Certainly for me, and perhaps for many of you, there’s something eerily familiar about the scene that plays out in this animation. Here’s the backstory: Starting when he was 12, Mike Cohen, a kid growing up in Buffalo, began recording the arguments he had with his parents (unbeknownst to them). At least one of the tapes, recorded in 1985, recently ended up in the hands of Rodd Perry, a first time animator, who created the cartoon above. By the looks of things, Brother Mike is still part of the music scene today.

thanks for sharing – enjoyed that! especially liked the posters on the walls as I had several of the same ones on mine, think I still have them actually!
Great pairing of voice and animation! I graduated from high school in ’84 and my bedroom
looked pretty much the same.
