I know that feeling. My younger brother has a solid career job and I'm in between work with no real skills, aside from being really, really good at Super Smash Bros.

The world needs Super Smash Bros. experts just as much as doctors, engineers, and scientists. It's fact.

Exactly. I'm going to Smashfest with a few friends Saturday. Representing Pikachu.

Yesterday was my youngest son's actual birthday, so we did what he wanted to do, which was stay home and goof off mostly.

In the evening, I finally opened the gift my wife had purchased me for Father's Day...



An Audio Technica belt drive record player. I had wanted a record player for quite some time, but just never got around to actually ordering one. I got it all together and connected to my surround sound system, but by the time this was completed, everyone but me and my youngest son had gone to sleep. I slipped out my He-Man and Gremlins records that have sat dormant and unused for almost 30 years.



I showed my now four year old boy how you place the record on the table and which button started the fun. He took the instruction well, and in seconds... I began to hear the exact sounds I hadn't heard since my preteens. It was a surreal moment full of nostalgic delight.

Here I was, some three decades on with my life, finally hearing these voices and sounds... and with my birthday boy. Everything played well, for the most part. A few skips here and there, but it didn't matter. We sat listening to the stories and turning the pages on cue. He loved it, and so did I. I'll never forget it.
