How old-school are you?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby SpringTimeFox on Sun Mar 09, 2008 4:00 am

I was just wondering a few things. I feel slightly isolated from the rest of the world and the rest of my age group because of the things I do. I'm lucky to have found a man who deals with my views on life.

I'm 18 years old. I graduated when I was 17 years and 4 months old. I should be listening to people like
Brittany Spears and the other pop culture artists. I should be watching movies like The Other Bolynn Girl and Definitely, Maybe.


No... I have to be programed different. I listen to anything from the years 1940 to 1972... I watch old movies like Breakfast club, Sixteen candles, The Frisco Kid, etc. I drive a 1987 Thunderbird in the SUMMER and a 93 geo storm manual in winter.... I feel like I'm so much different from anyone else and its bothering me.

Are there other people out there like me? I mean, I pay attention to pop culture, obviously. But my real happiness is found in the middle years of the twentieth century... WHY?

How old are you and how olds-chool are you?
What Car do you drive?

I'm not asking so I may stalk you and steal your hood ornaments.
Speak softly and carry a big stick.
That way, when they dont hear you, you can hit them in the knees.


I'm finally back. I'm terribly sorry I was gone so long.

Of course there are other people out there like you. There are also people out there who feel they are in a similar situation and have an entirely different set of circumstances. I don't think you're as far from the social normal as you think, though.

Regardless, I'm seventeen. I fail at being old school.

I don't drive a car. I'm cool like that. Though, you're free to steal my hood ornament if you can figure out how.

Favourite band: the limelighters
Favourite rpg to this day: aDnD 2e
Drive: N/A (But my parents own an 88 volkswagon)
Can Live: Anywhere (I do mean anywhere, I was brought up on a trap line. I can live in the bush, on a farm, or in the city.)
Views on chastity: Should wait till marrage
Favourite method of listing to music: Record player


Yeah, that is as much as I can give for my old schoolness. Though I should mention that I pack a PDA, and mp3 player, as well as I am going in for programming so...

Hehe, I don't know how 'old school' I am...but I'm pretty accepting in my interests.
I'm twenty years old (born December 1987), believe in abstinence till marriage (how old school is THAT?!), and listen to everything from the 17'th century to today's popular music.

I love movies, all the ones that have been made, but I also love Shakespeare. And poetry. LOVE poetry, and literature, both from all ages, all times. I believe that modest is hottest (hurhur) and I think that mini skirts and bikini tops worn in public just look slutty *cough*BritneySpears*cough*. But at the same time, I love all the modern toys and goodies that have come out...like the Wii, for example.

I don't see anything wrong with having different tastes than the mainstream kids that are around you. Just enjoy what you enjoy...as long as that doesn't involve raping and murdering a tribe of first graders, or anything.

Jade, since when have first graders lived in tribes? x.x lol

I agree with you about everything though. I love the new gadgets, but I dont like how people are dressing in this new age... Its depressing and very slutty. I dont think showing off your whole body with just tiny strips of clothes covering your boobs and crotch is very flattering. It leaves little to the imagination and it scars young children. ><

Oh another of my favorite movies is My Cousin Vinny ^^

Old school is a relative term as we all define aspects of past generations as old school, when they merely were. I grew up in the 70's and what I though was awesome then really were just steps to where we are today. I still enjoy music from before my generation, and music from later generations. There is always good music, poetry and books from every generation.

Afraid it's not the same for me. I'm 19, all the cars I've had have been from the 90s; a '93 Blazer, ad '91 Bravada and a '91 Tempo, but that's due to a lack of money, not a particular taste, albeit the Blazer was and still is my favorite vehicle.

As far as music goes, I like rock. That is to say, I listen to anything from AC/DC to Disturbed, with the acception of death metal, which I just can't stand.

You have a good point, Skall. "Old School" is in the eye of the beholder. Seeing as I grew up in the '90's I think anything is old-school (even things from the '90's >< )

I'm old school, or I like to think so.

My cars would not show it. I've had a 1993 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (Loved that damn thing. Poor thing went kaput), a 1993 Plymouth Sundance Duster (Loved that car, too. It was a manual and SO much fun to drive. That thing was fast! Damn Avon lady or something hit me. The next car I get will be a stick...I miss it. ;_;), and now I drive a 2006 Saturn Ion II.

I LOVE all of the movies you've listed. The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, My Cousin Vinny. I think I've seen all of those in the past two weeks. I'm all about some old school Nintendo. I love the fashion of the decades before there was Dani. I love the music from everywhere in the 20's to the 80's.

I hate modern pop culture. I am about to graduate with a degree in Journalism next month and I don't even want to be a reporter anymore, a decision I just came to in the past couple months. A large part of that is because of the stupidity of pop culture, and the way it's worked itself even into local news stations. I interned at the biggest station in the area last summer, and as much fun as I had, it really pissed me off sometimes how they chose their stories. I thought I would go into that business and try to change things for the better, but I've decided it's past the point of no return.

I hardly even watch the news anymore, a total turn around from two months ago when I watched it every morning, and made sure to be home in time for the 5 or 6 o'clock news. It sickens me now.

/end depressing rant.
Today, Friday, October 10, 2009, is my last day on RolePlayGateway.com.
Everyone give me lots of love, because I shall be handing lots out. <3

I don't really know what is considered "old-school" anymore. I certainly don't drive an old car. He's a Nissan Skyline and he's my baby.

I have downloaded every single Freakazoid episode known to man. It's sad that no one remembers Freakazoid. He was the coolest, slightly insane, superhero ever.

One of my favourite films of all times has to be St. Elmos Fire. It's awesome. For those of you who dig the Breakfast Club, I strongly recommend tracking down St. Elmos Fire and giving it a whirl.

Music wise? I like Thin Lizzy, the Offspring, the Cult, Oasis and the Buzzcocks. Whom I'm guessing are considered old school. But, I also love bands like Babyshambles and the Fratellis- who are not as old school.

..Oh an I own a mini disk player.

I guess as was said before in this topic; old school is in the eye of the beholder.

Seriously.. just for you-

If you can try and download some episodes. He's still funny as fook!

And it's just cool that you remember him, Village Alchemist. A lot of people I talk to about Freakazoid think I'm crazy! I like to randomly sing the themesong at people. Lolz, normally they are all like "WTF."

That is so going as my desktop background at work. I don't care what anyone says.

I shall be looking up where to download episodes when I get home tonight, or look for somewhere just to watch them. You've rekindled my love. ;_;

Well, I really don't know how "old school" I am. I like celtic music, samurais, and greek legends. I'd rather ride a bike than drive a car any day. And I'd rather go back to a system of trade that doesn't depend on money. On the other hand, I also like modern anime (Karas, Buso Renkin), listen to J-pop, and play video games all the time (read: trying to finish 100% of everything on LoZ: Twilight Princess). I guess that it really depends on what day you catch me on.
One real question is: what is "old school"? Like has been adamantly said above, "old school" is in the eye of the beholder. In twenty years, this whole discussion will become academic, because all "modern" things, by then, will become "old school".
