Vintage Electronics and Tech in Sony's The Wackness

Original NES, Pagers, MixTapes? So Not The Wackness

Yo, if you consider yourself any kind of Vintage Geek fan, then get thee to a theater to see The Wackness.

Needless to say, I agree with Buzz's glowing review of the movie, but sitting in the theater, what was I cooing over more? The proliferation of mix tapes (I told you they were mad hot), the declaration of being loyal to cassettes, the boomboxes and — wait for it — blowing into a Nintendo game.

Young entrepreneur Luke Shapiro also rocks, oh yes, a pager, and constant headphones. Even though the movie takes place a mere fourteen years ago, it's the tech stuff that really gives the movie its nostalgic sheen. Basically, it's the dopiness.

Haha, love the tech flashback! The gadgets are pretty much vintage compaired to what we have now. I cannot wait to see this film. Unfortunately I won't be at the theater for it however the minute I can rent it I will watch the film.
