Backtrack: Schoolhouse Rock

6/14/2018
More
"I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill..." "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?" "Three, is a magic number..." If you are a GenX'er then all three of these lyrics should've started the music running through your head and brought back memories of Saturday morning cartoons. In this episode we look back on Schoolhouse Rock and how we all learned the preamble and many other things because of it!

Jon and Mo are forced to admit that George won our Spring movie blockbuster wager (and of course George was the picture of grace and dignity about it).

Backtrack: Fads of Generation X

5/31/2018
More
We've all experienced fads as part of growing up. The Baby Boomers had things like the poodle skirts, the hula hoop, and the yo-yo and GenX had things like Swatches, Rubik's Cube and Tickle me Elmo! We do our best to cover this vast topic on the fads we most remember growing up in the 70's, 80's and 90's. So whip out the boom box and some cardboard and let's break dance!

Backtrack: Photography

5/17/2018
More
Imagine a time when you didn't know if your pictures came out for days or weeks after you took them. Imagine only being able to take a limited number of pictures at one time before having to change film. Imagine having to store your pictures in huge binders in order to see them. If that sounds like photo hell to you then you are obviously not a GenX'er! It was the way pictures were done when we were growing up. Listen as we reminisce (and lament!) over what we had to go through in order to...

WARNING! We hold a spoiler-rich discussion of Infinity War in this episode, so when you hear us give you the heads-up, skip ahead from 12 min 30 sec to 20 min 53 sec to skip that part of the conversation.

We have to talk about Infinity War of course, but also in this episode; George talks about Cobra Kai, Jon give his opinion of the new season of WestWorld (which George does not agree with) and...

Backtrack: GenX Horror Franchises

4/19/2018
More
Horror movies really came into their own when we were growing up in the 70s and 80s. Many of these movies have become the standard and sparked a huge number of sequels. In this episode, we talk about some of the movies that scared the crap out of us when we were kids and why we liked them! We were still working out the kinks of our new audio system so please bear with us and we will be up to our usual high standards soon! YouTube » http://GenXGrownUp.com/yt Facebook »...

But in this episode, George gets some new lights, Mo looks forward to yet another game-based movie, and Jon looks for an opportunity to use his new toy! Plus, with the release of Ready Player One, keep up with how we are doing...

Backtrack: Walkman & Discman

4/5/2018
More
There's probably not a GenX'er out there who wasn't somehow impacted by the introduction of the Sony Walkman. The ability to carry the music you want to hear and listen to it wherever you go was seen as nothing short of a miracle in technology. In this episode, we talk about the Walkman's history and our personal experiences with this life changing piece of tech.

Sitcoms of the 70's and 80's ran the gamut of different types. Some were focused on the family, some on the workplace and more than one had aliens!

GXG Podcast Backtrack 14: After-School TV

2/22/2018
More
So back in a GenXer's younger days, we knew the value of a good education. The first thing we did when we got home was study and do our homework....... BWA-HA-HA-HA! Sorry, I couldn't keep a straight face with that one. Are you kidding?! We would do anything but our homework! Part of our distraction was the afternoon TV targeting us as kids. And we were powerless..... YouTube » http://GenXGrownUp.com/yt Facebook » http://fb.me/GenXGrownUp Twitter » http://GenXGrownUp.com/twitter Website »...

Listening to music was a different experience when we were kids. DJs were local, you had to wait to hear your favorite song, and trying to record something off the radio took skill, patience and luck!
