IO: I finally own an MP3 player

My baby:

I just ordered a green one. Now I'm finally "hip", "groovy", and "with it". Though I'm sure what "it" is will change shortly.

Nice. I put getting one off for a long time, but when I finally did it really changed my music listening experience. I dig it.

That looks pretty cool. Will it be able to contain all of the joyful indietastic tunes you possess?

I sure hope so. It's only 2 GB's, so I need to stop being such an audiophile; it's 128 kbps from now on for me.

What current "piece of crap" do you own? iPod?

I have nothing against iPods BTW, but I've just read so much negative press concerning them, plus they're so overpriced that I just can't bring myself to pick one up, and I can't understand why anyone else would when there are better alternatives.

You could always rotate stuff in and out. You'll be able to hold around 200-250 songs, which is pretty good.

At least the price is right. The deal I got was $120 for the player, plus 6 months of free Rhapsody (Which I already pay for each month, so I'll just unsubscribe, use the 6 months, and get back on. Sweet deal).

Oh heeell no! You think I'm made of money??

I have some off-brand 256 mb (yes... that's right... 256 fucking megabytes ) made by Koss

Actually it works pretty well but for the size constraints alone it's time for a new one...

That is a good deal.

About iPods, they do have their faults, but after having owned one for close to 4 years, I have to say they are close to the coolest inventions ever (along with the toilet, home computer, and Jaleel White, but that's a different story.)

And with the video iPods, being able to go, "fuck you Coolio, I'm going to watch 'American Beauty' right now" is pretty rewarding.

My friends with other MP3 players are the ones who have the problems with their devices.

I still love CDs, if that helps any.

Oh, no, I have an iPod, it's all good. I just mean that you are way too groovy for me now, with all that hip slang you're tossing around. I can't compete with that. Pretty soon you're gonna have all of these radical new friends, and you will totally forget about the times we had together that were so deck.
