What's your iPod look like?
I've been in the habit since I got my first real iPod a few months ago of putting mostly choice songs instead of full albums on there, but I'm tryin to go old school and start filling it mostly with the whole start-to-finish record. I hate succumbing to this A.D.D. generation (lawl) mentally of listening to a song or even half a song then changing it incessantly, which modern technology gives you the choice of doing and even promotes. What are your guys listening habits when it comes to the iPod? Hit singles or full albums? Post what you're jammin these days too if you want, here's the records I've got on mine right now:

Oh god, I've got 6,000 songs on mine, so I'm not even going to try and list everything. I bought an 80GB model so I'd never have to move things on and off of it; I can just keep filling it up. The vast majority is full albums, though. Everything is meticulously labeled and organized: correct tracklist order, correct spelling, album artwork, and so on.
"COLONEL KLINK, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?!"
I'm one of the 5 people left between the ages of 15 and 30 who doesn't have an MP3 player in any capacity.
"COLONEL KLINK, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?!"
80 GB Video Classic, so it fits my whole collection. I have all the CDs I own on there (and no other music, I'm still a purist ), a handful of Anthony Bourdain episodes, and three comic book movies.
EDIT: Oh, and how do I listen to it? If I'm working out alone I put the whole fucking thing on shuffle, why not. But the other 90% of my listening is full albums.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
ADD - I'm glad to see you've got some BOC on there!
Symphony X 2-21-12
Iron Maiden 8-9-12
Mine looks like the blue one. and it has all my music on it.
As for listening tendencies. I actually have a full blown system for doing this. I make a playlist for each artist, which can include full albums, or just the songs from each album that I like. For instance, here's my Dio playlist:
Man On The Silver Mountain
Run With The Wolf
A Light In The Black
Long Live Rock 'N' Roll
Gates Of Babylon
Kill The King
Children Of The Sea
Heaven & Hell
Lonely Is The Word
Turn Up The Night
The Sign Of The Southern Cross
The Mob Rules
Falling Off The Edge Of The World
Stand Up And Shout
Caught In The Middle
Don't Talk To Strangers
Straight Through The Heart
Rainbow In The Dark
Shame On The Night
The Last In Line
I Speed At Night
One Night In The City
Egypt (The Chains Are On)
King Of Rock & Roll
Rock 'N' Roll Children
Sacred Heart (Live)
All The Fools Sailed Away
Naked In The Rain
I Could Have Been A Dreamer
Letters From Earth
Master Of Insanity
Sins Of The Father
As you can see, sometimes songs from multiple artists will go into the same playlist, particularly when the sound doesn't change that much in an artists career. I also do this with Helloween/Gamma Ray, Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, and Hellhammer/Celtic Frost. An exception to this rule would be Black Sabbath (the Ozzy years) and Ozzy's solo career, because to me those two bands are two separate entities, whereas with Dio...not so much.
What I used to do was listen to each playlist I had in alphabetical order. This process would, as you could imagine, take a very long time. Then I got tired of doing that, because after a while that sort of thing would require an exhausting amount of emotional investment. Now I just try and go through a new album I may have bought during the day, along with putting an artist playlist on shuffle for five songs.
I could DIIIIIIIIE! Or worse, DIIIIIIIIIIIIE!

It really is the best one so far, other than lack of album art, lyrics or gapless playback.
Usually I stick to albums or artists. The last few have been
