iA - iPod Anonymous

Friday, May 13, 2005

I am taking multitasking to the nth level.

Or so I say.

Now, I don't know if it is great or what not, but, "Hello, my name is Daniel and I am addicted to my iPod. It started with a couple of songs and then music wasn't good enough, so I started to record lectures and lessons of things that I wanted to learned and now I've moved on to the audiobooks.

It started with David Sedaris, then I moved on to "Who Moved my Cheese," "Hamlet," "Aloft" by Chang-rae Lee, and I just purchased, "A Short History of Nearly Everything" by Bill Bryson and "Ulysses" by James Joyce. I now have ambitions of self education. It's becoming too much. It is no longer enough to simply enjoy the music, noooo. Now I have to try to enlighten and better myself.

Look at this shit, now I'm blogging and I have a homepage.

www.homepage.mac.com/happylunatic (my shameless plug)

I am becoming so utterly technologically dependent that I might as well look into installing an electric socket into my gut and use the residual fat, caused by a lack of exercise and excessively carb rich foods, to power all this shit.

I'm also one of those assholes that has accessorized the iPod with silicon condoms to protect it from scratches. I've got the armbands and clear screen protectors. It's getting too much. I've got the fucking cables and the adapters. I ordered an extra official iPod earphone complete with the little remote control. I've got the iPod FM tuner and the audio recorder. Oh, and I'm the asshole that wasn't happy with just the 30gig ipod photo...NOOOOO....I had to buy the 512 iPod Shuffle.

I'm addicted to my iPods.

Pretty soon I'm going to get the webfeeds and then I'm going to be the hard drive of useless information and opinions that I'm never really going to use.

Maybe my addiction is a cry for help, because I think of my iPod's as my nourishing mother. I'm never alone now. I'm never alone.

I used to think Bill Gates was bad, but if you think about it, computers should be bumbling and incompetent. If they become to perfect like Apples, (another shameless plug for Apple because like Forrest Gump, I own stock-AAPL). Steve Jobs is my Leader. My Leader. I will do what you say my leader.

Then again, it ain't all that bad. In the last couple of weeks, I've read (listened) to more books then I have in a long time. I've been relatively calm and collected and shit. I'll finish this thought later. I have to go teach.
