i'm so happy that i am not "growing up" right now.  was there a cultural wasteland as big as the one going on right now in the mid 80s to mid 90s?  maybe i'm just biased having been in high school and college during that timeframe, but it seems to me that there was nowhere near the level of publicized garbage that there is currently.  maybe i'm wrong though.  the 80s was marred by a lot of one-hit wonders and bad metal.  none of this is to say that there are not a lot of great bands out now, but precious few of them receive much media coverage.  it's all pop tarts and all money all the time.

Heh... every generation is characterized by an overwhelming pop-cultural wasteland, but also by ways to escape it for something better for the truly resourceful.  We tend to look at the past as better because only the better stuff filters through time, while the crap remains buried.

the commercialization of the internet in the late 1990s has only helped to strengthen the group-mentality that this current teenage generation is a part of.  it's far worse than before.  sure, we can buy our 930 club tickets from our home now, but at what cost to society!?

I'm sorry but that's ridiculous.  Teenagers have been acting like herd following Nazi apparatchniks since the beginning of history.  It has nothing to do with the Internet.
 
 Go see "The Breakfast Club" immediately!  And then go see "Lord of the Flies."
