The Haunting of the iPod

0
Well it appears that something is going crazy recently. Only happens when I am at work. But I think my iPod might have some sort of ghost or something is going crazy.

So I will be sitting here exploring the work related issues and then I will hear some noise coming from behind me. I charge my phone and iPod while I am sitting at work just so I have the juice to keep musically and phone satisfied. I gotta have my music and all that fun stuff. I did get a new ringtone for my phone that I hijacked from Gizmodo the ringtone for the new iPhone.

So anyways I look over and see that my iPod decided to play Weird Al – White and Nerdy from his Straight out of Lynnwood which is a town here in WA state. I haven’t really researched into why he named the album that. But not much of a town Lynnwood I have never heard anyone say.

Dude: “Tristan, Dude, Yo, Sup Man. We gotta go to lynnwood to find some chicks.”
Tristan: “Chicks, Interesting. I would like to find some. But lynnwood?”
D: “Yeah, Dude, Yo. That is where all the hottie mchotties hang out man. You gotta pimp out that shit”
T: “Hmmm Pimping eh? I got my purple hat right here. Let’s roll out”
D: “Word Up.”
T: “Man that is a tight ass awesome cool shit of neat awesome nice”

Well maybe that did happen. (No it really didn’t happen. If you think it did. Well I don’t normally talk like a Yo-Sup Dude Talk)

So anyways. My iPod just started playing Weird Al. So I look over hit pause and then go back to the menu on the iPod. Silence for another 45 mins or so and then the master of tunes Mr. Frank Sinatra starts playing behind me with “I’ve got the World on a String”. Now odd that my iPod would choose to play those two songs. Very different. One is a parody of a Rap song that I am not famaliar with. The other is by one of my favorites Mr. Frank Sinatra.

I do ponder that I am White and Nerdy but do I have the world on a string? Is it sitting on a Rainbow?

So after that I paused it again and sent a few IM’s to people to see what they thought. But as with most IM conversations about technology when I ask a question they are short lived and people just humor me till I shutup about anything tech. Most are like “I thought you were the tech guy” I had this issue happen with my old 4th Generation 20GB Black and White iPod. It would randomly start to play Green Day – I fought the Law which resulted in it having 418 plays and most other songs having 15-20 plays on my top 25. I solved that by doing a factory restore. It takes a long ass time to load 26GB of Music over USB to an iPod. But anyways my iPod is being haunted or it’s a software bug. I tend to think it’s the latter but interesting to ponder why those two songs.

Hmmm Monday… Weekend just happened. Should I talk about the weekend. What happened so interesting over the weekend. I did have a few things. But we shall save that for another time.

I must finish this blog because the Black Knight from Monty Python’s Holy Grail said he would bite my legs off if I didn’t wrap this up soon. Cheers Everyone! Digging the feedback.

P.S. Here is an image I found amusing.

White Cat Chases a Deer. Own3d!

Edit: Well doing some research on Weird Al he was born in Lynnwood, CA not Washington. Anyways no edits were made to the post. Just this added line. =)

    Tristan, only you would have a haunted iPod. Actually, I think mine might be haunted too. If I want to randomly play my videos, it will only play the same four videos. This happens no matter what video I start with. Creepy huh? Hope you had a good work day!

    Alright today the iPod Decided it wanted to play U2 Vertigo. It was odd it started playing for 30 seconds and then it switched over to the interface where it was playing and you could manage volume and so forth.
