At the corner movie rental joint I approach the counter and hand the super cool 17 yr old goth stoner chick the flicks I wanna check out, one of them being "8 Mile". first she cautions me to not let my kids watch the movie featuring Eminem because it has a lot of bad words. I kind of suspected that but I just kindly agreed with a nod. Then she landed the upper-cut and pulled my 'cool card' at the same time by saying "You may not like the movie either...people your age may think what these kids are doing is stupid".

Well **** me!

I wanted too snatch the case out her hand and go upside her stupid, punk hair-don't. But I just said "I'm sure I like it...I like Eminem".

Hell I'm only 2 or 3 months older than Marshall Mathers.:huh:

I don't need checkout folks to comment on the movies I choose. I don't care if they're the next Kevin Smith or Quentin Tarantino, biding time behind the counter until they make their big indie film -- they can keep their fargin' opinions to themselves.

Okay...try this:

"8 Mile" is not "groovy" and Eminem's music is not "far out".

I lived in Las Vegas for 8 years before moving back here so we didn't ski much. I used to own my own skis but got rid of them in LV. First time I went to rent the kid asked me what size - with the "new" shaped skis I said I didn't know - my old skis were 210s.

"Dude - you had those old straight edge skis?"

Give me a f*ing cane.

You think you've got problems - I'm 62 (in 2 days) and I love rock music and horror flicks.

Imagine the looks and comments I get when I plop Rob Zombie,Metallica, Flogging Molly and System of a Down CD's on the counter along with my Halloween, Skinwalkers, and Planet Terror DVD's. Sometimes the poor clerks look like they'd like to bolt from behind the counter. :)

WTF is wrong with you? Brian Head is less than 4 hours away, and while it's pretty lame, Mt. Charleston is within walking distance.

Sometimes I don't get carded but it seems since I have long hair and usually have a beard people think I'm "older"

I'm glad that I don't look old, because some of my buddies already have the doomed receding hairline.

Got Serj Tankian's "Elect the Dead" on right now ( my birthday present to myself). Also bought "Snakes on a Plane" soundtrack and an album by Soundgarden today. Tomorrow I complete my gift buying when the 3rd Resident Evil DVD comes out. :)

My 30 year old son and I are always swapping music and even he's amazed at the diversity of my collection. Heck, I'll try almost anything once. (music)

Once we had the kids - BH was just too expensive since we didn't feel like driving 8 hours each day to ski for 6-8 hours. Sucks when you don't have free babysitting and the kids aren't old enough to ski.

That's what I love about CO - my 5 year old is almost as good as my 10 year old and both love to ski. That's why the wife got ski gear this year - the kids are as good as she is and she want to go more often.

Ahaha 2 of my friends have them, and I'm older than they are actually. One has the huge bald spot in the back of his head that gradually gets bigger..

The other has the receding hairline where if he leans down you can see the line of thinning hair, if he lets it grow out at all it looks horrible, his hairline is like Hulk Hogans, no joke.

They're supposed to card people who don't look at least 27. I'm four years beyond that.

yeah, it's funny when I do beer runs with my buddies they give me this look because I get carded every time and they don't. LMAO

Speaking of said alcohol, I do believe it's time to start drinking. Well, after I load the dishwasher. Oh god, I am old!

Try having a really bushy, snow white beard at 28.

Honestly, Archie - I don't know how old you really are but from the pics I've seen I'd put you in your mid-40's. If you're in your mid-30's then you look a full decade older than you actually are. Sorry.
