First thing’s first. No one is
paying me to post this. [Note: if you want to, though, the PayPal
link is on the left] Now that we got THAT out of the way, let’s get down to it. September 2014, my iPod Nano finally succumbed to too many
drops and started to bust open at the top.
I had gotten it second hand and I was not about to lay out the cash for
any Apple product at the time.
I went with the Sony NWZ-E380 Walkman and it served me masterfully for
years. Gym duty, outdoor workouts,
sitting on the couch reading/writing, yard work and most importantly, DAILY
droning out of office chatter. “Well why don’t you use your phone for all that, Phlip?” Thanks for asking, I USED to use my phones for all of that, but I
found myself in possession of charger-dependent phones due to the constant need
of charge due to 8-hours-a-day constant usage.
Anyway. Syncing the Sony last week
brought me to the realization that it has met its demise.
I sent it on to glory (did you sing that line?

The funny thing
about the government getting involved in shit is how quick they are to complain

But let them be the one driving the narrative and the media
they just hated are their best fucking friends.
I got shook down
and, let’s face it, robbed by two rogue FBI inspectors who quite apparently
entered no paperwork on their interaction with me as they tried to get my
source of income and not do what was right by the American people as far as
national security goes. And I KNOW I was
… at least I know now. When I was at it, all I knew is that I was
trying to make the best of a bad situation of my own design. Domestic and international laws were really
the least of my concerns.
I should probably meet Santa again
on Christmas …
