I realized the other day that my references must be very dated, yet again solidifying that I am not only old, but also obsolete. I had mentioned Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor to a girl that is only a few years younger than me. She had no clue. I then tried to pull out the Green Acres connection, still nothing.
The other day somebody asked me what I wanted to do with my life, to which I replied, who are you Niedermeyer in the We’re Not Gonna Take It video? Yup, nothing like thirty year old music videos to really capture the moment.
I suppose I should come up with some more current sources of comparison, but how? Television, music and movies all stink now. I blame the state of the current cultural arts on my inability to site anything from this millennium.
