Ted Nugent wants to put a little “Love Grenade” into your iPod on Valentine’s day. There are three of his tracks on the V-day list, along with a little obligatory Otis.
The Motor City madman says: “Picking the right mood songs and placing them in proper order could change your destiny, and set your ship of life sailing on that stormy sea known as matrimony.”
Here’s The Nuge’s V-Day Playlist:
1. “Wang Dan Doodle” — Howlin’ Wolf 2. “The Flame” — Cheap Trick 3. “Whole Lotta Rosie” — AC/DC 4. “Wango Tango” — Ted Nugent 5. “When A Man Loves A Woman” — Percy Sledge 6. “I’ve Been Lovin’ You Too Long” — Otis Redding 7. “Feels Like The First Time” — Foreigner 8. “My Love Is Like A Tire Iron” — Ted Nugent 9. “Brown Sugar” — The Rolling Stones 10. “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” — Ted Nugent
There are relationships where saying “Wang dang, what a sweet poontang a shakin’ my thang as a rang-a-dang-dang in the bell” says it all…
Nugent is also promoting a “Valentine’s Couple Hunt” where you and your sweetheart can spend February 14 stalking wild boar or exotic rams “using guns or the preferred method of the god of love.”
You’ve seen this guy. Maybe, in an unguarded moment of early-adopter smugness, you’ve even seen a friend who acted like this guy, trying to impress with a cool playlist or two.
Enter the Hipster Pod, a new “device that tricks people into thinking you’re hip.” How does it work? If your bad taste in music prevents you from getting dates, the Hipster Pod projects cool music outwards (Velvet Underground, Yo La Tengo and Sonic Youth are mentioned), while you get to listen to guilty pleasures, including bubble gum pop and Kenny Loggins.
The two-minute parody stars an everyguy named Mark who tries to impress but gets caught out listening to Celine Dion on the subway and then use the Hipster pod to rather surprising results…
It’s the first jab at tech from a team called Barely Digital, the same folks responsible for the viralicious bikini-clad “Obama girl.” Now that a Mac President is in the White House, they’ve turned to tech satire to give themselves something to do.
Funny? Yes. If there were a female version, it’d be a little too cringeworthy to laugh at, though.
Canadian freestyle skier Sarah Burke started out on the wrong foot at the Women’s Superpipe Finals at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado.
The tricks weren’t working, her rhythm was just a little bit off.
Then, according to the AP, the freestyle skier suddenly discovered her flaw – she wasn’t pumping Dr. Dre on her iPod. Burke cranked the hip-hop artist on her final run, dropped into the pipe and flawlessly hit all her stunts to win her third straight Winter X skiing superpipe title Friday night.
“Dr. Dre always pulls me through,” the 25-year-old told journalists.
With her alley-oop maneuvre slightly off, Burke decided to bag it, going with a nice, easy run on her final attempt. It was her third straight superpipe gold.
What do you put on the iPod to get you through?
White noise is getting me through the daily slalom of late…
Sloane Crosby, author of essays “I Was Told There’d be Cake” and maker of creepy dioramas, has a bewitched iPod.
When asked by the New York Times to name her iPod playlist (Marvin Gaye, Bon Iver, New Order) Sloane rants about her MP3 player, which apparently has a few issues:
The worst example of this technological tyranny has to be my iPod. Our relationship has gone from one of pleasurable convenience to a series of baroque rituals and infuriating modifications, of tricks and mysteries, of songs that my iPod considers playing (as evidenced by the flashing image of album art) but, thinking better of it, decides to supplant with Carla Bruni’s “Quelqu’un m’a dit” juuuust one more time instead.
My iPod may be possessed. It may be infuriating. It may be trying to tell me something.”
These things happen, I have a temperamental iPod, too. But it started acting up after falling under the subway tracks. A three-person rescue team fished it out, but alas, it has never been the same since. Maybe she isn’t telling us the whole story?
If a woman plays soft jazz when you come over but the top 25 played songs on her iPod are death metal, she’s not showing her true self.
The warning comes from psychologist Sam Gosling, author of “SNOOP: What Your Stuff Says About You.”
In this guide for men who want an excuse to pry, Gosling reckons her playlists will reveal whether you’ve hooked up with a potentially dangerous harpy and haven’t noticed yet.
His advice: “Look for variety not quantity. Also note the differences between the music on her iPod’s top 25 most played list vs. the music she has playing when you visit. Jazz, classical or blues suggests openness; country, pop and soundtracks suggest she is more extraverted and possibly nicer.”
