Listening to the Past


Okay, so I’m sitting here after dinner, listening to an iPod Touch I bought for the school library. Yup, it’s in at-home testing for a few days.

First of all, I synched with my full iTunes library, tunes and video. Second, I was surprised that it has a built-in speaker. Thus, I pull up Steely Dan’s Katy Lied and let it play. Tinny little speaker. “Throw out your gold teeth and see how they roll.”

The funny thing is this: all I can think about is a very dusty, old rusty school bus taking me down a gravel road to pick strawberries. Back when I was ten or eleven, I got my first transitor radio, complete with 9V battery. A hand-me-down from an older brother. Riding the old bus to pick strawberries, I had the little transitor radio to my ear. Tinny speaker, just like the iPod Touch, and I’d hear songs like Steely Dan’s Katy Lied.

It’s funny where state-of-the-art technology can take you.
