there are people who are too young to remember 9/11, and right now some are the same age I was when it happened
there are also people who have never used a VCR. i think they are becoming extinct.
but when these kids get older and they are in their mid 20’s they’re going to feel just as weird about other things that kids are doing. and the people in their mid-20’s will always be “kids” to the next decade up, but never fully integrate themselves into the technology that the younger generation grows up with. it’s woven into their fabric. example: my mother has no idea how to use a computer, but friends of mine who are mothers know computers enough to raise their child with and around computers and technology
when you get old you have seniority. i hate people who cling to their age as a sense of status, though—who won’t listen to anything you say because they feel like what values and methods and things were important when they were growing up are the most valuable/important.
i want to make friends with a fairly average teenager so i can see what they do and see how different and alike our teenage years are, while i’m still young enough to care. maybe i should just have a kid.
so the dude who wrote the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is Joseph Stefano, the same dude who wrote like 97% (i made that up) of The Outer Limits episodes, aaaaand the dude who did the music for it is the very dude who did the music for The Twilight Zone
so at one point in time all of these people seriously were all drinking from the same chalice of imagination downing each others’ backwash in order to create Psycho
IT’S ALL INTERCONNECTED
also i’m pretty sure the Re-Animator theme music is only -just different enough- from the Psycho theme music to avoid any kind of lawsuit
