Ja Rule is definitely > Drake. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrgtjkHugoY

Rap was overall better in the 90's and early 2000's, but I personally like J Cole even more than someone like Biggie, and almost as much as Nas and Pac.

Miley Cyrus > Elvis Presley. jk

Adults with jobs have lesser time to play video game for hours.

Hardcore gamers still get plenty of difficult games on PC and in great numbers too so both type of gamers have a choice.

The only thing that was way better in the past was music and i don't think any one will disagree about that.
TV is definitely better if you know what to watch and movies are a little worse.

if you're talking about popular movies you're out your damn mind.

Maybe indie shit, but I dunno. Movies are so bad now.

The problem is everyone wants to have a hipster mentality so they "sound smarter". They'll always so older or obscure forms of whatever you're talking about is better so they sound like they have more knowledge past the current whatever that's popular. At the same time however they'll sometimes do it to fit in or don't "sound dumb". I mean lets be serious here, most people say Tupac is the greatest rapper because that's what they're told and it's the normal opinion, not because they actually think he is. They don't want to "sound dumb" saying what they actually think.

you gotta be joking in terms of movies. if anything, other than indy and international, hollywood has been in decline for decades. i have rarely seen a bigger collection of steaming horse shit than modern american movies.


but i'll give you television, i'll give you eyes of blue... but don't forget-- people here seem to think some of the greatest masterpieces of TV didn't exist because it happened before they were children.

i love lucy
all in the family
faulty towers
twin peaks
roots
shogun
smothers brothers
kids in the hall

etc etc

AFAIK all came BEFORE seinfeld.

ah, okay, ty. i also edited out deadwood for the same reason, but would have loved to have listed it.


and the wonder years... nice show... groundbreaking even... but just a little too sappy and formulaic at times.


if the simpsons had wrapped up after about 6 - 7 seasons, it would have made the list, too, since it technically started before seinfeld.


also tonnes of great PBS stuff, like nova and such. 60 minutes used to be pretty good too, along with washington week and some others....

I'm looking forward to a debate with fellow old timers.
how about you get your lazy ass together, dude?

don't be starting such topics and then bailing when you hear the ice-cream man music playing in your neighborhood.

andgar-nine-twenty-three... a solid bro, or a clown who needs his makeup freshened? either way, i'll pay.

Been too tired and lazy.

It was fun to do at the moment cause I was bored and wanted to kill time. It riled up people (not trolling, just making things interestng).

I'm not too strongly opinionated on for or against, cause I agree with the counter argument. I may come back and revisit this and counter claims for the hell of it later on (if I'm in the mood). I usuall do that tho with most of my posts, I'll entertain them for a while then get tired or bored, move on to somethign else.

But I'm sure it helped kill time for some of you, which is what I was trying to do

well played, whoever you are.
