iPod Shennanigans

Wicked little project bringing a Gen5 iPod into 2022.

I've always been the sort of person who struggles to do anything without some sort of music going on in the background. A long time ago this was with a little mp3 player, then an iPod, and eventually on to a phone with Spotify.

I realised something not so long ago - I was being very lazy. I'd often just play my weekly/daily mix, or some playlist I made up a long time ago. I'd never really think about what music I liked + what music I wanted to listen to. I think this is in part due to the fact that almost any music was available - which made choosing even more difficult.

Since abandoning streams I fully buy into Ellie's sentiment: Discovering, buying, selecting and consuming music should never have been made so disposable.
