sitting at work all day being subjected to local radio to be far, far worse.
but i have anxiety problems, and all the noise will probably make me cry :(
I get that too. Luckily my Zen is unkillable. Except when I forget to charge it and it dies mid-song...
so much so its died twice and the new one its taking FOR-EVS to turn up :(
because I have to get the bus home so i'm saving the battery. Public transport with no mps =very shit
round my way I need to drown out hip hop speakerphone fodder and angry Polish people talking loudly on their phones.
crack. its great for that relaxing feeling.
purely because of scallys playing crap msuic through them. You missed out the weirdoes who try and talk to you :(
and the busses are filled with loud children and people on day trips and people eating loudly and playing music off of their phones and ugh
is this a good reason to call in sick to work?
i've had to do my hour commute to work without my ipod all week cos i left it at my friend's house. it's shit but i have a book and the power of ignorance.
You can be completely oblivious to things, like I mean if there's someone with a knife or something, and they announce it and you just sit there without even knowing, and then you look up and realise someone's sat next to you and you have a heart attack. It's best to be alert, you know?
rather than worry about a knife-wielding maniac being in the same tube carriage as me. Coz let's face it, that's not massively likely.
But it's still possible, and then there's maniacs, and terrorists, and all sorts.
if it's a terrorist you're going to get blown up regardless. Might as well have a nice tune in your ear while it happens.
But maybe it's not a bomb terrorist. Maybe it's some maniac with a gun, and says if you get down onto the floor he won't shoot, and you can't hear, so you end up with a bullet in your head. Or if some police people come in and yell for everyone to get out, and you're just there humming away... you know?
he's sure to notice if you have headphones i
And my headphones might be the same colour as whatever top you're wearing so you can't always see them.
my top is gray and my headphones are white
that the terrorist or maniac or distressed person will be able to see the front of you, which only works if you always sit right at the back. But if you sit right at the back, you're most likely to be killed in an accident.
I'm still prepared to risk it though, y'know?
I reckon I'd notice pretty quickly that something's going on. I still have my eyes open when using the tube.
one more. And plus, on the tube people can steal things easily. So it's even worse.
who must have thought simon cowell was going to get on (as he does) near Leyton Garage. It was R&B blah of course.
of your life with no mp3 player? worse?
HAVING NO JOB
I Am! The One And Only!
good name for a sitcom?
mind you, i can tick most of those boxes ...
i love threads with 'you don't know your born' references in them. There should be more
Claire/Klaire is technically right though
a fairly clear mathematical judgement, like.
at no point did i claim to not be worse off than a homeless person. honestly...
I was just bumsucking to claire or something.
Having no music to listen to on a bus IS technically worse than having no life, once you quantify its importance no?
heh heh/tee hee/hello
homeless < no mp3 player < no mp3 player for a temporary period
I read a lot on buses.
I have Plan B or Hells Angels by Hunter S Tompson to choose from
get outta here!
It makes me nauseaous(?). Absolutely horribly sick.
Yeah its terrible.
Public transport is full of scumbags, or stinking retards. I need my iPod to take me away from their overbearing presence.
I have a love/hate relationship with my ipod.
It literally does soundtrack my travels, makes everything more vibrant and interesting, but also makes me stop thinking about stuff, which is what youre supposed to do when youre out on walks.
When i was travelling around the country with no iPod.. But then when i got it and charged it, realising it's full of absolute wank pissed me off even more.
I've had to buy a new USB cable off Amazon. :'(
