    30 Rock.

    Tina Fey is pure genius. Alec Baldwin is effin awesome in this show too.

    Tracy Morgan is annoying tho. He's the only downside.

    I have the same HD! I have about 300 GB's left as I secure empty trash every week. But I add about 15GB's of home video recorded content weekly, but of course delete it after uploading to YouTube to regain the HD space.

    I have about 10GB's of music in iTunes, 15GB's of movies in iTunes, 30GB's of Podcasts, 80GB's of movies in my Movies folder in OSX, about 12GB's of files in my documents, and about 6GB's of personal photos in iPhoto.

    You're gonna love your new HD!

    Apparently I can't say pir****ay or download to****ts, so I guess I should say download everything new you can LEGALLY, through Amazon. That should fill you up quick.

    I'd highly recommend CBC Radio's Spark podcast and CBC Radio 3 Sessions podcast.

    As far as music, some albums I'd recommend:
    Amy Millan: Masters Of The Burial
    Bat For Lashes: Two Suns
    Charlotte Hatherley: The Deep Blue
    Charlotte Hatherley: New Worlds
    Elliott Brood: Mountain Meadows
    Howling Bells: Radio Wars
    Jane Vain and The Dark Matter: Love Is Where the Smoke Is
    Jets Overhead: No Nations
    Joel Plaskett: Three
    Lou Barlow: Goodnight Unknown
    Metric: Fantasies
    Sarah Blasko: As Day Follows Night
    Stars: Sad Robots
    Wintermitts: Heirloom

    ...ah yes, you can easily predict what else is on my iPod :eek:
    /admits to avoiding RIAA labels as much as possible, as far as I know Bat For Lashes & Sarah Blasko are the only two on RIAA labels(if you're on a total boycott of the RIAA).

    Dude, how could you leave out Arcade Fire (Funeral <-this is the best album of the 2000's!)), The Sam Roberts Band (Chemical City, Love At The End Of The World), and The New Pornographers (Mass Romantic, Twin Cinema, Challengers)?!?

    This isn't a 'Post What You Have On Your Hard Drive' thread. But thanks so much for sharing. :rolleyes:

    OP, why not just enjoy the free space you have and the lack of a limit at the moment. Once it's filled it'll run and you're gonna want a bigger hard drive again.

    Looking back at this list, I see many are quite dark or gruesome. Besides, I'd say they are all worth the watch. Some are firm classics, others are offset to the well beaten track.

    I was trying to keep my suggestion list with fairly 'recent' albums, also I'm sure Arcade Fire & New Pornographers are mainstream enough everybody has heard of them at some point.
    ...oh well, guess I really don't care what is played on regular radio(I own an XM Radio w/lifetime subscription) :D
