Disaster last night, when my Sony cd cassette recorder WITH REMOTE refused to play my (cd) audio book. I immediately flicked about with it and finally got it working, but it’s happened a few times lately, and my old cassettes don’t always play – it might be a Sony, but it’s not alright.
To the interweb thing. Well goodie, Sony doesn’t even make this model anymore. Ebay doesn’t sell it. If I want a cd player I have to buy an ugly box thing and manually move the radio dial myself!! No remote controlled presets here!!! As for cassette players…
It’s a whole new world my dear. I will have to – what, MP3 it? Ipod that? I haven’t a clue.
Naturally I have turned to youth and called Lilsister a whopping 9 years younger than me. I began my tale of woe and as soon as I said ‘MP3’ she audibly moved the phone from her ear whilst muttering ‘I don’t get that shit’. I asked her not to underestimate the significance of the information she was receiving and she laughed. How can I listen to my plays now?
I am going to have to (Jesus) sit down with Hangsandwich or Boo Boo, both IT experts, to get them to explain to me how to work an ipod and then how to transfer my millions of cds to said ipod, and how to listen to them on what I believe is called an ipod ‘dock’ (headphones are for walking). I pity them already, and I am afraid.
There is hope, as I type I am listening to rainforest sounds on youtube via the interweb. We stress heads like our rainforest sounds, you see.
