It seems today, everyone has a desired age and place they'd love to be, California in the 70's, Harlem in the 40's, Paris in the 20's or 1890's, the time of the Romans, Greeks, Italy in the 1400's, even Egypt in 3000 B.C; but the problem is, there is no golden age, right now, there's good music, and bad music. Just as there was in 1960. We have diseases cured and diseases we can't cure, there will be pros and cons for every decade. People will surround themselves with art, music, and movies from their desired time scape, but, those days are over, there is no reason for you or anyone else not to love this time, we look at the past through a filter, we forget everything bad, so it seems like it was all wonderful. In 20 years are you going to remember The Jonas Brothers or are you going to remember Gorillaz? People in the future will see this decade as a time when movies and technology grew incredibly fast, when art branched out into places Monet could have never dreamed of, when electronic music was defined, and when independent music blossomed onto the scene.
We should all go out and experience as much as our lives as we possibly can, stay young at heart, drink wine, use candles, have long conversations, get lost in huge cites at night, have fun. Get enough story's collected in your experience so that when you are old, you can reflect on your life and be happy.
