Yeah, I know this dropped a few months ago, and over nine million people have seen it. But, Jesus, I still can’t get over it!

The first time I held a Walkman in my hand, I was eight years old — and I knew exactly what to do with that bitch! I wasn’t all “What is this foreign technology?” I popped open the cassette door, listened to Thriller and went about my gotdamn day!

This is messed-up to watch because you would think SOMEONE would’ve told these kids about Walkmans by now. But I guess people are afraid to admit how old they’ve gotten and don’t want to talk about Walkmans the same way their grandparents talked about phonographs. I’m fairly certain no middle-aged adult wants to start off a conversation with “Back in my day … ” This is especially true for those whose “back in the day” wasn’t that long ago. I know this last time I had a Walkman, this happened.

So, have you told your kids about old-school technology, or are you afraid to admit you’ve officially become an old-ass person?

I interviewed Jon Reep for the Indy this week. It’s the latest comedy article I’ve done for the paper that you can’t find in the table of contents, for some reason.

I will forever be indebted to Raleigh couple Tom Mekus and Shonna Greenwell for doing something for me when I was at a low-point in my life — my most desperate, my most despondent, my most utterly hopeless: They made me those “houseburgers” Eddie Murphy talked about in his 1987 stand-up concert movie Eddie Murphy Raw.

Over at the Indy, I talk about comics flocking over to rock clubs. I also wrote three calendar blurbs which you cannot find online. (What a shocker!)

Over at the N & O, I wrote about a local guy who loves Sorcerer (whose soundtrack I already talked about here). I’ve already gotten two emails from people asking me why I didn’t mention that it’s a retelling of The Wages of Fear. I did in an earlier draft, but my editor cut it out, citing that it “seemed unnecessary.”

Oh, and I also interviewed a member of Naughty Professor on Friday.

In case you’ve been wondering, I still review movies, mostly (and barely) for the Scene.

This time of year leaves me in such a funk when it comes to movies that I can hardly muster up the strength to post my own reviews. Well, this week, I dropped my take on Transformers 4 and I let Begin Again slide. I also reviewed How to Train Your Dragon 2, like, a month ago and I eeked out a quickie review of Supermensch a couple of weeks back.
