My Ipod is named Newton. Because he is an Apple, and green. (I suppose by that logic I should've called him Granny Smith. But too late now.)
So I don't use my Ipod very constantly. If I load some new music, I take it to work and plug it into the little speaker thingy I have there. But I've never been able to make it work, to use the "plug into the car radio" deal. And I don't do a lot of carrying it around listening to it as I walk.
I've been wanting to use it lately, and it wasn't charged. This morning I found a cord in my disheveled home office and brought it in to work, plugged it into work computer USB port to charge.
And of the over 200 songs, apps, podcasts and other items on it (yes, I realize this is insanely low for a 4 GB Ipod), the ONE that immediately started playing was a radio interview with RedLefty, the band that Tennyson was in in Lawrence, KS when he died. I posted a link to that podcast here in case you are interested. He is the drummer, and the one with the fantastic baritone laugh. Man, I loved that laugh. Still do. If only he could have stayed in the laughing place.
No mistake, I think, in what my first musical selection was this morning. Thanks for that, Newton.
