I feel like everything that was good now is just another part of my past. I can't listen to any...and I mean ANY current music right now because it just doesn't seem to be as good as years' past. All of my favorite tv shows and movies and books are just that...memories. I suppose I'm in a funk when it comes to anything current and I'm starting to wonder if there is a reason for that. Have I completely shut myself down since MCR disbanded? Am I too busy comparing what's out today with what they've done? I don't think so. Maybe I'm just sick of all of the change, especially when I feel like it amounts to nothing. I used to think that music-wise I could listen to practically anything. Perhaps that's not true anymore. Now the music that I listen to has to come with a message and inspire a generation, it has to bring comfort to the hurt and wounded, and it has to bring forth a sliver of hope for our future. From what I've seen and heard, country doesn't do that, rap doesn't do that, pop certainly doesn't do that, and rock bands are becoming fewer by the minute. So where does that leave us? I've been waiting to find the next 'great anthem', or a band that will brighten my day that exists now. Yet, it doesn't seem to be in the stars. This is just me ranting, it seems (which is all I seem to do, lol sorry.)
