I love the true randomness afforded by smart playlists on the iPod. It doesn't happen very often, but sometimes there's a laugh-out-loud funny juxtaposition of tracks. Heard today, track 1 on this disc
, a snippet of dialogue from Kill Bill
"...I've killed a hell of a lot of people to get to this point, but I have only one more. The last one. The one I'm driving to right now. The only one left. And when I arrive at my destination, I am going to Kill Bill."
...Immediately followed, with exactly
the right beat of timing, to the bouncy Tin Pan Alley
rhythm of track 25 on this album
It's a good thing it's Saturday and thus not terribly busy at the Y, or the following minute-and-a-half of uncontrollable snickering might have caused people to look at me strangely.
