2. 50/50. I shuffle songs when I don't know what I want or just want songs thrown at me (usually if I'm having a drink or two) but I can't imagine life as a music lover without the full-album experience. Ironically, it was my first iPod that trained me to be a better "album listener." Hearing so many nuggets pop up on my shuffle made me wonder what I was missing by skipping around on my CDs.
I rarely, if ever, stick to playlists.
3. Speakers. Used to be a headphones guy but it's too constrictive for my tastes these days.
4. N/A. I have a shelf of physical albums I am forever adding to, as well as a hard drive the size of Took's dad's cock.
