So when I was a wee kid, you know, before the Internet, we used to go on the car trips...usually like 4-5 hours...doesn't seem bad now but then, to a kid w lots of energy, that was like a day and a half.
So I had saved up and bought a tape recorder - yeah, that long ago. I used it to tape TV shows to listen to in the back of the Grand Safari while I read my comic books. I don't remember all I taped but I remember two shows - Battlestar Galactica and Mork and Mindy. I loved those shows. Still a little sad that I missed the window on those suspenders. I remember when Jonathan Winters came on as their kid. Genius.
I had "Reality...What a Concept" and almost wore that album out. Good Morning Vietnam was amazing, Dead Poets Society is a flat-out all-time favorite - powerful and laced with painful irony now - Good Will Hunting - just no words for that performance. I don't have any great lessons here...I'm just remembering and missing someone who has been making me laugh my whole life.
I'm gonna miss that guy.
