so, Sunday I went wandering around town with ox_number_10 and tobin for a bit. We hit various places, and I managed to make myself look (and, to a certain degree, feel) "really old".

First was the music run at Dimple. I picked up some used CDs. Devo, Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, and Garbage. At which point Tobin started with the relentless comments about various other "old people" artists I might be interested in. I tried claiming that Garbage isn't old music, but Ox and Tobin wouldn't hear it.

So, we went on in our wandering over to the Virgin store, wherein Ox and I inquired about the possibility they might have the atari joystick-game-system that's available now, as I'm curious in it (and, upon further reading, I find I *really* want one!). Problem is, that place is staffed by 18 yr olds. So there we were, desperately trying to describe this thing to her by using referances to the original Atari 2600 when it dawned on me, and I told Ox, "She's too young". We eventually get to the right part of the store by asking her to show us where the video game consoles would be, and we find the activision version of what we're looking for. The sales girl at this point realizes what we were trying to describe and says (referring to the atari) "Oh! Isn't that, like, really old?"

Yes. Yes it is. Thank you.

"Really old".

Feh.

Hey, I think relentless is way too srong a word. ;) Plus, Ox was harrassing you quite more than I was, thank you very much.

On the bright side, you DID win the card game by an honor victory. :P

heh.. Oh, don't get me wrong, I didn't mind the relentless (it's a perfect word) jabs. It was clearly in good fun and I was getting a laugh out of it as well.

And yes, I did win. Just barely. I got dealt shite focus vaules and you almost had all the rings out. It was getting close. I think your deck can be a serious force with just a bit more tweaking.

That's true, but you still got the win.

I hope I can make this Monk deck into something decent. I really want to try out the new cards I put in yesterday.

Old people music? BAH. Garbage is NOT old people music.

That's what I'm claiming. Ox was firmly of the opinion that Garbage still counts as "Adult Contemporary" (or something to that effect, I can't remember the exact wording how he put it).

For the record, I did state that Garbage was still considered cool in my book. :P

Course, I'm older than you. Hehe.

Tool and A Perfect Circle are both very talented groups, I'll agree. Wumpscut I've only heard a little bit of. I've liked some of what I've heard, but haven't taken the time to listen to much of them yet.

You like Frank Zappa and King Crimson as well? I love you. :) It is suprising how few (younger) people these days have heard *of* King Crimson, much less actually listened to their music. And while most people have heard of Frank Zappa, they haven't likely listened to more than one song. I must, unfortunately, admit that they are two of the artists/groups who fall into the category of "I love their stuff, but I don't have much of it". Like Tori Amos, U2, David Bryne, Brian Eno, and far too many others.

i could probably hook you up with some frank zappa stuff if you were interested... heh
And yeah, it's hard to find younger people who will actually listen to his music.
