goodbye, we hardly knew ye

i finally got my sad repair box to ship back frowny iPod face Roland II the electric boogaloo, back to apple. it’s a little sad. i think that, perhaps, the name Roland might be cursed. the new iPod will have a shinynew name that will, of course, promise new and good things for us. and hopefully when i hit shuffle, he/she doesn’t play a super lame song.

    His name should be something Funky.

    Graham, for example, would be a fine name, based on gramophone, but altered to be a proper enough name that people whould really wonder who this “Graham” person is that makes you so happy you wiggle your behind.

    graham is a good name, but i have a super secret name already picked out for the new iPod. it’s the best name ever.

    also, i had a very very good friend in college whom i called graham. and while i did adore him like non other, he’s not really iPod worthy, you know?

    Oooh, can’t wait to find out the name!

    Mine is named Ursula. She’s an iPod Photo, so she’s plus-sized.

    I think that, in honor of the movie I am currently watching, you should call the new iPod “Professor Falken”, or just “Falken” for short. Or maybe even “Joshua”. Those would all be excellent choices for a semi-intelligent computerized device, don’tcha think?

    joshua is out. i love that name and hope to use it sometime in the future for like a child or a puppy.

    If I had an iPod, I would probably name him Emmett. Or maybe Julius. If it was anything other than white, I might name him Harold or Horton. If I had a black iPod, I would name her Raven (which is cliche and stupid, but I might do it anyway) or Constance, and I would pretend that she was one of those little Italian grannies in their black dresses and veils, and I would only play sad songs on her. If I had a Shuffle, I would name him Ichabod or Wilt.

    Of course, I’d need an iPod first.

    I’m a firm believer in cursed names. That’s why I’ll never date another Andy. Or Rob. Or Steve.

    I have a mini iPod named Ms. Jackson, and a iShuffle named Dick. I am betting you name your iPod Rob Gordon.

    Marie DeSalle? YES, I am sure of it!!
    And the first song should be “Baby I Love Your Way”!!!!

    Jason is the king of cursed names.
