1. Acquired Wally Lamb book. But promise to finish MM first.
2. Saw National Treasure. Loved it. But then, my cat's named after Nicolas Cage.
3. Very excitedly making a mix cd. Sidetracked by re-genreing everything. And ripping a bunch of stuff.
4. Won $10 at poker friday night. Despite this, still not much of a gambler. The spirit of poker does not live within me.
5. Somehow avoided NC and MsT all weekend, which makes no sense, since that is the opposite of what I wanted to do. Sorry guys. :(

Heh, I regularly blow, oh, $10-$20 dollars when I am in Vegas for two weeks for work each year. I enjoy adrenaline, but watching your money come and go for some reason doesn't do it for me.

My mom makes it a habit to hit the slot machines at Dover Downs once a month or so. I just don't get it. Gambling when I have some control (poker, blackjack,) that's fine. But if I'm just gonna sit at a machine pressing buttons, I'd at least like to be killing trolls to earn experience and loot for my troubles.

I was aggravated because you don't get to see everyone's cards at the end. I don't get it! It's like watching to the climax of a movie and then turning it off. Bah!

I haven't read any of his other books, I picked this one up because of the books to prisons project organizers' suggestions.

I've decided to re-name the "synthpop" genre to "oontz" and the "indie pop" genre to "twee".

Heh... I lumped everything in the "synthpop" genre into other things - electronic, dance, and I have reclaimed "alternative" to kind of mean "alternative to pop yet still poppy".

But I should come up with better names. brilliant!

I don't use most of of the premade categories. They annoy me for some reason. I dn't even use, like, the Hip-Hop one, because I didn't approve of the lack of a hyphen. Here are mine:
Alternative (old alt stuff, like the Pixies and My Bloody Valentine)
Funk (Funkadelic, Sly)
Hair Metal (Motley Crue, Bon Jovi)
Hip-Hop
Hum0r (South Park and Simpsons sdtrks)
Indie Rock
Indie Pop (now Twee! stuff like the White Stripes)
Industrial (pretty much just NIN, which I couldn't bring myself to put in Oontz)
Maudlin (L. Cohen, other wrist-slitting tunes)
Meditative (instrumentals, mainly)
New Wave
Pop (stuff like REM)
Radio (mainly 80s)
Rock (Rush, and other things which are not Hair Metal)
Smoove (makeout tunes)
Soundtracks
Synthpop (now Oontz)
Unclassified (things I just got and haven't put somewhere yet)

Mine is premade categories, only because the location of the actual files is what breaks them down into my personal genres. In Itunes I have:

Alternative (basicaly what you described)
Blues
Celtic
Children's
Classic Rock
Classical
Comedy
Country
Dance (mostly early 90s)
Eighties
Electronic (late 90s into 00s)
Folk
French Pop
Game (sigh, video game music)
"General Rock" which I used to group all Neil Finn related projects
Holiday
Indie (anything that came out after 2000 that you can't hear on the radio)
Lounge
New Age
Oldies (almost 100% Beatles and Monkees)
Pop
Prog Rock
R&B
Rap
Reggae
Riot Grrrl (which gets lots of things that are just grrrl, no riot)
Rock
Showtunes
Vocal (a capella, choir, spirituals etc)
World

In the actual folders/locations on the drive, you see a separate set of genres:

Contemporary (things I listen to in the past year)
History (things I listened to before this year that came out during that time)
Pre-History (things that came out before I could have heard them, like pre 1980)
Happy
Sad
Sex
etc.

I love to hear about how other people do this for some reason.
