And yet, the last decade and this one are continuing to do exactly that, only instead of trying to relive glory days of the past and look hopefully toward the future, they fearfully try to avoid both the past and future. Maybe it's time for a new awakening, where people didn't ***** about things not being "new" and "fresh" and actually did stuff... you know, like the 18th and 19th centuries, perhaps recapturing the latter 20th century's obsession with space travel and colonization with current discoveries and technologies that do, in fact, make the project possible (if not entirely practical for the moment).J0057Mith said:So in other words to sum up the video... the nineties were... cultural doldrums!
People got bored and tried a little do-over of 70's and 80's things, or made something new-but crappy without any inspiration.
Good point Bob, thanks for the video.
The word that came to my mind to sum up the 90s was "meh", but I think your assessment is better. It's like that entire decade was spent simply waiting for the future to arrive.Aiddon said:so the 90s were a decade that had an identity crisis like a teenager to trying to find themselves. Sounds about right
I'm not sure I'd call a time that dedicated itself to speculation & advancement a "vacuum"DVS BSTrD said:Well I don't think it sucked, but it was definitely a vacuum.
And think people were calling you out on the 90's thing precisely because they knew it was personal for you.
