I dont think liking that era of music automaticlly destines you to be a hippie. Not sure what catagory I would have wanted to be placed in if I did live in those times. Just the general unapproval of the music and the trends that were starting to evolve along with that are what seems exciting. Not to pumped about the fashion of back then but if i didnt know any different then who knows. I still see movies that portray those times and how what has become second to us was unspeakable then. Ive lived through a war yes and seeing the twin towers fall was not something you really cherish or want to remember. More like one of..well the worst tradgedy in U.S. history. Other than some the moments witnessed in sports and a couple other small issues. I dont find anything worth while or spectacular from this day in age. Like it or not were stuck living in it so I guess make the best of it.

^ Ummmm...

We are kind of the generation(not sure exactly how old you are, but you sound under 25) that gets to live through one of the most important technological advances of all time AKA THE INTERNET. IMO this is the best time to be alive, it's a very exciting time, because how people interract socially is changing all the time, and we get to be a part of that.

Yeah but honestly I could care less. It just doesnt strike me as all that exciting. I mean its certainly amazing and convenient at times. But I could live without it with ease. For that matter computers, cell phones, etc etc. I was more so talking of the unacceptable behavior and music trends. That back then were not embraced and very much were despised by the majority. Rock and Roll being looked at as Satans lingo and things of that nature. The over all level of anything being shocking is a thing of the past. Nothing is really suprising anymore. Even technology for that matter.

I thought about that often since I tend to listen to more of older music than Top 40 that's out now. I would have to say 'no.' I love British Rock everything from the Shadows to the Smiths, (and then it tails off for me a few groups here and there) but if I was born fifty years earlier or even fifty years ago I don't think I would have the opportunity to know what I know now. I talk to my uncles about music and they live during that time but they are limited to what was available on 45s, LPs and radio (to be honest they know stuff I don't know and I know stuff they don't know.) They are both fine musicians but they are not music collectors. I think from the perspective of audiophile the 70's beats all everything was analog from the instruments to recording to sound reproduction and amplification, that's if you don't mind a little hissing and scratching. But from the standpoint of a music collector I think the transition period from the age of CDs to the audio-files (mp3s and i-tunes) is the best, in the present is there is still the best of both world, vinyl, CDs and audio-files, who knows what the future may bring some of those formats could be lost.

I bet if you were young in the 1960's you would be the type of person who would say, "Man, I wish I was born in the 1910's so I could live through the 20's." or something like that. You're so friggen hard to please, this decade was the ****.

That's how the Folk Revivalist felt during the late 50's early 60's, in a way that's how they found Mississippi John Hurt still living (circa early 60's) around Avalon Mississippi, while at that time the rest of the country thought he passed away there was this one guy who wished he was born in the 10's and set out on a mission to find him and he did! 20's Country Blues - ya can't knock it.

Uhhh..no. There stands good reason why I chose the year I did, and not any other year. Because it seems to have been more exciting in many different ways. Im glad you think this decade was awesome but...guess what...I know I was there. Its not that exciting. Neither would living in 1910's or 1920's for that matter. Im glad your able to predict what I would want if in theory if I was in fact living in the 1960's. Nothing like assumption to be the foundation of someones own moronic fact.
