I had to pick up another pair of earbuds for the ipod today; the ones I’ve been using have suffered from an internal decapitation that causes the right speaker to cut out every so often. It’s not constant, but the wire leading out of the right side is bent over at the end of the apparently too-stiff strain relief; move that wire too far and it disconnects.
I picked up a replacement set of $12 Skullcandy “INK’D: Smokin’ Buds” at
Radio Shack The Source.
Apparently $12 is too cheap for them to care which is the right one and which is the left one. I need a track that has an obvious left / right so that I can conduct an experiment and label the results correctly. Seriously, I don’t want to accidentally listen to backwards music; that’s how the devil speaks to you through the rock music…
I pride my record collection, it’s the only thing I like to do
But, my dad insists they’re evil things
with satanic messages in their grooves
He says he knows this for a fact cause the lord told him so
And he doesn’t want the voice of Satan
raging through his humble home.
Those records are the devil’s music
And no son of mine’s gonna listen to them
Sorry son, but you have no choice
I just can’t have you hearing that devil’s voice
