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.

We are trying a new technology for recording our podcasts for this episode so please forgive us for any quality changes you might hear! We're obsessive about quality so be assured that we are already on the path to return to the standard of quality you know and love! But in this episode, George gets some new lights, Mo looks forward to yet another game-based movie, and Jon looks for an opportunity to use his new toy! Plus, with the release of Ready Player One, keep up with how we are doing with our Movie Battle Royale! 4 rolls of quarters are on the line!
