Elmo TMX – Clearly invented by someone who hates parents

There are only two possible explanations for the existance of this thing:

1. The inventor hates parents. He or she must have been abused.

2. The company behind it is evil. Why else would they submit those of us with young children to inhuman torture of hearing that thing. This video doesn’t give you an idea how loud these things are.

I’m sure that when my dad reads this he’s going to fall over laughing.

Multiple iTunes libraries? Music geek heaven

Ok, so iTunes 7 looks goofy. But it now supports multiple libraries. About time!

I’ve got more music than I do local storage space (emusic subscription + time = lots and lots of great music). So my collection lives on an external hd. This is all fine and dandy, except for when I want a change in scenery and want to work away from my desk.

Sure I could use my iPod, and usually do. But there have been enough times where I haven’t had my magical white music box with me. I do have some “emergency use only” music stored on my phone. But I’m spoiled. And I want a wide selection of tunes available at all times. Yes, I really am that petty when it comes to music.

So now, I’ve got a couple of gigs of the latest and greatest living locally. The sweet sweet sounds of Yo La Tengo, The National, The Dears, Muse, and of course Radiohead will never be far away.

OMG I am such a nerd!
