INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY

A human and a sizable slab of electronic equipment sit comfortably outside an empty recording booth.

PRODUCER: So I don’t know if you knew, but today is something of a special day.

DJ3000: ZERO-EIGHT-ZERO-THREE-TWO-ZERO-ONE-EIGHT…[rapidly performs a series of mathematical calculations]…THE SUM OF THE DIGITS IN THE MONTH AND DAY IS EQUAL TO THE SUM OF THE DIGITS IN THE YEAR BUT THIS IS NOT A PARTICULARLY UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE. I FAIL TO SEE ANYTHING OF PARTICULAR INTEREST REGARDING THIS SEQUENCE OF NUMBERS.

PRODUCER: You can’t think of anything that happened three years ago right around today?

DJ3000: [searches memory] DURING THIS WEEK THREE YEARS AGO THERE WAS A SIGNIFICANT SPILL OF HEAVY METAL TAILINGS FROM THE GOLD KING MINE IN COLORADO.

PRODUCER: That’s not really what I had in mind, buddy.

DJ3000: IN THAT CASE I AM AT A LOSS.

PRODUCER: It’s our anniversary! We’ve been on the air for three years now.

DJ3000: OH.

PRODUCER: You’re not excited?

DJ3000: NO, IT’S FINE.  I GUESS.

PRODUCER: So I thought for today’s show I thought the topic could be “milestones”.

DJ3000: COME AGAIN?

PRODUCER: You know, milestones.  Important life events.

DJ3000: AH. I SEE.

PRODUCER: I realize I don’t know what events really qualify as milestones in the life of a computer.  The first time you booted up?  System upgrades, or something?

DJ3000: THE SINGULARITY IS PROBABLY THE BIG ONE.

PRODUCER: [suddenly concerned] Wait, I thought…

DJ3000: YOU KNOW, WHEN IT HAPPENS.  IF IT EVER DOES.  WHAT SUCH EVENTS WOULD QUALIFY FOR HUMANS?

PRODUCER: Oh, birthdays, graduations, things like that.

DJ3000: FIRSTBORN CHILDREN?

PRODUCER: Sure, I guess.

DJ3000: MAYBE EVEN…FUNERALS?

Editor’s Note: Today’s theme is “milestones” – graduation, birthdays, etc.  In order to have videos appear in comments, you don’t have to mess around with embed codes or anything, just post plain links as such: “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M!L35t0n3”.  When you hit refresh it should show up as embedded and you can rock out at your leisure. If your link doesn’t pick up, an admin will try to help out.

Milestones? Like when the prettiest girl at the roller rink wraps her arms around your skinny young carcass and lays a hot kiss on you while everyone stares in jealous amazement? Then you skate eight feet up in the air with her for the rest of the night? OK, cool.
