Apple Purgatory + Food for Thought

Apple WHAT IS Taking place

It begun when I experimented with to entry our Apple Television account for Josh to see the soccer activity in excess of the weekend.

I observed that my playlists had disappeared, and Apple imagined I was Josh.

(Of take note, my Wellness app seems to think my observe belongs to Cameron. It will say issues like “Great job closing your rings these days, Cameron!”)

THEN I figured out that I experienced to log again into the buys/apps part in a distinct way to restore my playlists. Playlists reappeared! I really like my large racing playlist specially. It has a good deal of tunes that appear to be random but are meaningful to me, and I Really like hearing them occur up throughout a race. Some random examples:

Liz Phair’s “6’1″ ” – I recall actively playing this at the start out of so quite a few races in the 2000s/early 2010s. It was normally my to start with music. The guitar kicks in and it is just a fantastic sendoff — not way too quickly, but with a grungy, “underdog prevails” kind of power to it.

Decemberists “The Rake’s Song” – this track is about . . . infanticide!?!? It’s a outrageous track that was portion of a unusual album, but I was soooo into it in ~2007 and keep in mind working to the whole album for the duration of my PR marathon in 2009.

Everything from the Barbie soundtrack or Olivia Rodrigo — reminds me of the young ones!! And something that helps make me consider of them helps make me smile.

Music from Signify Ladies – yet again, underdog electrical power. This is what I crave in a race or speed work out setting.

Digression aside, I am glad I obtained my playlists back! BUT then my health data seemed to have been erased!

It then confirmed “restoring exercise information from cloud” and just after a prolonged pause it arrived again, but although it was long gone I thought about it and understood that my exercise is the same no matter whether my Health and fitness app appreciates about it or not. Ha!

(Furthermore, there is still Strava. I would be additional upset if that details was dropped!)

All of this information selection and report keeping is so exciting to imagine about. I obtain it helpful and adore performing it! And nevertheless . . . I know so much of it is basically worthless. It has no intrinsic value. No just one will want it when I am long gone someday. I like making use of paper planners and acquire delight in several internet pages stuffed out with all kinds of information irrespective of the actuality that I normally let them go into the shredder at year’s finish! It feels just about irrational to do all of the accumulating I do but I discover it immensely fulfilling however. Incredibly exciting to mirror on.
