Uncool. Mom. Uncool.

I. AM. OLD.

I knew this. I knew that for 43 I'm an old fuddy-duddy. But I didn't know to what extent I am ...

UNHIP

UNCOOL

ANCIENT

NERDY

OLD

I love Pandora Radio. Don't you? I have all kinds of fun channels on the Pandora app on my phone. Journey. Steven Curtis Chapman. Christmas. Newsboys. Bluegrass. Weird Al.

Y'all know I adore Weird Al. It's really the only Pandora station I listen to. I was listening to it yesterday and it struck me that if the songs weren't Weird Al's, or some other strange humor, they were all '80's music.

ALL. EIGHTIES. MUSIC.

And I really only love Weird Al anymore when it comes to music. I think it's fun. And hip. And cool.

It's not. It's old. Nerdy. Ancient. Unhip. Uncool.

And I'm very sad now.

Go away.

Let me be old and weird and nerdy in peace. While I watch my favorite video:



Is it better or worse that I like the green screen version best?

Until I write again ...

What's wrong with 80's music?

Leenie said...

Yeah, nothin' wrong with the 80's music. At least it's better than whatever happened in the 70's (okay except for Queen). But you want old and weird you gotta go to the sixties. Beatles, Stones, The Who, The Doors, Beach Boys. Now that is some kinda classic strange.

Love Weird Al, and I especially enjoy Donny Osmond helping out with the White and Nerdy. You just keep on, keepin' on, Flea!

Oh Flea you are not old. Old is me....try the 60's and 70's stuff. I LOVE Weird Al. His lyrics can make me laugh every time.

You crack me up. Old is anybody older than you. I'm like Noe Noe--not just one foot both feet, maybe half buried.
One of the kids asked me if I was around for Elvis. I said I was a kid but watched his movies. I do remember the debut of the Beetles on the Ed Sullivan show.

At least you know the lingo baby!

There are worse things, my friend.

Have you considered letting Pandora find you things that are LIKE the things that you, uh, like? Also, if'n you feel like branching out, let me recommend The Current, a station out of Minneapolis that people aroudn the WORLD access. Seriously.

Go here: http://minnesota.publicradio.org/radio/services/the_current/playlist/playlist.php

In the middle of the screen, near the top and in red, click on "Listen to the Stream". Real eclectic mix of old/new/hip/nerdy. :-) You know. Right up your alley.

Wait. Are you saying that 80's music isn't cool??

And I had to giggle.....

Weird Al's White and Nerdy used to be the ringtone that Coach had for the Teenager. :)
