This wood have been, oh, about 1200 years ago…

CNN’s reporting a construction worker’s discovery of a medieval book of psalms in a bog somewhere in Ireland.

You never know what you’ll find under those layers of peat in your backyard….

    have you tried the “shuffle albums” setting? Nicer for long periods of listening, etc.

    I’m not crazy about shuffling all the contents of my iPod, but you can also do it by genre tag, and that gets pretty interesting.

    Also, Last fm ( more than gives Pandora a run for its money. (And has a far larger library.)

    wow. yeah.

    “innocence lost” and “river of love” definitely take me back (i’m not sure i own a cd copy of I Predict 1990 anymore and i know i don’t have The Turning.

    really, i miss cassettes and making those mixtapes in jr. high.

    “keep your distance”, i think, was the song covered by Solomon Burke in his country album, which i’m also liking and is getting some play on my iPod.

    so are some singles from Gorrilaz, including “Feel Good, Inc.”

    So that is where I left it those many years ago. Must have droped out of my pocket while I was doing my Salmon Leap. Seriously, this is pretty cool. Amazing that it wasn’t destroyed by the backhoe.
