I’d been musing on the 80s (as you can tell) and I then found this… I was back with my Speccy playing Manic Miner… The first Speccy game that managed by clever use of interupts to have music whilst things were happening. Anyway, Infidel753 reminded me a while back of this song…
That’s a rockin’ tune and like so much of the ’80s so optimistic, so positive. Or how about this:
Where did it go wrong? When did the new miserableness set-in? And where’s my fucking jet-pack?
It’s what I don’t get about so much contemporary political dialogue. Infidel753′s (he’s blog-rolled) tag-line is “If it’s not fun, what’s the point?”. Can’t we all just lighten-up for a minute? So a load of Greenies think the sky is falling and a load of bearded lunatics want to make 767s fall out of it on the way down. We have coped with worse. I mean the Nazis at least ran some things with competence.
The future is meant to be better and it can be if we just let it be.
