So, we of the "Oregon Trail Generation" might not really be old, but I'm feeling it lately. From actively cringing when I hear slang like "on fleek," "turnt," and "bae" (slang revulsion translates into 100 Old Points per word) to consistently saying "WHO?" (always in that particularly aggressively annoyed tone of the Olds) when youthful coworkers mention up-and-coming celebrities, I realize that I am no longer a Youth. Not saying that I'm old, but when I looked back at these six pop-culture milestones, I definitely feel it...
We tend write about television and movies quite a bit on this blog. So why not keep the theme going with some last-minute Halloween costumes from our favorite TV shows? These super-easy costumes come from shows like "Breaking Bad," "Scandal," and "The Walking Dead." Be sure to click the name of each character for a reference photo!
Walter White — "Breaking Bad"
- Porkpie hat
- Packet of blue rock candy
- Blatant disregard for everyone around you
I, like pretty much everyone else, am a huge fan of "Game of Thrones." My favorite show, "Parks and Rec," makes gratuitous references to it (especially Ben, who is crazy-obsessed with it) and it's all over the place. This week a "Game of Thrones" meets "FRIENDS" mash-up made its rounds on the internet. Check it out, along with a "Star Wars" tribute and "Parks and Rec" references to the show! (Game of Thrones spoilers ahead... obviously.)
While I liked "FRIENDS," the show wasn't exactly known for it's deep, riveting plot lines but rather, it's fun, light-hearted moments. "Game of Thrones" is the complete opposite. The show is all about the serious (it loves death and misfortune). So imagining "Game of Thrones" as an awesomely-'90s sitcom is fun.
