Blank

So I had an iTunes nightmare Friday night which ended up in me losing all my playlist, client work and DJ selections. Everything I do is based on my organization so the magnitude of this fail is so ridiculous that I’ve found it hard to even have an emotion about it. Instead I’ve been up for the last 48 hours re-doing all the work due in the next few days and pretty much rebuilding my work life. I haven’t had much time to think about it because the consequences of not bouncing back immediately don’t allow it but I’m realizing that this is how all problems should be dealt with – objectively. I could sit here, cry about it, look up to the sky and ask why me or I could void the unnecessary emotions and immediately get fixing the problem. I don’t know if it’s experience kicking in or what but I’m digging this new reaction, it feels kinda like that picture up there – blank.

You ever see Roger Federer lose a point? You ever see him win one? The reaction or lack thereof is pretty much streamlined no matter the outcome. I was always fascinated by that nuance and now I think I’ve really starting to understand it. Win or lose a point, 40-love or love-40, the ONLY objective is to win the next one. When you think about it that way it’s hard to justify worrying about some things.

Anyways, I should be working right now but I couldn’t leave you guys hanging for another day so I had to take a break. I’ve been listening to nothing but world music for a hotel chain in China but this morning on my way to poison my body with more coffee I was playing the latest playlist from the ShaveUrLegz.com crew and it fit the mood perfectly so I thought to share, enjoy…

    I’ve just had the same thing happen to my iTunes, but I actually managed to get it all back.

    In case you haven’t tried this:
    If you have a back-up of your computer before it happened, you can probably just go to the iTunes Media folder and find a file that says something like “iTunes Library.itl”

    Thats the file that holds all the playlist info and song names, so if you restore a previous backed-up version of the file to that same folder and then relaunch iTunes you could get it all back.

    Sorry to hear you lost your playlists man. I know the feeling. You should get a time capsule or something like that. Automatic backups are a must for any working professional in your field. Keep up the awesome blog and keep bringing us these fine toons.
