Special Edition: Episode Zero

8/17/2018
More
On the date of the one-year anniversary of the launch of our podcast, we offer this special edition release. A few weeks before the first episode you heard, we did a conference call as a proof-of-concept and brainstorming session discussion what the show might and could be. We recorded that and did a test mix as a sort of dry run. Audio quality and editing are sub-par, but if you're a fan of the show, you might get a smile or two listening to the origin of what has become an important part...

Backtrack: Evolution of Digital Storage

7/26/2018
More
Today most of us walk around with hundreds of gigabytes of storage in our pockets and think nothing of it. In the not too distant past, to have a few megabytes of storage was considered a ton! For those of us who remember 5 1/4" floppy disks, it would take 9,532 of them to store one megabyte of data! Listen to how we survived those days and how much things have changed in just a couple of decades. YouTube » http://GenXGrownUp.com/yt Facebook » http://fb.me/GenXGrownUp Twitter »...

Backtrack: Dawn of Music Videos

6/28/2018
More
"Ladies and gentlemen... rock and roll." Those are the opening words spoken on August 1, 1981 that launched MTV and the music video revolution.

Special Edition: Billy Mitchell Interview

6/23/2018
More
All of us at GXG have a love for those classic arcade games we grew up playing in our corner arcades, so it should come as no surprise that we've been closely following the controversy surrounding Billy Mitchell. Mitchell, the first man to ever get a perfect score on Pac-Man, was in the news more than usual recently due to accusations of rules violations in achieving his recorded Donkey Kong high score. His score was removed from Twin Galaxies, the de facto video game high score governing...

"I'm just a bill, yes I'm only a bill..." "Conjunction Junction, what's your function?" "Three, is a magic number..."

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...

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.
