  • Kevin Bacon has a Message About the ’80s for Millennials

    ’80s megahunk, Kevin Bacon doesn’t think anyone born after 1985 knows about real world hardships. In a 2 minute rant done at SXSW by Mashable, Bacon talks about all the complications that came with being caught up in the tough decade that was the 1980s. Bacon misuses some social lingo and complains about the only app he had was a rubiks cube, but Bacon’s money line comes from talking about the cold war, “You think Russia’s a threat now?” he asks. In the ’80s, “you couldn’t even skateboard to Blockbuster without getting nuked.” Classic Bacon. )

      App and software development firm Chaotic Moon Studios has recently moved into a new office space in downtown Austin. The building CMS is housed in is over thee hundred-years-old located in downtown Austin.
