That's fair-- it's how I feel about her Jawaiian favorites and some of the other crap she enjoys.

So I sent her this 100 Riffs link more out of sentiment (it's been a while since we've held an AP Classic Rock lesson) and she loves it. She says it's the first time she's been able to see it all at once and to appreciate the guitar work! Now she's passing it around with her classmates... thanks for posting it!

That looks like a Motorola phone, circa 1990. See photo of a "brick phone" below.



That was actually an advanced phone, because the first Motorola portable cellular phone was a "bag phone", as they could not pack the electronics into a hand-held unit. People would carry the bag with a shoulder strap, like they carry their laptop now. This was circa late 1980s.

My first sell phone was a bag phone like this in 1989. $250 to buy, $25 a month, plus 25 cent a minute use charge. Current phone from Virgin, Free phone, $5 a month, 18 cents a minute. Ah, progress.

Maybe too serious for this thread, but I think some of you will enjoy it anyways. Sorry if it has been posted previously somewhere in this lengthy thread.
