Listmania

I feel like writing lists tonight. Sometimes I start them in my head, and the "Actors I Particularly Love" got started while I was falling asleep last night.

Alan Rickman
Jimmy Stewart
Kevin Corrigan
Jake Gyllenhaal
Kevin Kline
John Hannah
River Phoenix
Kenneth Branagh
Kevin Spacey
Chris Cooper
Timothy Olyphant
William H. Macy
Naveen Andrews


Actresses I Particularly Love (in no particular order)
Audrey Hepburn
Grace Kelly
Helena Bonham Carter
Cate Blanchett
Franka Potente
Kristin Scott Thomas
Julia Stiles


Dead Technology (and Such) That I Remember Fondly, Thereby Showing My Age
  • the Atari 2600 video game console (on which we played primarily Pong and Frogger)
  • 8 Track tapes (which I only remember from when I was very young)
  • "laser disc" players
  • record players (now called "turntables" and apparently used primarily by DJs)
  • VCR tapes
  • audio cassette tapes (and the clunky tape players with the big rectangular buttons)
  • floppy disks (the big, black, square, actually floppy-ish ones)
  • correction fluid
  • rotary dial phones
  • the Nintendo Gameboy (on which I only ever played Tetris)
  • the Sony Walkman (in fact, I still often refer to my CD player as "my Walkman" without noticing until someone looks at me funny)
  • Usenet newsgroups like alt.swedish.chef.bork.bork.bork

I'll never forget the time I wanted to buy Rivka a Sony portable tape recorder, so she could tell her stories and sing the songs she makes up.

I went on Ebay to find one, and I had to look under VINTAGE electronics!

Dear lord, I feel so old.
