Cardboard Sarcophagus

I fried my iPod the other day.

It's a long complicated story involving unsavory elements that are bad and scary and will not be mentioned here. I spent an entire morning at work trying to heal it. John Bjerk came over and even with all his powers could not return to life my lifeless pod. With nothing left to do, I packed it up and mailed it back to Apple in a cardboard sarcophagus. See below.




HOWEVER, glad day, I just received word from Apple....

She's in Gaffney presently, near to that gigantic obscene peach and will be in sometime this afternoon/evening.

I think my next post or so will be a "currently listening to" post, so that being said look for "the glove compartment" song.

Hey even better, better news, iPod-wise. Look for a new post tomorrow.

Dear cORy,

I think your dead iPod is a hoax.

The dimensions of your iPod sarcophagus
rough sketch do not match the I.A.D.i.S.S. criteria
for dimensions that the I.A.D.i.S.S.
demands.

Furthermore there is no Don Otreply that works for Apple.
