Fridays really are random

In honour of Random Friday, I thought it would be fun to pit Steve (my sexy new iPod) against my trusty old laptop (who has sadly never been named), just to see what sort of playlists each would generate. It would be the ultimate test to determine who was the ultimate hipster apparatus.

Two gadget enter, one gadget leave.

You be the judge.

Steve:
now you're gone - the Detroit Cobras
the velvet cell - Gravenhurst
walk a mile - Holly Golightly
carried home - Iron & Wine
believer - Goldfrapp
Nebraska - Chrissie Hynde
Karen revisited - Sonic Youth
can song - Sonic Youth
folk bloodbath - Josh Ritter
hard coming love - the United States of America

Toshiba:
imperfect tense - Frank Turner
space blues #2 - Primal Scream
soon enough - the Constantines
who dares wins - the Streets
out of control - Darude
I'm good, I'm gone - Lykke Li
the trouble & the truth - Cuff the Duke
A-punk - Vampire Weekend
Mr. bad example - Warren Zevon
olympia - Falconhawk

Your devices can create their own playlists? Wow. I wonder how I can get mine to do that...

I'm listening to Loyal She Began by Handsome Dan and his Gallimaufry as I write this on CBC's Radio 3. Nice.

Wow, Random Friday. I feel like I'm 27 again. :)

I think the laptop wins. I thereby dub him "Ike."

Allison said...

Hmmm...interesting experiment. I think I'd have to say the laptop knows you best though.

You need super-duper intelli-gadgets, WC. Or, you can just put them on shuffle, like I did. *grin*

I'm glad to hear they are on Radio 3, Toccata! I thought you would enjoy Handsome Dan's music, and that of his Gallimaufry as well.

It's retro blogging weekend around here, Lesley. Get your 2006 clothes on!

I like Ike! Ike it shall be, Beckeye. You can be his godmother.

I think you may be right, Al, Steve and I are still circling around each other, sniffing.

My money's on Ike, too.

Yeah, Ike's known me longer, Phlegmmy.
