We TiVO 120 Minutes on VH-1 Classic.
(1. Shut up. You’re not cool either. You know you have embarrassing season passes on your DVR too and 2) VH1 Classic, ugh. I’m so old.)
The first couple episodes of 120 Minutes we watched were all about Morrissey and Siouxsie & the Banshees and a lot of mid to late 80’s alternative music but lately they have been much more early 90’s stuff.
I was folding laundry and the kids were playing on the floor (Usually I let them watch kids shows if we have the TV on but if I am folding laundry I often insist on watching a “music show” which is usually some crap I recorded off of VH1 or MTV2 just so that I can pretend I still listen to music on occasion.) and the video for “Ruby Soho” came on.
“Hey guys!” I said. “You know this song don’t you?”
We have been known to listen to a lot of Rancid around thse parts.
“Yeah!” All of the sudden Ian was really excited. “I know that guy! I know who he is!”
“Which one?” I asked. “The guy with the mohawk?”
“Yeah! I know him!”
I was so proud. My son new Tim Armstrong by site.
“Mommy! He’s the guy from Guitar Hero!”
Oh. I see.
And nobody tell Tim Armstrong about this. I don’t think he would find this amusing.
