| | ipod anxiety: a survey
do you ever get anxious about which songs to put on your ipod? yes, hence this thread
do you upload all of your music on there? no, i'm cheap and i only have 8GB
do you have a method? no, hence this thread
do you ever include just random songs or do you need the entire album? i have included random songs in the past but it makes me feel anxious. like i just bought shoes from tj maxx
what about the artwork? do you have to have the artwork? i do, but i'm trying to get over this. again, without the artwork i feel like i'm drinking folgers
do you organize them into playlists? no i hate playlists
do you ever stop worrying about new music? no. i did for a while. for a good few years and then this past year i've become obsessed again. i rely on local hipsters and pitchfork to steer me towards what i like.
would you be embarrassed if someone looked at what's on your ipod? i have been in the past (cher's heart of stone and charly mcclaine's greatest hits)
do you put artists on there simply because you're a fan even though might not listen to them anymore? i do but i should stop. i'm over crystal castles but i'm afraid to get caught not having it on there. god forbid somebody think i don't know who they are. i have this issue w/ a lot of bands that have come and gone
should your music collection should represent your overall taste in music, spanning all genres, or only what you're currently listening to? i'm too neurotic to worry about anything other than current interests. although, ideally, i would own every piece of music i've ever listened to
oh, and also.
what kind of ipod does everyone use? 3G touch
do you have multiple? no, just one
do you get rid of old ones when you purchase a new one? i've heard that people do this and then they transfer all their music onto the new device. i think this sucks. i want to keep them all forever and ever.

Reason: added three questions at the end and then answered my own survey.
