Ipod Confidential


This morning, at my weekly IAM fellowship breakfast, we were discussing music (which is not a regular topic).  We were talking about the fact that in this digital age with ipods, it is NOT cool to just listen to top 40 or main stream music.  The COOL thing now is to have the strangest, most obscure indie band tunes our your "recently added" playlist.  BUT, if we were honest and a reporter was doing an undercover story on our ipods, it would reveal how "uncool" we really are (i.e. - my  table).  Yes, we would have maybe some unknown artist - a friend that has just started to get their music out there or some download from a band we heard about from someone else - but bottom line...we like top 40.  We like Pop music!  We have our Counting Crows, Justin Timberlake, Goo Goo Dolls, and maybe (like my friend ,Stan) Celine Dion's greatest hits.  So, it's OK - you can be honest.  We are not as cool as we would like to be.  Confession is good for the soul....
