Since the Shuffle died and I’ve been using the mobiBLU, my podcast workflow has been screwed up. I really miss using the smart iTunes playlists that automatically updated when I plugged the device in. I’ve found that lately when I’ve been stressed and harried, quite often I’ve been making mistakes with my manual reconciliation of what I’ve listened to. I keep neglecting to delete files off the MP3 player, and keep finding myself with the same episode of something over and over. That can be a real drag, particularly when I run out of listening because I had a big chunk of my capacity filled with things I’d already listened to.
With the new lifestyle and the job outside the house, I do have a huge backlog. There are a number of shows that I’m just listening to their first August episodes. I have to get a little more ruthless about cutting and or skipping things. To make matters worse (or better, depending on your perspective) I got a bunch of new neighbors in AmigoFish and got a giant load of recommended episodes from that.
If I feel behind on the audio podcasts, that’s nothing compared to video. I’m only up to the beginning of March in my viewing. I broke the strict ordering and watched a bunch of the Tiki Bar TV episodes over lunch today. That show just makes me happy. What gets me is how many people in AmigoFish hate it! Whose heart is that hard or tastes that askew? Oh well, that difference in taste is what makes the whole thing work, so I shouldn’t complain. If it wasn’t for that, there would be no reason for AmigoFish to exist. I really need to get the video viewing working on the Sharp Zaurus, because I have pushing 1000 videos to watch. Yipes!
