Say Everything

I often find myself marveling at the amazing technology that's at my finger tips on a daily basis. I'll be sitting there - watching TV while chatting with a buddy halfway across the world, reading Mueller's blog while simultaneously working on a comic. All from one magical little machine.

It's mind boggling. And of course it's only becoming more incredible as time moves on. Back in the day, I remember sitting at my IBM 8086, turning on the ol' 1440 external modem, dialing up and listening to what sounded like a family of cats dying in order to connect to my local BBS. Now it's possible to do about a thousand times more than that on your way to work.

And as awesome as all of this is, there are moments when I yearn for a simpler time without all the advanced tech. I think things would be a little less complicated for your day to day life. At the very least it would be easier to plan grand romantic gestures without the possibility of complete and total disaster.

I feel like there's another reference I'm not getting here. I'm guessing there's some important movie I missed.

I kinda assumed everybody had at least seen a reference to this scene from Say Anything, but I should have known that Ross was far too manly to have ever heard of it.

Ask Maggie, I'm sure she's seen it.

Ross is a n00b. John Cusack 80s movies ftw. And it was made by Cameron Crow for god sakes. Ross Fails at the Internets.

Ross failing the internet or not, Trish is hot. I think random internet babes is just what this blog needs.

Ross said...

I fail at the internet for not knowing an 80s Cusack movie?

B Vasquez said...

DO NOT QUESTION ME! I love you Ross.

totally agree with your blog. we've come so far yet gotten so little out of it perhaps. like in the movie contact, has the advancement of science really helped the soul of mankind? or is it just a distraction? hold on, my blackberry is buzzing...

can you imagine if john cusak had tried to hold up a cd player from the mid 90's above his head. it wouldve sounded like an in your eyes remix.
thats what makes tapes so awesome.
