The Old Guy Still Hanging Out At College Bars

As I'm increasingly An Old I'm increasingly attuned to how much commentary is really just a version of GetOffMyLawnism. The Kids Today aren't doing it right. TV is terrible compared to the golden age of 1983. And, yah, the world - or at least a part of that world - passes you by after awhile. Nothing wrong with hanging out at the college bar, but if The Kids there aren't all that interested in you, well, when you were a Kid Back Then, you weren't too interested in The Olds either.

Things change. Times change. The don't really change all that much, really, or at least not so fast, though I think the internet has been an exception to that to some extent, but the details do change a bit. Still if you find yourself thinking that the scene just isn't as cool as it used to be, it's probably because you don't feel as cool as you used to feel. Because you aren't. Life goes on...
