As they do every year around this time, the fine folks at Beloit College in Wisconsin have released their list of things that incoming freshmen are too young to know or have experienced. For example, Lou Gehrig is just a guy who had a disease named after him because Cal Ripkin Jr. had 'always' held the record for the most consecutive games played in the Major Leagues. They've always had blue M&M's, but never tan ones, and Eddie Murphy is best known as the voice of 'Donkey'... not as a stand- up comedian. So maybe you're thinking, 'wow, they're so young', but keep in mind, they're probably thinking, 'Christ, you're really old'. Ever text a teenager? They don't use words. It's insane. Anyway, this leads to today's question: HOW ARE YOU 'OLD SCHOOL'?
Keeps a paper daily planner... seems like everyone uses their cell phone for reminders and stuff. Guess I could do that too, but I keep forgetting
People tell him he talks 'old school'
Drives an old muscle car... it's a stick shift
Still has a P.O. box... unlike most people who have a P.O. box, he has one just because he wants to
Still plays his old NES game console
Owns a landline phone and doesn't own a laptop
Uses an actual calculator... I do too! Wait... what's that? Oh, the calculator is on his WATCH? OK, yea, I don't do THAT.
Doesn't own a cell phone... you're not missing anything, my man.
Still listens to 8- tracks. Owns 278 of them, but not all of them are so awesome
Uses a film camera... sadly, I own a film camera and digital camera... and I end up taking pictures with my Goddamn phone. Go figure
He doesn't Facebook... neither do I and I have no interest. I also don't tweet, in spite of everyone encouraging me to do so. I have nothing against Twitter (no particular interest, but nothing against it) but the reason I don't tweet is simply because I blab for 4 hours everyday. Everything I have to say I have the opportunity to say via a radio station. I think that's plenty.
