So it's June Already Then...

Posted on 2009/06/03 23:13:12 (June 2009).

[Monday 1st June]
Well we're almost half the way through 2009 already then! The other day it occurred to me this meant we only have just over half a year left of this decade - the rather non descript "noughties". It got me wondering how it'll be characterised in hindsight - in terms of things like music, fashion, technology etc. At the risk of sounding like a typical "nostalgia isn't as good as it used to be" type comment, it seems a bit hard to imagine people looking back on this decade with the same sort of affection or fascination that the 60s or 70s still seem to hold.

That said, think about the 80s - now they were shit weren't they? I'm already convinced this decade is vastly superior to that pitiful-dearth-of-anything-of-any-real-merit that was cruelly thrust upon us between 1979 and 1990.

That aside, not much to report on today.
