This last Wednesday I was on my way from CA to NC and I had a 3 hour layover in Nashville, TN whose airport is the worst I've ever seen. After about 2 hours of being there people started hopping in line to board so I joined them.

The entire flight home I had my iPod going and to be honest I heard nothing but the sounds of music being pumped into my head.

While I was in line a certain song about a bot came on. Just then a people started getting off a plane and the terminal filled with people almost instantly. People, whom all of which seemed to be moving to my beat, were everywhere. Walking, Standing, Talking, Or otherwise animated but all powered by my one beat. Turning my head in amusement (or to try and snap out of this allusion) I realize 2 ~10yo girls and 2 young boys just a little older dancing about the gate area with no real rhythm or steps or any guides or directions whatsoever. Completely defying all order and structure within the airport, they moved and flailed their limbs about in perfect harmony to my beat. It was contagious. I couldn't help but to catch myself caught up in the rhythm, wanting to move, but realizing my surrounding's I maintained myself. Though, I wanted to dance.

Then an older girl, who seemed to be with the same group as they younger ones broke away from the line with a phone attached to her ear. She moved with such grace. Dancing around a pillar, spinning in the open, it all seemed too good.

This couldn't be real, I thought. I must be delusional so I removed my headphones only to see that the people continued to move, without my music.

It was as if I were the spectator to a live Mac commercial.

I was in awe the rest of the time I stood in line and couldn't help but to chuckle to myself.

Needless to say, I love my new iPod.

Jace, you really should lay off the hallucinogenics while you're still enlisted. [Razz]

Sounds to me like you're Addicted to bass

<sings>Standing by the stereo I'm feeling so alone
My back against a speaker and I'm moving on my own
Surrounded by so many and they're staring at my face
They're picking up my problem

I'm totally addicted to bass...

...Sunrise at my window, I look down on the street
People I see everywhere are tapping their feet
Suddenly I realise in a look that I was wrong
Everybody's groovin' to their own song

Down at the scene below
There's something in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below

Rhythm's running over me to wash away my fears
The backbeat of humanity it sweetens my tears
There's something that's connected us down throughout the years
No need to feel so lonely, everyone's addicted to bass...
</sings>

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

It was described so well I could actually see the people dancing.

The hallucigenic affect is spreading!

I haven't forgotten
and I won't forget
I just haven't gotten
around to it yet

Whatever has happened to the Cosmic Bong?

TFD: That song is awesome! It's songs like that one that I wish I could play for the world and just run about in a dancing spree.

Stevenback7: Too much.

Snaggy: I've begun accessorizing my iPod. It's almost as fun as listening to it.
