There's been a lot of DX references lately on TV. Anyway, I was at Hot Topic and saw that the WWE has issued a new DX t-shirt.

Don't know if it hints at something bigger or it's just retro merch, but thought I'd mention it.

Sweet, Hot Topic getting more WWE Retro. Sweet...I'm thinking about that one because I never was able to obtain any of the orginals. Hmm...cool.

Oh, my god. The cool kids have decided that pro wrestling (from ten years ago when it was hot, anyway) is so uncool that it is cool. Good christ. I can't decide whether to laugh or to puke.

Let me see if I've got this right. Hot Topic are selling bootlegged WWE shirts both nationally and INTERNATIONALLY?

That's an...interesting business move, I guess.

I seen some guy the other day with an nWo wolfpac toy license plate in his back window, seemed horribly tacky to me, and I am about as un-vouge as you get.

As does this, maybe subconsciously I don't want to admit I'm not a spring chicken anymore, but I'm not quite ready to pass the bacon down the assembly line from "over" to "retro-cool"

Incidentally, the last members of "Generation X" are now 25 at the youngest, depending on your definition of the term. Good examples of Gen-Xers would be the embarrassingly balding family man Shawn Michaels and the leathery, Motorhead-worshipping Triple H. Not exactly the kind of concept I'd imagine would appeal to the faux-punk teens targeted by Hot Topic.

Eh, I don't know about that...I'm positive they're older. I'm 24 and was always considered far removed from Generation X, so I doubt a 25-year-old could be considered a "Gen-Xer." I mean, when I was in my early teens, Gen-Xers were considered to be the college crowd at the time and people in their twenties.

While the exact dates bounding this age demographic are highly debated, those born from the 1960s to the early 1980s are generally agreed-upon as possible members of this group. The term is used in demography, the social sciences, and marketing, though it is most often used in popular culture. The generation's influence over pop culture began in the 1980s and has only grown in the 1990s and 2000s.
Generation X

It can be debated more Deputy Marshall on the year range. I guess this a term the folks a Webster wouldn't be able to help to many people on.

But it was cool when they were 6-15 years old. That makes it cool again for the 16-25 year-olds to own on a t-shirt. It's nostalgia. It's no different from the WWE selling an "Old-School" shirt with the modified version of their 80s logo on it.

I base the 25-at-the-youngest thing on an influential book by Neil Howe and William Strauss called 13th Gen. Though the book came out shortly before Douglas Coupland's coinage of "Generation X" really gained widespread currency, its 13th Generation and Coupland's Generation X are considered by sociologists to be basically synonymous. Howe and Strauss define their generation as the people born between 1961 and 1981, which would make them 25 through 45 today. Of course, a generation has to run 15 years at the very least, thus making it possible that you, Deputy Marshall, could have been part of the same generation as college kids when you were in your early teens.

I'm only a few years older than you, and I reluctantly admit I'm probably part of Generation X, which I would probably define as "anyone part of MTV's target audience back when MTV wouldn't stop talking about Generation X." And I was definitely watching back then, so there you go.

That shirt is amazing.

Reading up on it, I was surprised to find that the consensus does seem to be those that are currently 25 and up. I just remember watching MTV when I was young and seeing the whole "Gen X" thing as something marketed towards an older crowd. It looks like I'm right on the brink with Gen-X and Generation Y (Wikipedia.org).

Going back to the topic, though...the dX shirt confuses me. "Protected by D-Generation X"? What's that a reference to?

Yeah, they aren't exactly known for being masters of the triple entendre.

I really hope her arm is fake, because fitness model and steroids or not, Trish should not be able to build better forearms than me.

There's gotta be a catch to that Trish shirt. It's not like the WWE to print a great shirt like that, without at least trying to put another "witty" catchphrase on the back to ruin it.

As it stands, I'm actually seriously tempted to order that for my girlfriend.

The catch is that "let's do it" means "let's have sex."
