I was recently watching "All Quiet on the Western Front".  One of the extras is about Universal "restoring the classics".  It was mentioned that 1975's "Jaws" was being restored.  I was 18 when "Jaws" came out.  It doesn't seem like 42 years since I saw this at the theater.  It's one of a handful of movies I have on VHS, LaserDisc, DVD and Blu-Ray.  "Gone With the Wind" being another. 

Damn, I'm getting too hold for this!

What makes me feel old are anniversary editions.

25Th Anniversary this, 30th Anniversary that and on and on.
I can remember these movies just hitting the theaters or in terms of really old movies when I saw them on tv for the first time as a kid and now it's decades later.

In terms of those vids with kids, if those kids can't figure out a walkman they probably couldn't put a tape in a VCR.

But it goes the other way too. I've never used Bluetooth and haven't got the foggiest idea of how it works. All I know is its not necessary in my life and I can live without it.

I really want to barf when I see these "straight out of Central Casting"  kids.   
If I'm alive when they come to power, I hope I'm on Mars. 
The worst of these spoiled brats is the "Urban Myth" t-shirt girl.  Like children off every generation, too much is being for them.  I don't think they know how to figure things out.  What will happen if the batteries in their remotes go out? "Now it's so, much easier.  You don't have to get off a couch or chair. You just go click..."  They are just too damn lazy.

These kids won't survive the apocalypse.

Even worse is when they just give it to you without even asking.

A small reward for having survived this long.  And this is only the halfway point.

I may be old.  But, I have purpose in  life.  I give our two cats a place to lay when they want to take a nap.
