ARE THESE FACTS, IN ANY WAY, CONNECTED?: i love fucked up noise buys an ipod; within a fortnight everything sounds uninspiring, lost, distant. I always wondered, to be honest, about the nursery rhyme about the woman with "rings on her fingers and bells on her toes/ she shall have music wherever she goes" - it's one of those things that sounds like a really cool idea but, when you think about it more closely, could actually turn out to be a curse. Like an aural midas touch. Maybe the iPod - all that music, always with you - could be a similar curse. Plus, you lose that age-old stand-by to exit dull pub conversations: "Sorry, but I have to run home as I have an overwhelming urge to hear the Sea Urchins right now."

Argh! You've just given me an overwhelming urge to listen to the Sea Urchins (Please Rain Fall if you must know) and I don't have an iPod. And I won't get home until 7:30!!!

I'm trying my best to avoid thinking about this, the bloody thing cost four hundred quid. There is definitely a problem with having so much music I can never really decide what I actually want to listen to; I'm always worried that I could be listening to something better. Ha, serves me right for being greedy
