You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: Computer Graphics

Today, no one blinks twice at what computers are able to do with graphics. But growing up in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s we blinked two or three thousand times. Every time you looked, graphics got better and better and we were constantly amazed. In this week’s Backtrack we take a look at this amazing progression from pong to Pixar!

GenXGrownup
The catchphrases you know probably do more to identify when you grew up than anything else. If someone were to say, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”, “Where’s the beef?”, or “Gag me with a spoon”, would you understand what was being said?
