Drinkman: The Walkman Shaped Hip-Flask

Drinkman Walkman Hip Flask
Drink in The Nostalgia

Hey Oldsters, who out there remembers way back when recorded music was first made “portable” through SONY’s invention of the Walkman cassette player? Let me repeat that: Walkman. Cassette. Player. Who knows what any of those words even mean, right? It was so long ago, and you probably weren’t even born yet.

But despite its relegation to the status of antique music listening device, the Walkman’s impressive girth has advantages over micro-thin iPod thingies in that, if you were to transform its shape into a container for alcohol, it would hold enough to get you sloshed.

RIP Steve Jobs

Oh man, what a blow. Steve Jobs has passed away today, October 5, 2011, due to an as yet unspecified causes (read: Cancer), though he was known to be in poor health (Jobs struggled with pancreatic cancer for over a decade and underwent a liver transplant in 2009). He was 56 years old — way too young to go. Steve can at least rest in peace knowing he created the best personal computer in the universe.  The Worley Gig was created on an iMac and the Mac is the only brand of computer I will ever own. Apple Mac Forever! You can read the LA Times Obit on Steve Jobs at This Link.

Lyrics of the Day: “Sleep That Burns” by Be Bop Deluxe

No matter how I shuffle the iPod, this is the song that comes on as I’m waiting for the PATH Train at Newport Pavonia every weekday morning. And what a great song it is.

A brass band is playing
Rehearsing its thrills
All half-moon and cloudy,
All golden and shrill

I’ve got a sleep that burns
A sleep that burns
Got a sleep that burns all night

I’m locked in your dark world
Where hearts hold the keys,
Half-opened, enchanted, half-truth and half dreams…
