7080: GenX Pop. Check out my new blog!
Nobody wants to be pigeonholed, but the truth is, if you grew up in the 1970s and were a teenager in the 1980s, you will share some pop culture references with your generation. Generational "experts" usually define Generation X as the group of people who were born between 1965 and 1980. GenXers have been called the MTV generation, latchkey kids, slackers, baby busters, and other nicknames. I prefer to think of us as the cool kids.
I created this 7080 newsletter to discuss GenX pop culture. It’s a big world, and I’m a tiny part of it, so I’ll address what I know best: American pop culture of the seventies and eighties. I’ll examine television, movies, books, comic books, and music, hopefully within the context of what was happening at the time.
You’ll find all of the posts on LinkedIn.
