So on my way to the Gorillaz show (more on that later), I headed out of my apartment listening to The Streets‘ heart-breaking song about his late father, “Never Went to Church.” I walked about a block and a half when all of sudden the music stopped. A little like freeze dance, I stopped too, but when I reached inside my pocket, my 4-month-old Nano was gone-o.
I retraced my footsteps about 10 times, but I wasn’t able to find it. Someone walking behind me must have strolled off with it, or someone snatched it when I wasn’t looking. I usually have my hand on it at all times, but since it was raining like a mother, I was holding my umbrella.
I guess now it’s 1,000 of my songs in someone else’s pocket.
They are now the proud owners of a Nano filled with: The Raconteurs, The Strokes, White Stripes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arctic Monkeys, Fall Out Boy, South, Ryan Adams, Beastie Boys, Sondre Lerche, We Are Scientists, Jenny Lewis, Maximo Park, The Cinematics, Madonna, Morningwood, etc.
So if you happen to have a hookup with Apple or are looking to unload your new working iPod for some reason, please drop a line to me at: ipodsadness @ themodernage.org. Of if you happen to have semi-amusing/sad stories of iPod loss (like the story Mark told me about someone he knew flushing his Nano down the toilet) leave ’em in the comments. We can wallow in sorrow together.
Xmas Ipod 2005-April 2006. MIA.
