It’s Ian’s Fault! (smile)

In reference to Ian’s post, I spent my Wednesday losing my hearing and people watching. To that end, Stevie asks the question: Did I actually have an acute “generation gap” experience?

I had to shoot a music video Wednesday night with a live band in Buckhead. I won’t mention the bar to protect the guilty, (grin). Anyway, I’m in there with all the video stuff and I can’t drink anything because I’m “on the clock”. The band was way too loud and therefore, I could not hear anything the rest of this week.

Well along about midnight, this place is packed with the college crowd and they are just Drinkín like Lincoln on crack and dancing and falling on the floor and walking around with blank stares on their faces. So, between set’s, I’m am wondering to myself, “did I act like this when I was young”?

SUDDENLY, the acute attack happened. I used the phrase “when I was youngî! Holy Shinleaf! (I couldnít find Shinola in spell check) What did I just say? ìWhen I was young?î

So anyway, I am looking at all these youngíuns and thinking I really am disconnected from this crowd. I bet we have nothing in common. I bet I canít name one band they listen to.

So, of course, I called my press agent, put my car radio on 99x and looked to see if I had any wrinkles on my face.

Officially, Iím 29 but, Iím actually ((1.5*2)*(100/10))+10. However, if you convert it to Kelvin, I donít look a day over ñ400.7 Fahrenheit.

So, to all of Hotlanta, et al., have you ever had an acute episode of ìgeneration gapî syndrome? Because I want to know when it really happens. Of course, I know the stock answer is, ìItís just a frame of mindî, but I need to know if I should tell my agent to raise my official age to 29.5.

Plus, please help me find the best places in Atlanta to go and “be young”. I am compiling a list and checking it twice. I’ll have to post the results here. The other side of the coin is, of course, where does one go in Atlanta to eat, drink, dance when you’re old? I don’t know anything about that, (grin).

Signed, Confused and Aging.

    I’m only 24 and I’ve asked friends, “Did we used to act that stupid when we were younger?” To which my friends always respond, “No, no.. we’ve always been cool.” Anyways, age is a frame of mind. And clearly, I need to get out more.

    Ah yes age is a frame of mind and in that since…maybe at only 23 I’m old too…at least that’s what my wife likes to tell me

    I think most people didn’t get the joke. I’m only “officially” 29. I’m actually the age listed in the formula which = 40. That’s where the rub was coming in. (grin).. Now can I have some sympathy? (laugh). Stevie.

    I’m 25 and I’m completely agog at the half-naked 15 year olds at Starbucks. I don’t know if it’s “old” so much as, 15 year olds, for example, are way more bizarre now than when I was 15.

    Of course they are. They have to be. Right?
