I was about to say something nice about Google Music All Access, but then I searched for Dead Kennedys and found a disturbing lack of Plastic Surgery Disasters.

Sometimes I'm still startled when I read what I wrote in 1998.

Looking back sometimes is just what you need. I'm at the anniversary of a new job. I'm at the end of a marriage. I'm only at that point for the sake of keeping my daughter safely at home, 'cause other old-school agencies may have made moves otherwise.

I'm also 20 years in the past, remembering a swim meet where my lunch break lead me to both the Butthole Surfers and the Circle Jerks. I'm hearing music that blew my mind when it was new on classic rock stations (Joshua Tree today). I'm using a laptop that's multiple orders of magnitude more powerful than what I was using when I bought the belt that I still wear (it's 23 years old). And yet said laptop is still incapable of a lot. It was $250. My first 2400 baud modem for a Commodore was an amazing $100, IIRC. And the BBS software I ran on my C=64 didn't even support that -- limited to 1200 baud. 

My kids will never see things the way I can, and I suppose it has always been that way. Dunno if it has ever been so pronounced though. My daughter mastered the Roku remote under age 3. What will be her response when I try to explain getting up to change channels on a TV where you had to even watch things you didn't want to?

Consciousness is blooming, and despite the clouds of the establishment, you and I both know what wins. It's not concealment and shadery. It's openness, sharing, and excitement about the future. Not projected earnings on futures.
