Marc Maron prefers his Walkmans without listeners attached. (1:22)

Audience:YEAH!

THAT'S WHY I ASKED THEMTO PUT THESE BANNERS UP.

THIS WAS BACK WHEN SHOW BUSINESSHAD INTEGRITY, PEOPLE.

LOOK AT THOSE FREAKS.

NO ONE WOULD PAYTO SEE THEM ANYMORE

'CAUSE YOU CAN JUST GOTO HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD

AND WALK DOWN THERE.

IT'S LIKE,"HEY, THERE'S THE FAT LADY

AND THE BEARDED LADY.

( chuckles )

YEAH, I WASON HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD

FOR A WHILE TODAY.

I SAW THE GORILLA, TOO.

I LOVE HOLLYWOOD.

I LIKE CALIFORNIA.

IT'S WEIRD HERE THOUGH.

THERE'S THIS WHOLE NEO-BEATNIK,RETRO-BOHEMIAN COFFEE-SHOP THING

GOING ON IN THIS CITY.

I SWEAR TO GOD

YOU WALK INTO SOME COFFEE SHOPSIN THIS CITY

YOU FEEL LIKE AN EXPATRIATEIN PARIS IN THE '20s.

YOU'RE LIKE, "HEY, ISN'T THAT

"A YOUNG ERNEST HEMINGWAYOVER THERE?

"GEE, I THINK IT IS.

LET'S GO LOOK AND SEEWHAT HE'S WRITING."

IT'S A GAP APPLICATION.

GEE, I'M PROUD TO BEPART OF A GENERATION

WHERE READING IS A LOOK.

UM, I LIVE IN NEW YORK CITYAND I HAD TO MOVE RECENTLY

BECAUSE WHERE I LIVE,PEOPLE STEAL EVERYTHING.

THEY STEAL THINGSOUT OF YOUR CAR

OUT OF YOUR APARTMENT,OFF YOUR BODY

THEN TURN AROUNDAND SELL IT RIGHT ON THE STREET.

THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENEDTO ME ONCE:

A GUY COMES UP BESIDE ME

HE'S RUNNING.

HE'S LIKE, "HEY, YOU WANTTO BUY THIS WALKMAN?

SEVEN BUCKS."

THERE WAS A GUYBEHIND HIM GOING

"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?"

( laughter )

I SAID, "HOW MUCHWITHOUT THE LISTENER?

"IS THERE A PRICE ON THAT?

OR HAS THAT GUY GOT TO COME HOMEWITH ME, TOO?"
