Goodbye Goodbye compiled a list of previously vital items gone obsolete during this decade. Pay phones, VCRs, fax machines, dictionaries, encyclopedias, yellow pages, classified ads, CDs, floppy discs, bills in the mail, paper, records stores, landline phones, movie rental stores, camera film, dial-up modems, and palm pilots have been dodo-birded by the technological advances of the past ten years. I’ve personally deep-sixed TV, radio, and hard liquor, although hard alcohol was abandoned at the request of my psychic healer as opposed to the utter uselessness of the previous two. Pundits have no been predicting the demise of newspapers without taking into consideration that you can’t swap at a fly with a TV or a computer.

I’ve been obsolete since 1995.

And obsolete always beats out extinct.

Just ask Martin Cooper, inventor fo the mobile phone.

I only wish plastic bags, SUVs, and High-Fructose Corn Syrup were slotted for the ashheap of history along with MacMansions and fast food.
