Random thoughts/images/shit that makes you feel old thread

Post by rass » Wed Oct 19, 2016 4:26 pm

I've been meaning to do this a while (I think I even mentioned it). If just for me, so I have a permanent(!?) record of them when they hit me. Then Ryan posted the Dylan McKay picture the other day, so...

From my drive home: the Smashing Pumpkins single "1979" was released in 1996, which was 20 years ago but only 17 years after 1979.
I felt aswirl with warm secretions.

It's been more years since Seinfeld went off the air than years I was alive before it started. The Simpsons is in season 28.

I watched the Simpsons season one premiere.

Before that, I watched Simpsons shorts on The Tracey Ullman show.

Before that...

Seeing teenagers in Clash or Ramones shirts.

Actually, it's the opposite for me. I used to have a Clash t-shirt. What makes me feel old is seeing them in t-shirts of bands I've never heard of.

On our commute this morning while stopped in rush hour traffic, I notice a private plane that had just taken off from a small airport on my side of town. For some reason, I thought of Payne Stewart and how he passed, then spent like 5 minutes trying to imagine going like that and why don't we hear about it happening more often. Get to work and open up Twitter and the first thing I see is a Tweet from the PGA account about how today is the 17th anniversary of his death which a) really fucking weird that I'd randomly think of that today and b) holy crap, 17 years ago??

Don't tell me why I remember this, but there were two other athlete deaths with Payne Stewart within a couple of weeks: Wilt Chamberlain and Walter Payton.

Right, but if they tried to perform them on stage, they'd bomb so bad it'd look like a Learjet hit the ground in South Dakota at an incredible rate of speed and disintegrated everyone onboard.

I also picked up Ben Harpers' Will to Live that night. Jammed them both in a greenbelt the next day eating vodka soaked watermelon. Good times.

What makes me feel old is that *I* am older than Pat Morita in Karate Kid, and Wilford Brimley in Cocoon. And older than Danny Glover was when he was "too old for this shit."
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

One thing that makes a guy feel old is seeing his high school girlfriend on Facebook, and barely recognizing her because she now looks like an ugly, grandmotherly old crone.
