Wow…that a trip; and I don’t mean that in a good way. It took me the better part of three weeks to get the music “set up” on my phone and finding an appropiate player. But why so long? Do I have that much music? I’ll go over all of that.
This is going to be a continually updated list of music/media players I’ve tried for Android, along with my successes, failures, and opinions of the application. My only main requirement that I cannot flex on is that it must support Ogg Opus. It is, for this reason, many of you may find your favorite “best media player ever” got a pretty negative review.

It’s time to face the music…my iPod has to be retired. Though they’ve served me well for 13 years, it’s time to bite the bullet and change, once again, how I listen to music. In fact, it’s been close to 20 years since my serious musical journey started. So I’m going to take this time to reflect upon all my previous methods, why my I made my iPods last so long, and what’s next.
So I was in the grocery store last night and saw yet another version of Mt Dew on the shelf. I decided to give it a try.
Now I’ve been drinking this stuff for much longer than I should admit to, though during my impressionable youth I suppose I got hooked in to the branding. I’ve cut way back on my soda cosumption as I got older and sometimes I don’t reach for a Dew anymore, but it still holds a place as an old standby.
I remember when Code Red came out. I was disappointed. It didn’t taste like Mountain Dew and more like carbonated Hawaiian Punch. Livewire was a surprising change and Baja Blast was the flavored Dew I’d been expecting since 2002. I found that despite brand influence, I’d come to get used to and prefer the original flavor. Even when throwback came out…it took a while to realize it just wasn’t the HFCS version I’d come to love…which is interesting because I love the real sugar Pepsi.So I get this Ice not knowing what to expect.
Its a Sprite/7-Up clone. A typical lemon lime soda. It has a very limey aftertaste, more than Sprite. Almost seemed to be more tart. But it’s obviously not Mountain Dew. The biggest thing is it has caffeine whereas most Lemon/Lime sodas don’t.
I can underatand variations of a soda…but this is entirely different. It tastes like Mt Dew is trying to become its own brand entirely.
Now if only get Pepsi 1893(or is it 1892) in a 12 pack for the price if regular Pepsi.
When Windows 10 came out, I really didn’t want to like it. In fact, my mission was to hate it. From the telemetry to Cortana and the way it seemed Microsoft was trending towards the Apple ideology of “we say so”, I absolutely did not want to use it, let alone like it. But you know something, I like it.
I hacked together a little column for Foobar2000
Which is why it’s been on for 25 solid days.
