The Rants and Raves of a "Boomer"

Hey guys, I hope you don't mind but I had to share this article from Nolan Dalla I found. It's very funny and probably shouldn't be taken too seriously.

If You're Under 25, Your Music is Fucking Garbage - Nolan Dalla

The Rants and Raves of a "Boomer"

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

Bob Dylan - "The Times they are A-Changin'" (1963)

As some of you know, this shit drives me nuts. I claim to be just too young to be a boomer, but who am I kidding. Guys like this make the rest of us look like idiots.

Everything new is bad! Everything old is good!

Fuck, I hate that shit.

I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now where were we...the important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time.

The Rants and Raves of a "Boomer"

You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in Zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen J. D. Rockefeller flying by. So I run out of the house with a big washtub and, where are you going?...Anyway, about my washtub. I just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking bird. We'd always have walking bird on Thanksgiving with all the trimmings: cranberries, injun eyes, and yams stuffed with gunpowder. Then we'd all watch football, which in those days was called baseball.

This article sums up why I stopped, for the most part, posting at the Steve Hoffman music forums.

You, sir, are suddenly hilarious. You have won my day with that story.

Best comment from that page...

Fancy gadgets are not ruining modern music. What you see is a combination of Sturgeon’s Law and survival bias. 90% of everything is crap. Old stuff is better because only the good stuff survives.
