Is it just me or is everything from back way when better?

Men used to be able to cry. Porno was not easily, openly considered for all a morale thing. Now no one can say porno is immorale. It is like a paradox, Way more divorces today and care free sex.

The cartoons, like tom and jerry are bloody brilliant. Movies are actually classic back then ranging from maybe up to the early 80's...

I remember such a better world even so young as I was.The 90's , everything is going down hill now.

The media has gotten worse even.

The world this day is emo and so hyper. Movies, kids, all so hyper, greedy. Technology so greedy , the ozone is going to shit...

The internet does help to create some very diverse people, I noticed that but everything to me seems to be getting worse. The only thing that makes sense to me anymore is art.

Pop rock...a lame ass sense of style. Not everything has changed but I do see some things that I do not like one bit.

The media knows it better than I , whatever it is and they milk it dry.

Everyone is so spoiled. I was happy on week days watching Heman, or Turtles, Tom and Jerry.That was the high life man.

Tom and jerry is on now, the art work, the frame by frame drawings are beyond impressive. The humor is way better than this hyper almost perverted nonsense in cartoons and the like today.

I think even though technology is better kids are encouraged to be more hyper and stupid.

I blame the 90's ...Tv just is not as good anymore either. I mean live action tv not just the cartoons.

I dont know does anyone relate to this in any way or disagree strongly enough to post

We are too superficial these days and care free about things that should be consider immorale

If you think with that point of view, then we would never evolve from a caveman. Everybody back then thought that fire could be very dangerous, and yet it took lots of time for us to be able to use fire. Why? Because one or more persons decided to give it a try on this new type of invention and with to change its society, even if it was a society of 30 people!

Basicaly, what am I saying is that the world will keep changing, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. Even if our world is turning into crap:inthetoilet:

I try to simply move with adapt to the flow harmoniously.

Most of the things don't really bother me, Loony Toons gets old after awhile, and old movies are extremely boring and seem to blend together for me. Anything from the 40s to me is a snooze fest.

Money is the "problem." Money is a sub-par invention anyway.

Technology can not be greedy and in fact technology has improved life in numerous ways, but I agree that people in general have become more spoiled due to the simple fact that our standards of life have increased so much, being spoiled when you had only a few old turnips and bark bread to eat and would die if you didn't save enough food for the winter was a bit more unlikely...

Art has definitely gone down the drain though, it doesn't make any sense anymore.

The reason for your thoughts going this way is simple: you have become senile.

EDIT:

Men used to be able to cry.

Where did you pull this nonsense from?

Screw that, I like the present.

I like the fact that I can get access to pretty much any information in a matter of minutes.

I like the shows on TV. Some of them are actually worthwhile.

I like seeing sequels to the movies I so enjoyed whilst growing up. Ok, most of the time, there are exceptions.

Sure, old cartoons are cool, but that's why they're still on today. On my last breath I will curse SpongeBob, but kids like him. I'm sure that if I were a child nowadays I might like him as well.

Pop rock isn't all that bad sometimes. It's easy to listen to and it's a damn lot better than the stuff that was on the radio in the 90s.

So what if pornography has become more socially acceptable? It's a step forward, not backwards. I don't see the people having orgies in the street, so I guess we're not completely doomed as a species, if you choose to believe in religion that is.

The ozone has been going to shit for decades, and it's not exactly going to get better anytime soon. We have the economy to thank for that and the way it supports economic supply and demand by sourcing for the lowest price. I don't see the consumers complaining though.

I like being able to communicate easily with people all over the world.

I like sharing my opinion with people who can choose whether or not to reply.

I like the possibility to travel around the world by plane for virtually nothing in comparison to the 90s.

I like technology advancing and bringing me new gadgets no one needs.

Emo started in the 90s. I don't like it, but I can't really tell people what they can and can not like. It will pass in time.

I like seeing the bands I like progress and try different musical styles.

If anything men were not able to cry in the 90s. Again, society changes and adapts. My opinion on that subject is in another thread.

There is no use longing for a time long gone, it's not coming back. You cannot see the sky if you keep looking down all the time.

Cheer up.

The day that we loose the ability to use our emotions in a public eye is the day that we've finally collapsed under a conformative society. May that day never come. As far as pornography goes.. If you're in a higg school clique, you have to watch it.. However it's wrong.. Yet fathers are givin kids their old magazines.. Even though it's wrong.. I give up. As far as the relationship ethics of the modern age.. It pisses me off.. It used to be that you meet someone.. You like 'em.. You date.. And 'for better or worse' live happily (or unhappily) ever after.. My grandmother and grandfather are poler opposites, yet they manage to stay together for what seems of an eternity. This whole "Looking for casual sex" on local classifieds is damn enar sickening.

I'm sick and tired of Cartoon Network.. Yes, their shit is funny.. But they're aiming towards a younger audiance than ever and the values that are being taught by these shows are astoundingly bad.. Possessions, hate and anger, strength over lesser (or ins ome cases) greater peoples by way of fear.. My least favorite character is the 'Mandy' character from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" and the way she treats the Irwin character.. The values are just shot.

Maybe it was because I was finally growing up (though I've always been said to have wisdom beyond my years).. Maybe it's because that's when it really did go south. 1999 was the last year of a thoroughly enjoyable childhood, but there were also several things that happened in my personal life towards the end of that year so I'm not one to judge.
briankory;4023793The media has gotten worse even.[/quote] The media owns the united states of America as part of what I call the Political Trinity of America.. It's and interesting concept, I'll make a pot on it some day :P Media has destroyed this country through a slew of coverups and overreporting.. The only ones who get what they want on the news are the people with lots of money.. 'Six Murder Park' near my area is a prime example.. Six murders in the same park in two weeks.. No news report, no investigation..

Don't get me wrong, it will be an issue.. But it's like Global Warming.. It'll be decades before we begin to see the effects and the way it is described just sounds too good to be true.

Another of the many chains that the world runs off of.
briankory;4023793Pop rock...a lame ass sense of style. Not everything has changed but I do see some things that I do not like one bit.
The style is governed by media (not news, but all media).. That's why americans are either obese or anorexic.. There's no middle ground any more and we all take orders blindly from our 32" boxes that are contantly blabbing on with subliminal messages.

Interesting.. [quote=briankory;4023793]Everyone is so spoiled. I was happy on week days watching Heman, or Turtles, Tom and Jerry.That was the high life man.
That was also childhood.. In Arizona the minimum wage is now $6.75. Say a college student goes to get a job with 3 years of prior work experiance.. He'll prolly get started at $7.50 an hour.. Alright now with school this guy can work 28 hours a week.. That's $210 a week which ammounts to $840 a month which after government taxes (Income for that level is about 20%) $672.. That's $672 after illegal income taxes that are essentially stolen. Alright so we have $672 a month to spend on whatever.. Well College is accross town and dorms are too expensive to let's get a studio apartment.. Whoops that's $510 a month in AZ.. Okie so we have $162 left.. If you already own a car you're golden.. It costs ya $50 a month for gas if you visit your parents/friends on the weekend.. Ok now you have $110 a month which puts you $40 short of your insurance payment on your car if it's an old junker (no sports cars, no red, no black) from 1990 or earlier.. Only way to afford food is to not own a car and get a bus pass which runs ya $40 a month.. That gives to $122 left.. Enjoy it cause you forgot to pay your utilities bill. [quote=briankory;4023793]Tom and jerry is on now, the art work, the frame by frame drawings are beyond impressive.

I have to agree full heartedly.. [quote=briankory;4023793]I think even though technology is better kids are encouraged to be more hyper and stupid.
They are and it's the modern idea of what a kids show should be that's screwing it all up.. They're going for what directly appeals to the brain and not tihnking long-term. [quote=briankory;4023793]I blame the 90's ...Tv just is not as good anymore either. I mean live action tv not just the cartoons.
That's because it is all Reality Shows, Game Shows (which are getting less creative), Sad-ass news, Crappy kids cartoons or reruns of Law and Order and ER.. Don't forget about Oprah though! She wants to tell you how to live! You must obey.. [quote=briankory;4023793]I dont know does anyone relate to this in any way or disagree strongly enough to post
I agree as I said and I hope the above explaines it well enough. [quote=briankory;4023793]We are too superficial these days and care free about things that should be consider immorale

I apologize for the language, but this is what I say to everyone I know.. "Fuck political correctness.. Use your head."

briankory;4023793Is it just me or is everything from back way when better?

Not just you, but i don't agree.

Men used to be able to cry.

Now more than they used to.

Porno was not easily, openly considered for all a morale thing.

Porn is awesome.

Now no one can say porno is immorale.

They can, but now they are in the minority.

The cartoons, like tom and jerry are bloody brilliant. Movies are actually classic back then ranging from maybe up to the early 80's...

T&J were funny, but not really sophisticated, sponge bob churns more grey matter than those two.

I remember such a better world even so young as I was.The 90's , everything is going down hill now.

Things have been, and will for the forseeable future be shit, you are just realising it for yourself now.

The media has gotten worse even.

Hardly, it has gotten more commercial, before they were a tool of the government to spread hate and fear, and still is.

The world this day is emo and so hyper. Movies, kids, all so hyper, greedy. Technology so greedy , the ozone is going to shit...

People change, society changes, technology changes. As for the environment, it was already going to shit in the "olden days" you haven't experienced.

Pop rock...a lame ass sense of style. Not everything has changed but I do see some things that I do not like one bit.

That's what happens when you grow up, you are no longer so impressionable by new things.

Tom and jerry is on now, the art work, the frame by frame drawings are beyond impressive. The humor is way better than this hyper almost perverted nonsense in cartoons and the like today.

Oh yes, the humor was so very deep. A mouse hitting a cat on the head with heavy objects.. Like i said before, Mr Squarepants has that and black humor.

I think even though technology is better kids are encouraged to be more hyper and stupid.

Kids have always been stupid.

I blame the 90's ...Tv just is not as good anymore either. I mean live action tv not just the cartoons.

*coughs*

Lost, Battlestar galactica, The Shield, X-files, Profiler, Sliders, Heroes... could go on for pages.

We are too superficial these days and care free about things that should be consider immorale

The general public has always been superficial and will be for a long time, immorality is in the eye of the beholder, it used to be immoral to look at another woman because you apreciate her looks (putting it nicely), so think before you decide to adopt morals simply because "its been like this for as long as i can remember.
