“GenXers are doing the quiet work of keeping America from sucking.”
Jeff Gordinier

“Generation X has marinated in the fat of boomer mythology for so long now that we're like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix when he's hooked up to all those tubes and wires in a tub of gelatin. We don't even notice.”
Jeff Gordinier, X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking

“Viewed from the outside, fine, let people think we're an army of yupster antique dealers, puttering around in granny glasses and moth-eaten cardigans, fishing through a milk crate for that pristine vinyl copy of Daydream Nation while everybody else rushes home for the Clay Aiken Thanksgiving special. We know what's really going on. We're the ones lying in wait like a parking lot full of Trojan horses.”
Jeff Gordinier, X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking
