I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Death of an ipod

So, I went to buy the new Beck album yesterday (Colors) and ran into a bit of a problem.  Amazon Music has always carried everything Itunes carries, and almost always at a more competitive price.  Sure, they don't get the exclusives, like Beyonce's music, but do you really think I'm the kind of person who's going to fork over money for Beyonce?  Nope.  What I've done in the past is buy the music I wanted and then exported it to my ipod.  I did this because for years I owned Hondas that relied upon USB cables rather than Bluetooth.  Well, yesterday morning, while I was syncing my ipod to my computer, I got an error message, number 3504, which said there was something wrong and I would need to restore my ipod.  I had no problem with this, however, when I started to restore I got another error message telling me there was another, bigger issue.  All of sudden this became very complicated.  I don't like complicated.  Simple is better.  Opening files to check on Host issues?  I don't do it.  I just want to plug the damn thing into my computer and have it sync my music, and that was evidently not going to happen.  I did a factory reset on the ipod and got the same error message.  Nada.  Nothing was working. So, I sat at my desk looking at this crappy Apple product which had last all of... a year and a half, and said "shit."
No problem.  I have a Galaxy S8 with a Bluetooth link to my Nissan Rogue and the Amazon Music App is on my phone.  All my music is safe.  All I have to do is open the app and play my music.  Easy peasy.
I did 30 minutes on my trainer this AM.  I'm avoiding the elliptical since it's too much like running and running isn't good for me until the 'issue' gets fixed, and the issue is getting fixed in a little over 3 weeks.
And did the Idiot Jerk in the White House Tweet something stupid yesterday?  I don't think so, but then he went golfing again.  I wonder if the Republicans have realized that they can never, ever point to a Democrat in the White House and complain about vacations, or golfing, for that matter.  This fool takes every weekend off.  I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't jump around the Oval Office every time Friday rolled around singing "it's Friday!  it's Friday! it's Friday."  What a loser.


  1. dump was bitching about "fake news" and "crooked hillary" again yesterday. nothing to see there.

    crapple products suck ass.

    1. Oh, the same old two dimensional communication to his two dimensional base.

  2. The only thing to "see" is that he is a criminal, a thief, a liar, a sexual predator, a horrible businessman, a not-quite-a-billionaire, and clearly the worst US president EVER!!!!!!!!!!
