The Weekend Five: Signs That It’s 2012

Although some of us might still accidentally write “2011” next to today’s date, there’s no denying that 2012 is here. All end-of-the-world jokes aside, our entrance into the year 2012 allows for brand new opportunities and advances that we’ve never seen in any other year. Of course, with the passage of time, we begin to forget some pop culture of the past, and become less and less aware of the technological struggles we once faced. That’s why this week’s Weekend Five pokes fun at our brand new year. Enjoy, and feel free to add your own observations in the comments section!

4. Even though you own Beauty and the Beast on VHS, you’re still tempted to go see it in 3D now that it’s back in theaters with every other movie from your childhood.

5. Several of your classmates argue that email is not a quick enough form of communication.
