I will now do a commercial for my new T-Mobile G1 phone.

This morning I stepped out of my house with my IPOD in my hand, and I was excited to listen to the rest of the podcast I started on my walk home yesterday. I buttoned up my coat, adjusted my scarf, and I dug into my pocket to retrieve the IPOD. I whipped it out(that's what he said), pressed the play button, and my IPOD then froze right before my very eyes. Unlike a computer or any other electronic device, I could not just simply turn it off and turn it back on, at least not initially. I racked my brain trying to figure out what buttons to push to get this machine to reset, but it seemed like whatever I did failed miserably. I still had a 20-30 minute walk ahead of me, and I damn sure did not want to do that in complete silence, so a minor wave of panic came over me. Then I remembered I had my phone.

I whipped out the phone, used the touch feature to pull up google, typed in "My IPOD froze" and numerous websites came up. Then I used the touch screen once again to find the correct website to guide me, and I found out what I had to do to unfreeze my IPOD. I put my phone away, pulled the IPOD back out, reset it, started it back up again, and enjoyed the rest of my 20 minute walk listening to both a podcast and some music. Good times. This is may seem like a superfluous entry to you, but this is a pretty big deal to me, and I will not spend the rest of my mornng genuflecting to my damn phone. As you can see, it does not take much to impress me.

And yeah I thought about typing a sappy year-ending entry, but who has energy for all that bullshit. I wish myself and everyone else health and happiness, and everything else will fall into place. At least that's what I'm counting on...

When the clock strikes midnight tonight, play this song I have linked below. Shoutout to my main man Cliff who hates this song, because in his words, "The beat has too much going on":

Luchini - Camp Lo
