My first experience with a Walkman is forever burned into my memory. My mom and I went to some local mixed-media store that has since gone out of business, and I begged her to shell out the dollars so I could listen to my Spice Girls in isolated bliss. My player of choice was bright red and had a Mickey-head shaped window to view the magical spinning of those cassette wheels. I put on my headphones, pressed the massive plastic play button, and yelled to my mom "WOW ... Read More

YouTube can be a major time-waster, or a super productive educator. Typically the difference in how you use it depends on what time of the day/night you're browsing, how many glasses of wine you may or may not have had, and how stressful your day has been.
