Keeping vintage traditions alive...

#1
I was undertaking the unusual task of sorting out the hoards of crap I keep stuffed in my cupboards this week and came across a CD of War of the Worlds that I had forgotten about.

My son asked what it was and I duly went into reminisent mode explaining to him how my father used to play his double LP of this on Saturdays when we were all on block duties cleaning our rooms etc. In my sentimental excitement I offered to play it for him and he agreed.

Now I cannot get it off the fucking CD player. As I type, he is in the downstairs bathroom having a soak with disc 1 on full and totally loving it. (I'm not though, because the CD player is in the kitchen and that's where I am sat!! - ULLA! Fuck off!)

However, it's made me think about how old school things get passed on down the "ages" and I am impressed at the impact those things can still have on a new generation, who would otherwise remain blissfully unaware of it's existence.

Anyone else passing shit onto their kids that would otherwise be relegated into history? If so, what?

When Rupert reached the age of 14 and hadnt set fire to a dog, impaled a cat up the bottom on a bamboo cane or raped a poor persons child I lost interest. He went to Oxford and did quite well. Now he is in Buenos Aires working for Santander.

This might be a little too "modern" for you old folk, but my kid sister informed me the other day that she was "totally loving the Stereophonics". So I informed her that she was eight the first time I saw them live.

I'm under 35 thanks! Old folk indeed! That said, I think it's a childs mentality to imagine their parents childhood as light years ago. My son frequently asks me if I remember things "you know, when everything was in black and white"...yeah, fucking cheers son!

I've liberated some of my old Barbie dolls from the attic and passed them on to a friends 4 year old.


His parents don't seem to like his new favourite choice of toy though! :)

As I don't have any little JD's I just go around skifting other peoples kids in Tesco and watch them puke everywhere......it's a tradition that should never die out.

I didn't know he'd stuck it under his fucking pillow did I!

And Bozzy; haha, love that, I love gender bending kids, if only to snap their parents. That said, my nipper used to push a pink dolls buggy about til he was 4, much to the anxiety of his father.

Be gone, northern man.

What the fuck do blokes know about kids? It takes you two seconds of pump action to make one and then a lifetime of arsing about while they mature at a much faster rate.

The only good thing about northern dads is that they die earlier than other men, on account on the fact that southern blokes haven't had furring of the arteries from a lifetime overdose of pease pudding and fish lots.
