Today, I just picked up a 8GB Ipod from Best Buy. Everybody I know pretty much has one, so I figure it’s time that I would get one for myself.
I set it all up and it’s all good to go. I purchased 14 songs from Itunes from the $15 Itunes card I purchased at Best Buy along with it.
I purchased a mix of local music and national music. Just bought some of these songs: Lady Gaga “Poker Face”, Weird Al Yankovic “Craigslist”, Soundgarden “Outshined”, Phish “Down With Disease”, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Gold Lion”, Joe Nacco “Crazy Scientologist”, Sean Rowe “Old Black Dodge”, Lunic “Love Me”, Railbird “Locomotive”, a couple of Teenage Casket Company songs, and several more.
Itunes store can be pretty useful ’cause if I hear songs on the radio that I really like and if I don’t want to buy the full album, I could just buy that one tune.
I know I said I hated Lady Gaga many times, I still do, but I’ve said a few times in the blog that I like her one song, “Poker Face”. “Poker Face” is actually a really good song that I can listen to, but the rest of her stuff, no. I figure “Poker Face” would be a good tune to work out to, that’s why I picked that one.
Now that I think about it, I don’t have to buy Phish albums on CD at all. I can simply buy all the Phish albums from Itunes. Itunes record store is much cheaper than the record stores at the malls.
I mainly bought an Ipod so I can have some tunes to work out with. Listening to music while working out at the gym or where ever is a pretty important part of the workout. It makes you work faster and harder, gives you more energy. Music does that.
Next I need to buy an Ipod arm band, so I can just have the Ipod on my arm while I’m working out.
