So i was talking to my boy this morning and we were discussing music and what we grew up with, I was telling him how in Kindergarten we did a perfomrance to the yellow submarine song by the beatles.... now this song if you dont know it is all bout being on drugs... yes I can see how it could be translated too a childrens song.. but...

WTF HELLO??? this is what my generation grew up doing... we also grew up with shows like The Goodies, Astro Boy, Eagle Riders (battle of the planets), Muppet show, Sooty.. SO TOTALLY UN PC shows its not funny!... and really if you look closeley at all the stuff us Generation Xers grew up with it explains why we are a messed up lot! Geek truly started to be cool in our generation.. Star Wars figurines were the first of their kind. I remember my brothers room being full of them.. that had never occured before us.. Oh they had lunch boxes, T-shirts etc but collectable figurines were started really with Star Wars.... NOT just toys anymore they were representations of what was awesome!

SO in a lot of ways... anyone who came after us who is into comics, anime, anything Geek and can be not bullied or beated up cause really its all kinda a lot more cool than it used to be

HAS US TO THANK!

so all hail Generation X we are a messed up lot but hey YOU GOTTA LOVE THE ORIGINAL GEEKS!

Feel free to disagree with me, but im a gen xer so i wont care :-P
