After finishing my latest audiobook, I was trying to think about other ways I could avoid the radio during my commute, so I decided to start listening to my iPod again. Now, I have somewhat of a…problem with acquiring a lot of music, so much so that I often hear songs come up on my iPod that I completely don’t recognize.
Now, I’m probably the last person in the world to hear about this feature, but in iTunes (and on your iPod), you can create Smart Playlists, where you can write rules about what kinds of songs should be included in the playlist. So I just created a smart playlist on my iPod that includes only songs with Play Counts of 0. And…it’s over 3000 items. In my defense, I don’t sync my iPod with my computer, so a good chunk of the songs I’ve listened to before, just not on my iPod. But that’s still pretty bad. I’m also taking the opportunity to delete all the crappy songs that I don’t like anymore, and rate the ones I do.
Edit: In completely unrelated news, I just checked, and I will be maxed-out on PTO (again) in two weeks. Sigh.
