Louie Louie Louie

Yesterday, my good friend Carolyn Casey reminded me to start taping the Louie CK show on FX. If you haven't seen it, you don't know what you're missing. Louie is funny. Louie is dark. Really dark. He can make pedophilia seem funny. And he's a father of two daughters, like myself. That's no small feat.

Here's a sample of Louie in one of his lighter moments with Conan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8r1CZTLk-Gk

Louie reminds us of the amazing times we live in. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the arena of technology.

Take these twenty albums that were collecting dust in my garage, for example. I don't listen to them anymore. Not because the music is no good (it's ten times better than today's offerings). But I don't have a turntable anymore. And even if I did, there's a good bet my daughters would have busted it by now.

Now check out this tiny iPod, it's the latest generation of the shuffle.

It's one inch by one square, weighs .44 of an ounce and can store more than 300 songs approximately all the music on the 20 albums pictured above.

I'm not shilling for Apple -- my friends at TBWA do a fine job of doing that. I'm just saying that's pretty amazing. And to Louie's point, I'm awfully happy about that.

Note: after opening up all these albums that haven't been touched in 20 years, I was able to find enough pot in the crevices to fill a one hit bowl. What's the expiration date on dope?

I'll gladly take that vinyl off your hands. Got a rockin' old school stereo system set up, complete with turntable.
