Man, you never realize just how eclectic your music tastes are until you hit the random shuffle button and start working on art. I gotta organize these playlists better. Andy Stewart and Rob Zombie need to be separated or I get major mental whiplash, and the less said about Tool's intrusions into my folk collection, the better. ("Funny, I don't remember Steeleye Span having quite so many songs about prison sex...")

The cruel and capricious sense of humor associated with Apple's shuffle algorithm for the iPod and iTunes is widely known. It's produced such notable moments as "Eye of the Tiger" three times in one hour (don't know victim, it was a Metaquote), or a cut from Rocky Horror every other song until it had played all but one song from the album (spouse's), or a Peter Gabriel or early Genesis cut every two songs (spouse's) or a fifteen song stretch of alternating between Van Halen and Malmsteen (mine).
