It is fun to trade cultural references with them, though. See them get outraged when you have no idea about something that was massive their entire childhoods, or seeing what they know of the '90s. They can all talk happily about Friends, for some reason.

My missus just turned 30, and she reckons that she's the Family Guy generation and I'm the South Park generation. Before me was the Simpsons generation.

:hat
You're a couple years older than me and I'm definitely still The Simpsons generation

Maybe. I mean obviously I watched a ton of the Simpsons, but never when it first blew up huge. I was just a kid, and we only had one TV. :conf

South Park blew up huge when I was 15, so in terms of which cartoon was the big deal among my friends, it was South Park. That was the cool kid on the block. Going to the South Park movie got us hyped as hell, way more than the Simpsons movie years later did.

Simpsons was the "Adult" cartoon I remember growing up on... I was 11 when South Park came out and 14 when family Guy came. SOuth Park was always my Fav of the 3.

As far as kid shows in general ......Keenan and Kel was the biggest show throughout Elementary school.... I remember busting my brothers balls for Drake and Josh being his favorite and telling him Keenan and Kel were way cooler.

Just out of curiousity for those that are under 30 and still are in to new music....

How do you all listen to music? Do any of you guys actually listen to entire albums or do you just listen to random songs from artists you like and put them on play lists? I feel a little out of touch at 38 when it comes to new music but I'm just curious how you all take in new music.

I reckon it's the boomers. Grew up, lived in and inherited the greatest era of peace and prosperity in human history. Completely fucked the rest of us over by selling off our public institutions, running up ridiculous amounts of debt, and allowing essential infrastructure to decay. Voted over and over for empty suit corporate cunts to strip away worker's rights, benefits, wages and protections. And that's without even mentioning mass immigration. Fuck the Boomers. Generation Selfish. :bart

Which generation do you think is the worst? And why?

:hat



how would you know, I bet you barely ever even talk to your boomer parents, what insight can you possibly have into how they operate or how they’ve lived?

Aye, I don't get it myself, if I was to class anyone as Millenials, I would say it's the generation who grew up with the internet, not kids who were around when it appeared in the 90s but kids who have never known a world without the internet, mobile phones or not having a PC or laptop in the home, people hitting their teen years in the mid to late 2000s.

Gen X = Super Nintendo, Sega, listening to cassettes on walkmans and CDs in the house
Millenials = Internet, mobile phones, Xbox and iPods.
Gen Z = Kids leaving school just now, never known CDs, vinyl to them is grandparents shit, memes and Youtube.

That seems more of an obvious generation leap to me than people born before or after 1980.
This might be the best post I've seen on the subject.


And people complain about millennials being crybaby snowflakes - Well, blame the generation that raised them.
:lol: You do realize that your second point merely substantiates the first, right? :lol:

The attitude at the work place was a lot different... I started a full time job in 07' ...the whole feel of "Millennials in the workplace" started to come up around 2011...All the sudden there would be these kids showing up to interviews in ball shorts, wearing headphones and looking at their cell phone the entire time...They would show up and quit on the first day the second they were asked to do something...They would constantly stand around on phones in the middle of the dining room and the hall ways in plain sight where customers and residents could see them..They would get a job yet every single day find some way to get out of working, then when they would get their schedule cut they would throw tantrums till they got their hours back, then would immediately call out again...…. These kids were very bizarre to people my age or older, we had never seen anything like them and their mentality was way different than ours.
i work at a gold mine in remote north west queensland.

we get a bunch of millennials in every couple of months or so.

we made it a sport to pick which one quits first.

bonus points if they totally lose it and cry.

kind of like the shawshank redemption really.

it should be which decade you started high school in.

80s - gen x
90s - gen y
00s - millenial
I don't know....A 10th grader who started in 99' is whole different generation then a 9th grader coming in 00'? I was a 9th grader in 00' and we looked, talked, dressed and acted exactly the same as the 10th graders and same goes for the 12th graders who started in 97'....

07' Is the year I saw things change from the overall feel I had growing up as a kid to early teen in the 90's and a teenager to young adult in the early to mid 00's. Rock music became non existent in the mainstream, Hip hop became very watered down and nothing more than corny dance music... Baggy pants turned to skinny tight fag pants..... shaved heads, flip cuts, nick carter cuts turned into shaggy mops and shiny comb overs, cd players were now non existent, nobody went to music stores, arcades and carousels vanished from malls, a thing called youtube and a thing called myspace appeared on the internet....all the sudden a new group of kids emerged called Hipsters....get my drift? the early to mid 00's seemed like a whole different decade than the late 00's...Matter of fact looking at the 90's...1990-1992 pretty much still seemed like the late 80's, 93-98 was the overall feel of what we call the 90's where as 99'-05' seemed like a time in it's self.

Mellennials should be the High schoolers who started in 07'....Hence why the work place turned to shit in 2011 when the first batch of these losers got out of high school.

ok fair enough its just that you have to draw the line somewhere and decades ie 80s 90s, is a nice round number way to do it. because when people say what decade are you from, you will always say the decade you did high school in, that's where you get your first root, smoke dope for the first time, drink, get your license etc. it's the decade where you really find out who you are and what you're about. its also the decade you carry with you through life, ie the way you conduct yourself and your general outlook.

to illustrate, i was born in 72 but i'm an 80s kid all the way.

pac man, rubiks cubes, mirrored sunnies, flouro clothes, break dancing, walkmans, the a-team.

i sure as fuck don't identify with flared jeans, 8-tracks and the doobie brothers.

so for me, generations go by decades, its just easier that way.

There is a pretty good case can be made, that is true.

:hat
and i'm not saying no good albums have ever come out since 94, i'm saying that era was just unreal.

hard rock, heavy metal and alternative music was going off its fuckin tits.

look at the bands we had:

. guns n roses
. pantera
. metallica
. nirvana
. alice in chains
. faith no more
. sepultura
. kyuss
. slayer
. red hot chili peppers
. tool
. smashing pumpkins
. sonic youth

that's off the top of my head.

there's a whole heap of other bands that weren't as big as these ones but still with great albums nonetheless :good

Meh, every generation sucks at something. Gen Z gives me hope though. My kid and her peers are pretty legit. Well educated, informed. They learn from their Gen X parents mistakes and their older SJW millennial cousins being in a constant state of offense. I've got hope for them.
