I Sure Would

Watch either The Brady Bunch or Gilligan's Island or both just about every day of my childhood, that is. So I have to mention the death of both shows' creator, Mr. Sherwood Schwartz. Know what's weird? When we'd watch The Bunch in, say, 1987, we thought of it as completely antiquated, from another era. But it had only ended less than 13 years earlier. So that's the equivalent of watching a show from 1998 today. Granted, nobody was texting or posting video online in '98, but, come on, it's the same shit as now.

And Gilligan--that show was in black & white at first. Ancient! But again, it was only 20 years old in '87. Twenty years ago now? '91! The electric 80s were over, we were already in the future by then. Except for the shitty cell phones and computer stuff that's really not visible when looking at pictures of people and places anyway.

Don't know what my point is. Just something to think about I guess.

apologies for the lame nature of this comment, but the title makes me think of this quality hiphop track.

not sure how much you dig hiphop but worth a listen to...
Like most people when talking about almost anything, I "only like the older stuff."

But after hearing that song, I'm realizing I don't even know what defines hip hop any more. I'm falling further behind than I thought...
Also, thanks, because that song vaguely reminded me of Tha Crossroads, and now I'm pumpin' that.

(pumpin = playing through almost non-existent MacBook "speakers")
