I was watching Daria last night on Mtv, and one of the characters had commented "It's hard to believe someone born in the 80s could have such a 50s opinion." It then dawned on me, there are kids entering college now that were only born in the eighties. 13-15, picked up one of our masks and were commenting on how cool it was and that they thought it looked familiar.Kids who aren't old enough to remember when records were the majority of albums sold in music stores, kids not old enough to remember the death of disco (ok, so that's a FORTUNATE thing). I said to them "Yeah, its like the mask on the cover of Quiet Riot's Metal Health album. Telling a junior at work I didn't like the new cover version of Bananarama's hit "Cruel Summer," and her saying to me that she didn't know it was a cover!!!In the video shop the other day I noticed that the DVD section was getting bigger.

buying records, using the oven to heat food because microwaves were not around yet.....seeing latest movies at the Drive Inn (Dusk to Dawn's were great) At my first job they has mobile phones as big as bricks with a black box attached with a cord which was carried around....machines as big as a large photocopiers you had to dial the number and "yell" at the person at the other end to "I want to send a fax" (calling for OZ to Japan was the pits! In Communications class, my friends (all almost 19), and I (just turned 19), where talking about 1980s commercials that we were gonna use on our project.
The scary part was, all the commercials aired in 1986, and for some reason, we knew them all.
I wonder will VHS outshine another competitor or will people in 10 years time be kicking themselves when they get the CDs, CD roms and DVD disks all mixed up - as they all look the same? We brought over "The Breakfast Club", thinking they would enjoy-after going nuts over "She's All That" Not only did they NOT relate to any of the movies emotional angst, but they were quite bored with it and make jokes about the way Molly Ringwald dressed. I realized the noise they were making was laughter when they talked about how old the band was.
While I was working in a car wash, I overheard a mother talking to her son about car/cell phones. Needless to say, it made this 31 year old feel ancient.
None of the HS kids knew what we were talking about!!! When I realized what she was watching I exclaimed, "That was my favorite show when I was little!!
" My cousin looked at me in horror and said that Tv land only ran classic old shows and that if I saw the orginal episodes I must be really old.There I was buying a Superman DVD pack, 25 years old and this 17 or 18 year old kid treated me like a 50 year old man buy a Beatles CD. This was the first time I ever felt seriously old, I've been feeling bad ever since.Realizing that later in this new '00 decade I will turn 30 and a 10 high school year reunion isn't that far away has me &%^*#$%% bricks too.So I said, "Yeah dude, they're really cool especially the first one, got a directors commentary and everything, you should check it out".The guy put his little scanning gizmo down on the counter hard, looked up to the ceiling and rolled his eyes, then continued to scan with a laugh and said, "Uhhhh, well Superman is a bit before my time, it was some kind of '80s thing.The only Superman I know is that Lois & Clark series.
