Millennials - the ideal term for Millennium fans?

Recommended Posts

I think the term 'Millennials' is the ideal name for referring to fans of Millennium. Who's with me? It's either that or Millennium-philes. Now that's just awful. How about Generation MM? I just think Millennials is awesome. Labels are for gifts, not people.

Sorry, I disagree.  My problem is because of the Millennial generation, who are called "Millennials."  I personally believe "The Millennium Group" is still the best, after all, "This Is Who We Are."  And I can only assume t-shirts are already available somewhere, but I couldn't find them in a quick search, so maybe no one has done it yet.  I did find a site "The Real Millennium Group" selling products of various designs, t-shirts, mugs, pillows, etc.  We could have shirts made with an Ouroboros, and underneath have the forum URL.  Pricing is very affordable, and sure a lot of the difference would depend on the quality of the shirt.  I personally am already designated a "Baby Boomer," but would wear a Millennium Group t-shirt proudly.  We certainly have the members with artistic ability to create a simple design.  Ouroborus with "The Millennium Group" in the middle and the web address below, or both sites (main & forums).  The shirt would look nice to me with, "This Is Who We Are" above the  :ouroborous:.  Simple, but to the point.

Quote

In October 2004, researchers Neil Howe and William Strauss called Millennials "the next great generation," which is funny. They define the group as "as those born in 1982 and approximately the 20 years thereafter." In 2012, they affixed the end point as 2004.

And with no designation after 2004.

Per The Atlantic regarding Millennials ~

Quote

Your official demarcation of generational boundaries

We identified six different generations, and labeled their eras.

Greatest Generation. These are the people that fought and died in World War II for our freedom, which we appreciate. But it's a little over-the-top as far as names go, isn't it? Tom Brokaw made the name up and of course everyone loved it. What, you're going to argue with your grandfather that he isn't in the greatest generation? The generation ended when the war ended.

Baby Boomers. This is the agreed-upon generation that falls within DiPrete's punctuated timeframe. It began when the Greatest Generation got home and started having sex with everyone; it ended when having sex with everyone was made easier with The Pill.

Generation X. George Masnick, of the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies puts this generation in the timeframe of 1965 to 1984, in part because it's a neat 20-year period. He also calls it the "baby bust," mocking "[p]undits on Madison Avenue and in the media" that call it Generation X. Ha ha, tough luck.

Generation Y. Masnick addresses this group, too, putting it "anywhere from the mid-1970s when the oldest were born to the mid-2000s when the youngest were." But mostly Generation Y is a made-up generation when it became obvious that young kids didn't really fit with the cool Generation X aesthetic but not enough of them had been born to make a new generation designation. NOTE: Generation Y is a fake, made-up thing. Do not worry about it.

Millennials. In October 2004, researchers Neil Howe and William Strauss called Millennials "the next great generation," which is funny. They define the group as "as those born in 1982 and approximately the 20 years thereafter." In 2012, they affixed the end point as 2004.

TBD. But that means that kids born in the last 10 years lack a designation. They are not Millennials. Earlier this month, Pew Research asked people what the group should be called and offered some terrible ideas. In other words, this is the new Generation Y. We'll figure out what they're called in the future.

There's a chart on the site, but it wouldn't post since it's a png, so I saved it and changed it to JPEG in Paint.

Earthnut, i understand your point and thats what I was thinking because people have a bad opinion of Millennials , and it is a little disappointing that people are angry with the generation! I'd also like to see the website you were speaking of that had all the Merchandise! And I like your idea about the shirts! You should definitely see what we can do to make it happen!

BB, people have a bad opinion because most of the time Millennials seem stupid and uneducated.  They aren't taught cursive, phonics or regular math, they don't know how to count change back, and rarely get their noses out of their electronic devices, for without them they seem helpless.  So glad my kids are Generation X, and I am very proud of them.  Also glad Generation Y is fake.  It made no sense.

There wasn't one particular site, I just Googled "custom t-shirts" and it brought up a bunch with very affordable prices.  As I said, to me it depends on the quality of the t-shirt, and I for one don't want to buy one that shrinks too much after the first wash and I can no longer wear it.  I'd rather spend a little more for the quality, and of course pick a place with a 4-5 star rating.

There used to be so much fake cafepress-style MM stuff on safe, it was unreal. Some of it okay, not all bad, but you still ended up with people being taken in, myself included once, thinking it was the genuine article. Sad to learn it's still available. I was elated to get a MM clock off Ebay once, only to be gutted when it arrived to be a cheap $1 marketing clock with a MM sticker attached. I hate the thought of people getting taken advantage of. There's such a huge difference in quality and value between promotional mugs and t-shirts and the original articles, like the the officially licensed Millennium calendars released by Fox, or the genuine Millennium watches and mugs that Meghan G. reportedly had made for the main people, or the official cast/crew jackets. However, usually the fans miss out because the items get snapped up so fast by traders, who set ridiculous prices.

I have seriously thought a few times about asking the rather awesome Barry @ENGINECOMICS to design some T-shirts for TIWWA or the website, like he did way back when for the Back To Frank Black campaign. You may remember them, we used to promote them here way back when, they were so good. In fact I wish I'd had some funds to buy some at the time when I was still working. Not only did Barry absolutely nail the t-shirt designs, they were cleverly designed so that you'd immediately get the MM reference but so as not to fall foul of Fox's copyright lawyers. Reminds me of the days way back, when they used to go around taking whole fan sites down.

Can the shirt say "This Is Who We Are" with the Ouroboros?   Surely the quote isn't copyrighted and as often as we see the Ouro, I doubt if it is.  I would love to have a MLM t-shirt.  Please contact Barry.  Maybe he still has the designs.  I don't care how much it is, I will save for it.

I may have, but off hand, I don't remember seeing the previous designs and have been here for many years.  Pretty sure Graham can get in touch with Baz (Barry) since his websites are still active, and they both still live in the UK, to the best of my knowledge.  Go to his page and then his sites to see his awesome art.  Here's his profile link for TIWWA ~

Found a few images related to the show.

MILLENNIUM by sobreiroFrank Black marked by MatthewIngles

Fear the most by MatthewInglesFrank Black by MatthewIngles    Love this last one in front of a cross.

 

Scrolled forever on the ancient Ouroboros symbol pages.

Usually always it is depicted as a snake, and this image blew me away...wolves.

OMG...OMG

I could spend hours on his pages.  Go Graham, so excited about getting a shirt.
