Meat Loaf At 75 MPH

I came home from having a little din-din tonight with a friend and was doing a little surfin' o the blogs. I'm thinking.... yeah, a little IPod on shuffle mode sounds like a keen idea......but....

I admit I'm a little green when it comes to the ways of IPodery, but I've had this thing for a good 3 or 4 months, used it almost daily ever since, and bought all the bling-bling accessories, including a battery pack that allows me to listen to non-stop tunes if I should ever go "Around the World In 80 Days" in a hotair balloon, without recharging and an over-priced sounds-better-than-my-home-theatre speakers charging gizmo. I'm no techno-geek, but I kind of know my way around the IPod. Until tonight.

I have zero idea what I did, but the damn thing is stuck at warp speed. No kidding, it's going 75 mph and I can't stop it. Well, I can stop it, but I can't stop it from trying to break the sonic barrier. Somehow Meat Loaf singing Bat Out Of Hell III* just doesn't have the same punch in Mini Me-voice.

Geez. Will I be forced to listen to my tuneage (?) in hyper-speed? F. It's way too late to be dealing with this. Crudamundo.

I guess I'll go back to the old-fashioned way of listening to music. The CD. (insert sarcasm)

*fyi: Hey, I didn't think I'd like the Bat III CD, either, but I'm just sayin': buy this sucker. Fantastic music. Tremendous angst. This CD goes from hard rock to metal to pop to gospel to "Phantom of the Opera" to good ole Diane Warren songs and back again. It's got John 5 from Marilyn Manson and Nikki Sixx. Are ya kidding me? Tremendous. And previously blogged Kasim Sulton is on board, too! Ya can't go wrong with that.

Good grief, why are you here? This isn't interesting. Move it along. There's nothing to see here. Except a woman who wants to kitchen dance in her slippers and is forced to den dance. This isn't gonna be pretty. Carpet, you know. Take my word for it - raise your hand to the level of your eyes and save yourself.

Update: 14 minutes later and all is right with the world. Meat Loaf is cooking at regular speed. All it took was unplugging from the wall and a few un-ladylike words. Just call me techno-geek.

Bat out of Hell III?

I am sorry. You have lost all credibility. Turn in your...well...it seems like you ought to turn in SOMETHING...

Mr. Fab - you flatter me so. I actually had credibility before? Oh wait, this comes from a man who sprays himself in the face with silly string......

KP said...

Can I just say how impressed I am with your technical ability? You could work at Best Buy fixing all the MP3 problems of the world. Oh & I noticed you used different color font in part of your post. What's next? Links??

KP said...

Mr Fab... she made me go to a Barry Manilow concert with her once. What do you think of THAT?

CruiserMel said...

KP!!!!!! You've spoiled the surprise of my next blog entry with that Manilow remark. Happy now?

CruiserMel said...

Oh, and by the way, Bat III was #8 on the Billboard album list when it was released last month. Now, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only buying the cd.

So - y'all suck. Hard.

Blakken said...

Ok, Bat of Hell (1, 2 and now 3) are great rock-n-roll cds. Bat out of Hell is just one of those that have all the elements. Then 2 does that same thing, but doesn't rehash. And now 3, god, it's just sweet ear candy! Back all you ones that think it's other!

Swishy said...

LOL. I have to admit, I always sing along (loudly) with "I Would Do Anything for Love ..." whenever I hear it.

CruiserMel said...

Well, well, well.....so there actually are others out there who have Meat Loaf on their "guilty pleasures" list. Heh.

Blakken - like the ear candy line. It truly is.

Starlet said...

I think its safe to put "ipod expert" on your credentials at this point.

CruiserMel said...

Starlet - IPod Expert? Maybe so, but this morning I couldn't figure out how to turn off my alarm clock. Go figure.

cruiserfriend said...

I LOVE Bat Out of Hell!!! Many GREAT memories. I bet there are a lot more out there that just are too "cool" to admit it.

Dezdmona said...

Ooooh! I can't wait till my DH gets one of these things!

He is an absolute techno-idiot...can't figure out the key-lock on his cell phone, so just doesn't use it. *rolls eyes*

Don't worry CruiserMel..you would be a techno-geek in our world.

Blakken said...

Ear candy is a great line; however, I cannot claim it. I read it on a website or heard it from the Howard Stern Show or the like. But all things I like are ear candy :). Another CD that doesn't make a list is Stryper. They came out with a CD in 05 called Reborn. It's awesome.
