Whatcha Readin’ and Listenin’ To Wednesday: December 17, 2008

Usually I post what I’m listening to in my car, where I get through about six CDs a week. But when not in my car, I also listen to music on my iPod.

So today, you’ll get the iPod edition; I’ll show you the last 20 songs that came up on my iPod shuffle play. Enjoy.


Titan Unveiled: Saturn’s Mysterious Moon Explored, by Ralph Lorenz and Jacqueline Mitton. Planetary science fascinates me, and that extends to the moons of the solar system. This book goes into crazy depth on everything you could possibly want to know about Titan, an amazing world far, far away.

Listening To:

The Police, “Regatta de Blanc”
Trivium, “Becoming the Dragon”
Motörhead, “Ace of Spades”
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, “The Message”
Ozzy Osbourne, “Over the Mountain”
Rush, “The Fountain of Lamneth”
Kiss, “War Machine”
Tool, “Parabol”
Huey Lewis & the News, “Heart and Soul”
Led Zeppelin, “Gallows Pole”

Just finished Struwwelpeter by Heinrich Hoffmann, one of my favorite children's books as a child. A classic set of German stories where bad people get what they deserve.

Just began The Nibelungenlied, another German classic.

Balancing that out with more Christmas music.

What am I reading? Hmmm. The only thing I have time for at the moment is my laundry list of things to do before I leave town. I'm currently reading the requirements from the DMV on how to renew my drivers license. After that, I'm reading and filling out pet insurance.

Oh and I'm listening to it snow and sleet outside!

Exciting, eh?

More writing than reading here but listening to Bob Dylan for some reason. It seems to be going with the writing. -shrugs- Who am I to question what works and what doesn't?
