Hey, GenX’ers! With all the social distancing & quarantines going on we started thinking about what we did as kids when we were grounded, stranded, or just plain bored!

A time-traveling aircraft carrier, an intergalactic football player, escaped Kryptonian convicts, and a wise old muppet with telekinetic powers: what do these all have in common? They’re iconic Generation X science fiction films which are celebrating their fortieth anniversary this year, of course! We run them down and celebrate their legacy in this edition of the GenXGrownUp Backtrack.

Oingo Boingo. If you’re a GenX’er, that name probably brings up memories of Dead Man’s Party in Back to School or the title track for Weird Science. The band, with frontman Danny Elfman, made an ’80s sound that was fun, different, and decidedly cool. We take a look back on Oingo Boingo, Danny Elfman, and the amazing music they’ve produced!

The catchphrases you know probably do more to identify when you grew up than anything else. If someone were to say, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”, “Where’s the beef?”, or “Gag me with a spoon”, would you understand what was being said? If so, then you should definitely listen to this episode of the GenXGrownUp Backtrack!

8 CDs for a penny?! This must be too good to be true. I mean, who would fall for such an obvious bait and switch? Well apparently, by 1975, over 3 million suckers were on the hook for buying a set number of full price records over the next year and it just kept growing. In this episode we talk about our experiences with this evil, but brilliant, marketing scheme and how we fell for it just like you!

Today, no one blinks twice at what computers are able to do with graphics. But growing up in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s we blinked two or three thousand times. Every time you looked, graphics got better and better and we were constantly amazed. In this week’s Backtrack we take a look at this amazing progression from pong to Pixar!

Y2K really turned out to be a whole lot of nothing when 2000 came around, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it! Reactions ranged were from “whatever” to “we’re all going to die.” Join us as we talk about what the whole thing was about, some real concerns that most people were not paying attention to, and what actually happened when we rolled over into the new millenium.

On each episode of the GenXGrownUp Podcast, we talk about the things we’re looking forward to. Often we follow up on these topics on a subsequent episode, but sometimes those topics slip through the cracks. For this show, we’ve scoured every episode from the past year to find anything we were looking forward to that sort of dropped off the radar and we didn’t talk about it again. What happened? Did we see/do that thing? If yes, was it worth looking forward to? Join Jon, Mo, & George in this look back at the things we were looking forward to in 2019!

When cable TV first came out, most people got it for the clear reception but not necessarily for any additional content. That changed when HBO hit the market.

Growing up in the ’70s and ’80s there were brand names that seemed like they would go on forever: Pan Am, Woolworth, A & P.

Sadly, not all of us were able to participate in the joy of owning lunch boxes. Some were not able to show all their friends which TV shows they liked, which cartoons were the coolest, or use that awesome thermos. But at least two of the hosts of GenXGrownUp were part of that lucky group! Come join us as we talk about what made lunch boxes such a status symbol.

In 1930, a ninth planet was added to the list of planets in our solar system. Then in 2006, it was removed and reclassified as a “dwarf planet.” For some of the folks who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, this was sacrilege! Join us for this Backtrack as we have a heated discussion about Pluto and its place in our solar system.

From the mid-1950s the Soviet Union and the United States were engaged in a race to be the first to conquer outer space. When President Kennedy challenged the country in 1962 to go to the moon and come back within the decade, it seemed like an impossible task: something that was science fiction. But the United States met the challenge and succeeded. This week we talk about how the space race affected us growing up Generation X.

When we started talking about Movie Musicals of the Generation X era, I don’t think any of us thought we would get into a debate over what makes a movie a musical. I mean, it’s obvious right? Well, since I (Mo) write the show notes I’m gonna say that George is wrong and I am right. What do you think? Is Purple Rain a musical?

How would you like to see through walls? How about becoming the big man on the beach in only a few weeks? Still no? Well how about growing your very own sea colony? All of these sounded pretty cool and reasonable to a young comic book reader and they promised a lot. Come take a trip with us to look back on some of the strange, bizarre, and downright impossible things that were promised in old comic book advertisements.

One of the defining experiences of growing up a GenX’er was appointment TV. When breaking news hit, you watched it live as the newscasters struggled to get the facts. When important shows came on, you planned your time so you can watch it when it came on, and when major events occurred, you were glued to the set because you didn’t want to miss anything. Unfortunately, a lot of the important things we remember most are not the happiest memories but they will remain with us for the rest of our lives.

The movie-going experience growing up GenX couldn’t be more different than the experience today. Waiting on long lines for hours, racing to get the good seats, only being able to get a soda, popcorn, and candy, and mostly relying on word of mouth and a few reviews to help you select what to see were the norm. In this Backtrack, we have a ton of fun talking about that experience, how the movies themselves have changed, and how they compare to today!

Video arcades did not suddenly spring up overnight. They started small, with a machine or two scattered here and there in pizza parlors, convenience stores, and gas stations.

It’s hard to image that there was a time where you couldn’t get in contact with just about anybody, anywhere, anytime. In this week’s episode, we look at how our lives were different growing up as GenX’ers and how the way we communicated affected our lives. How did we survive? We did — pretty well actually.

GenXGrownUp visited Lake City, FL March 2-3 for Infinity Con 2019. After the first day we headed back to the hotel and hunkered around a microphone to share our experiences and impressions with a live online audience.

You may notice this podcast sounds a little different, and that’s because for the first time we recorded the show in the same room! We were all attending Pensacon (you can hear our thoughts about the convention here: http://genxgrownup.com/podcast-pensacon-2019-se) and sat down together in the Hilton Homewood board room with our gear and got to recording. In this week’s episode, George invests in some audio equipment he hopes his wife doesn’t find out about, Jon plays a game that doesn’t let him down, and Mo talks about a really dull tech toy. Of course, we talk about a ton of other stuff too!

Back in the 70s & 80s, nothing sold a product better than a great mascot or spokesperson. Everyone knew Mr. Wipple, Chalie the Tuna, and the Maytag repairman, and they became almost synonymous with the products they represented. We thought that they’d be around forever but times change and many of our beloved characters have been replaced. In this Backtrack we remember some of our favorites and talk about what made them so memorable.

On each episode of the GenXGrownUp Podcast, we talk about the things we’re looking forward to. Often we follow up on these topics on a subsequent episode, but sometimes those topics slip through the cracks. In this Special Edition podcast, we’ve scoured every episode to find anything we were looking forward to that sort of dropped off the radar and we didn’t talk about it again. What happened? Did we see/do that thing? If yes, was it worth looking forward to? Join Jon, Mo, & George in this look back at the things we were looking forward to in 2018!

Back in the ’70s and ’80s, when you only had original programming on three channels (PBS didn’t count), there was a dark thing called “reruns.” This was when all the new shows were just repeated week after week while we waited for the new season to arrive. But there was a bright light in the darkness called Battle of the Network Stars! This was the chance to see your favorite television superstars compete in “Olympic-like” events for the honor of the TV network they represented. It was goofy and silly, and a blast to watch!

As a GenX'er I still remember the thrill of buying a new record album, running home and carefully opening the record, putting it on the turntable, then listening to the entire album while looking through the album cover for behind-the-scenes pictures and lyrics. I'm not saying that this is better than CDs or digital downloads but it was a different experience. In this week's podcast we think back on those days and how records and tapes influenced our lives.

Happy New Year! The people at GenXGrownUp are thinking some (unusually) deep thoughts going into the new year. George wonders, "Is watching a movie on an Oculus Go with other people in the room rude?" Mo wonders, "What can I build to justify owning a 3D printer?" And Jon has the deepest thought of us all, "Can Holmes and Watson really be that bad?" These and other meta-physical thoughts are discussed on this week's podcast!

There was once a time when it took hours to download a file, when you had to find out from friends and magazines the numbers to the best... well.. let's call them "sites," and when your home phone (no mobile back then) was the same line that you used to access remote servers. That was the wonderful, frustrating, and amazing world of BBSes. In this episode we talk about our first time using computers to access a larger world!

Back in the 80's Bob Geldof, a singer and activist, started Band Aid to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. Whether it was intentional or not, that started a wave of celebrity activism which raised millions for various causes and created a few number one music hits as well. In this Backtrack we take a look at some of the great work done and remember what it felt like to see it unfold live.

About This Episode I won't say that Generation X had the silliest novelty songs, but we sure had a ton of them! Such classics as "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah," "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," and "Monster Mash" were at the top of our hit list when we were kids! In this episode we talk about some of the unique songs and unique methods of how we got them. Remember, no internet back then, we actually got records in cereal boxes if you can believe that!

About This Episode We are almost done with talking about "Ralph Breaks the Internet".... almost. But besides that George tells us why he thinks Room 104 needs another look, Mo has a non-opinion on Fallout 76 and Jon forces himself to talk about something not Wreck it Ralph related by telling us about his early excursions into the world of Dash Cams.

About This Episode They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It's definitely something that had its day and will probably never be back but is still the source of many memories for GenX'ers.

About This Episode You would never believe this but Jon is still talking about Wreck it Ralph 2! When we do get a word in edgewise, George gives us a surprising update on the #NOFILTER interactive game and Mo talks about the new video game based on Call of Cthulhu.

I didn't ask for much as a kid but the exception was when the Scholastic Book Fair was coming to my school! They had so many books that it was difficult to choose!

When Generation X dreamed about the future, we pictured either a technological paradise with flying cars, helpful robots, no illness and rocket ships or we pictured a wasteland brought on by some human action. Neither came true (luckily in the latter), but we're still a ways off from where we thought we would be by now. In this Backtrack we look at what we thought the future would hold and discuss some of the things we thought we would have and don't, and what we have that we never would have predicted.

"Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don't want a bear bite back it down." Huh? That was just some CB talk in honor of this week's Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX'er who was into anything electronic will have a story about visiting a Radio Shack. They were the place to go when you needed a hard to find part or when you wanted to speak with some knowledgeable people about CB radios,

Before Magic the Gathering and Pokemon cards, we used to collects cards for no reason other than to have them. We had shoe boxes full of baseball cards and our binders were covered with Wacky Packs and Garbage Pail Kids stickers.

One, two, three.... NOT IT! How many times have you started an exhausting game of tag with those words? In this week's GenXGrownUp Backtrack we remember playing outside. Sometimes because we wanted to and sometimes because our parents banned us from the house!

On the date of the one-year anniversary of the launch of our podcast, we offer this special edition release. A few weeks before the first episode you heard, we did a conference call as a proof-of-concept and brainstorming session discussion what the show might and could be. We recorded that and did a test mix as a sort of dry run. Audio quality and editing are sub-par, but if you're a fan of the show, you might get a smile or two listening to the origin of what has become an important part of the GenXGrownU

Today most of us walk around with hundreds of gigabytes of storage in our pockets and think nothing of it. In the not too distant past, to have a few megabytes of storage was considered a ton! For those of us who remember 5 1/4" floppy disks, it would take 9,532 of them to store one megabyte of data! Listen to how we survived those days and how much things have changed in just a couple of decades.     YouTube » http://GenXGrownUp.com/yt
