When the call came, I had flashbacks to the days when we rented videos. Please return the dog. Odd irony. And for the record, she (the dog) is hopeless at finding her toys when it’s time to travel.
The day isn’t over, but the highlight may have been trying to get ahead of the city bus so son #3 could embark. Somehow, I find his efforts to interpret transit schedules (and leave sufficient time to get to the stop) currently rate a FAIL. Just my impression.
Almost by accident, I tuned in the movie Scott Pilgrim vs The World before it had progressed past the opening moments, and then I watched it until the credits were done. A great diversion. Imagine a video game mixed with Guitar Hero but giving Michael Cera another opportunity to work his underdog magic. This kid may be one of the better talents to come out of Canada this century. Can’t wait to see what he does next. And using Toronto as the setting… comic genius.
An interesting graphic on one of the CBC websites, showing the change in how music is “delivered” since I started caring. Vinyl was the way, until the CD dethroned it. Less shelf space needed in our living space (and the lack of available milk cartons behind local markets). And then, before the business world knew what had happened, the MP3 took over in our lives. Say what you will, the whole idea of having your music always available in your shirt pocket has an appeal that can’t be beat. We won’t be returning to LPs in my lifetime.
