Nostalgia's Tightening Grip On Popular Culture
The only music I listen to these days is primarily pop and hip hop hits from the late '00s and early 2010s.
I'm not really impressed with anything new that's been put out recently.
It's not just music for me - this lack of enthusiasm for content also extends to movies, gaming, television shows, and other mediums of popular content.
Nothing is new. Everything is old.
The best example of this is Disney+. Disney's new streaming platform recently launched. While that is great news, deep down, I'm not interested because all the content they offer is from my childhood to my late teenage years.
I don't need to see all of that stuff again.
I want new experiences, new stories, new tales to be told to me. I want to listen to new songs that bring a bold, novel sound that this era's listeners haven't heard yet.
I have more to add on this tomorrow, but the discontent I feel from current media is driving me to make sure that what I create, whether it's through writing and film, brings something new to the table.
