Someone should show these people how an iPod shuffel works!!

You know if your an inventor, you want to invent something thats useful, never been done before, creative, intelligent.

I suggest someone show Bolivians how an iShuffle works!
I find it hard to believe how anybody (to the point of laughter) can listen to the same song all fuckin day. Oh god is there no end to this madness. I heard about the US army playing playing certain artists to prisoners in Guantanamo bay (i spelled it right the first time!!)

Check out the Metallica comment!!!!!!

The proponents of torture by music doubtless think they have come a long way since the early 1990s, when the FBI blasted loud music at the Branch Davidians during the Waco siege in Texas. The repertoire then included Sing-Along With Mitch Miller Christmas carols, an Andy Williams album and These Boots Are Made for Walking by Nancy Sinatra.

However unpleasant it may be to have such tunes blasted at your compound, bringing the music into an enclosed interrogation cell was a quantum leap in psyops. Nonetheless, in the strange lexicon of 21st-century America, the US military calls this "torture lite". Torture is apparently OK if it is not too "heavy".

Metallica's Enter Sandman has been played at cacophonous levels for hours on end in Guantánamo Bay and at a detention centre on the Iraqi-Syrian border. One Iraqi prisoner said it was done at "an unidentified location called 'the disco'".

Unfortunately, some artists are not offended by their work being used to torture. "If the Iraqis aren't used to freedom, then I'm glad to be part of their exposure," James Hetfield, co-founder of Metallica, has said. As for his music being torture, he laughed: "We've been punishing our parents, our wives, our loved ones with this music for ever. Why should the Iraqis be any different?" Such posturing may go with the territory for an artist of the Metallica genre, so there is no need to speculate about whether Hetfield is being naive or wilfully ignorant. But no sane person voluntarily plays a single tune at earsplitting volume, over and over, 24 hours a day, and expects to stay sane.

They do it here too, so much that every song sounds the same (this is why i think they throw in a bit of Iron Maiden to their Disco mixes. It´s funny how Gringos are very fineky about their music, here, they can listen to the same song all day.

Songs that are western are covered by locals, so the locals think it´s their song and culture.

I heard the best recording studio in La Paz has the best drum machine you can buy, but they dont know how to use it. I´m thinking did it come with instructions? Can anyone read?

But is this a quality to be admired, to be able to listen to the same song all day, after all in G. Bay, this is how people are tortured, are Bolivians super humnans or are they Dum Dums in the old music department?

I´ll take the music in Argentina any day.
