growing up under postmodernism is knowing all the lyrics to Robin Williams' "Singin in The Oil" from the Robots feature film over 10 years before you hear the original Singin in the Rain

@selontheweb Growing up under postmodernism is having memorised the dialogue of countless Flash animations

@selontheweb Growing up under postmodernism means you mentally associate particular pop hooks with Weird Al lyrics even though you've probably heard the song being spoofed more times than the spoof itself.

@selontheweb Like, I've heard the Weird Al version of "Beat It" by Michael Jackson like, maybe ten times at most? Probably the original more like hundreds of times, between cinema and ads and stuff?
