i dunno about that. Nothing kills nostalgia like a reboot these days.
My wife and I watched the new Beavis and Butthead and it was pretty funny in a really corny way. Reminded you of being a teenager. Picard was awesome, even if the 3rd season was a bit... interestingly written. There are reboots and then there are reboots. I'm excited to see what they do with King of the Hill. :grin:
 


Neither a millenial nor a gen-Xer, but a Xennial. We grew up around a lot of friendly (& some not so friendly) Gen-X folks in the late 80's/ early 90's, and we experienced both analog and digital technology. For example I learned electronic music production on a reel to reel setup, transitioning into ADAT tapes, and all the way through into digital with Pro Tools.

Waitaminnut... according to the pub beginners guide "going by the original definition of the term as established by Douglas Coupland" I guess I am Gen-X, just on the end cusp. I never thought of it that way but I guess it makes sense.

Course I know none of the posters here would be familiar with these...


Actually not familiar with the logos but I doubt I would have remembered the logo even if I'd watched a film.

My most memorable porn related event was meeting a guy at a party who put together the slip covers for those VHS boxes. He said they put the covers together and advertised the video before they ever even shot the film from old stock footage. If it sold enough on preorder then they made the film. I can recall if they refunded or just game a credit for films ordered but not made.

I thought that was brilliant. They had Kickstarter before the internet. The customers just didn't know it.

Oh yeah that's an old exploitation trick. Roger Corman would often start with a title and poster and then hire someone to make the movie. Those 'someones' included Scorsese, Coppola, Kaplan, Dante and many other future greats.

Speaking as someone born in 1983, Xennial is for cowards anyway :tongue:
 
I could here him calling in the air last night...
“Susudio”, “One More Night”, “Don’t Lose My Number”, “Take Me Home”, “Invisible Touch”, “Throwing It All Away”, “In Too Deep”, “Tonight Tonight Tonight”…On and on and on…

Yup, all the way to the bank.
 
1-800 lines. Recently watching some late night TV I was surprised to find ads indicating that the 'date lines' still exist and so must still be making money.



 
Well, we're three years away, how close are those predictions looking?

burger price is spot on, if a little conservative - most real restaurants it's around $20 for burger, fries and a drink. More for gourmet.

i dunno about car prices these days.

$12k sounds about right for a nice international vacation
 
The burger and fries price is the most accurate, at least for a table service restaurant (fast food/fast casual are less, around here, anyway).

The car price is only really true for a luxury car or something on the high end of average with a lot of add-ons. You can still get something new for a whole lot less. As for the vacation, those vary significantly in price, but that would be a really expensive one IMO, not a typical one.
 
I was gonna say with cara you can buy used and save half that but I dunno if that's still true.

Not really, these days -- used prices have crept up a fair bit. Still less than new, but not like it once was.
