I'm the oldest 28 year old ever. I've always appreciated things that were well before my time.

I'm sort of the same way. My wife and I love Big Band music. For a long time that's all we listened to. Probably would still now but we weren't smart enough to back all our music. Computers and hard drives die over time. I know differently now.

That's a scary thought. I back up all my photos online and an external hard rive. Sadly, music which varies from punk to bluegrass is all just on the hard drive and iPhone.

Peice of now, obvious hind sight. Back up anything you value important on one of those online sites. I used an external hardrive. Thought because I use it rarely it would last forever. Then one day I turned it on and heard nothing but a sick clicking sound. Took it to work and asked a friend if he could recover the data (He is very adept with computers) His off hand comment.. "sure, if I had access to CIA forensic equipment."

Man!

I hear ya on appreciating the old stuff Dan. I’m still keepin my beer in the icebox and percolating my coffee.

I’m a *huge* fan of Big Band music too. Went so far as to put on a Big Band Concert a couple years ago with a 17 piece band from the Detroit area.

One of my absolutely favorite recorded Big Band pieces is from the movie "Sun Valley Serenade" ... this is “Kalamazoo” by the Glenn Miller band.

btw: check out none other than The Great One - a very young Jackie Gleason, killin it on the upright base.

Definitely worth Fullscreen and turning up the volume ...

I'm thinking Dan does not have a 20 oz Mt Dew bottle with pen body and 3/4" socket pipe in his collection.

I grew up around pipes and tobacco and still enjoy my pipes. Nothing better than sitting outside with a good pipe, good tobacco and good sipping single malt scotch.

I'm glad I never got started with tobacco.

But, I like the smell of pipes. The smell of cigars is acceptable for the most part. And the smell of cigarettes is disgusting!

And while I’m on this little swing fest ... here’s another piece from Sun Valley Serenade ... Chattanooga Choo Choo

Seriously swingin hard. Turn this up and fullscreen too. It don't get no cooler than this ...

btw that guy at the beginning and elsewhere is a very young Milton Berle (I know, I know ... I say that like everyone knows who the hell I’m talking about ... just humor me ;-)

Yep you're correct there Zuljin. A career with mandatory testing has a tendency to discourages that kind of smoking.

Great post Jacob. My wife and my favorite is probably from the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Moonlight Serenade. I suppose it’s time to start rebuilding my collection of that music.

On a different subject. I miss the Block Buster and other large video rental places. They always had a decent collection of old movies. Now with RedBox and BlockBuster kiosks the selection is very limited.
