My dad worked in Ballard. I used to see the carnage that was old folks walking the streets of Ballard in spring as all the concrete has popped up creating tripping hazards. It was like someone went to war on the elderly.Oh, I remember!
Cops in Ballard was my favorite. My dad grew up in Ballard.
The Millennials were born in the '80s and '90s, and take their namesake from their generation coming of adulthood at the turn of the millienium - I guess they would nominate anything after the year 2000 as being 'their era'.The above post got me thinking...at what point did film/television/music become Millenial?
What was the Last Gen X sitcom, genre show, film or album?
Pithy answer - when it started sucking ;)
but more seriously, for music, I would think it would be defined by when the mass of the generation is 18-21, where much of your musical taste gets defined. Thus, definition of the individual members represents definition of the generation.
I’m not certain that millennials had that, though. I’m not sure they had “music that defined a generation”. There are big acts, for sure, but it’s hard to lump them all together. You can see a serious shift in the late 90s, however. Britney hit the scene in 1999. Madonna, Shania Twain, and Elton John all had hits in 1998. There are more.
But really, in the US, the end would be defined by the end of Grunge and Ska (visualize raleel spitting on ska). Down on the Upside from Soundgarden is fairly pop focused compared to previous efforts, and that was 1996. AIC unplugged was the same year, and their self titled was late the year before. It’s gotta be in that space.
after that I don’t think it was exclusively Gen X anymore, but might not be fully millennial. 10 years after this, Taylor hit the scene and it was definitely full millennial then.
I would worry more about people who didn't find her hot. That was kinda the point.
Grew up with two trees in my backyard. An avocado tree and a nasty apricot tree. Don't get me wrong, I like apricots, they're just nasty on the ground to clean up. I digress though, I grew up putting avocado on toast. Hehe, and still do weekly when I can get them.The only person I've ever seen actually eat avocado on toast is my 77-year-old godmother.
,It's clear to me that Jetstream had no right to be polluting this thread with his Millennial hipster nonsense!
I demand the mods do something so I can feel validated!!
The next thing you know this thread will be full of stuff from the 2010s and people calling us boomers!!!
My favorite memory of Sons of Anarchy was seeing an in-game advertisement for it while playing Anarchy Online.Sagal of course was one of the best things on the very uneven Sons of Anarchy. It was really her and her strong fellow cast members (Perlman, Callie, Mark Boone Junior and Kim Coates in particular) who kept that show watchable for me. One of the worse season finales ever though.
