when it stopped, did you try hitting it a couple times? i do this when mine skips...of course it still skips, but it doesn't bother me as much

i say, if you can afford it, just buy a real cheap one to replace it...

I've hitten it many times!

Maybe Mr. Electronic Boy can fix it when he gets home. Although I doubt it. He's best with things made before 1940.

This is driving me FUCKING CRAZY!!!!!!!

Have you ever tried to bake raisin scones with a fucking Discman? The headphone cord catches on the doorknobs when you're getting a knife out of the drawer, and when you wash your hands, you need to have the towel over your shoulder. Other wise the fucking thing goes clattering to the floor, your Rattle and Hum disc pops out of the player, and you find out how resilient cds are and that the Discman bounces, yet doesn't break. And you scare the shit out of your dog when you swear loudly. Oh, and flour and butter doesn't wipe off very well. The butter may stain the pretty blue finish.

And you have to have the timer in the computer room so you can hear it go off. Which it will do in 56 seconds.

You have no idea how long I stared at that line trying to figure why you would try to use a discman to bake.

Sorry! Hysteria makes me unintelligible at times.



My friend says to try one of those "head cleaner" things for cd players. I'll go get one tomorrow.

I dropped my walkman the other day (it's all I can afford). Now if I turn it certain ways the tapes slow down because one of the guards (or whatever you call it) broke off. At least that's what I think. It's annoying when you've got a lovely singer like Sarah Cracknell on and then it metamorphoses into a hideous deep voice.

my walkman met a similar fate a few years ago, which is why i had a discman
