You know you are old when

You are watching a Styx concert on PBS, and the lead singer of Styx (Dennis DeYoung) not only is hobbling around the stage, but is dressed like a priest, has snow white hair, and needs a 60 piece orchestra to distract viewers from his weak, old voice.

To add insult to injury, after his "concert" PBS hits us up for a donation. Would you pay for that? They should pay me.

He is now singing "Mr. Roboto", and doing the movements for it. He must be robotic. He is moving around like he has had major joint replacement.

Thus ends my report of Deb's exciting Wednesday night in Debland. Do I think I'm being mean? Possibly.

***P.S.*** For any of my readers that think I'm saying that they're old, I'm not. First of all, I am well aware of my old-ness, and secondly, I haven't seen any of you dancing robotically on a stage. If I did, well, then, I might accuse you of old-ness.

That's so funny. We must be getting old, but at least we realize it and we're not as old as Dennis DeYoung!

Oh God Deb. It's incredible how much I relate to the elderly now. It's like as soon as I hit 40 I suddenly looked at old people and thought to myself, "I know your pain, literally."

I can't freakin' stand that guy! And that song?! OMG--I remember the video on Mtv & it used to make me want to punch somebody! I would've thought they'd drop that one from the set list these days--C-H-E-E-S-Y!

Haha. I am totally old. A SF radio station did a special feature the other night with some of the guys from Cheap Trick talking about the recording of their Live from Budakon album. And they sounded like a bunch of old farts!

Peter Frampton bald?? God, that hurts.
