I can't listen to books on tape when I am driving, they are too slow and they distract me. I will listen to podcasts on the computer when I am doing something mindless at home - it helps make filing paperwork less horrible. In the car it is music or nothing - what I have playing depends on mood and energy levels. What is in the CD player now - Best of Bryan Adams (I was feeling reminiscent). Last one - Skyscraper Soul (Jim Cuddy) - I especially like "Everyone watched the wedding", that has heart. Before that - Beolach. (And I have tickets for Leahy in Ottawa in December). Before that a Blue Rodeo CD, forget which one.
I liked harder rock and metal way back when, but after a while it gets old, it's all show and not much heart - although Steppenwolf never gets old, just gets drivers speeding tickets.
I may never end up stopping my Expressvu, I use it more now for all the music channels than the actual TV shows. Anyone have a recommendation for a Pandora/Last free equivalent for Canada?
