It’s one thing to feel out of touch with current popular music as I was never hip enough to be in touch to begin with.
The 30th anniversary of Star Wars also made me feel old but I could rationalize that. I was three years old when I first saw Star Wars and can barely remember the circumstances. It feels like a long time ago but it’s also pretty much the course of my entire life.
Now I read that it’s the the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I was in high school when that show debuted which means that it’s been 20 years since I started high school! And the series ended around the time I finished college! These are recent memories, but 20 years is a long, long time.
There’s only one conclusion that can be reached from theses details: I am an old fogey.
Anyhow, Star Trek: The Next Generation is one of my all-time favorite shows. I’ll have to get some DVD’s to watch and try to relive my misspent youth.
