The Man Has a Point

Me: These billboards are starting to freak me out. It's like Atlantic City is where all the bands we grew up with go to die.

Al: Yeah, all the twentysomethings are probably like, "George Thoroughgood? Who's that???"

Lori: I know! Look, there's one for Aerosmith and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I remember doing modern dance to "I Love Rock and Roll" in my 8th grade gym class. Who knew she was still around?

Al: I remember driving to the shore with my parents when I was a kid, and there'd be all these billboards for Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett, and I'd be all, "who'd want to see Tony Bennett?" Now I get it: they were catering to the middle-aged folks looking to relive their youth...and now we're the middle-aged folks they're trying to lure.

Lori: Oh my god, you're right.

Al: I mean, tell me Pat Benatar isn't the Liza Minelli of our generation.
