My iPod Has Issues – Brain Break

12 Aug

If you scroll down the blog, then you will see a recent post looking into the confines of my iPod. Usually, I like to put some time between those sessions. It gives my iPod’s brain a break from the constant analysis. However, there are times when you have to go back in and figure out what is going on.

Besides that, school is about to start, and my brain needs a break. The best way to do that is to crank up the music and see what the iPod chooses.Brain Break

My iPod Has Issues – Color Coded

7 May

I was listening to one of the stations on Sirius satellite radio and noticed something going on with the songs. They all had green in their title. Eventually, the DJ came on and explained that they were playing songs about colors.Notes

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.
