Remember Lloyd Dobler? “I’m the distraction that’s going with her to England” Lloyd Dobler? “I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen” Lloyd Dobler? If you’re of a certain age, it’s likely you were in love with him, or the idea of him. And you wanted a Lloyd Dobler to hold up a boom box and play you a song outside of your window because he was in love with you. Thanks to a nice little hack, Lloyd Dobler will play you a song! Anything on YouTube. Go ahead – put something in. You know, Rhianna’s S and M, Brittney’s Till The World Ends. Anything by Ke$ha. Or, how about this great monologue by Julia Sweeney on MPR’s Wits?
