Rock of ages, still rollin’

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my psychic CD player. It’s true. The thing is totally tuned to my subconscious and is guaranteed to play the one song I really don’t need to hear. Fun!

For Hanukkah, I asked for some kind of gadget that would allow me to listen to my iPod through the regular stereo speakers or whatever. I was thinking about the Bose iPod dock thingie like the one Chuck has, but we found something EVEN BETTER.

Turns out Monster makes a cable that plugs into the back of the receiver and into the top of the iPod! Genius! All I had to do was get the charging dock set up to stick the iPod in and now I’m ROCKIN’ OUT. For $40, compared to the $400 the Bose thing costs. Look at me, all frugal and shit.

Anyway, I’ve been neglecting my iPod lately – hearing aids and earbuds just don’t mix. Plus, when do I ever GO ANYWHERE that I am in need of it? Never, that’s when. So I haven’t been managing my playlists much. Instead, I just hit “shuffle” and let it go.

What’s the first song my iPod decided to play? Let’s think a bit. There are 4111 songs loaded onto it at the present time. Roughly 300 of them are U2 songs, so that’s a pretty hefty percentage. REM, James, Phish, The Cure, and The Smiths make up another pretty hefty chunk.

The iPod decides to rock us out to Def Leppard. Aw yeah. It seems that no matter how I try to reinvent myself, I always come back to the World’s Most Hapless Band.

  1. Perhaps your ipod knows what your stereo does – you can’t take the Jersey out of the girl no matter how hard you try. You can attempt to teach her good music, but it all goes back to hair metal.
