Happy Tuesday

The generation gap between me and my kids became apparent today when we heard Led Zeppelin's Immigrant song on the radio, and my kids said, "That's the song from Shrek!"  I guess, that's all it is to them.

It got me thinking also about Eddie Murphy (who voices Donkey in the movies).  Today, Murphy is known to kids from things like Shrek, Dr. Doolittle and Daddy Daycare. Yet, when I was growing up, Murphy was known for his obscenity-laced, adult themed comedy.  Yes, he had movies like Coming to America, but his SNL stuff and live shows were very adult.

So, it's interesting, I think.

Is there anyone out there you view very differently from your kids?
