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: Video Game Arcades

They were dark, noisy, and not usually very clean, but we still loved going to video game arcades. In this backtrack we talk about the experience of the arcade: from scrounging for quarters under seat cushions to how we chose which games to play. It’s definitely something that had its day and will probably never be back but is still the source of many memories for GenX’ers.

What kind of movie could you make in 1984 for a little over $6 million? Well, generally not a classic sci-fi blockbuster that spawns sequels and even a TV show. We’re talking about The Terminator.
