I promise, the iPod did it all by itself, finding that Byrne cut on the weekend that I'm in San Diego for tomorrow's Stone Beer Festival. Music just knows, folks. Otherwise, this list is next to eclectic in the dictionary.

I agree with the premise that iPods can sometimes exhibit a sentient intelligence. For instance, mine is obviously trying to make me feel better about a long couple of work weeks. I love my iPod.
