" 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.
In the video shop the other day I noticed that the DVD section was getting bigger.
The scary part was, all the commercials aired in 1986, and for some reason, we knew them all.
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.
The son was amazed to learn that people didn't always have car phones, and that they used to have cords. I was network administrator at a university, and asked out one of the girls at the college to a Chicago concert. I feel old when I talk to the 20 somethings at work about......
Being 25, I grew up with the Christopher Reeve movies, and I used to work at this Best Buy only about 4 years earlier when I was 21, which to me wasn't that long ago.
When the kid at the counter saw what I was buying he said "Suuuuperman" in a saracatic way.
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!!!
So here's a list of things that make me feel fairly old even though I'm only 25 years old. Too bad we don't have a red leather straight jacket too." The kids looked at each other then back to me, then one of them, totally straight "Quiet who? Same goes for that song which samples the Dream Academy's "Life in a Northern Town." (sigh)While being the "guardian" while their mother was on her honeymoon, I was driving around in 1994 with my cousins (born in 19) when "Don't Stand So Close To Me" came on the radio. Several big name bands that I listened to in highschool are making their comeback tour together and are playing at a local club with an occupancy of under 400.

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.
This reminded me of when I was a child and the video shop had Beta videos "Upstairs" and the "VHS" cassestes downstairs. I was in a christian book store when a couple of teenagers who were looking at some CD's made a slight noise when they came upon the Stryper CD.
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.
I mentioned, during the lull before the concert, something about REO Speedwagon. I thought that the guy in the seat next to us was going to have a heart attack . the days before videos and I used to take photos of fav bands off the tv....... They had floppy disks the size of LP records..............mmmmm I feel OLD!
