Earbuds are out. Headphones are hot.
A PERMIT IS REQUIRED
TO BE AS COOL AS KEVIN
But really, all the hip kids here in Portland wear bigass headphones instead of earbuds. Earbuds are such a mark of the bourgeoisie.
Okay, okay, so I lost the little foam cover for one of my earbuds and my earholes are so big that it won't stay in without it. That's why I dug out these cheapass Koss headphones. They do get you a lot more attention, though. And you know what? They sound just the eensiest bit better too.
BE BRAVE. EMBRACE THE HEADPHONES. THROW OFF THE SHACKLES OF EARBUDISM.
Now if only I could find some cool sunglasses.
