What's On Jesus' iPod? / Protest anthems, Zeppelin, gospel, classical and, of course, Nine Inch Nails. And, yes, Jesus does P2P

This is a very cool and very funny article about what Jesus would have on his iPod ("You know he has one") and why. On a cool side note, about the "60's Protest Songs" it mentions, I have every one of them it mentions on MY iPod. It's a pretty long article, but worth the read. Here's part of it, click the above link to read all of it.

"The iPod and Jesus -- it just makes sense.

After all, Jesus was a rebel. Jesus was the Original Liberal. Jesus was a devoted pacifist and a badass egalitarian and his best friends were all whores and dissidents and freethinkers and miscreants, artists of every shape and size and haircut and of course, were he walking around today, Jesus would be pretty much loathed and ostracized if not outright hacked to bits by the Christian Right. 'Goddamn hippie liberal tree hugger,' they'd sneer, waving scythes and Bibles. 'What the hell?' Jesus would say.

All of which places Jesus in direct line of the iPod's marketing demographic and all of which naturally raises the question, well, so just what does the great mystic and healer and closet Buddhist and funky savior of humanity have on his holy iPod?"
