Carlos is off tonight at Cat's Meow with his work peeps.
Among other projects, I'm home working on my second music compilation of the month. I usually put one together - and sometimes more if time or inspiration hits me.
The music compilation CD just reflects the music I'm listening to at that moment in time - regardless of the current trends. Carlos always gets a copy. Depending on the music, I send copies to other people.
Tonight, I put my cherished Media Monkey on Auto DJ, skimmed off the tunes that didn't fit, added other tunes that inspired me and came up with this set...
I pay for programs that I respect. To me, money = a vote toward a program that gets it right. After trying the free versions, I paid full price for the complete versions of Media Monkey and the app Shazam.
