“One thing I like about the 1950s is that kids were hip without any sense of irony about it.  They were dressing in fifties cool-cat clothing with complete sincerity.  Nobody wanted to be“retro”back then. With the Depression still fresh in everybody’s mind, did anyone in the 1950s dress up as the Joad family from The Grapes of Wrath, and go to Dust Bowl-themed parties because they thought it was cool?  Probably not.  In the past, the past was something you wanted to forget about rather than romanticize.  I really miss those days. ”

“Films like Daddy-O are here to remind us that millennials have been around since long before the millennium. ”
Frank Conniff, Twenty Five Mystery Science Theater 3000 Films That Changed My Life In No Way Whatsoever

“There’s also the inconvenient truth that I am friends with many millennials and they are actually quite nice and very smart.  They also have a nonchalant and unselfconscious acceptance of all kinds of different cultures and races and sexual preferences; in terms of equality and tolerance they are the most enlightened generation yet.  But on the other hand, they have beards and understand technology, so fuck them. ”
