Overwhelmed [May. 20th, 2007|10:19 am]
Tony Grist

I don't recognise the Bowie references in Life On Mars because when Bowie first appeared I was looking the other way (career, kids, the usual) and I missed him.

And yesterday idahoswede  made a joke about Three Coins In a Fountain and I looked it up on Amazon and realised I hadn't see it and I'd like to

And Amazon were offering it in a package deal with Roman Holiday which- in spite of adoring Audrey Hepburn- I haven't seen either

And- oh sweet Jesus on a barmcake - the world is so full of books and movies and albums I've never read or seen or listened to

And I'm just so ignorant...

So maybe I'll use my "golden years" (ha-bloody-ha) to play catch-up.

For several things, I decided that I've been on top of them for long enough in my life -- and now I'm happy just to stop keeping up. Popular music is one. Video games is another (I dropped out after playing a couple games of Space Invaders). I suspect there will come a time that I really don't want to be on top of technology, although a lot of Web 2.0 applications are keeping the geeky bits safely behind the hood.

I dropped out of video games at about the same time as you. I mastered Space Invaders and that was it. Now I confine myself to ladylike games of solitaire.

It would never even occur to me to keep up with video games.

As for keeping up with technology, that's an inevitable part of my work, not something I think about. But I do understand what you mean--my knowledge of web design kind of stopped with CSS.
