    Default I'm getting old! WTF?

    Okay... so while things are slow here at work, something just dawned on me... When the hell did I get old? Now at age 36, I am married, with a kid, a house and a damn good job. My two favorite bands have been around for 30+ and 40+ years (VH and Aerosmith), I don't get new music, and I find myself slowly shifting to a more conservative stance (although I am still very left leaning).

    Where did it all go? Just a few thoughts on this cold December day....

    Funny, I was thinking the same thing a couple of weeks ago. I like some band that are newer than VH but they are still at least 20 years old. I suppose the Foot is "new" but that doesn't really count.
    I should look out for some new tunes but at this point I don't know where to start anymore. FM Radio sucks...

    The same thing hit me Saturday night.

    I was working for the radio station at our annual "Not So Silent Night" Christmas concert. The bands were Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust & All That Remains.

    I was with the station group, in the back of the arena, in the bleacher seats. I was sitting there with my arms folded, scanning the crowd, shaking my head while watching all the "younger" attendees head banging, throwing up the devil horns, etc. I was in to the concert, but not NEARLY like I would've been 25 years ago.

    25 years ago, someone smoking a cig around me, wouldn't have phased me. The other night, a young, drunk attendee nearly got knocked out. He was in front of me, and the drunker he got, the further back his hand would come for his "rock-n-roll" fist pumps. When the cherry of his cig nearly hit me in the eye, I backhanded his hand, and sent his cig flying. When he turned around to say something, all he got was a death stare in return. He moved right after that.

    It was at THAT very moment, I realized...I HAVE BECOME MY FATHER!

    What I used to tolerate; I no longer will.
    What I used to get in to; now seems like too much effort.
    People I used to tolerate; now I want to bludgeon them with their own body parts.

    And the scary thing is...I have NO idea, when this transformation took place.

    I'm feeling ya with this aging thing. I wake up every morning with a new ache or pain, I cannot stand 'modern music', I don't understand the youth of today and I frequently shout at the TV! I've often been heard to say "Kid's nowadays don't know they're born!" and "I remember when this was all fields". There's not one single thing about this that I mind, I enjoy being a grumpy old man (Old, I'm 35 fer Christsakes!), as long as my family is happy and healthy I couldn't care less. There's just one thing that bugs me though; why, if I'm approaching middle age, do I get Acne worse than most teenagers? I mean, without constant antibiotics this shit's wild!!...I just don't understand it, guess I'm just getting old!

    Getting this feeling a lot recently. The things I miss the most are the clean brooks running through the highlands. I miss my old friends, especially Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez. I miss the lilt of the bagpipes; even Bieber cannot replace that harmonious sound drifting through the valleys. I miss my wife Kate.

    Who is the oldest Linker?
