On Saturday night I broke my iPod Touch. Well, I didn't, but I think somebody must've stepped on it. Or perhaps a stool leg got rested on it and somebody then sat on the stool. It still plays, thankfully, but it has one of those big spider-web cracks on it. I've seen other people with such damage to their iPods/iPhones, but I always thought, "Ha, that will NEVER happen to me because I am CAREFUL!" On Saturday night, I was proven a liar!
As for iPhones, I don't have one and, guess what? I don't really want one. Ooh, blasphemy? I guess. But I have a phone, and I know how to use it, and sure I still miss my old Nokia that got stolen (bastards!!), but this phone'll do. I love my iPod, but I don't really need to use it for anything except music. And to think I'm a librarian, we of the Web 2.0 frenzy! Oh well, I'm a traitor to my kind...
Now, when I say iBands, that isn't actually any kind of gadget. I'm talking about bands that start with the letter I. Here are some of those I have in my iPod right now:
- I Can't Believe It's Not Rock - made up of Daniel Johns (Silverchair) and Paul Mac, this group brought out an EP and I think that's it.
Songs of note: "Rain", "Home"
- I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness - I believe these guys only have one album so far, but I love what they've done.
Songs of note: "According To Plan", "Lights", "The Owl"
- Icehouse - classic Aussie band from the 80s, rather iconic really.
Songs of note: "Great Southern Land", "Man of Colours", "Electric Blue"
- Incubus - I have one of their albums, and it has some good stuff.
Songs of note: "Mexico", "Wish You Were Here", "Echo"
- Incursion - there are a few bands called Incursion, but this one was a little-known Aussie grunge rock band from the 90s.
Songs of note: "Afterglow", "Ever-Ready", "Head Spins", "Monster"
- Interpol - man I love these guys! They make such beautiful music, and the guy's voice is very addictive.
Songs of note: "NYC", "Obstacle 1", "Untitled"
- Iron Maiden - I saw these guys recently and Bruce Dickinson's voice is still amazing!
Songs of note: "Flight of Icarus", "Hallowed Be Thy Name", "The Number of the Beast"
And that's all the I I've got in me right now. ;)
P.S. Following up from my previous blog entry, draft #3 is officially done!
