Backtrack: GenX Music Platforms

1/10/2019
More
About This Episode As a GenX'er I still remember the thrill of buying a new record album, running home and carefully opening the record, putting it on the turntable, then listening to the entire album while looking through the album cover for behind-the-scenes pictures and lyrics. I'm not saying that this is better than CDs or digital downloads but it was a different experience. In this week's podcast we think back on those days and how records and tapes influenced our lives.

Bandersnatch, Lemmings Mobile, & Oculus Go

1/3/2019
More
About This Episode Happy New Year! The people at GenXGrownUp are thinking some (unusually) deep thoughts going into the new year. George wonders, "Is watching a movie on an Oculus Go with other people in the room rude?" Mo wonders, "What can I build to justify owning a 3D printer?" And Jon has the deepest thought of us all, "Can Holmes and Watson really be that bad?" These and other meta-physical thoughts are discussed on this week's podcast!

Backtrack: Bulletin Board Systems

About This Episode There was once a time when it took hours to download a file, when you had to find out from friends and magazines the numbers to the best... well.. let's call them "sites," and when your home phone (no mobile back then) was the same line that you used to access remote servers. That was the wonderful, frustrating, and amazing world of BBSes. In this episode we talk about our first time using computers to access a larger world! Patreon » https://patreon.com/genxgrownup...

12/13/2018
More
About This Episode Back in the 80's Bob Geldof, a singer and activist, started Band Aid to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. Whether it was intentional or not, that started a wave of celebrity activism which raised millions for various causes and created a few number one music hits as well. In this Backtrack we take a look at some of the great work done and remember what it felt like to see it unfold live. Patreon » https://patreon.com/genxgrownup Facebook » http://fb.me/GenXGrownUp...

Backtrack: Novelty Records

11/29/2018
More
About This Episode I won't say that Generation X had the silliest novelty songs, but we sure had a ton of them! Such classics as "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah," "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," and "Monster Mash" were at the top of our hit list when we were kids! In this episode we talk about some of the unique songs and unique methods of how we got them. Remember, no internet back then, we actually got records in cereal boxes if you can believe that!

Backtrack: Video Game Arcades

11/15/2018
More
About This Episode They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It's definitely something that had its day and will probably never be back but is still the source of many memories for GenX'ers.

I didn't ask for much as a kid but the exception was when the Scholastic Book Fair was coming to my school! They had so many books that it was difficult to choose!

Backtrack: GenX Future Predictions

10/18/2018
More
When Generation X dreamed about the future, we pictured either a technological paradise with flying cars, helpful robots, no illness and rocket ships or we pictured a wasteland brought on by some human action. Neither came true (luckily in the latter), but we're still a ways off from where we thought we would be by now. In this Backtrack we look at what we thought the future would hold and discuss some of the things we thought we would have and don't, and what we have that we never would...

"Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don't want a bear bite back it down." Huh? That was just some CB talk in honor of this week's Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX'er who was into anything electronic will have a story about visiting a Radio Shack. They were the place to go when you needed a hard to find part or when you wanted to speak with some knowledgeable people about CB radios, computers...

Before Magic the Gathering and Pokemon cards, we used to collects cards for no reason other than to have them.

One, two, three.... NOT IT! How many times have you started an exhausting game of tag with those words? In this week's GenXGrownUp Backtrack we remember playing outside.
