I don't want an iPod. I've never used an iPod. Like electronic organizers and hover-bikes, they're just another doohickey I don't need and have no interest in wasting time learning how to use. I have a music player that's modestly-priced, reliable and only plays music. I like that that's all it does, as opposed to: my taxes, my hair and a great impersonation of Christopher Walken.

So. Just when I'm sick of hearing my coworker gush about her new 8gb iPod Touch, a friend who, apparently, is made entirely of serendipity, sends me this:

Sony Releases New Stupid Piece Of Shit That Doesn't Fucking Work


I am vindictated. And sleepy. Seacrest out, yo.

  1. That video is fucking hilarious. Confession: I have an iPod - it's three years old and only 30mb. It's adequate for me though.

    I'm a Luddite about cell phones. I don't want a phone that takes/sends email or photos and downloads the NY Times. I want a phone that takes/sends phone calls. That's all I require from any phone. Why is that so hard for cell phone manufacturers to understand?

  2. Hah! I'm the reverse--Luddite about mp3 players but cool with Swiss Army cellphones as long as they don't drop calls. And still work if they're dropped a few, or ten times. I just use the apps that amuse me and ignore the rest.

    But my mp3 player? No video screen, just a display that reads out title, and track, etc. The way Frodo intended. I don't see why I would need to watch movies on my mp3 player, or have it teach me Japanese, or monitor my blood pressure.

    Although, if the manufacturers ever make a phone that's also an electronic reader, that could hold fifty books, or something . . . I'd be on that crazy on a Christian.

    Ah, if only McCain could take Palin with him, in 2012. . . .
