Default Nostalgia my a@S

Some of you peons love to throw the word 'nostalgic' as an insult. No matter what points we make, that's the crutch that some of you rely on when in doubt. And the rest of the minions follow suit LOLing to the comment.

But as evidence that some of us aren't nostalgic for the sake of not letting go of the past, I will say this:

Current television>>>> past eras

By current I mean new generation 2K on.

I'll even take it a step further….

Movies today>>> past eras

I'm looking forward to a debate with fellow old timers.

Peace out

Yes no doubt, that can be said about everything.

But what I mean is, the overall quality>>>

Yes, that's including all the reality tv as well. There was tons of shitty shows back then, worse than reality tv. The problem is, there's more options, more channels so of course it's gonna appear like there's more.

I always like to compare their equals or things on the same level… ie

The best vs the best
The average vs the average
The poor with the poor

Today's tv shows ends up winning overall.

Music not so much.

without knowing too much about it I say TV shows yes but movies no.
they are way better done in terms of special effects but lack depth.

what do you mean by music?
I don't think anybody can **** with the Mozarts, Chopins and Beethovens of the world.

when u only like one pretty specific sound/style/era of a genre u aren't actually into that genre. it's the same as only watching baseball and then trying to say or pretend u fck with all sports. it doesn't work.

Curb and AD would like to have a word with you.

Also, was there a show as good as Daily Show wtih Jon Stewart in the 90s? if one wants to go back at satirical news analysis I guess it would be the Smothers Brothers. SNL only has a small segment and even they've had their ups and downs.

The 90s was edgy and groundbreaking I'll give you that.

But the 2K era is an evolution of that.

90s had LIving Color, 2k era had Chapelle Show… smarter funnier, that's just an example.

Why do you care? If someone likes something different than you, do you feel obligated to prove them that the things you like >>> things they like?

Movies I thought about before posting what I did, but there was plenty of bad films back then too.

Like I mentioned, I like to compare apples to apples.

I'm not gonna compare 'No Country for Old Men' to 'Speed'.

I'm gonna compare 'Speed' to 'Transporter' or some other high grossing action film. In this case, Transporter ends up winning.

That's basically what I did with Ja Rule. I compared a pop/club singing rapper to somebody else in a similar mode.

Apples to Apples

People were saying Drake was original cause he sang and rapped, cause he talked about his emotions and females and shit, so I brought up their 90 counterparts Ja Rule and Pm Dawn.

Apples to apples

I didn't compare Gucci Mane to Nas and shit.
