My iPod Has Issues – Duck Dude Edition

20 Dec

There are a myriad of topics I could write about. Christmas is on its way. There’s a big trip in our future. Of course, there’s also the big controversy about the guy who makes duck calls and became a television star. As I tweeted, he has the right to his own opinion, but he doesn’t have the right to his own television show. As American citizens, we have freedom of speech. As employees of private corporations, that freedom has consequences.

In honor of the trouble that the duck guy has gotten himself into, I give you a classic movie poster.Duck You Sucker

I could write more about that, but I am tired of that show and that controversy. I would rather take the easy way out and write about my iPod, my bipolar friend who entertains me on my journeys through the world. As always, shuffle up and play. Hold on. This time, let’s turn it up to 25.

“Ain’t That a Shame” by Fats Domino

    I don’t see how anyone with good taste in music could have any complaints about that list.

      I thank you, and my iPod thanks you.

    I guess my iPod also has issues. It’s nice to know I’m not alone.

      That is a good feeling. I’m happy to know that there are other iPods out there with musical taste.

        I don’t have an ipod, but I’ve got a couple of USB sticks with about 800 songs on them – which I stick into my USB port in my car.
        If you can’t stand my singing … you better Duck Sucker !

        I bet you have some good stuff on there.

    Have you heard Lindi Ortega? Canadian based in Nashville. I love her new album, “Tin Star”. Might be that this kind of thing is commonplace in Nashville, but this one has made its way over to England. Going to see her play in London in January.

      I don’t know about her, but I will definitely look her up.
