one flight down

a few years ago, prior to christmas, a young kubas decided he wanted to buy an ipod. nay...not just any ipod...but a top-of-the-line-brand-spankin'-new ipod mini. silver. dead sexy.

fast forward 2 years or so.

about a month ago we had a HUGE thunder/lightning storm. el ipodo (that's how you say it in spanish) was charging when ENORMOUS lightning bolt touched down about 1/2 mile from our house. instant power outage. the microwave began beeping, the fridge started shaking, and only god knows what happened to my ipod. it just hasn't been the same--no matter how long i charge the sucker--the battery is always dead.

so i have put my ipod to rest.

but...this brings me to the subject of itunes. sure, after a few years now, i've finally found what floats my boat when listening to music: playlists described by mood. (i know people have been doing this for years now...but hey, it took me a little bit to jump on the bandwagon)

various playlist titles include, but are not limited to, "power loon," "mellow," "upbeat," "scream," and perhaps my favorite, "female dog, please." (i've stopped swearing, you see) i'll give +10 bonus points to anyone who can come up with a new, funky fresh playlist title for me. it has to describe some type of mood--it doesn't necessarily have to be an adjective--i just want something that would fit into my life.

in other news, some have asked about my college/life plans. here goes.

some of you have been informed...others have no idea...that i would like to be a teacher. (what's that? a conservative helping people? it can't be!) oh but it is. i would like to teach something social studies related--geography/gov/general econ--something along those lines because, really, those are the only classes i understand.

i applied to the U, clemson, and BSU. the way i figure, if i get rejected by BSU it's a sign from God Almighty that i'm not supposed to go to college. i'm not really sure which college is my #1 or #2 at this point, but you can be rest assured that BSU is #3. it's more of that..."cheap-cost-guaranteed-acceptance-half-of-brainerd-high-school-will-go-there" type of school.

now you know. mustache out!

Good work on wanting to be a teacher. I'm proud of you, and you will make a great one.

But the fact that you have a playlist called Power Loon counteracts all my warm feelings.

As the son of two BSU alumni, I think you should go to the U.

i think you should make a series of playlists named after christina aguilera hits. you know, "fighter," "dirrty," "beautiful," "ain't no other man,"... "genie in a bottle"? yes. definitely.

Um, there's no mustache playlist? As far as your college choices, I'm pretty sure that you'll get accepted to one of them. And I'd put lots of money on you getting into the U. I see you being a teacher kinda like Deebs, where you complain about teaching all the time, and the stupid kids in your classes, but deep down inside you really like it, and you enjoy making fun of the stupid answers they put on their papers.

No. Tay had a list of sound track music called that. Just think about that before you name a list that.

A playlist entitled "Failed my (insert class name here) test"
