I can’t do it!

Before my iPod, I had my CD player. Before my CD Player, I had my walkman. Regardless of the technology, I’ve always had music. My family is unbearable without music to shut them out. I can only tune them out so much.

It’s not just my family…I tune everything and everyone out when I’m alone. In the car, when I’m walking down the street, in class right up till the professor starts talking…No matter how short the distance is, my earphones go in before I leave the building. This aggravates the hell outta my boss but I don’t care.

My music. My soul.

My iPod (Well, I think this is the 3rd one I’ve gotten since my first one 5 years ago) is my lifeline. My taste varies from Turkish to English to Techno to Rap to 80s rock to Hip-hop to Love Songs to Godsmack…all within the span of 2 minutes. It’d be hard to carry so many CDs with me. I prefer to put my iPod in my back pocket, ignore the stares and just do my thing.

My music reminds me of the good times, the bad times, the could-bes, the “I wish” moments…& everything in between. Music is consistent. Music is dependable. Music is my muse. Music is my block.

Music is my everything. Therefore, my iPod is my “I can’t live without it” gadget. Cell phone? Eh. I can go a day or two without it. My laptop? I’ve managed.

The two weeks I just had without my iPod? Pure fucking torture.


What is your “I can’t live without it” gadget?

    I love my iPod in supermarkets… I hate grocery shopping and the other fuckwits arguing about whether or not they need more yoghurt! Music saves the world baby

    My cell phone. I’m lost without it.

    I don’t really HAVE one of a ‘can’t live without’ device. My mp3 player and cell phone would come the closest, but I COULD live without them if I so chose to do so!!!

    Thanks for the pimpage! I actually had your blog in mind when I wrote mine.

    I can’t live without my mp3 now…it’s even taken precedence over my cell phone! *gasp* And that’s a good thing right now because if not I would be constantly checking it to see if someone has called…

    My iPod, my cell phone, and my computer(with internet).

    Some days I feel like a recluse. During the week I take care of the girls and study all day and go to school at night. I need somewhere I can just have fun for the sake of having fun. The internet gives me that place without needing a babysitter.

    I need my iPod because I need to be able to take my music with me.Music gives me a release and helps center me. I use music like some of my friends use pot, to help deal with the parts of reality I don’t really want to deal with.

    I need my cell phone because I can’t remember shit and need to be able to call people and have them tell me what I forgot.Plus my kids need to be able to get hold of me in case of emergency.

    I used to have an iPod, but not anymore. I may invest in one soon, as music is something I like to have around me constantly. I have a friend who is, in my opinion, a world class DJ (he’s dj’ing at Co Co Deville’s in Hollywood tonight–that’s the new “IT” night club), and I like to have him fill up my iPod/MP3 player for me.

    But I don’t really have a gadget that I “can’t live without.” I went long enough without them to realize that they’re nice to have, but life doesn’t stop if I don’t have them.

    I honestly don’t like walking around with anything in my ears. If your hearing is taken away, it makes it that much easier for you to be attacked. I need an Ipod for road trips and stuff, though.

    I can’t live without a camera phone. I have to be able to take pics of the baby and send them to friends.

    The internets. I think the longest I went without using the internets was like about 5 months. And then they dragged me kicking and screaming to sign up for Myspace back in the days.
