I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
I crossed many states just to stand here now, my face all hot with tears / I crossed city, and valley, desert, and stream, to bring my body here

So What’s the Volume Control For, Then?

The level of inanity with which people treat their right to complain never fails to amaze me.

Turn it down, people, turn it down.

Apple Releases Software to Set IPod Volume
CUPERTINO, Calif. Mar 29, 2006 (AP) — Owners of recent iPods will now be able to set how loud their digital music players can go. Apple Computer Inc., facing complaints and a lawsuit claiming the popular player can cause hearing loss, made the setting available as part of a new software update Wednesday. The free download applies to the iPod Nano and the iPod models with video-playback capabilities.

Incidentally, every iPod since day one has shipped with Soundcheck which essentially does this by leveling all the sound.

It never fails to amaze me how a headline can spin out of control, even though I’ve been part of making it happen in the past.
