Had a streak of icy cold fear running down my body -- I discovered I have been listening to Joy Division and actually I liked it.
Have I just crossed a threshold in my life?
Are their any other signs I should be on the look out for? Please god not Dolly Parton...
You forget the correct spelling of "you're."
- didn't forget - didn't see! Dyslexic here (I even have to google that word every time!)mugwart
- no it's age ;)monospaced
- Did I just read someone equating Joy Division to Dolly Parton?CyBrainX
liking Joy Division makes you old?
- Think so. Never liked them before and I'm a bit emo (as the kids call it!)mugwart
- not old, that just makes you late to the party. ;)sea_sea
- Old would be more like liking the latest New Order album, released when the band members are in their 60syuekit
i feel this with the next gen prodigy fans.mugwart
- Liking Joy Division should have happened decades ago. Likening them to Dolly Parton might be a sign of age, or insanity.CyBrainX

True story: I live in an old neighbourhood, the road out front is like a 100yr cobblestone, looks great, loved it but in recent years been destroyed by city trucks and it's like driving off road now, all earthquaked and messed up. A year ago city said we're re-paving, I was happy. They are right now re-paving the block below us, beside us and adjacent. Talked to a crew guy the other day who informed me that my street has to be delayed until next year now because they "forgot to do some water connections" on my street. I'm pretty sure I'm furious about this...
