Alex Nepa is a jack of all trades! He is a DJ, producer, editor, guru, friend and mentor as well as GM of @LocalMotion and 1/2 of CVRBND. Nepa is also a ‘lover of fine beers’ and self-proclaims on his e-mail signature that he is ‘sexy’. However wonderful all of these things achievements sound, we are not interviewing this DJ about any of this. This is a story about something all of us dread, this is the tale of Nepa’s iPod falling in the toilet. Below is the exclusive interview about the horror Nepa endured and what he did to right the wrong. Enjoy!
Was it a gift?
Purchased for myself. Only two months old.
Was it engraved?
Do you normally work out to music?
I always work out to music. I live my life to music.
What songs are on your workout playlist?
Various DJ mixes from guys like myself, Joe Maz, DJ Sprite, DJ Grooves and DJ Spinbad… and maybe one or two Girl Talk mixes, but I won’t admit to that publicly… wait…
How did you feel when your iPod fell into the toilet… at the YMCA?
Was it clean or dirty water?
There’s no such thing as “clean” toilet water.
Yuck. Did it splash?
Why did you Tweet about it?
I thought my followers and friends would find it amusing!
We obviously did. Were you embarrassed about tweeting about it?
Did you really flush it down the toilet instead of trying to save it?
Yes. Goodbye iPod.
If you knew you could have saved it, would you have tried to fish it out?
Not a chance.
Are you going to replace it? What model?
Replaced it with the same model.
What advice would you give to others reading this that someday might have their iPod fall in the toilet?
Flush it. You can buy a new iPod, you don’t want to die of dysentery.
Any final thoughts?
Put your iPod in a locker before using the bathroom at a gym!
