What would Datalounge be like if it were only for the under 45 set?

Inspired by this comment on the "Martin O'Malley as a 27-year-old groom" thread:

[quote]Who??! There should be an age limit on DL. 45 should be the cutoff age for posting here.

Well?

DL's not dull and witless enough already?

Illegible.

If the cut off age for posting was 45, I would understand none of the posts on the DL.

I don't understand most posts by those under 45 already. `

Well, there'd be no Helen Lawson threads.

Not so boring.

Is Wingdings going to become the default font?

Yeah, DL should have its own Carrousel!

A lot more spelling and grammar errors.

It would be like the comments section for tmz.com or imdb.com.

Oh, and if it were under 45 everyone here would be incredibly vain and selfish pigs!

Tt already exists op. It is called TMZ.Com.

"Oh my, yes, this place used to be just filled with queer fellows, those gay boys. Thank heavens they left. It's so much nicer talking about crafts and bus trips and church socials."

It's already like that in all of the threads about Lady Gaga.

Young people need elders, otherwise they have no context for things they think they created in some sort of vacuum, like, oh, skinny jeans, which are just peg leg jeans that many punks wore in the 80's.

Also, there is very little new music these days that can compare to: The Velvet Underground, Bowie, The Stooges, Blondie, Television, Patti Smith, Talking Heads, Duran Duran, Devo, Gary Neumann, Kraftwerk, Parliament Funkadelic, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Jimmy Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Bikini Kill, Nirvana, The Slits, The Raincoats, X Ray Specs, Joan Jett, The Clash, Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Run DMC, The Who, The Jam, Paul Weller, Style Council, and yes, U2 to name a few, except maybe Daft Punk and few others and they've been out for a while, and each and every one of those bands contain people either closing in on 45 or well over, and each and every one of them is cooler than any skinny jeaned hipster any day of the week, so suck it.

r17, I'd add Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder to that list. One of Daft Punk's songs on their new album is a tribute to Moroder, featuring Moroder himself.

Oh Christ. It would be like a Nasty Pig / Banana Republic salesbottom convention.

It'd be full of people showing fake IDs, each with a current photo that backs up their claim that they look 20 years younger than they are.

by Anonymousreply 2408/26/2013

I'm in my thirties and I've always looked up to people who experienced the world as it was before the 80's; they witnessed a time when there were still truly great movies, music and books. Life may be more comfortable now, but there's hardly any real beauty to be found anywhere. The only thing that seems to progress is technology. Also, everytime I look at footage from that era it strikes me how adult even those in their early twenties come across in their speech and mannerisms, whereas most 20-30 somethings of today seem to be trapped in a stage of perpetual kittenhood: mature men who dress in A&F and call each other 'Bro, and shallow, entitled women who talk with whiny, nasal valley girl voices and act like they're still their daddies' precious snowflake of a princess.

R25. speaks the truth.

R25 sounds fat. And bitter.

What an incredibly stupid idea.

R25 has proposed a radical idea for adulthood we all should love.

45 should be the cut off age. No one under 45 should be allowed to post.

This site would die without old cunty queens bitching about theater, decor and movie stars.

Every decade you see a shift in culture and tastes with the newer and younger posters, and that applies to any blog or message board.

For those complaining about how this board is full of fraus or freepers, consider what is posted above, because it explains the changes. You can't expect the same generation after generation.

R31, as long as they're the most pro-gay generation, they can cry all they want.

DATALOUNGE WOULD BE VERY DULL IF ONLY FOR THE UNDER-45 SET.

They don't want to do the pussy with us because we're old, our skin is sagging, our anuses are loose, we wear false teeth...

It's about beauty, star worship, self-serving, selfishness, narcissim, ME, ME ME!

by Anonymousreply 3508/27/2013

Would anyone under 45 actually use the term "45 set?"

by Anonymousreply 3608/27/2013

A lot of the racism would probably vanish. So would some of the more prudish moral policing that happens here.

You're kidding R37? The 18-45 are some of the most prudish here.
