Marc Maron, Podcast Legend, Tackles the Internet in 1995 HBO Special

Marc Maron, in 1995:

So I go to my friend’s house. So yeah, I’ve got to get on the net. He’s like, ’You got to get on the net. You got to get on, man. This is the future, man.’ This guy spends eight hours a day playing video games with a guy in France. And I go, ‘What are you, an asshole?” And he goes, ‘No, man, the computer’s a tool. And I’m like, ‘No, the computer’s a toy! You’re a tool!

I love Marc Maron—but I’ve got to be fair and point this one out. I wonder what he thinks about this bit now that WTF, his internet-only podcast, has been downloaded over 100,000,000 times.
