sorry Generation X

Okay I'm just going to have come right out and say it. I've tried hard to like Jeff Buckley's Last Goodbye but it doesn't do a thing for me. He just sounds whiny and boring. Most telling of all, I never get the urge to sing along.

Sorry Generation X, I feel I have failed you all.

Best I can do is say I think he's a musician who died?? Have never heard, and wouldn't recognise, any of his muusic!! I'm more of a failure than you!!!

Heretics! Heretics, the pair of you!

Wendy said...

will it be burnt at the stake, the guillotine, or that witches dunking thing that I forget the name of?

Catriona said...

Well, I think the whole point of the witch-dunking scenario was that you only died if you weren't a witch: witches themselves floated.

And I think to warrant the guillotine you have to be a filthy aristo--or at least French.

So I'm afraid it'll have to be the stake.

Sorry about that, but there's a principle to be considered.

*sigh*....I understand...principles very important to Generation X...what if I said I absolutely hated Reality Bites....would that gain me a last minute reprieve?

Catriona said...

Oh.

Well, yes.

We can't do away with anyone who hates Reality Bites. We need all the support we can get.

2paw said...

What is Reality Bites?? Is that a song too? Truly, things would be a lot easier if we all just talked about F Troop and Sinatra!!!

Wendy said...

Phew...that was a close one...thanks Catriona. Perhaps we could start a facebook group on that one to gather further support. although maybe someone already has.

2paw your ignorance of Reality Bites does you credit. It is an awful awful movie supposedly about " Generation X" starring fallen star Winona Ryder, actor defined by his roles in the 90s Ethan Hawke and Ben Stiller.
Here is the wikipedia summary

(geez i didn't realise Ben Stiller directed it). Ben clearly realised there was more money in broad comeides!

I used to love F Troop...would come home after school to watch it. I remember nothing about it except the guard tower used to fall down quite frequnetly i think. Oh..and our school recorder band played the theme music. My what those poor primary music teachers used to suffer through!
