So I was sitting in an auditorium today, waiting to hear some orchestral music, and I noticed this eight-year-old kid sitting in the row in front of me.
And I was just idly listening to my iPod prior to the show, and a few tracks from the first Pokemon album started playing on my iPod.
Suddenly, I realized that the kid sitting in front of me was about the same age I was when I first got the CD version of the Pokemon album, which has since been lost to the sands of time.
It also occurred to me that if I asked him to listen to a couple of tracks, he'd start asking me about Dawn and Max, instead of Misty and Brock... Or maybe even a few of the characters from the Bakugan anime.
And this made me feel like kind of an old dude.
SE++, what recent experiences made you realize that shit that was popular when you were a kid is no longer quite as popular?
