iPod Addiction

I completely understand the addiction to the iPod now and I’m only a beginner.Promoipodsilored20051013

Last Christmas I gave one to my husband as a gift. He recently traveled to Nepal for a hiking/climbing adventure, but couldn’t take the iPod because it has a hard-drive that doesn’t work at high altitudes. So, of course, being techno-needy, he picked up the hard-drive-less new iPod Nano. I was left with the older one and got to play.

My main interest isn’t only with the music, although it is VERY cool to build your own playlists. I can’t wait to use it to download online teleclasses and podcasts.

My hope is that more artists start using iPods or MP3 players for the same reasons. There are two audio classes available now on ArtBizCoach.com that would fit easily on an iPod. You can also see how students are using the technology to make their own, irreverent museum tours.

This stuff is so cool!

  • My MP3 player is loaded with audiobooks. They’ve come a long way from the “books on tape” era and the downloadable files now fit on my very small Rio Forge. It’s a great way to “read” books! I highly recommend Audible.com at http://www.audible.com for downloadable books and periodicals. They often offer a free MP3 player with a subscription and their service is compatible with iPods and most MP3 players. My player has 256MB memory which holds at least two unabriged books — about 20 hours of listening — and a whole lot of bird calls (for my wild bird photography adventures). I’m currently listening to Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman and am looking forward to hearing The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe read by Michael York. Cool, indeed!!!

  • I take my I pod into my studio everyday, plug them into my speakers and put it on shuffle. It’s got about 15gbs on there so I go from Nina Simone to AC/DC to Johnny Cash and so on. I love music, more than visual art even, and I can spend 8 hours in a freezing studio because of the music on my mp3 player.
