This article in the New York Press, talks about the all too often human psyche of jealousy.
"THE BLINDING WHITE cords flowing out of my sublimely waxed ears say it all: I'm in no mood for talking, and my income bracket makes cumbersome CDs so unnecessary, so Second Wave. With thousands of songs from my iPod at my polished fingertips, I can now walk through life effortlessly, angelically, shielded by the anodized aluminum of my futuristic listening device. I can strut with confidence and disinterest past those in my chosen path. I'm cut off from your dirty world by my ear buds and their enhanced sound and noise-suppression features. I'm a creature of advertising, a walking cliche with 25-minute skip protection and Volkswagen dreams. Shit, my profile even resembles the faceless, platonic form in the billboard."
I mean, give me a break!... I take great offence that we iPod'ians should be marginalised as some sort of fashion conscious, Sunday Times reading, urbanite clique.
Were not Volkswagen drivers, we don't wink when we see another iPod'ian on the train.
Im sorry, the only reason they moan about people who have iPod's, (heh heh, im gonna say it), is because they can't affort one! I feel a whole lot better now. :)
