    Eddie Van who?

    Whoa. Check out this Twitter interaction I just had. This is some girl in Vancouver who I don't know at all, but I think she's some sort of comedy writer, or someone I was following was a comedy writer who was following her, and I thought she had some funny stuff.

    She said that married people tend to look like brother and sister. Check this out:



    Do you think she's pulling my leg? I will follow up, but...wow. Is this how damn old we are?

    I'd say it's legitimate.

    She sounds like a moron.

    Even my seventeen year old niece is well aware of Eddie Van Halen.

    Her reference probably goes as far as the mid 90's:

    "Oh my God, Pearl Jam?!! You must be, like, super old!"

    I'm guessing that girl is 23 - 26.

    I followed up and said, "These people: (linked to pic below). Jump? Runnin' with the Devil? Hot for Teacher?" I got no response.



    I've also brought Jimmy Page up to women in their late 20's, and they had no idea who he was, either. Showed them a pic from the `70's, "He looks unhealthy."

    I could follow up again and say, "Myself and some other guys I know will waste an entire day debating exactly how this Van Halen guy laid his fingers on a fretboard. Part of our motivation was when we were teens we hoped it would impress the hot chicks. If you're going to tell me you don't know who Eddie Van Halen is, you've just invalidated our lives."

    You got no response because she probably thinks your some creepy, old guy stalking her tweets (or whatever you kids call it).

    Once i turned forty, it finally dawned on me, "DO NOT LOOK LUSTFULLY AT THE 19 YEAR OLD BARISTAS."

    I'm like someone's dad to them.

    Getting old, blows...
