My iPod Has Issues – Family Night

30 Apr

I am sitting at the kitchen counter and seeing what is going on in the WordPress world. My wife is sitting in the chair and scrolling through her Facebook feed. My stepdaughter is in her room listening to music. We are all trying to recover from our big meal at one of the local Mexican restaurants.Los

This means that it is a good time to explore the strange world of my iPod. I am going to put in on shuffle and see what happens.

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.
