Boy, am I old.
Sunday, February 04, 2007
When I was in high school and college I listened exclusively to New Wave (what is today Alternative) and Punk Rock. Mostly New Wave but I did like the quality Punk Rock groups (Sex Pistols, etc.).

Anyway, so I'm watching TV last night and a commercial comes on and the soundtrack is the Buzzcocks' song "Everybody's Happy Nowadays". So I'm thinking, "Boy, I'm I getting old that a Punk Rock song is now in a commercial."

Well, it gets worse...much worse.

The commentary begins and all of the sudden we find out whose commercial it is and what this it's all about. IT'S A F#$%ING AARP commercial.

An American Association of Retired Persons commercial is using the Buzzcocks as it's background music???

I am totally dismayed, totally disgusted, and totally old.

    HAHA, that is so funny. The other day I heard 80's music referred to as Oldies. Um, since WHEN??

    I hear ya! When I heard The Smith's "How Soon is Now" in the Nissan Maxima commercial, I wanted to hide under a rock!

    I laughed a lot when I read your "Boy I'm Old". I didn't recognize any of those songs, but you know you ONLY have to be 50 to join AARP. Time has a way of creeping up on us!

    I knew there was something about you! Here's a fellow "new waver", I have not heard that term in a long time. Here's one for ya - when I was in high school, I hung out with the "mods". Somehow, that is "goth" now. Anyway, would you please let those of us that would prefer to stay firmly in the land of denial stay there?! You are making me do math here. I don't need to be reminded as a consequence that my freakin' 20 year high school reunion is this summer! OMG, I need a drink.
