Modcast #265: Doin' The iMod Shuffle III

This is the modern world. So proclaimed The Jam back in 1977. But how much more modern is the world today, as it is complete with iPods and mp3 players and more portable music than you can shake a tailfeather at?

When I first got into the mod scene portable music was a cassette tape played on a three pound Walkmen. Cassettes typically held a dozen songs, maybe 18-20 if you made a Ramones mixtape. But that was the best you could do if you wanted your music to go mobile.

Well, this indeed is the modern world. Now I have an iPod that has upwards of 6,000 songs on it, a phone that has a couple thousand more, and a laptop with a digital catalog of just over 30,000 songs. And in this digital musical dream world I have become a slave to shuffle.

So this week I'm bringing back the iMod shuffle. The whole show was picked out by my iPod's shuffle. This installment of the iMod shuffle is the result of a recent trip to the dog park with Kali Shiva and Dick Gibson (she's a goddess, and he's a dick). Anyhow, this modcast mix really did come up in exactly this order. That's the only rule for the iMod shuffle, I play it as it came up on the iPod -- these exact songs in exactly this order, no substitutions.

Have fun Doin' the iMod Shuffle.
