We all got the doldrums during the holidays. Our bouts of eating, shopping, and boozing were separated by Herculean couch trips, mammoth TV-watching sessions where the chafing of fabric-on-fabric wore holes in our jeans, and we watched random bits of Are We There Yet? interspersed with Hannah Montana, Hockey Night in Canada, and that MythBusters marathon on Discovery Channel.
Records were listened to, too, and old LPs were pulled out of stacks in parents’ basements. (John Travolta doing “Razzamatazz” wasn’t as awesome as I remembered. I don’t even remember why I thought it was awesome.)
But now we’re back, with 12 more months to look forward to. And in the latest edition of Smoke Break, live from inside the Detroit People Mover, Brian Smith and I are looking forward to recouping the trash-culture royalty fees we deserve.
I'm looking at you, Elliot Yamin! I may get your name wrong in Smoke Break, but it still sucks that I was even close.
