Modern gadgetry is making mincemeat of the old game "which eight records would you take with you if you were marooned on a desert island?" When some students enjoying a "semester at sea" recently faced that possibility,
Students shared their iPods ("I was surprised at how many people grabbed their iPods" while getting their lifejackets, [University of St. Thomas student] Riordan said), played endless games of cards and talked.The Warrior Monk scored an iPod for Christmas and has been hard at work ripping his vast CD collection. He has some logical (to him) reason for starting with the Christmas music. So, if shipwrecked right now, he'll be listening to lots of ho ho ho'ing as he turns lobster red in the tropical sun. Want to rethink that archiving plan now O Monk Brain?
