Set iPod to ‘Random’ and take a walk

I set my iPod to ‘Random’ and took off on a quick walk around the ‘hood(s). To be really annoying, I wrote down the song title and artist info of every song that I was listening to when I took a photo. The point? No point at all!

Editor’s note: Kenny’s photos and the songs remind me of those times when you hear a song and the lyrics relate to a current situation, place or thing. For example, you’re driving by the ocean and appropriately enough a song about the ocean is playing. Coincidence? I’m sure this has happened to many of you as well.

That was cool!  Now if I only had a camera I would try to recreate this.  Maybe there should be a forum for just this.

How is that news at all? Come on people, post pointless things like this in the forums, but don’t clutter the front page with useless crap. It should be for valid news only.

This is not a news, nor anything worth reading.

I think its very artful.

“artful”?  (runs to check his dictionary…)

Well, this is the “lounge”, no PodNN so I think it fits in.

thanks for all the feedback
the photos weren’t meant to be artsy or anything, just walking around with a camera on a Sunday afternoon basically

i’ll be doing it again next weekend, so check out the site and let me know what you think

The front page is saturated with ads and overflow of commercialism. It’s good to see something that doesn’t cost anything.

You bought an iPod! You ARE Commercialism!

I agree with ‘fred’, this is a news area, don’t clog it with useless chat. That’s what the forums are for.

Hello nerds, virgins, and internet elitists. If this “news” is useless to you, just ignore or pretend that it isn’t there. What is useless to you might be not to others. Just think that you’re not the only person browsing here.

I agree. Sometimes I am amazed how many people here rip on everything! As amazing as the ipod is I doubt there is news everyday that is cutting edge for everyone. I think this sight has tons of information and sometimes it’s not for everyone, but as Newman said just ignore it!

Interesting that I saw this because I do the same thing.  Although I generally take the photo and music together because it ‘feels right.’  still, i like it.

you know - thank you.
I miss New York (I now iive in LA) and it was really cool to see candid photos of the city.
for what it’s worth, thanks for that trip down memory lane
