My iPod Has Issues – Post Thanksgiving Post

29 Nov

I ate way too much, and that means my stomach is way more full than my brain. When my brain isn’t working well, that’s when we take the easy route and explore the mind of my iPod, that bipolar instrument that shoots sounds out of the speakers.Speakers

My iPod is suffering from all of the Thanksgiving festivities, as well. That’s why this issue of “My iPod Has Issues” is dedicated to those songs that have food or drink in their title.

Shuffle up and play!

My iPod Has Issues – Part 4

3 Mar

Once again, it is time to explore the dark recesses of my iPod’s mind. Some people think it’s bipolar. Some people think it’s schizophrenic. Others think it belongs alongside Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over a Cuckoo’s Nest.

That's my iPod on the left.

That’s my iPod on the left.

No matter the diagnosis, almost everyone agrees that my iPod is all over the place.

Sometimes it’s 1950s Rock & Roll. Other times it’s 1970s Punk. In between, it could be everything from Roy Acuff to Warren Zevon. Whatever it is, it plays my kind of music. Like previous therapy sessions, I am putting it on Shuffle and seeing what pops out.
