Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

FLAVOR OF THE DAY:

Digging the '80s vibe.

One-man band Robert DeLong — his live shows are a riot — is from Bothell, WA, which is a suburb very near where I spent many of my formative years in the Seattle metropolitan area.  In fact, during one summer, I volunteered at the Bothell Senior Center, teaching computers to old people.  This was back in the days of Prodigy email accounts.  Prodigy Internet has since been swallowed up by SBC, then AT&T.  Ancient history.  The area itself has changed quite a bit, too, with the growth of UW Bothell and Cascadia college.  Very different character now than 20 years ago.

(By volunteer, I mean I played copious amounts of computer games.  Using a computer and reading email wasn't exactly an in-demand activity at the senior center, as one might imagine.)
