The 80's Baby is finally feeling old. The 90's Babies have me under pressure. I asked my 12 year old nephew (5/7/96!!!) what he wanted for his birthday and he said "The black and blue Fusion 5's and GTA 4". I had no idea what the Fusion 5's were so I ask for clarification. "They're the Jordan's and Air Forces mixed together, Uncle Jesse".
Now I really feel like an asshole. A new pair of Jordans and I don't know about them. So I decide to do my research in Soho. I's goes into Transit on Broadway + Bond. Run down the steps and face to face with racks and racks of kicks.
I ask the clerk "do you have the Fusion 5's?". He points to the sneaker in disbelief and utter disgust I would ask him a question like that. I mutter out "size 11", get my kicks and head over to Game Stop to pick up Grand Theft Auto 4.
This process is a lot easier. I see the ads everywhere so I'm up on it, even though I don't really play video games. He gets his gifts and seems content until I get the call:
"Hey Uncle Jesse. Love the sneakers. Thank you! But I only have a PS2 and GTA4 is PS3. So I gotta wait until I get this system. Thanks tho"
He said it like a seeing eye test. P-S-2-G-T-A-4-P-S-3. now I gotta splurge on a PS3. Life and times of a future old head. But I'm not going (old) without a fight. Going to hire a bunch of 90s babies next week to keep me aware. I refuse to be blind sided again!
INTERESTING 90s BABIES FACTS: 1. They don't remember Jordan playing on the Bulls, but they want every pair 2. Lil' Wayne is their god. Jay-Z who? Nas is that old school guy right? They like Lupe. Jeezy is their Biggie. My prophecy (XXL, 2006) came true minus T.I.P. (They don't really care for him that much either). 3. TV? Why? 90's Babies can watch everything on YouTube and they're favorite websites
This is an unstoppable generation. Be afraid...old head.
