Pod People

There’s a long list of things I don’t believe in. Decaffeinated coffee. Fairies. Ghosts. Gods. Edited volumes that are worth a shit. Angels. That Coke and Pepsi are equivalent. Vacuum cleaners that don’t lose suction. Reincarnation. Baggage fees. Jack & cokes. That Avatar was a good movie. The list goes on…

But I do believe that my ipod has magical powers. It does. Granted, all the music on my ipod is music I put there. I get that. But how does “random shuffle” know to pick the perfect tunes for a rainy intoxicated afternoon? How does it know that? How does it know that I need a post-writing music session? How does it know my type and degree of intoxication? How does it know the weather? I believe my ipod to be wise. Maybe I should sober up before the toaster starts talking to me. I gotta go. I have a strange and urgent need to make cinnamon toast.

  1. Well maybe your ipod could come teach mine a lesson. Mine always gets stuck on the same set of songs that I constantly skip over and hardly ever plays certain ones that I really like.

  9. My iPod does a pretty good job of picking music, except when I used my shuffle a lot. The autofill on that would stick some of the most random music. I once got an ipod full of almost nothing but opera. Wouldn't have been too bad but it was right before a trip to the gym.

  11. I think it's due to psychic powers. My iPod also seems to know my mood and what's going on in the world, and my life, in general.

    But I'm pretty sure it's the owner who projects these desires onto the iPod. The rest of you need to get to some meditation classes, stat.
