My iPod sucks… my radio sucks more.
I used to love my iPod. When I got all the essential tracks and artists on it all at once I felt vindicated! “Finally a music world that is all my own and of only my liking.” There, I’ll listen to it all the time and I won’t need anything else. That was 5 years and three iPods ago. Nothing wrong with the old iPods… I just kept upgrading. Anyway…
I spent hours downloading tracks from my numerous CDs ( I have about 1000 left since I purged the rest) and iTunes songs I’ve paid for and maintain on iTunes.
Now the problem… and I bet this has happened to you to. I am bored out of my mind with the stuff I have on my iTunes and iPod. BORED… Freaking bored! I haven’t listened to my iPod in 4 months… I’m bored!
So when I’m in my car listening to the radio and it’s all the crap I’ve overplayed on my iPod and what’s worst all the other songs I wouldn’t be caught dead having on my iPod!
When I get home I hit the net. 30 minutes on Pandora is fine for background listening but for conscious consumption Pandora’s music genome seems like it came from the mind of a retard.
Don’t even get me started about facebook and myspace! The amount of music on there is so vast that it’s unmanageable! Any moron with a keyboard or Garageband on their Mac does not make for music I want to listen to 99% of the time and bumping into that 1% can take hours. Hours I don’t have.
Play me something new that you like. Not a freakin’ research study spreadsheet. Give me something that gives you, yes you MR. DJ or in reality MR. programmer. I’m ready to listen… just as long as the next song isn’t Jeremy by Pearl Jam.
