one of the things about people from generations before mine, even from the generation just before mine, is that sometimes they’ll mention a book or a song & say, with much self-satisfaction, “That was before your time.” it pisses me off because it doesn’t make sense— time isn’t a vacuum, it’s a continuum. the past and things of the past don’t just evaporate, not leaving a trace. we still listen to music from decades past, still read books from hundreds of years ago… they still exist. they still are. so in trying to sound more knowledgeable and worldly, older generations just end up sounding like pompous idiots.
