  • In an interesting turn of events that accentuates your headshaking, your username is almost “walkman.”
  • I was talking to a colleague a while back about various alternative bands we were into in our younger days. I happen to mention that I got into The Cure thanks to John Peel back in 1978. Another colleague piped up ... "I wasn't even born then!" That's when it hit me that it was over 25 years ago!

    The Mission did a cover of Dream On some years ago, and I was horrified to discover friends didn't even know it was by Aerosmith. Their Run DMC collaboration caused confusion too. I had a similar experience when H

  • My wife had a similar experience. She was on a family trip in Scandinavia when all of a sudden, Take the Long Way Home or something comes on the radio. Lisa was in the car with her step-sister (~10 years her junior), who didn't recognize it. The kid had never heard of Supertramp, Breakfast in America, or any of the songs on that album. Funny.

    That's what vocal cords sound like before you massively abuse them.
