Birthday horror...

I was just scanning down the page looking for new comments, when I came across the "Sober Redneck" post, which references Jimmy Carter.

That's when it struck me: The Carter presidency is as far in the past now as the FDR years were when Carter was in office. Yikes.

To put it another way, Pretty Hate Machine is as old now as Led Zeppelin's first album was when I was in high school.

I think I need a lie-down.

Ugh. I remember listening to NIN's PHM when I was in HS, 15 years ago...

Suddenly, I feel old.

I'm just not ready to hear Head Like A Hole during the Oldies Hour on the local "Classic Rock" station...

Ever since I heard "Crazy Train" being used to sell freakin' MITSUBISHI TROOPERS I've come to the realization that, yes, I **AM** the target demographic now...

Me? The smaller the Carter administration is in the rear-view mirror, the happier I am.
