Sorry, I knew it was Martin75, not you... I was just was trying to be concise in a one-post-addresses-all sense, and wasn't clear... as usual!
I feel the same way about the 70's - 80's and fear (with WTbengineer) that I am just like all the other anachronisms stuck in their prime ... but
dangit, objectively, the music from that period was indeed more innovative... and lately, it all seems rehashed and derivative.
Really, "rap" and hip hop are the only new things since that era... and it started then, anyway.
Same with fashion... nothing wildly new.
I think it has to do with cheap mass communication... we've seen it all. The previous generations showed greater change in tech, art and fashion in a
smaller time period... but we've hit a bit of a wall and have stayed pretty steady for a few decades.
I can't wait to be truly future-shocked!
