It was bad enough when I head The Ig's "Lust for Life" being used in a cruise line ad, then for Nissan.






Now AC/DC's "Back in Black" (25 years ago this month, boys & girls) is being used in a cell phone ad.





What's the Lumpy-ism?


FAYA.

You're not supposed to point out that great stuff from my youth is old now! [plugs ears and chants "Back in Black is not old and neither am I"]

Youth is lost when you recognize the music in the elevator.

When the cute girls in the checkout at the grocery store call you "sir" you know you are getting on in years.

I, at the age of six, asked my grandma this question "whats it like to be old"
grandma's reply "I don't know why don't you ask someon who is old"
moral - well I think you all get it

I'm still trying to convince myself that I was the youngest patient ever admitted to the cardiac unit...

I mean, come on, I'm only twenty five,err...thirty


The guys I went to school with are all fourty nine, most are fat, balding, and look rather...mature.


How the hell does that happen?

I was brought to a sudden shocking halt the other day while grocery shopping.

The muzak was Led Zeppelin.

Not a muzak version of Led Zeppelin, the original cut.

I almost just walked out of the store, leaving the shopping cart in the aisle.

Fuck. I'm old.

Somebody actually had the nerve to tell me last week that my long hair, Scorpions t-shirt, ripped up jeans with close-pinned holes, and untied high-tops was "so 80s" as they put it.

I love giving my older cow-orkers a blank look when they mention things like typewriters and whatchamacallem....eight tracks!

Funny that you mention this. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the ad. It first hit me a year or so ago when I heard Hendrix in a Pontiac ad. Crosstown Traffic was the song.

I have that Iggy vinyl. "Choice Cuts" I think it is. Although that may be a best of, I can't remember. I think it's funny too that they cut the song off before the 'we're delivering drugs' line.

Of course I've had it in the ear before.
