A few thinks come to mind:
1. Its hard to believe, but we put a man on the moon and I saw it on tv
2. While this is not my life, I did watch the Untouchables on tv

3. I did watch This is Your Life

PostSubject: Music   Tue Jul 16, 2013 6:40 pm

Tonight we were having a discussion about the difference between the earlier music of bands such as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Rush and other such bands with what they were producing later in the 80's with the hopes of continued commercial success in the era of pop music. Most of the young men at the table didn't know the difference, and a few didn't even know most of the bands we were discussing. Granted, the conversion turned heavily towards Prog Rock and bands like ELO, Angel, Asia and ELP that are not such common names now. But this made me feel old.

When one asked "Who is Adam Ant" as he was being introduced on the Jimmy Kimmel show tonight I died just a little on the inside...

Little story. First, I'm not THAT old. However, I think this story fits well.

I was in teacher's college, teaching a chemistry class to grade 10s (15 to 16 yrs old in Canada). I decided to use a clip from the movie The Matrix to illustrate the value of chemistry. I played it in class, and no one reacted. "WTF?" I thought. Such a poignant movie. Why was no one reacting?

Because they were 2 when it came out. I was 17. You're now 28 ish, and they are 16 ish. You're an idiot. A very old idiot.

Their comments reflected it. "What is The Matrix?" "It's some old movie about how everyone's trapped in a computer program."

You've got to be kidding me.

Seeing Adam Ant the actor makes me feel old... (I still have that vinyl LP!)

Non-thematic Rush albums made me feel old... (first concert - Farewell to Kings...)

I'm in the chain restaurant business (30 years). Seeing children of the teens who once worked for me makes me feel quite old....

But, at 52, I'm not ready to cash out just yet!

Birthdays. I used to enjoy them. Now I'd just like to move on without any sort of fanfare.

When I go to the doctor and complain about a new problem, and the doctor just looks and me and says "It's normal for someone your age to be experiencing that." and then proceeds on with the appointment with no intention for any resolution.

When I realized I was eligible for senior discounts. Haven't used any yet, 'cause I can't get used to the idea.

Carding someone to sell them a drink, seeing 1992 and realizing they are old enough.

I can remember back to a time when I took out a young lady (I was considerably older) and discovered that I had taught her mother in high school.  THAT made me feel old...and a little foolish.

when I make creaking and groaning noiseS when I sit, stand or lie down. When my arthritis kicks in. When my youngest daughter is talking about how she is the most responsible person at her job, and being looked at for management. When they play music from high school on the oldies station. But most of all its when I find myself thinking "kids these days"

Getting out of bed in the morning and having the pain hit full force. Gets the attention AND makes me feel ancient at 62. Of course, five heart attacks didn't help anything Smile

I won't pull the "I'm thirty and that's old" card here, but Amazon now lists the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam as Classic Rock. That hurts a little.

When I turned 40 it was supposed to be "over the hill". Never felt any different.

When I turned 50 it was supposed to be "all downhill from here". Never felt any different.

When I turned 60 I started getting the senior discount at the local barbershop. That was a little strange since I didn't consider myself a senior yet. Still didn't feel any different than at 50 or 40.

Age is just a number. Stay young my friends.

I'm no fool, no sirree
I'm gonna live to be a hundred and three
I play safe for you and me
'cause I'm no fool!
