Life Before Cell Phones

Life Before Cell Phones

2022-09-2901:13:52

Younger listeners who didn’t grow up GenX’ers sometimes question how people were ever able to leave the house without a cell phone. Every app on your phone had a pre-smartphone way to get the same thing done, and in this episode, we run through our typical day before cellphones were a thing.

Forty five years ago, one of Marvel comics’ most popular characters was brought to life for the small screen. For five seasons, David Banner wandered the country trying to find “a way to control the raging spirit that dwells within him.” In this episode, we remember the 1978 CBS television series, The Incredible Hulk!

Having been invented in the 16th century, roller skates were certainly nothing new or unique to Generation X. But the advent of the disco-ball, light-show, rock-music-filled indoor social club and skating arena was decidedly of our generation!

We had the great opportunity this year to host a panel at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo on Mini Arcade Machine Commerce. We love the fact that they are creating varying versions of the arcade cabinets we all loved growing up as GenX’ers, but are they worth it? How good are they? Are they possible investment opportunities or just nice shelf candy? We talk about all of those questions and a lot more during this presentation!

Films of Rob Reiner

2022-07-2101:04:02

Most of us were introduced to Rob Reiner through his portrayal of Archie Bunker’s son-in-law, Meathead in All in the Family. But that was just the beginning of a long and successful career as not just an actor, but more importantly, the director of some landmark GenX-era films. In this episode, we’re highlighting filmmaker, Rob Reiner, and remembering a few of our favorite films from his career.

Free-Play Arcades

Free-Play Arcades

2022-07-0701:00:33

The video game arcade we knew as kids is sadly gone, but in the last decade, there has been a trend toward free-play arcades. For just the cost of entry, dozens if not hundreds of original arcade & pinball machines are available to play with no need for quarters. In this episode, we will explore the rise of the free-play arcade and compare that experience to the one we knew growing up as GenX’ers.

It was forty years ago that a small alien visitor was accidentally stranded on our planet. He befriended a young boy and his family, developed a taste for _Reese’s Pieces_, and absolutely dominated the box office. In this episode, we look back on four decades of Steven Spielberg’s GenX masterpiece: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial!
