“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, all 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!

REWIND: Going to the Movies

REWIND: Going to the Movies

2022-11-1701:02:28

The movie-going experience growing up GenX couldn’t be more different than the experience today. Waiting on long lines for hours, racing to get the good seats, only being able to get a soda, popcorn, and candy, and mostly relying on word of mouth and a few reviews to help you select what to see were the norm. In this Backtrack, we have a ton of fun talking about that experience, how the movies themselves have changed, and how they compare to today!

GenXGrownUp sat down with legendary Atari developer, Howard Scott Warshaw, to discuss his book, Once Upon Atari, his history at Atari, details on the forthcoming Yars’ Revenge Sequel, and how he made the migration from engineer to therapist. See the Video Interview » youtu.be/fYrs7sLJxP8 ONCE UPON ATARI is an intimate view into the dramatic rise and fall of the early video game industry, and how it shaped the life of one of its key players. This book offers eye-opening details and insights, delivered in a creative style that mirrors the industry it reveals. An innovative work from one of the industry’s original innovators. This is a detailed look behind the scenes of the early days of video games, with particular attention to the causative factors leading up to the video game crash of the early 1980s. It is also the journey of one industry pioneer, and how his experience creating some of the world’s most noted pieces of interactive entertainment reverberates throughout his life. It is a compelling tale of innocence, hubris, joy, greed, devastation and ultimately redemption, told with a fresh voice and unorthodox style.

In 1982, faith in the Star Trek franchise was waning. The lackluster performance of 1979’s Motion Picture could have marked the end for Kirk, Spock, & company. But just in the nick of time, a second film hit theaters and it was not only good, but so remarkable that it set box office records and re-invigorated the entire franchise. In this episode, we’re celebrating the fortieth anniversary of one of the best sci-fi films of all time, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan!

Life Before Cell Phones

Life Before Cell Phones

2022-09-2901:13:42

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.

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! In this episode, we lace up for a spin around GenX-era Roller Skating Rinks!

We watch a documentary series where athletes challenge themselves in some of the most extreme conditions on Earth, check out an app that can help you and your closest friends earn money at the pump, and a gift from a Fourth Listener launches one of us into a console gaming adventure! “NOPE” SPOILER ALERT!!! In this episode, we talk openly about the plot points of the film, “Nope.” To avoid spoilers, skip from the start of that discussion to approximately the 27-minute mark in your audio player.

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!

I can remember when I was on the road using the TV Guide web site to find what channels were what. but this was 10 years ago now so times have changed.
