Show your mp3 pride on national iPod day
October 22, 2009 Bill Crotty
October 23 marks national iPod day - don't let it slip by un-celebrated. Not every electronic device can appeal equally to hipsters, jocks and your 9-year-old sister.
Do a little party planning in honor of what is arguably one of the greatest advancements of our time. Host an iPod dance party at your place.
Dim the lights, hand out the glow sticks and throw on the tunes. Suggest that guests come prepared with their iPod of choice, fully-loaded with dance-worthy play lists. An excellent playlist could even include all of the songs that have ever appeared in an iPod commercial, including The Ting Tings "Shutup and let me go" and Feist's "1 2 3 4."
Party decorations for this fun soiree could be music posters from your favorite artists. Party fare could include plenty of apple snacks, like apple pie and candy apples. Bonus points if you use Macintosh apples.
If you really love your iPod, it could even make a great Halloween costume. Find a big cardboard box, spray-paint it silver and cut out a hole for your eyes. On the front, draw an old-school iPod wheel, and have one of your favorite songs playing. Consider wiring your real iPod and a speaker to the inside of the costume with some duct tape.
