As has been pointed out MANY times here, the odds of Twinkies and Ding Dongs vanishing from existence are unlikely. Walmart, Kroger and a couple other companies are already looking at acquiring the brand.

Technically it's 33 things, tfa author kind of didn't notice the recent news that Hostess is getting close to selling off the snack cake line to other companies.

Past that, nothing in that list made me feel old until I ran across the SNES tidbit.

That made me sad.

As a 56 year old cross between Brad Pitt and Leo DeCaprio, I don't feel old.
When my 48 year old rock star neighbor and pal tries to hit on a 23 year old waitress and she rebuffs him, I don't feel old. When I go back for lunch the next day and she remembers me as the guy with no cell phone glued to his ear in a self important posture and didn't stare at her tits, and comes on to me, and I miss the pass, I feel old.

They were real, and they were fantastic.

Going in for lunch tomorrow, alone.
Fer chrissakes, she's 23, but adorable and has no idea how much I'm worth, so she's got that going for her.

Crap. I've got stubs from Elton John when he was "experimenting" with women.

I saw the tour in Tampa, but all the tickets back then looked like this.

[i.ebayimg.com image 548x171]

$11.50 for a ticket? Fark me! I paid almost $75 to go to a show back in October.


Crap. I bought three tickets to Elton john and rented a tux. So did my best buddy.
We each took two 13 year old girls and rented a cheap limo for the show.
Front row center.
/Got upstaged my the one other dude in High School who was called in to be EJ's piano tuner for the event and was onstage before the show and called out to us sitting there.

//Got called up to front row center and asked if I wanted a front row center in trade for my GA ticket for Jethro Tull or. curtain #1, be onstage with him and play a rubber fish.

???
/// took the seat, because he was playing a mandolin that night and that. is. My instrument.


Went to the after party with my pal's pass and didn't get home until noon the next day.
If I could figure out how to dial a Russian phone #, I'd have gotten laid.

Oh, the ticket prices were ridiculously low.  I remember passing on some shows because tickets were $17.  I saw the Rolling Stones (Tattoo You tour), with opening acts Van Halen and Journey for about $35.  Pat Benatar on her first album tour was $4.98.

It's a combination of having my ass kicked playing football in high school (apparently I wasn't very good) and a series of motorcycle accidents. I'm 38 but sound 65 when I'm moving around.

Why the obstructed view stamp?


Most of the concerts in the Tampa area were all general admission seating, so I never had that stamp, but in some venues with reserved seating, there may be a beam or support partially blocking the view of the stage.  These were often given away as freebies (radio station, promoter) or sold to squeeze every penny out of a gig.

Something like this would get you a stamp:

Hey!  Me too!  My dad arranged our entire vacation around the moon shot.  Saw the liftoff in Florida, took the travel trailer out west.  He made sure we were in a city that had good TV reception (Dallas) for the moon walk, and we were in Houston's Mission Control for splash-down.

Funny thing to me is how different the Saturn V rocket sounded compared to the Space Shuttle.  On TV I didn't notice much difference.

When my 48 year old rock star neighbor and pal tries to hit on a 23 year old waitress and she rebuffs him, I don't feel old. When I go back for lunch the next day and she remembers me as the guy with no cell phone glued to his ear in a self important posture and didn't stare at her tits, and comes on to me, and I miss the pass, I feel old.

They were real, and they were fantastic.

Going in for lunch tomorrow, alone.

We drove out to Merritt Island from Winter Park with a full U Haul (we were in the process of moving back to Atlanta), found a spot in the mall parking lot. The thunder was A LOT louder there than home.

Ended up watching the moon walk in a hotel room in Doraville.

And, yeah, there is quite a difference between the two vehicles. I guess it is because the Saturn was some much bigger than the Shuttle.

I have two secrets to feeling young:
First, I was born in a year ending with "0", which means it's easier to do arithmetic than it is to remember how hold I am. And since I hate doing arithmetic, I can't generally remember how old I am.

Second... wait. I forgot. Oh! I don't have a lawn. This is my secret to immortality. If I have no lawn, I will never tell kids to get off it. Hence, I can never be old.

First, I was born in a year ending with "0", which means it's easier to do arithmetic than it is to remember how hold I am. And since I hate doing arithmetic, I can't generally remember how old I am.


Heh. I often do the same thing. Born in '69 and I always takes me a second to do the math in my head when someone asks me.

Strangely, I took 25 as the worst of all. It didn't even make sense at the time, but I really did feel dreadful about it.

It's nitpicking, but I'm pretty sure that CDs debuted in 1982, which would make them a mere 30 years old.

I talked to a young adult woman named Zelda yesterday. Not short for Griselda, not the Jewish thing either - the video game one.

That gave me pause.

Sudlow: Turning 20 was good. I was young.
Turning 30 was good. I considered myself young.
Turning 40 was good. With only a little self-delusion I could believe I was young.
Turning 50 sort of sucked. No more young, but I can still act childish.
I'm 57 and I am not looking forward to 60.

I don't remember exactly but that sounds about right for consumer-release, but they probably had the technology a few years before that.

What my first CD player looked like:

That was roughly $500 and when I bought it I could only afford 2 discs to go with it.

One of them was Dark Side of the Moon. The other was from some farkin' band that the Dude hates.

CSB: On a roadtrip with my 13-yr-old son last week we found an awesome radio station. Played all the really good stuff from the late 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. Even some of my old punk and new wave stuff. We were rocking out, he was really enjoying it  too. I even got to tell him all of the old trivia about the various bands we were listening to (that I learned from MTV news when MTV still did music). And then a commercial came on, telling us it was THE BEST OLDIES STATION in the region. :(

Damn, I imagine that was an epiphany. I'm waaaay into my 30s but still hear people referring to the whole Seattle music thing as "classic." It's the same with movies. Farking Goodfellas is now a relic. As am I.

We're not the first to experience aging, and we damn sure won't be the last. The best we can do is to avoid killing people who say sh*t like, "I just turned 21, and already feel old."

Hey man, despite our personal taste in motorcycles, it's always good to see another Fark Rider. I'm a Triumph man. Lots of beemers over the years. One-offed an AMF-era Superglide with my dad, and it ran for about two weeks before it was quickly apparent the bike was never staying on the road. God I hate AMF.

Fear not, indeed.

I've spent since Boxing Day upgrading a graphics workstation from XP to Windows 8. You bet your ass I'm feeling old.

On the other hand, other than discovering the MBR on my 2 TB backup drive was fuxxored, requiring hours of file recovery and then the decision just to reformat everything and recopy 100 gigs of data, it's been pretty straightforward. Probably because I've been working with Windows for 23 freakin' years.

Embrace the the knowledge of having lived through things that are simple inconceivable to the younguns!

Toys made from steel with sharp corners, BB Gun wars with aerosol-fire barrel grenades, 2 TV channels (yes just two), Carbs and points, Records (big black cd's my daughter calls them), landing on the moon and actual manned space exploration, the threat of of being nuked at any minute, duck and cover.

Having your afternoon ruined by having to watch Tricky Dick Impeachment proceedings, 8mm home movies, Civil Defense films in school, etc.

I am old now, but it doesn't matter because I'm rich and successful and I get all the 20y/o poon. When I was young I did everything that was possibly cool before it was cool (especially all the drugs)? And now all it takes is a puff of grass and I see pink triceratops running around my awesome den w/ 110" flat screen tv... because I'm reserved in my rock-n-roll twilight years but still just cool enough.

I'm 55 and this thread really reminds me of the sweet rides I used to take in my Aston Martin (when I wasn't being much cooler in my original model VW van)... I even raced Charlton Heston once (and won, which he never admitted to, but I didn't mind I'm pretty cool like that. Never been one much for bragging).

I remember when this stupid high school band Aerosmith was starting out, we taught them how to do drugs.

Go ahead, think of a band that was popular back then.
Got one?
Ok, catch this groovy wave; I saw them on their first night when they opened for that other awesome band.
Here is a picture of a ticket stub from google image search. Check. It. Out.

Now I'm ancient and old but I don't feel it. Maybe it's all the wake boarding I do with my 28y/o bisexual girlfriend whom with I have a totally open relationship? Maybe it's all the crazy sex I have with my 28y/o bisexual girlfriend and all the other hot college girls she brings over?

It's cool, none of them realize how disgustingly rich and awesome I am... I make sure they only see my beachouse (and they think it's my home!)... it's better for them.

Well, I have to get to bed. I can hear the 7 large breasted 20y/o children in my bedroom waiting for me to tuck them all in. I know, I'm a bastard, but what can I do? This is my real actual life that is really going on, I just have to put up with it.

That list did nothing for me as between the 90s childhood bits and the American bits I honestly couldn't connect with most of it. I'll be 41 on Monday and haven't really noticed any significant changes for as long as I can remember. Mind you, you do lose your memory as you age.

However, knowing that both the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair ZX Spectrum turned 30 this year, that did make me pause for a moment to chase the kids off my lawn.

My first real "I'm old" moment came the day MCA from Beasty Boy's died. Was at a Japanese steak house and when I sat down I saw an attractive girl and thought "that girl is cute." The conversation turned to his death and she said "who are the beasty boys?" Insert Chris Hansen  picture here.

At 55, I'm old enough to clearly remember when Kennedy was shot (both of them, actually) and still young enough to recognize Blink 182. A lot of the TV and movie references on the list were unfamiliar, but I've never been much of a TV and movie kind of guy. Same thing with the games...never was a gamer. Most women my age look old to me, and I'm pretty certain most women 35 and under see me as a creepy old man. (Or at least they do when I'm not completely invisible to them.) Also, for the record, I'd hit Eminem's daughter like the fist of a wheezing, gasping, mildly upset god.

not so csb, but still somewhat related:

Way back in the mid 90s, I along with every other young teenage girl was obsessed with Leo DiCaprio. As such, we all loved that adaption of Romeo & Juliet that came out back then. About a week or so ago, I saw it was on HBO GO and put it on in the background while I did some work. I could barely get by the insanely dated clothing and haircuts on display in the first shootout scene. Shame it does not hold up, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
