Not only does Jim Cornette think Obama was the greatest president we ever had, but he cut a pretty nice and touching promo about the struggles of BLM. Including the talk of how Breonna Taylor was killed in Jims hometown. I like Brian, I like Jim. They're different, but I disagree with Brian with how things evolved. Are they evolving? Yes, but the current gen caters to only current wrestling fans, while Jims gripe is making wrestling more broader and real so average people can get into it. One of the guys in my band asked "You know about AEW?" "Yeah of course". He responded "It looks really silly goofy" and turned it off. Thats now how you gain fans and looking at 'modern style' wrestling (Really AEW) their numbers have been pretty much even the past 8 months. 500-700k mostly, with some spikes up to 900+. And to sound old, most of the people who are really into more 'modern' stuff, grew up with the stale 00's WWE stuff.
And to put a bow on this, I really liked wrestling much better when the audience believed it, and wasn't mostly filled with podcast smarks.
Gen X is a smaller generation than either the baby boomers or millennials, so there isn't quite as many of us. We got flack back in the 90s for being tuned-out grunge-listening flannel-wearing slackers, but since then it's been crickets.
I do like some of the memes that came out of all this.
| Some of the stuff you said could be applied to other consoles as well (like the N64). But overall I understand your point, since the scenario a console was made in is something to be considered.
I have not much to add about the PS2, it is just such a complete console. The Gamecube followed a similar path to the PS2 when it comes to game library, but off course, with much less games. I see the Xbox as very different from both, more "western", lacking on the japanese side.
When this was discussed on NA a long time back, someone had posted the link to a famous comic book collection and the story behind. I can't recall its name. Can someone please post it in this thread. Thanks.
Eh... It's because they are now all late-40s/early-50 year olds becoming empty nesters and on the home stretch to retirement.
They are to old to be "relavant" but to young to be "detached" from a modern way of thinking.
