just shuffling along on the iPod . . . from the evening of 3 January 2006

The rules (as passed along by holzman): Take out your iPod or other musical device. Put it in “random” mode. Hit “play.” Write down the first ten tracks that come up—and no fair putting in ones you think will make you look cool, or omitting ones that make you look like a total dork.
My rules: The first ten selections while on my way to work and at work last night. (The listing starts with the first selection up when I get in the car and set the iPod to shuffle play so as to avoid the “optional starting and stopping” error so popular among ESP “researchers.”)
