The muse is not amused and lets our intrepid writer/blogger know it. She grabs his laptop, closes it, picks it up and slaps him upside the head with it. Satisfied at a job well done, she pushes him off the chair, sets it back up and blows a short sharp whistle. A few seconds later, a tall muscular hottie walks on, delivers a fist bump and sits down in the chair.
Hi there! If you remember watching this with great frequency, then you are what we call "A Geezer".
The modern definition of a geezer is someone who remembers when the world didn't quite revolve around the Internet, a personal computer was a major monstrosity that used a cassette to load programs and 5 1/4 inch floppy discs, and videotape ruled the world (VHS that is).
The owner of this blog qualifies as a geezer, 'cause when he was a teenager, the following statements were true.
1} He knew life when gas all had lead, and you could fill your tank on $15.
2} Music came in 8-track, vinyl and cassette.
3} Laser discs were an epic fail.
4} Beta was an epic fail.
5} Music that you now hear on the various oldies formats was actually fresh and current back then.
6} Boy bands were still in diapers.
7} T.V. was NBC, CBS, ABC and PBS.
8} The networks actually used to spend a week promoing new cartoons for the season.
9} And Steve Martin was God.
Anyways, my job here is finished. All there is left for me to do is ask you a question and all that you're required to do is answer in the most interesting way possible.
"Is there anything that you remember and enjoyed while growing up that now either gets you vacant looks from your kids when you mention it, or depresses the crap out of you when you find out it's still being produced/performed?"
