Boomers are Worthless? What the What??

Some crazy people in the media and advertising communities decided that anyone older than 54 is not worthy. Specifically, not worthy for companies who want to introduce–or enforce the image of–the services and products they offer. It sounds like fake news, but it’s been true for decades and it still is today. The Ad Agencies, local and national, only focus on people under 55. Oh, and over 24. Their opinion of what is worthy is if it appeals to thisRead more

I was excited when he replied, “I really like the oldies.” So, I asked him to name some, “Oh you know like Flo Rida, LMFAO, Ne-Yo, Snoop, and early Bieber.” Obviously, an Oldie is not a new song.
