What we need are hard cutoff dates for generations and some sort of binding adjudication process for those who don't want to be members of their generation.

There hasn't been any good music since Joplin died.

Scott Joplin, that is.

A good indicator, yes, but not the entire story. Since my parents were from different cultures I would assume that would have been reflected in what music was played in their households.

I'm in my 30s and I do feel like most of the people I meet in SL are older than me, though I do meet genuine millennials every now and then.

I guess technically I'm a millennial as well, just never felt like one, and the exact start years of each generation are up for discussion anyway. If anything, as much as I hate the "Xennial" Term I guess it's the closest I'll get. Mentally I definitely identify more with Gen X than Millennials.

Is Bryan Adams' Summer Of '69 About The Sex Position?
