    Mrs Jong said the same thing recently. Too many choices is definitely an obstacle, but even back in the late 60s the majority of popular artists pretty much ALL kicked out protest songs with similar messages. If today's artists showed similar unity and dedication to common causes their messages would be a lot more effective.. like they were at shutting down Vietnam.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    I wasn't there in the 60s but I've talked to my parents and other boomers a bunch about this lately as I find it interesting. Here is my take.

    One, I don't think society was as unified as people think a generation OK. I think that even protest was mainstreamed and alternate opinions to alternate opinions were repressed. People were no more or less happy. This is wear punk music came from.

    Two, the idea that anytime of protest or change is anything other than organic and a collection of individual thoughts and ideas is bullshit. Despite the suck that is media, government and whatever old school backwards institution you want to throw under the bus. We, the people, need to take more of the blame. Society is characterized by a bunch of do nothing finger pointers, myself included (I do a little). It is always what everybody else should do/change but none of us want to take the pain. Will all bitch but life is comfortable enough that we don't want to rock the apple cart. There is some Floyd/Orwell in there somewhere but I'm too lazy to figure it out.

    Wood or something else? I just found some of my carving tools in my parent's garage.

    Who was the mag who did sketch TRs? And I think did some Hestra ads

    Linoleum laminated to wood, i find it works better for smaller works with finer detail.
    If I was working on something that was larger scale, wood with really clean grain would have worked well too.

    All I know is kids these days listen to some real gentle happy music. RnR and metal are dying quick, as is angry music in general.

    It's like they are all happy or something, it's weird.

    ...and the boys dress like my sister did in Jr. High. All the old people ask if he/she is gay? I think they are on some drugs we don't know about.

    Very cool. I never did anything significant in wood, just synthetic materials.

    Found the sketch TR, it was telehoar https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...d.php?t=122163

    Gen Xers had it so good. Coming of age in the 80s and 90s was great.

    Not a care in the world.

    2 Live Crew, Run DMC, Metallica, Eazy-E. Then Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam. Then Biggie, 2-Pac, Wu-Tang Clan..... shit I could go on forever.

    Gulf War 1 was a cake walk, when airplanes were hijacked they landed, New Coke and Crystal Pepsi came and went. The riots were ugly.

    No wonder we have no cares.

    Millennials grew up post 9/11. Different world. People getting heads sawed off and posted on the internet. They care more about stuff. Its a good thing.

    The millennials empathy will be a saving grace on society and we cant get them into power soon enough.

    What generation has the most conspiracy theorists? That is my major road block to progress. The excuse that some fabricated story created by a talk radio and/or video analyst or celebrity is more important than actual facts drives me crazy. Post 9/11 anti government propaganda has just grown and grown which led us to agent orange.

    What generation is to blame?

    Where do bands like Joy Division, The Cure and Death Cab fit in? Is it "Alternative" for girls that wore all black and were in Drama Club back in highschool or is it totally relevant? Do kids like it?

    Pumpkins and Pixies? I like where this thread is going.

    We've got a Gen X thread for that: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...ight=music+90s
    I still call it The Jake.

    Apparently you never saw rotten.com or 4chan back in the day. There's always been awful shit on the internet if you're willing to watch it.

    The problem with millennial it its feigned empathy. They speak a language of acceptance and join parades/protests publicly and then do the same shit that the gen-xers do in private only using that "empathy" when it suits them ( for an insta post or clout). Its like their fear flower children.

    I guess if you were a friggin nerd back then, using computers in the 80s and early 90s was unheard of except for word processing for most kids.

    Wasnt on the front page of CNN

    I want to know what you are saying and I almost do but I don't. What is the same shit that Xers do. What I see is a society full of people that lack the tools to have basic face to face interactions with each other. Guess what, everyone is doing it. It is not generationally specific. I've been putting a study on this lately, every characteristic that society wants to place on Millenials can be places on every other generation.
