Fucking-a... if ever there was proof that geek culture is the new chic, there it is. Hopefully it'll be up on their website soon for all the world to see. http://www.whas11.com/
It works out quite allright that the feature comes out the week Avengers hits and takes over the world.
I can't wait to see this story on you weirdos.
I think I had to be the weirdest of the lot. I would've been disappointed otherwise.
Fuck cell phones. The only reason I have one is because my employer pays for it. And I use it mainly as an oversized iPod.
see, I always hear that. "I wouldn't have one if not for my job/wife/kids/whatever." Screw that. Avoid complication.
ROCKO, it's people like you that are pefect to be thrust out into the spotlight. Face it... you're fucking COOL
. There's already the stereotype of skinny or fat, ugly, socially maladjusted, near sighted nerds being into comics. The world needs to see that ( while there's actually nothing wrong with looking like that
) not every comic guy is a total dork. Christ, we're businessmen, computer programmers, cops, lawyers, teachers... it's time for the stereotype to die.
You are the perfect
Well, thanks, my friend. It's good to know that for a great many people, this will be the first they know of my interests. This isn't about cellphones to me. It's about coming out to the world: I'm like this. I'm into this. I am this guy.
“When I tell people I don’t own a cellphone, they look at me like I was hatched from an egg,” said Jeremy Rocko.
Um, you mean you weren't?
I don't really know how they got "Jeremy Rocko," but I'll take it. I'm also not exactly a "movie producer." Caught some shit from my friends for that.
That was amazing. I honestly salute you Rocko and may end up joining you. I have a cell, but only use it for calls. I'd like a droid simply for a few apps that I think would come in handy (and reduce the amount of shit I carry in my pack), but I'd like to hope that I will never let the phone take over my life.
unfortunately, I'm an internet addict, so I don't know how that will work out.
See, and I love the internet. I've been on it since I was 15. I just don't need to take it around with me in my pocket.
Whey hey! Love it Rocko!!!
And I agree, if you are out eating and the phone is on the table or in hand, is bad form...
Out of interest due to the clip, is not illegal for you guys to drive and chat without a hands free???
I think here in Louisville it's still legal. I certainly see people doing it a lot.
No problem. It was fun to see. You look so happy when you said "I hope not".
And that's my thing too. I love tech. My phone is less for talking on than the billion other things I use it for from password protection software to notes for what needs done for the week, a calender that syncs with my phone, computer, and wife, and most importantly instant access to anything I ever want to know.
But I understand resistance by people who are just not interested. Nothing wrong with that. Weirdos.
One of the things Doug (who is Louisville's main anchorman, I've been watching him since I was 7) and I talked about was that I'm not mad about anything or obstinate or something. It's just this thing that's happened over the last 10 years that was just never interesting to me. At no point did I say "That looks great! I need that!" I just figure I will talk to you when I talk to you.
Rocko is a great ambassador.
Well, since I'm sharing the truth about who I am, I might as well go all the way.
Actually, I'm not. But wouldn't that be crazy if I just came out like that?
I'm so pulling that wallet trick!
Go for it. I would love it if that caught on.
There's 2 major ways my life might change:
1) There's no way ever again I can deny that I collect toys, and a bunch of people just saw that on Louisville's #1 news station. Neighbors, customers, people that knew me growing up, whatever.
2) No one is likely to come up to me while on a cellphone or answer that shit while we're hanging out without feeling pretty fucking awkward.
