At the movies


#6965

I think I am more excited for this than my students.


#6966

You were young?


#6967

Also, any sci movie list without Gattaca on it is not worth anyone’s time IMO


#6968

Before the Kardashians were a thing, yes.


#6969

Efa


#6970

During Glasnost, before 9/11.
Suck it.


#6971

There is a whole generation of people about to leave high school and enter the work force that were born after 9/11, that blows my mind.


#6972

What’s glasnost? Is it an old person reference of some sort, like sixpence or some such thing


#6973

We had a work experience kid in our office. Born 2002. How can that actually be a thing


#6974

Is @SMJ even that young?

Aren’t you my age?


#6975

End of the Cold War.
Before global warming was a thing.
It was a time when the biggest thing we had to worry about was…
Geez, let me see…
INXS biggest band in the world.
Cricket world champions.
Recent back to back flags.
Yahoo Serious was an international success.

Sorry, I’ve really got nothing here.


#6976

I’m your age I think, but I’m still allowed to make fun of people who are 137, right?


#6977

And if you want things that will blow your mind, one of my children will have to say that Donald Trump was president when she was born. How messed up is that


#6978

Anyway: movies:


#6979

If I’ve learnt anything over the last few months, its that if your not yet 40 your a young millennial, if your older than 40 your an old boomer.


#6980

I suppose.

But I reckon it’s more fun hanging it on the kids of today, with their loud music, and Dan Fogelberg, zima, hula hoops, and their pac man video games.


#6981

And their bisexuality? I mean pick a side already geeeesh


#6982

Please tell me you didn’t just miss my Baseketball reference?


#6983

I watched the first one in 1978. I thought it was boring rubbish then and have never watched any of the others. It’s just a straight old-fashioned goodies v baddies movie, but the swords are called light sabres. And they fly around in speceships instead of riding horses or driving cars.


#6984

No one can tell him he’s wrong
