NOTES: Generation Flux

Singles, Linda Powell, 1992: “not having an act is your act …”

 

Mallrats, Silent Bob, 1996: “Adventure? Excitement” Jedi craves not these things.”

 

More Mallrats, Ben Affleck on Bluntman and Chronic: “Why in God’s name would I want to keep writing about characters whose central preoccupation is weed and dick and fart jokes? You gotta grow, man. Don’t you ever want anything more for yourself?”

 

O Brother, Where Art Thou, Ulysses Everett McGill, 2000: “She musta been looking for answers.”

 

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, George Carlin, 2001: “Don’t be so suburban. Gay, straight, it’s all the same now.”

 

 

ARTICLE: “Look Who’s Getting Rolled Out of the Bar,” New York Times, Feb. 10, 2008

 

WIKIPEDIA ON GEN X:

“A stereotypical reputation as apathetic, cynical, disaffected, streetwise loners and slackers.”

“Received the ‘X’ tag for lack of a defining social identity.”

 

 

Overeducated and unemployed. More likely to identify with WWII era grandparents than baby boomer parents in values morals, and practical living skills.

 

ME: I tried to befriend some aging hippies, but I think they found my lack of a clear social agenda disconcerting.
