Signs of Generational Drift

My Gramma stood up and applauded in the theater when Dorothy opened the door in the Wizard of Oz to reveal the start of the 'color' portion of the movie.

My youngest cousins type "epic fail, lolz" to the special effects in the Wizard of Oz.

Toto is the best actor in that movie. Seriously, watch that movie and notice how often Toto takes perfect direction or perfectly frames the principals with his movements.

I make a zine that I distribute around my college campus and I was wondering if I could use this post in an article, me and my friends are always talking about how as children the special effects in movies were wonderful and when we look back now they look fake. So I was wondering if I could include the comment you made about your grandmother in an article about that. I would credit the quote to you and put in a shout out to your blog, probably a couple. It is a free zine, we just hand it out on campus.
Thank you
