My iPod Has Issues – I’ve Seen Fire, and I’ve Seen Television

3 Feb

I am sitting by the fire and watching Top Gear. This show always brings out my inner race car driver. My wife is on the couch wondering why we are watching Top Gear. Apparently, it does not bring out her inner race car driver.

Earlier, we watched Bluegrass Underground. A few counties over someone has turned a cave into a concert hall, and some of the concerts are put on television. Tonight’s episode introduced us to a group called Davina and the Vagabonds. I thought they were pretty cool.Davina

The episode also brought out our inner musicians. Both of us wished we were outer musicians instead.

Before all of that, I put on my headphones, listened to the iPod and made out a test. In honor of Top Gear, Bluegrass Underground, my inner race car driver and our inner musicians, here are a few selections from the iPod that I had plugged into my headphones.

    Ballad of Davy Crockett? They just showed the series as a movie on TCM. Apparently TCM and Disney are engaged to be married. So that’s the second time in just a few weeks that song has come up. I still remember all the words to all the verses. And worse, it’s going round and round in my head. I need another tune, quick!

      Yep. Ballad of Davy Crockett. You should get a coon skin hat.

      • Marilyn Armstrong February 3, 2015 at 04:42 #

        No coonskin hat. I resisted when I was 10, I will keep the pledge. No dead raccoon on my head.

        Ever tried catching a musket ball in your teeth?
        It’s hard.

        It takes tough teeth.

    Roy Buchanan. What a guitarist. But like many other exceptional musicians, hardly known. You’re unlikely to find him on the greatest, bestest lists.

      There are a lot of unknown people who are probably better than most of the known people.

    Is that the US or the UK Top Gear?

    • Rick February 3, 2015 at 13:47 #

      The UK version. The US version does not come close to comparing.

        It is getting tired but still worth watching!
