. Sixteen has disappeared. I know it was there when I originally copied the CD to iTunes. Now it's gone.
   And I mean gone totally. When I manually go looking in the iTunes music folder, the rest of the files are all there, and track 16 is not. Where did it go? Matthew tells me there are entire albums missing. We're going to have to recopy the discs, which is a total time waster. I hope none of the songs Matthew downloaded from the iTunes store are missing, because we haven't backed them up yet.

Stupid iTunes!

I can't believe it...  This is perhaps the first time I actually have heard of each and every one of the artists listed.  

Oh hey!  Actually, you should do a "100 Favourite Albums" instead of the books since, well...  you seem to have far more albums.

I went looking for "The Spiral Staircase" to see if it was the song I thought it was.
Could not find any mention of the group?!?
I knew that they existed; you have them on your Ipod and I recognized them!

Useless factoid for the day... the name is actually "Starecase."

And yes, it was the song I thought it was. I believe that's one of my Mother's favorites.
