    pissing in the wind:

    I am too busy but that's never stopped me from procrastinating: 0 GB, last purchased was My Morning Jacket At Dawn; song playing is something I don't know the name of off Wilco's basement outtakes from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot; five songs: 1) "New Slang" because I was playing the song poorly before Jordan Klein ever saw Garden State and so I'm cooler, 2) "Bermuda Highway", MMJ. 3) "Vice Roy Filter King", Slim Cessna, 4) "Streets of Sorrow/Birmingham Six", Pogues, 5) "Pissing in the Wind", Jerry Jeff Walker, and it's blowing all over my friends.

    On the 0 GBs, I recently got an old mac, running OS X 10.3.9, for which, if you're backing up music files with iTunes, there's a LAME encoding plugin for iTunes folks might find handy, which is a few years ahead of the old algorithms used by iTunes otherwise. I'm encoding with highest quality variable bit rate, minimum set to 128Kbps (-b 128 -v -V 0 -h), which results in average bitrates of around 250, an extra megabyte per file, very long import time, but they sound less grainy (or you can take a more rigorously subjective opinion) on these moderately ok speakers I have than iTune's 192Kbps constant rate encoding default option.
