salt water swimming and bored with my ipod

My 6am client was away today, so I met my good friend Denny White at Penfield Beach in Fairfield to get in a nice open water, salt water swim. The Sound actually seemed clean! I wore my new Nineteen sleeveless wetsuit which was soooo nice - I don't think I kicked at all with the lower body buoyancy this wetsuit offers. We dove in around 6:05 and the sun wasn't up yet. The salt water tasted great and reminded me that in four weeks I'll be tasting this again in the Pacific. The water was like glass this morning and I felt smooth in it. I breath to my right - this is how I learned to swim, so as I headed out, I was breathing to the east. Very soon, the sun began popping up over the sound - it was a bright orange and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Man, what a great way to start the day. No jelly fish except for the smaller ones that don't sting.

I'm getting a bit bored with my ipod. I am asking for some comments here. What are you listening too? Some good stuff that has kept me rolling:

"Ain't no rest for the wicked" by Cage the Elephant - I like these guys. Not the same old bs you typically hear these days.

Anything by Lupe Fiasco - this guy is really good. You need to like rap a bit but open your mind.

"Tear You Apart" by She Wants Revenge - OK, disturbing lyrics, but the song makes you want to shift up a gear or three. Reminds of NIN.

So I need some more ideas. Again, I listen to anything, so please respond.

Cheers,

EH
