This is the great present which Mark got me as a my main Christmas present. Love it, and now I can listen to music without deafening everybody else. For such a small object it makes a very loud noise. And although it has a lot of loose ends, it is a tidy slim little thing.
All sorts of music has been downloaded today, including a bit of Led Zeppelin. Listening to Led Zep's 'Rock and Roll' on this i-pod is something of an antidote to post-Christmas torpor. Although hugely powerful and raw, this track is also poised on a knife-edge, tidy almost. Controlled power, and reminds me of that advert you used to see (in England, for tyres, I think) of the athlete's foot poised at the start line in a stiletto shoe. All sorts of wild and baroque guitar riffs and drum lines which miraculously come together at the end of the musical phrases. A bit like this i-pod with it's tidying up of all the ends in the centre.
