@slaw I’m waiting for your op/review with baited breath.
@tomic601 & @beske (Brian, AG won’t let me @ your handle). My VMP Dead Anthology arrived this morning. It’s a really nicely done package at every level. But so, I listened to the aforementioned associated podcast and I’m completely nonplussed by that 24 year old.
And generally, I’ve decided that this endless discussing and promoting of everything to do with records and stereos that I expose myself to has, although informative particularly with respect to new music and music discovery, been a net detriment to my enjoyment of music and I just have to cut back on the YouTube, and the podcasts, and the blogs and the email and the web stuff. I mean, I know what I like. Need to trust my own perspectives and just enjoy the music.
It’s great if some millennials catch on to the music I like but I have to admit that I really can’t stand to listen to them talk about it.
So, my reaction to the young is different I think. I think I’m glad for the reminder of my age. And I don’t envy the young. If music stands as symbol of a culture, the world they inhabit seems sad and thin in comparison to depth and richness of the culture in our time.
