the 80s are todays 50s

white house

when i think of the 50s i think of black and white films
elvis, chuck berry, bill haley
happy days
’55 Chevys

and for those of us who remember the 80s it was totally different
bright colors, mtv, popped collars
duran duran, thriller, AC/DC
miami vice

1955 was 30 years before 1985

1985 is pretty close to 30 years before now

do we really look at the 80s as people looked at the 50s

other than apple products and the web
(we’re definitely more technically advanced)
but are we thinking differently 30 years later?

not the motion of the minutia
but the actual creative process?

im not so sure i am.

i see pinterest and im all yawn.
i hear this new dance music dj stuff and im like thumbs down.
when did the Big Bang Theory take over my channel guide?

but im wondering am i actually letting my brain go with the flow
or am i stopping it out of fear and caution.

today i just listened to as much new music as i could on Rdio.

i gave Odd Future a second chance and the parson red heads.

i probably wasted a lot of time doing it.

but if the body isnt being exercised, the brain should.
