I was at a friends house and he has a teenager that had the music CRANKED... It annoyed me to NO END. It then hit me like a ton of Bricks.. I used to listen to Black Sabbath like that in the late 70s and early 80s.

I used to LIVE for music.. I cant tell you too much about new music anymore, I cant even REMEMBER the last CD I bought.. my Ipod is full of Tom Waits, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Norah Jones, Bruce Springsteen....

I have crossed over.

Yeah that feeling was awful the first time I had it. Was on the L which stopped at Fullerton (Du Paul University) when two college girls got on and started talking about their furture plans. It was total fantasy of what they expected and what I knew the reality was. I wanted to blurt out:

"You girls don't know what you are talking about."

Not only did I think of them as "girls" (wasn't I just in college a little bit ago?) but that was the first time I felt like I had real life experience under my belt that I could share my wisdom.

Ugh. I'm still trying to accept that I had crossed over from being "with it" to "old."

I was 15 when I first had an experience like this. I just shook my head at the horrible music people were listening to.

I doubt the problem is age related.  I think (and feel free to agree or disagree) that it's an issue of music taste.

If the kid had been, for example, cranking out some Black Sabbath, you probably would have been into it.

One recent quirk about myself I find pretty amusing: I've been branching out into different kinds of music lately, but I'm STILL listening to old music!  For example, I've been getting a bit into the rock/rap thing, but instead of checking out a new group (or simply new albums), I'm listening to Public Enemy and stuff.

So I'm not really listening to new music, I'm just listening to a different genre of old music.

Music back then, IMO, was something almost all of us could listen to.
Seems the only bands these days that can still fill a stadium on their own are the ones that have been around 30 years (Rolling Stones, Chicago, and so on) but the newer ones are having trouble filling up all the seats even when they've got 5 other bands touring with them. (Kristmas Kaos here in Miami, FL for example. KoRn was headling it.)

We're all getting old anyway. You start getting old the day you're born.. I always think about age because I look back and wonder where the hell 1999 went to.. then you watch a movie like Exaclibur or History of the world (both made around 1981) and good movies right? But then you realize, holy shit, they were made TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO!
Just look at Mel Brooks he's like some kind of moving stone-statue these days..

That's life though, we all get old, sooner than later it seems. Just enjoy life while you can right? Pump up some "Live like you were dying" by Tim McGraw or "Days go by" by Keith Urban and if you take the lyrics to heart, it can really wake your life up.. because I wasn't doing much with my life until the live like you were dying lyrics hit me, and now I'm doing just that.

In not so sure, i dont crank music anywhere anymore.. doesnt appeal to me... I start wincing...

I think my two sons are the reason for this though ( 5 and 7 )

I treasure when I have peace and quiet.

One of my students mentioned Flavor Flav (from that show and his commercials) and they asked me who he was and why he was famous.  They had never heard of Public Enemy.  I know that was a while ago, but...  It just isn't right! :cry:

I guess I am old, too.  DAMNIT, I'm not even 30!

I know I've said it before, but my turning point was when I heard a song I listened to in High School on a classic rock station.

Ugh.

My saving grace, however, is that I really can never point back to any time in my past and say I would rather be there than where I am now.  Sure, it was really terrible for a while there (like a year and a half ago), but fortunately things always tend to work out for the better.
